we are back and we all survived.
the trip to tulsa was uneventful -we just hung out, ate food, and enjoyed eachothers company. the trip to tulsa was eventful because we got to introduce naterade to the tulsa friend family! it was wonderful (as expected). he tolerated the car ride pretty well. (it took a leeeeeeetle longer than anticipated and he was quite fussy at the end each way.... that is a long time to be strapped in a carseat... thank god i am flying to STL with him in a few weeks. ) he slept pretty well in tulsa and was only moderatly more fussy than normal with all the peoples.
gustav is causing some SERIOUS rain action in the great state of arkansas. it seems to fit my mood today. i don't want to step one foot out the door today.
i have nothing entertaining to tell you. I feel bogged down by cleaning (TOTALLY SPOILED BY THE CLEANING SERVICE we had coming every other week while i was preggo!).
i am just trying to enjoy baby nate in the final weeks before he starts daycare and i start work again. we met his 'teachers' and toured his 'classroom.' it's nice and i feel confident about leaving him there. boo. i am totally bipolar about the whole situation - some days i can't wait to go back to work, some days i can't imagine going back to work. but i am going! i know (for now) it is the right choice for me and our family. sigh.
