A lesbian wife and mother tries her hand at something new. Surely there is a hat that fits out there somewhere!

So Much to Say Wednesday September 24, 2008

Filed under: Daily Life — The Professor @ 11:32 am

It’s been so long since I’ve blogged, that I don’t know where to start.  In fact, not knowing where to start is actually contributing to my lack of blogging.  This makes no sense.  And it stops now.  I’ve decided to do what I usually do when I’m not sure where to start.  Make a list.  With bullets.  So, here are a few things that have happened since the last time.

  • We got married!!!!!  It was beautiful and perfect and fabulous and overall quite a good thing.  There were friends and family and music and food and love and cake and lots of pictures.  I will be sharing pictures very soon.
  • Toad FINALLY took the board exam she has been studying for for months.  Go Toad!  That girl is really something.
  • We finished writing (and actually mailing) our thank you notes.  Susan and Holly have taught us well.
  • We have been getting unprecedented amounts of sleep.
  • I got to see Bella and her parents and her grandparents.
  • Toad has officially adopted Gadget (in an email conversation btw the two of us while we were both at work – quite a ceremony) so that we can avoid the use of the word “step-son”.  At long last, Gadget finally has two mommies.
  • My students collectively bombed their first exam and inspired an impressive volcano of anger that drove my wedding cake laden self straight to the treadmill.  Maybe students aren’t so bad after all….
  • I have a wife now.  Did I mention that?
  • My parents spent some time with Toad’s parents at their new house on their way back to Mississippi.
  • Fall has arrived and I am pretty blissed out by the whole thing.  Windows are open, leaves are falling and that fall smell is in the air.  I LOVE it!  I’m in heaven.
  • We are on the last season of Six Feet Under and I am starting to miss the Fishers already.
  • This weekend (actually starting tmw) we are going to Austin, TX!  I have never been there and I am pumped.  We are going for Austin City Limits and will be staying with family friends.  There is sure to be lots of music and walking and tex-mex and beer and sun and snuggling and at least one margarita.
  • I’m reading a great book called Shantaram.  It is one of the those super long stories that pulls you in and kind of takes you over.  My book club talked about the first 500 pages last night and it was a great discussion.  Lots of talk of culture and faith and goodness and love.  The important stuff.  Making me want to go to India more than I already do.   And eat lots of Indian food.  That too.
  • I married the most beautiful person I’ve ever met.

    Hey there.
    Congrats on the wedding! I’ve been reading your blog for some time now – and I love it! My fiancee (that word sounds SO strange!) and I are planning our wedding now, and I’ve loved reading your blog for inspiration, laughs, and in a strange way, familiarity.
    Anyway, I thought I’d write, finally, b/c you are headed to ACL this weekend and I live in Austin – ACL is great! Enjoy! 🙂

    ps. I know the feeling of knowing you’ve married/are engaged to/have found the most wonderful girl around… how is it possible to be so lucky?!

  6. That is so awesome! Congrats! 🙂

    Found you on TLL and I’ll be back! 🙂
