Yes, it is spring. Robins and grackles and starlings everywhere, and the geese going north above our heads. And the snow drops and crocus and even dandelions by the south facing walls. Now is the time you are supposed to come out of hibernation.
It's funny though, how it works. You grow a little heavier, a little clumsier day by day. The sprout is active during the night and keeps you awake. And the days pass faster and faster, leaving little time for everything you wanted to do except the daily grind and the necessary tasks. And then a new family member, and the life changes forever.
Less than two months to go now. The daughter will be a big sister, and we will be parents of two. I don't know how anything is going to be, but I realize that this blog is already a very low priority and it's better to officially pronounce it sleeping until... later. Maybe I'll be back in summer, after mid-June or so.
