I did it! I’m a beautiful genius!
I had big plans to do all the things today, but, after waking up at 11:45 am after nearly 14 hours of antidepressant-side-effect-induced sleep (maybe more on that later), I was pretty sure I’d blown it. However, BEHOLD!
I finally painted the damn tree for the damn nursery so I can do a damn pictorial family tree for the damn baby. Damn. Note to the many family members who have not yet provided photos for this amazing and admirable craft project, in spite of exactly two months of gentle nagging from me: The next phase of the nursery project is me going through shoeboxes looking for that picture of you at my wedding where you are in the middle of eating cake and sneezing at the same time, and you have red eyes and that weird double-chin because it was “taken from a bad angle.” To those of you who have already submitted your completely appropriate pictures: Thanks! The baby will like those.
