Around the world, around the world

Cranky Lyra calms down and sleeps when we play Daft Punk for her. I guess some things carry over from the womb…

On Wednesday I broke down and went to Capilano Mall with Anne & Lyra to sign up for Telus TV. It’s going to be a couple of weeks before it’s hooked up – in the meantime I guess I’ll watch the Olympics (very fuzzily, since CBC comes in pretty craptastically on the rabbit ears.) The opening ceremony this morning was really good (to be fair, though, I slept through most of the countries’ athletes walking in, because I was desperate for just a little more sleep and that part was dull.) The choreographed stuff and the torch lighting was great, though.

Maybe I’ll start playing Final Fantasy VII sometime soon.

Adam’s been sick all week. He went back to work Monday and was sick by Tuesday. He stayed home yesterday, then went in this morning and came back within a couple of hours. This basically means that he’s avoiding both Lyra and I – he’s afraid he’s going to give his cold to us. I asked the midwife about it, and she told me that as soon as my body detected the illness it would have created antibodies in my breasts milk within about twenty minutes. How awesome is that?? Anyhow, to be safe, Adam hasn’t been picking Lyra up or anything, which has been tiring for me. However cranky she gets, however tired I get, however much I need a shower, I have to figure it out on my own for now. It’s been a bit frustrating at times, but I think I’m handling it okay. I’ve had a couple of people come by to hold her and entertain her for me so I can do other things, which has helped. For my sanity, however, I really hope Adam gets over this sickness soon. Also, for his health…

Lyra’s asleep in the car seat at the moment, and I’m playing Daft Punk and other similar style upbeat funky or techno music to keep her there for a while. If there was any question that this was Adam’s kid, that should nullify all doubts.

I’ve taken some more photos of her, but my CF Card reader broke. I need to get a new one – they have one at London Drugs, maybe next time I venture out for a walk I’ll stop in and pick it up. Stupid 6-in-1 card reader on my laptop doesn’t have CF.

Yesterday I took Lyra for a walk with spadoink‘s wife and dog. I’m trying to get out for good walks at least a couple of times a week. I walked down to the Quay with Ian on Wednesday, too. I have the baby in the sling when I walk for added exercise potential (and because it’s easier than the stroller.) I need to get myself in shape again. I’d really like a bike trainer I can use in the apartment… I miss biking.

    Graham likes Red Hot Chili Peppers. So, yeah, I think our kids remember what we listened to while they were cookin’.
