Today I ran on base to get Rowan her passport photographs, as well as the money order for her passport and Consular Report of Birth Abroad. I even did a bit of food shopping, and made sure to treat myself to some Sweet Tarts.
At home, I finished my husband's last college application and submitted it, filled out Rowan's applications for her CRBA, passport, and Social Security card, did dishes, put too-small newborn outfits in a bag to take to the thrift store, and started putting away a load of cloth diapers that just came out of the dryer. Phew!
I still need to work on Gavin's lesson plans. There are only a few subjects left, and I will be able to share his Year 5 schedule and plans once I am done.
Then there's writing: editing my manuscript and getting a post up on Pagan Square.
Today has been more productive than most, and I am grateful for that. Being productive is quite hit or miss with a newborn, isn't it? And I'm not very good at cutting myself some slack. Yesterday was pretty difficult. Sleep on Sunday night was really sporadic for a change, but when the hubby told me to nap yesterday, I answered, "Sleep is inefficient". Yes, I slept much better last night.
That doesn't mean I couldn't use a nap today. I'm really not used to only sleeping 6 hours a night. However, I'm pretty lucky compared to most parents of infants. I mean, 6 hours total, while it's actually dark outside? Not bad at all.
Alright. Speaking of doing something "inefficient" - yes, you can just call me Seven of Nine - I need to wrap up this post and get to that basket of clean diapers. After all, they won't stuff their own inserts.
