Things that have been in the house recently:
A sandwich.

New glasses.
A baby.

You might think you're done with babies but then you spend time with one and you can't help but think "awww . . no, that's crazy." How do they do that? Even the cry makes me smile. I love it when this one cries, like the idea of an infant's problems are cute to me or something. I wonder how long that will last with my own kids; I already find myself worrying about how it will feel when I know that they are genuinely depressed or sad or anxious or down on themselves, and that's saying something, because I basically gave up worrying in the fall of 2001, which was kind of a strange time to do that with 9/11 and all, but that's how it happened.

But babies, dang. They are always trying so hard. Everything they do, pure concentration. How do you get that again? I have been trying to listen to less music, and that has helped, but we're not quite there yet.

You can have some of my concentration skillz. I really think it is an OCD thing though, so you may not want that. I don't think I have missed a single word my micro teacher has said all semester so far.

Nice glasses. :)

Tony got some new glasses too! He was all excited about them. He got some transitional lenses, so no more army issued glasses for him.
