Finishing this dish with lime zest and juice brightens its rich flavors.

Kicking Around

Gee, I am really doing a disappearing act lately. I thought things would get less hectic after the job interview. I am feeling better but Keegan and I both still have the runny nose. I am so over being sick! Die germies, die.
We did get to go to swimming lessons on Sat. It actually wasn't that bad getting up at 6:30 and poor Keegan had no idea what hit him. Mommy actually woke him out of a dead sleep for a change. Now the swimming lessons aren't very structured but that make sense for infants. We played some games and sang some songs but mostly just paddled around. The pool was delightfully warm and made me less sorry I had driven out to the boonies. Put it this way, in order to get to the facilty to have to turn by the State Women's Prison (where P*am Smart did her time). Way out there.
So we'll finish this session and then reconsider the drive for the winter months. I do like having that activity time with him, especially since I will be going back to work soon. Plus there are two babies we know from mom's group which I won't be able to go to after returning to work. Maybe I can come up with something else we can do together on weekends.
I got a call back from the people I interviewed with. They wanted a number for a reference check. I consider that a very good sign indeed. Let's keep keeping those fingers crossed. So now I am deep in the search for daycare. I read up on the licensing regulations and found a referral service. They will send me all the facilities that meet my specifications. Then I will start doing visits. They also send you tips on what to look for and questions to ask. I do wish I knew someone here that could give me a personal referral. But I'll do my homework and go with my gut instinct for the final choice.
