Compelling Humility

And when our baby stirs and struggles to be born it compels humility: what we began is now its own.
– Margaret Mead

You’ll be pleased to know that since my last posting, I have taken the fitness declaration to heart. Literally, I guess, since my heart has been working overtime. My muscles too didn’t realize what they were in for (Indeed, I’ve received several unfair labour petitions from the muscles’ shop steward. I’ve responded by increasing the tempo even further – take buttercup!). But while I may have a few sore muscles, I do feel better. Better rested. More energy. It is really amazing how quickly you can feel the impact of basic physical exercise.

The baby’s room is coming along nicely. The walls have been painted (mostly) and the new floors come next week. The house is a crazy mess right now – which is freaking the dog out – but hopefully it’ll be better by Christmastime.
