Yesterday we went over to my mother-in-law’s house and spent the night. We’ve been wanting to spend some more time with her since my father-in-law passed away last fall. Plus, it’s always good to get Nova used to sleeping somewhere else.
Leif was feeling a bit sad as with spring coming, the garden is going to be neglected with Don not around. Plus, it’s his childhood home. He has decades of memories, and his baby daughter may be bee-bopping around, but her grandpapa isn’t around to see her anymore.
Nova is getting better at sleeping through the night, but we forgot the pack ‘n play, partly because there’s a crib at the house. But we found out that the crib can’t come out of the storage room without being disassembled, and in any case, a wheel broke off so it’s crooked. Grandma found a pad, so we put it on the floor, but during the night I kept waking up afraid Nova was going to get up and walk out into the hallway. That turned out to be a needless concern, but she did manage to find a loose cord and get her arm and neck wrapped up in it. Yeah, not good. That was the end of that and we brought her into bed. And now I know why there’s a million warnings on any sort of cords–kids really can strangle themselves that easily. Ugh.
My mother-in-law is holding her own, but she has sciata, so her legs have been bothering her. I’m going to have to start looking for babysitters around here, I think. And I called my parents (they’re due to visit later in the month) and they may have to cancel, as my dad strained some muscle in his back and his legs are now hurting him. I guess we’ll just wait and see.
Oh, and yes, I started reading GTD. Apparently I need to buy a labeler for all the file folders I will be labeling. Exciting stuff, this.
