[Comments] (5) Naughty Naughty No No No: I've been bad in not updating. But in my defense, one of the client's sites I've been working at does not allow me to peruse

So what's new? Nothing at all. I work a lot, I run a lot, I sleep not a lot, and I play as often as possible. Our complex gym has been locking me out the mornings, so I've resorted to running outside, of all things. It's really nice to watch the sunrise as I come up over the killer hills at the Newport Beach back bay. I always watch for Uncle Justin while I'm there, but have yet to spot him.

Susie & the Beet have been spoiled the last three Saturdays in a row. I assembled our changing table and figured out how to use the bassinet. I've also learned to appreciate the color pink! I guess people really can change.

[Comments] (3) Think Think Think: I think entirely too much. It's not bad enough that FAS 109 and FAS 123R have my head spinning this busy season. I'm also dealing with the following issues:

A lot of my coworkers are lawyers. One had a law journal on his desk. The cover story was about Warren Jeffs, the so-called Mormon polygamist who was on the FBI's Top 10 Most Wanted List. I tried to explain to my coworker that he's not a Mormon. But back at my cube later I got to thinking about how a lot of Christians don't allow me, as a Mormon, that title. So here I am, on the one hand, proclaiming myself a Christian, all the while denying this man the right to call himself a Mormon with my other hand. I can't seem to rationalize my position in my head, and it bothers me.

Also, Susie and I have been discussing the Beet a lot. I'm very concerned because I really want to instill in her a desire to have a college degree, a career, a happy family, et al. And I'm worried that moving to UT may somewhat stifle this dream. Then I realize that my "daddy knows best" thought process may not even be right for her. So how do you guide and parent without her resenting me doing so? And am I jumping the gun? I mean, all she really wants is a loving home and the occasional bottle and diaper change. Baby steps....

Today for primary we are learning about prophets. Once again, the lesson manual isn't worth the tree desruction it caused to be printed, so we're playing memory with the pictures of the 12 apostles, and I made a crossword puzzle with the names of the latter-day prophets. I had a lot of fun learning about them as I put the clues together.

Susie and I are both kind of hoping this is our last Sunday running the ward for a while.

[Comments] (8) March Madness: Apparently the Beet has decided that March suits her best. I just hope she'll be wise enough to beware the Ides of March. Maybe she wants to be a St. Patty's baby, since it will compliment her Irish name. Who can say?

My coworker, whose daughter is due tomorrow, was born last night. And I got his workload, until my baby comes and I can farm it out myself.

Upon the advice of the sagacious Allyson, we are doing something fun each day until the Beet decides she wants to participate and come out. Today we went for Boba shakes. Susie even tried one of my boba--I'm shocked. I had a strawberry-coconut boba drink and it was fab. How come I've overlooked the combination of strawberries and coconuts for so long?
