A bit of exhaustion

7 Nov

So strange to write this, after meeting the 20 people who actually read this blog. With my other blog, which is on work stuff, I’ve gotten used to the juxtaposition of having conversations where you can’t tell how much people are caught up on you, your life, work, and what you’re up to. But with this one, it was many of our in-life friends. In other words, I’m feeling a bit self-conscious.

That said, we had a baby shower this past Saturday, alongside having my mother-in-law in town, and friends in from Boston (and their two kids). And then today Aunt and Uncle from W. Mass came into town, to meet us for brunch. The people we need to thank, for coming and for helping and for hosting and for organizing and for their general good cheer and astounding well wishes, is large. We’ll be doing this individually, and for the rest of our lives. But for now, as they say on the internets, *group hug*

I made strata (recipe from Epicurious, modified to double it, added mushrooms which I sauteed in a big round-robin mess with the onions and spinach – it’s forgiving, put whatever cheese, vegetables you like in), mandel bread (recipe from ye olde Levin Family, NB: a bit tricky to execute), cinnamon rolls (recipe from the Pioneer Woman), and Bloody Mary’s (recipe from Jeffrey Morgenthaler). Add a cake, lox and bagels, fruit salad, and it was a feasty, feasty party.

There was fun and funny and touching. But I’m just tired and content. A little over-stuffed. And baby mama and I are truly thankful.

    Feasty, feasty indeed! We were honored and glad to take part in such joy and merriment, and you were exceptional hosts who did far too much at your own party.

    Thanks for procreating and giving us the opportunity to celebrate ;-)!

    Yeah, yeah. I mean, I agree with Ms. Ivy and all, but I’m really looking for some more snark when I surf over here.

    Gossip about us, already.

    We’re just glad that all of our friends could (indirectly) participate in our sex life.
