Desperately Seeking... Help!

A few weeks ago, a harsh reality set in for me.  I had been thinking that as soon as the semester was over and I was rid of the firm time commitments that I was going to have all this free time to do stuff.  The reality for me seems to be that when you aspire to do less, trading it in for that hypothetical "all the stuff that I have been waiting to do", nothing really happens.

Where's this post going?  To tell you that I have joined a fitness center for all the wrong reasons. Getting in shape? That would be ok. Losing weight? Well, that would be a nice side benefit.  No, I joined our local fitness center for the childcare.  Without a schedule, I can go and do something for me without calling a babysitter or pleading with Toolman for help.

Painting the Nursery

Yes, CRB is 20+ months and I am just now getting to this.

Our painter started Wednesday evening. I cannot wait to see how it turns out.

First Haircut

I have been putting off CRB's first haircut for several months. He could have used one in November, definitely by January, ridiculously so by March, and by April friends and family quit remarking on how it was time.

So June 5th it was, and who better than the lovely Amanda who rid me of the purple hair to do the honors!

Weeks ago, Amanda and I discussed that one of my hang ups was that I did not want him to look any different. He's growing up so fast and that is more than enough change for me. I need him to have those baby curls in the back and I cannot handle his hair to look too structured, but at the same time I would like him to look less "hooligan."

Here's a link to a slideshow of the event. We don't have a photo of the final results because, well, by then we needed to leave the salon, but he looks absolutely precious, and he still has some curls.

Helter Skelter

As covered by U2 not the Beatles...

I have so much to catch you up on, CRB's first haircut, joining the fitness center, a trip to the pool, my "switch" to a Mac, and so on.

So be excited, a post a day for awhile.

First up: the haircut.
