Signed, sealed, delivered, I'm yours.

This weekend was full and filling — pizza with friends, Japanese church, and finally giving in to the truth that we need a car. True, I've been talking about how great not having a car is,  and while it is, indeed, great for me, Stephen, it's not great for my family. It's not great if we want to go anywhere together, or do anything together. I don't want to think about how much we're going to have to spend — it's a lot, it's too much. I'm anxious just thinking about it. I need to focus instead on the weekends in Cambridge and Oxford and London and Birmingham.

We went to see the midwife and we discussed having our little baby in the house. Yoko asked, What, do they put a tarp down? I'm not sure, I said, I don't remember having a baby being that messy. I don't think you would need a tarp. A towel, at most.
