Back to reality

By K.J. Cardinal

Well, the honeymoon's over, so to speak. Anna will be two weeks old tomorrow and it's back to reality for me right now. In order to ensure that I wasn't on the road when Anna was born, I postponed many trips that I knew I would have to make this fall until this week and I'm kind of bumming about it because I don't get to spend as much time with Anna as I'd like.

At 3:30 a.m. on Tuesday I left for Baltimore and didn't get back until last night. Today, I was at Boston University all day and tomorrow I'll be up at UNH all day. Then, on Saturday night I'm at Northeastern, Sunday I'm at UNH again and then Wednesday it's Albany, N.Y. all day. So, unfortunately there's not a lot of time for cute videos or photos of Anna right now.

The good news is that once November rolls around, I think that things will slow down somewhat for me as most of my travel will subside and many of the big graphic design jobs I have will be completed. So, I'll just roll with the punches, but it definitely stinks when I have to go from hanging out with Angie and Anna every day to traveling around the east coast by myself.

This blog has proven to be a savior for me though because I now have a ton of photos and videos of Anna that I've loaded onto my iPod, so anytime I want to see her face or show her off to others, I can just pull my iPod out of my pocket and voila. So, while it's back to reality at least in reality I'm a dork so I can have such cool technology to help me out when I'm missing my girls.
