Transition

Hello all - Well, somehow we did it. We managed to fit a three bedroom apartment into a space that might, in any other situation, make a good sunroom... a SMALL sunroom. That sunroom was actually a Penske truck that is currently parked at some motel in Nebraska with my husband and father in law who are so kindly making the drive out to Las Vegas for the exciting reward of moving all that stuff into a storage facility. Hey! Nobody ever said we don't know how to live. it. up. Some people go to Vegas for the Strip and the gambling. My husband and his dad go for the good times that come with moving large heavy boxes and sleeper sofas.
Question: if what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, are our future masters degrees going to be worth a damn in any other city? What if we have another baby there? I'd like to keep all my children. Thank God Maya happened in Chicago. I just feel so sad for her little brother or sister; I mean, I'm not staying in Vegas forever. I hope they like it!
Now I'm sitting in my parents' basement while Maya probably is having nightmares about this new sleeping situation. She likes the familiar, my friend. She likes the familiar. We're here until Will flies back in on Friday at which point we'll all drive out to Montana. God love Will. Poor guy has to drive 27 hours to Vegas, fly back, and then drive 24 hours to Montana with, very likely, an unhappy baby, an uncomfortable dog, and a wife who will be engrossed in Travel Yahtzee. (Have you tried it? It's addicting, I tell you!)

I just caught a glimpse of the Maya bath flikr picture. Too funny!

It sounds like things are going as smoothly as possible given the circumstances. Bug has surprised me with her powers of adaptation. Hopefully Maya will follow suit.

The "staying in Vegas" stuff cracks me up! Thank God for a great sense of humor, that will serve you well in the coming weeks. Maya will learn to go with the flow, like her parents obviously are so great at doing.

The weather is nice in Montana.... a bit rainy, but gorgeous these days.... I'm sure a snow storm is on the way.

Oh, and travel with baby.... Dinosaur Ritz.... the BIG box.
