Sam sleepingBack at home now. All three of us, about 8:00 last night. Still not back online yet, though, not really. The time I did spend on the computer was spent following up on emails from work, getting ready to go back to the office tomorrow. The office seems to do pretty well without its computer guy for a few days, but there’s still a few people waiting for me to come back and fix a thing or two. I did poke my head into the blogosphere long enough to notice a congrats from Doc Searls, though. Thanks Doc!

Our first twenty-four hours at home was pretty hectic, as you can imagine. It’s a little different when there isn’t a nurse call button two feet away from you. And Viola may have been discharged, but she’s still basically bed-bound. Or La-Z-Boy bound, as the case may be. And my mother’s here, but she’s here on vacation, so I can’t expect her to do too much. So I’ll give you one guess as to who’s left to take care of Viola, change the diapers, and do a dozen other little chores. But I think that sitting here right now, with this cute little guy sleeping in my lap (in a baby sling, no less) and sucking on my pinky finger, makes it all worthwhile.

It’s been a wild six days. Tomorrow things start to get back to normal, even though what used to be normal is now long gone. From here on out, we’re going to have a brand new definition of normal.
