Calvin made noises throughout the night but didn’t actually wake up till 5:45. I gave him a bottle and he dozed for another 45 min.

Good thing Nana was here today. I had emergency work on a work server and would have hated to put Calvin in daycare this early.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Nov 17, 2009 9:57 AM
I was originally planning on taking Calvin to daycare before taking Nana to the airport.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Nov 17, 2009 9:57 AM
However, he still hasn’t had his morning nap so maybe I’ll take him to the airport and let him nap then.

Calvin took a very good nap on the way to the airport. He didn’t wake up till I dropped him off at daycare.

Calvin does not have an ear infection and now weighs 20lbs 3 oz (with his diaper).

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Nov 17, 2009 10:59 PM
I’m having the worst time falling asleep tonight :( Watch, Calvin’s going to want to get up at 4.

Apparently an uptime of 72 days is too long for a Windows VM desktop. I guess I should be grateful it worked at all.

Calvin had another restless night.

Calvin has raised my expectations for small mammals. I keep expecting the cats to answer when I ask them questions.

From daycare (part 1): “Calvin liked pointing to the different parts of his face during circle time today. He was great at it!”

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Nov 17, 2010 8:09 PM
From daycare (part 2): “He loved lunch today, especially his pie :)” (They had daycare provided “Thanksgiving” lunch today.)


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Nov 17, 2011 6:16 PM
From daycare, “Calvin had fun dancing like a kitty cat.”


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Nov 17, 2013 11:18 AM
Calvin can make really weird sounds. I didn’t realize some of these sounds could be made by a human.

My manager has said that I should try to stay within normal work hours this week. So, we may actually eat real food.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Nov 17, 2014 5:46 PM
Possibly not working extra today was overly optimistic.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Nov 17, 2015 6:53 AM
Hm, there does not seem to be snow.

Julian woke up from a 4 hr nap and promptly demanded kiwi and cheese. He ate 3 kiwi and I was starting to worry I was going to run out.

I am out of baking powder at egg and I promised my kids muffins. Trying sweet potato instead of egg (no applesauce, banana or flaxseed in my house at the moment). I guess I’ll just do baking soda and hope for the best . . .

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Nov 17, 2018 8:10 AM
Oh! I have cream of tartar. That was unexpected.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Nov 17, 2018 9:13 AM
The muffins stuck badly to the muffin pan but other than that they seem perfectly normal.

At the zoo. Julian’s jumping up and down and shouting , “Go penguin go!”
Julian, with his back to us, stands in front of a wall of glass with greenish water on the other side and a penguin frolicking.

We are firmly in the clouds this morning. It’s very refreshing!
View of a deck with some green bushes visible but most things past the deck are obscured by the thick white fog.

So . . . could we all agree not to go to in-person conferences right now? _Especially_ if they’re about COVID-19.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Nov 17, 2020 8:46 AM
I get there are things about in-person conferences that are harder to replicate online. But could we try??

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Nov 17, 2020 9:18 AM
I really need to stop reading the news today. SFUSD is ordering school administrators back to work in-person so they can get use to showering again (!!!??).

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Nov 17, 2020 9:23 AM
Ok, finished reading the article. Apparently they’re reconsidering. Look, sometimes you need people on site but there needs to be a good reason.

Good news, I have reached the limits of the internet. No one has design suggestions for an irregular heptagon living room.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Nov 17, 2021 9:35 PM
As @calvinsdad mentioned a while back, I have a living room layout that works for now ( However, it still feels slightly off to me.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Nov 21, 2021 10:41 PM
I created a requirements doc for the living room with contributions from @calvinsdad and Calvin. I stayed up way too later last night and have a new plan. Now that I have a plan, I can target my used furniture searches better.
Living room layout. Furniture on right side anchored by a round rug. On the lift is the media cabinet and tv. Across from the TV is the couch. The round swivel chair is perpendicular to the couch. The couch and the swivel chair have a c-table.  In front of the fireplace, with is at a 45 degree angle from the TV, are two round ottomans. Behind the sofa is a narrow console table with a lamp and books. In the awkward corner to the left, next to the built-in bookcases, is a round table with four chairs.

I was originally planning to put the Eos swivel chair in the awkward corner. However, Calvin really wanted it close enough to lounge in while watching TV. Upon reflection, I realized a table could work in the corner for things like puzzles, writing, or electronic-free homework.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Nov 21, 2021 10:41 PM
The two round dots in front of the fireplace are intended to be ottomans that can be easily moved to where we sit or provide additional seating. Behind the sofa I’m hoping to get a narrow console table we can put another light on.
