1. 7:00 (car horn next door), and also 7:20 (alarm clock).

2. Steel-cut oats with apple, raisin, and brown sugar.

3. I had black coffee with breakfast.

4. I am in my "home office" space, while my baby girl is napping upstairs.

5. I had lunch. It was some homemade macaroni and cheese, a veggie-burger-type patty (I don't usually buy much of that, but they were on clearance!), and some carrots and celery with a yogurt-y dip.

6. I am wearing dark blue jeans, a warm thermal-ish waffle shirt in light blue, and my crocs slippers (hideous, but warm and comfy).

7. Seems to be in the 70-ish range, as tested via my finger on my throat.

8. I checked the New York Times website quickly, a little while ago.

9. My wife. My baby. Um, that's it. 2.

10. I'm just going to play games with the baby until my wife gets home. Then, time to shovel the drive, after which we'll begin baby's dinner and bedtime rituals. Then, tonight, I'll make some supper and do some email catch-up, work that needs to get done, class prep, and the like.

11. I would like to get out of the house. But it's too darn cold and the car's snowed in and I can't shovel in the frigid outdoors with a baby. Also, I can't just walk anywhere, because nobody has shoveled their walk yet, and anyway I'm in crappy Michigan with nowhere to walk to. (And I'm slightly cranky about that, today!)

12. Everything changes, all the time. This too shall soon be past.
