Summer is so tough to find time to write. I’ve got a lot to say believe me I mean c’mon who am I? But Roan and I are committed to staying busy by remaining in our PJ’s until at least 11:00 am in honor of the Summer Relaxation Code, Version 2. And during that time we are committed, as in, religiously committed to watching Anime together. I’ve found in my extensive experience that a parent simply cannot assume that any Anime series is going to be appropriate for their kid to watch just because a few episodes were appropriate. They sneak stuff in, suddenly and without notice that totally blows my mind because could a group of animators and story tellers really really really think it was ok to introduce a pedophile doctor as a “ha ha ha that’s pretty funny that he likes young girls and let’s set him up in a school environment and….” well….I’m just saying, I’ve ben left with a “huh?” feeling many times as I’ve had to turn an otherwise awesome series off. So I watch with him, every minute of every episode. Luckily I love Anime. Otherwise I would just have to do the smart thing and say it’s all off-limits.
But I digress.
I have a bunch of things I’ve wanted to write about. But no time. So I’m just going to have to expedite things here, and give the bullet points of the hamsters going round in my head:
- Pregnant with twins. Everything is right as rain, all my vitals are great except I am “anemic in the extreme” so says my doctor. I’ve been put on iron, mega dose level. I’m taking three doses a day. This could leave a person somewhat…how do you say…constipated. I’ve been told Metamucil daily will hep regulate me, but I’m wondering how many pills/supplements/ gross tasting powders I should really be taking. Any advice readers?
- Pregnant with twins. I’m going to need things. I know the basics, but am wondering if there’s anyone out there who found a chair they could nurse two babies at once in? I’m supposing at night when I get up (not that any baby of mine would dare wake me up at night…) I’ll want a place to plant my keister to nurse these guys. Bed? Floor? Upstairs to the couch (I’ll just answer that. No way am I going up and down stairs in the night multiple times. No way Jose.) What’s the answer people?
- Pregnant with twins. Our new home has two big bedrooms. Roan gets one, and the rest of us get the other. I think I’d like to divide it up a little, but we’re not allowed to put up walls. The space is big (especially by Brooklyn standards), easily big enough to divide up into two spaces. How would you do that? Curtains? Bookshelves? Robots? If anyone – especially NYC people – have great ideas about separating spaces – let me know!
- Pregnant with twins. New place has NO dishwasher. Am I crazy to think I’ll be cool hand washing all our dishes? Should I get a portable dishwasher? We’re going to have a lot of bottles, methinks. Should I just leave everything in the sink until Anson gets home? Could the lack of a dishwasher end my marriage?
Ok, I know I’m asking a lot from my readers today, but this is what monkey-brain looks like. I have it. You are witnessing it. Enjoy the spectacle!
