Hello from Amtrak, y’all. I’m riding home from DC, a little later than scheduled because of engine problems, in a freezing cold but otherwise nice coach car. The baby shower was fun and non-showery. I had a good time on the trip in general, talking to friends and eating hamburgers and taking pictures of cars wearing belts.
Now we are nearly in New York at last. I’ve been making notes for a birth plan. They are a little defensive. Lots of “be nice” in there; probably exactly the kind of thing that doesn’t get read. More on that later.
I should also probably make some better packing notes for my next trip. Item one:
This time, remember to bring underwear.
