First Day (of Meetings)

Can I just point something out about this fountain? It's a snake. That's right, a snake. Look at the fangs. Look at the forked tongue. Look at the gaping maw. And remember that other fountain, where Iain played? The water jets out of coiled rattlers. And the child-sized living tunnels that branch off of this fountain? They're the body of the snake!! And who's a parseltongue? That's right: Voldemort. Think about it.

What a busy day. I headed out to school at 7:30 (a 45-minute walk to the suave sounds of...Ton Loc. That's right, a little Funky Cold Medina) for meetings with my newly-hired cohort. We met all morning, then had a tasty lunch up the hill a bit (and by "a bit" I mean far enough that I could see the top of the State House, looking like a little dial on the radio of Salt Lake City), then one more meeting where all the computer secrets were revealed! (cue dramatic music)

Meanwhile, Iain and The Dad tripped off to the zoo. And get this: THEY FINALLY GOT TO RIDE THE TRAIN. No, really. The Dad reports that sitting right in front is not ideal. Exhaust, apparently.

But they got to see buffalo! So that's a win.

In the afternoon, I hiked back up the hill (94 degrees! OMG! ZOMG!) and collapsed onto the sofa with a cranberry juice. Tomorrow, I get to attend more meetings, and on Friday...more meetings! I'm so psyched about the new year that I couldn't sleep last night until 3am. Let's hope all that walking tired me out for tonight.

But hang on to your hats, people. In exactly one week, the new year will begin for both Mommy and Iain. And there's just no telling what's going to happen, then.

Kudos to you for walking to school. I barely have the interest to walk to the mailbox.

I hope next week is a great one for you.
