Entry-ish

This is only an entry-ish as I am feverish and miserable with a cold. I don’t get sick that often, so I’m unafraid to complain complain complain when I do. But I know that’s boring, especially when you don’t get the full effect of my ruby-red nose. So I’ll keep it to a minimum here.

You know the best thing about this virus? It didn’t hit until late Sunday night. So while it is upending my work week in a really bad way (I actually drove home today to lay on the couch for half an hour and then drove back to my office.) it did not interfere with the colossally fun time we had in Atlanta.

Highlights include my first face-to-face with:
— with her fine, fine cakes and a snake-charmer effect on Alden.
— ‘s all-in-one-piece self plus P, Anya and Ezra who were all kind enough to be exactly as appealing and clever as I envisioned.
— brought her laid-back cool and her I’ll-see-you-one-darling-boy-and-raise-you-two.
Also a much needed catch-up with:
, , as I had never even met their lovely daughter. I also enjoyed a dinner visit from and a surprise appearance by .

And that doesn’t even begin to dig into all my friends who aren’t on LJ.

I had the best time. And if your name is listed above then you are why.

Last night we were happy, though, to be back in our bed. Every time a train went by in the middle of the night Alden would stroke my cheek until I opened my eyes and then he would whisper “go go,” which I’m pretty sure is his first crack at “choo choo.” I would whisper, “Yes, choo choo” and then he would smile and go back to sleep.

  1. Oh, I had the best time meeting the three of you. I can’t wait to see you again. If I weren’t heading off to the sheep festival the weekend of the 24th, I’d come see you in Knoxville and bring a whole new kind of cake.
    I was tickled bright orange with Alden’s nose glee. I’m going to teach him how to make freakishly realistic barnyard animal noises.
    Feel better, pudd’n.
