I've hinted to Vans that a "great" having a baby gift (ahem, I'll find any reason/occasion to say a gift is necessary) would be to "hire" our old cleaning lady for the months that I am on maternity leave! If I think it is hard maintaining the house now while pregnant, I can't imagine doing it with a newborn while also picking up the Peanut from daycare each day. Alas, I also forget that being home on "maternity leave" with my very (VERY) small office also means my income is very much reduced for the summer . . . if I get any income at all that is (near the end of my leave it is completely unpaid). I know so many stay at home moms that can do it all. I read those blogs ... they cook, they clean AND they watch their kids at home instead of sending them to daycare. I bow to them. I commend them. Unfortunately, I am just not one of them! However, it looks like I am going to have to learn to be this summer . . . or at least figure out a way to fit it all in. Wish me luck.
On to more exciting things . . . photos from the Tour of California . . . and Tahoe.
Playing in the SNOW at the bike start ... normal right?
Sky Team's bikes
The Shack Team's bikes
Waiting for the start . . . or rather the announcement that the race was cancelled
Still happy no matter what!
