S and I decided it had been way too long since we'd played Scrabble, so we got out the board. We started a game on Saturday but ditched it as we ended up going to the concert instead. So we started again. And guess who played EYESORES for a 50 point bonus as his very first move? Needless to say, I did not win!
After a day spent out of the heat, inside with the air conditioning, we decided at the last minute to check out a free concert on the green. The New Haven Symphony Orchestra played. It was a nice evening.
We took an impromptu road trip up north to a seminary that housed a Catholic bookstore. I was hoping to get a baptism gown for Anand's baptism next month, but they didn't have any. Still, it was a nice trip and the seminary was beautiful.
Meghan's mom and I met a few months back when we were both pregnant and going to prenatal exercise class. Meghan was due on June 4 and Anand was due June 20, but in the end, they were born only two days apart! Here they are at our moms' group.
We motivated and got out to the Yale Center for British Art today. I had wanted to see an exhibit they've got up of British Transport posters. I have a few of them up in our apartment. It was a good exhibit and baby was generally well-behaved, although we did need to take him out so I could feed him at one point. But all in all, a good day.
I was generally able to avoid pregnancy brain. Mommy brain, not so much. This morning, I was going to make some pancakes for S from the leftover batter. I poured what I thought was the batter on the griddle, and it started separating and looked very oily. Generally not nice at all. So we got rid of it. Then much later, we found what was actually the batter in the fridge. What was it that I had tried to fry? Salad dressing.
Although we are not planning on traveling internationally any time soon, we thought it would be good to get A's passport sorted just in case. So my goal this week was to get his photo done and get the application completed and accepted at the post office. Just in the nick of time, we achieved the goal! Added bonus: passport fees are increasing in just 4 days.
The excessive heat here has caused a significant increase in the water demand for our city. As a result, there has been sediment in the water that was stirred up in the pipes. The water authority has assured us that it is safe to drink, and that we should just let the sediment fall to the bottom and drink the clear water on top. Um, yeah, I don't think so.
