Take Me Out to the Ball Game

Well Nate and I figured if we aren't getting any sleep, we might as well have fun while we are awake. We got a little reminder of home as we cheered the Red Sox on in their 6-1 victory over the O's! Scarlett was amazed by the first three innings and then slept through the rest. (This gave her just enough energy to wake for 2 hours at 2:30 am!!) Go Sox!

Just a stage

Well I have composed so many cute blog entries in my mind that I have not posted. Man, they would have been great. I wanted to write about so many things, but I haven't.
I have not been accomplishing much lately. I have also not been sleeping much lately. Scarlett has been up about every two hours for a few nights. Naps are a thing of the past (thank the Jumpy seat for this entry!)
But I only have 1 more week of my first grad. class--I have finished my first research paper in years! My huge stack of ungraded papers is slightly smaller (with some help from an AWESOME sister). And best of all, 35 more days of school!!! I have been to the gym 4 times a week for the last three weeks (SO sore). I even left Scarlett with my mom overnight for the first time and went to a wedding and had a great time.
So my house is a mess--Scarlett's first pea-eating attempt: a tableau of green hilarity still evidenced in the kitchen, my luggage from the night away: vomiting all over the living room floor, mail: scattered, towels: unfolded, surfaces: undusted. Spring cleaning? Well lets just say that it has been a long winter!
I have come to the conclusion that a good day is one where I am patient enough with my students (especially the naughty ones) that they learn something, Scarlett has fun and feels loved, and Nate and I spend a few minutes together. Anything more is bonus!

Go Penguins

On Tuesday Scarlett stayed out past her bedtime to enjoy her first NHL game. Her favorite moment: the flashing lights. Least favorite moment: when everyone screamed and cheered. All in all she had a blast!
