Pregnancy was no great fun either -- worth doing, and it was sort of nice the way people tried to take care of me (strangers, friends, family, Kevin). But horribly full of discomforts and pain. So it really throws me when I run into someone like this, who clearly loved the parts I found so hard and unpleasant. Did you guys who have kids love the pregnant/newborn stages? Am I just an oddball?
We're having a pretty nice quiet day here today. I got some e-mail and photo editing done this morning while watching Kavi -- then Kevin came down and watched her for a couple of hours while I read some history for class. My quarter is over -- I just turned in grades, so although I have a few little things I want to send to my students, and one I want to meet with sometime soon, I'm essentially on spring break right now. Which means I've started cramming hard for the AA Lit class I'm teaching starting March 31. Now I'm back on baby duty while Kev's off teaching -- he's on the semester system, so our breaks are a bit different. Kavi is amusing herself pretty well crawling around the living room, exploring, so I'm going to try to catch up a bit more on e-mail while half-watching design shows on HGTV. This evening, I'm making Thai green curry chicken for our dinner, yum. Peaceful Friday.
Tomorrow, Jarmila is coming to watch Kavi -- I'm hoping to do some serious lesson planning AND work on my new website design. We'll see how it goes. CSS will not defeat me!
