Well, let's see, the biggest update is that we know now that this little one is a boy. Crazy. Today, at church, I was watching the four year-old classroom, and we had 11 boys and two girls. I can only consider it prep, and I came home totally wiped out!

Yesterday, Dave and I went to the symphony; as usual, we were not disappointed. This was a matinee show featuring Chris Botti and his touring band, backed by the ASO. Every musician on that stage was insanely talented, and watching the drummer was like watching a hummingbird. I've never seen drumsticks move like that. Dave could provide more color, but all I can really say is that it was wonderful.

And then there was dinner. I cannot express how amazing our food was at R. Thomas last night. We have always enjoyed our meals there, but yesterday was exceptional. Dave had the wings, and I had a burger topped bacon and guacamole and home fries on the side. We finished with turtle cheesecake and mango pie. Nothing we ate was less than spectacular.

New Adventure

Today I embark on a new project: the great closet reorganization. There are a few factors driving this, which all of course, stem from the impending arrival of J. Bella.

First of all, most of the clothes in my closet don't fit anymore, so I have been pulling clothes that do fit from a pile in our spare bedroom. That is not going to work any longer. But, there's a problem. The other two closets are full, so where to put those clothes that don't fit? And finally, one of the other closets that is currently full of my clothes, will be full of J. Bella's clothes in about five months.

I'm sure this will take more than a single day, but today is the day that it begins. Maybe I'll even take some before and after pictures. We shall see.
