I'm looking forward to having the rest of the summer off. I've got lots of closets to clean, at least five quilts to make, Dodeka paperwork to straighten out, and we're going to be doing some serious reorganization of the house.
You see, the library, which is in one of the upstairs bedrooms, is going down to the first floor room that had been my mother's room. The furniture in the guest room is moving next door to the room that had been the library. The dresser, chest, and twin-size bed from my mother's former room is going into the yellow bedroom that had been the guest bedroom, and -- with the addition of a few pieces of furniture -- is going to be the nursery.
After being the poster child for failed assisted reproduction, Roper and I have found a gestational carrier up in Wisconsin. We had embryos in the freezer from our last in-vitro attempt. The due date is November 21st.
We'd be grateful for good thoughts and experienced advice.
