Let's see. Friday, we find out the sex of the baby. I thought my mother would be the first to find out after us. She lives close to the office so we were going to drop in and show her whatever we had (especially the DVD). Well, it looks like the Welsh Parents will be driving down Thursday night to actually go with us Friday morning. So I'm trying to find out if my mother wants to go too.
Friday after the ultrasound, Welsh Girl and I are heading out to Marfa for the weekend. We both want to get away real badly and we're not even sure when we're going to make it back out there. We've been going twice a year, but Welsh Girl is not sure how she feels about car travel with a little baby. And then again, who even knows if we'll have the time or energy? She's going to (in theory) write and I'm going to paint and we're going to just relax for a bit. Not for long, though. The big problem with our trips out there is that it's a little hard to drive 8 hours in a day, spend a day and then drive 8 hours the third day. You barely even get to relax.
Last week, we were looking at new places to move to and stumbled across a house. We're going to sign a lease this afternoon. It's pretty awesome. Three bedrooms, pool, within walking distance of library and grocery store, within 10 minute drive of bookstore and all my high geekery shops. We're pretty happy with it. We're going give it another look over and ask a few more questions and hopefully address a few concerns, but realistically, unless it's built on an indian burial ground, we're taking it. And if we're lucky, one day we might even get the chance to buy it. But that's putting the horse before the cart.
This, of course means that after we more in we're going to be throwing a party celebrating the new Satrapic Palace. I can't be sure, but I have an inside information source that tells me you will all be invited. Especially since the Basilissa has ordered me to start having people over to the new house.
That's it for now. Work beckons. :(
I'm stupidly happy
Are the words to that song
I'm stupidly happy
And nothing is wrong
