The Samuel Tapes

Samuel and I were playing around with recording "podcasts" the other day.  Some results posted below.

Jeannie and I are in the process of buying a new bed.  The mattress has been purchased, and is currently on our bedroom floor (a Casper mattress, one of those online ones you've probably heard advertised on Car Talk or The Savage Love podcast -- so far, so good, but I'm interested to see how it holds up over the years), and now we've got to pick out a big ol' grownup bed frame and maybe some bedside tables to go with it.  This purchase has Jeannie officially freaked the fuck out.  She's not good about spending money in big chunks.  I think we're at the point in our lives where we're starting to deserve nice things.  We work hard, dammit, and we're middle age-ish, and I want to have more than 1.5 feet of space in my bed when I sleep.

But, we did a bunch of shopping this weekend, and Jeannie found something that she thinks looks good, which was more than I was expecting to happen, so we might be getting close to completing this purchase.

Anna's #1 form of movement is now walking, which is pretty exciting.  She's totally pleased with herself, and she's pretty good at going up steps, too.  It's kind of amazing, I think, that it doesn't take kids long to figure out steps once they've started walking.  At least, it didn't take Samuel or Anna a long time.

Almost done with the R&J student matinees, which means I'll be done taking down and putting up the Macbeth set all the time.  Which is great.  Although, it really wasn't that bad.  If ChesShakes decides to have student matinees year-round, and switching sets becomes just a daily part of my job, I think I could live with it.

Gotsta poo.
