Claire is apparently having too much fun to think about Motherhood.

I feel like I am playing Calendar Frogger. My absolute-must-attend meeting on August 15 is now safe — whew — because even if Claire came in season today, we would have 10 - 11 days before we would have to start the party.

But now I am worried about another really-need-to-be-there on August 21/22 — and then classes start.


Everything feels so up in the air.

Because it is.

And there are two ends to all this — I am also watching when puppies will be born, thereby grounding us for two months.

And I would REALLY like to have the puppies born before November so that I can show mine at the Specialty. There is not much time left for that — if Claire comes in season tomorrow, puppies would arrive on/about October 24, and that doesn’t leave much room before November.

I am thinking it would be fun to have puppies on Berkeley’s third birthday — October 25. Therefore, I shall inform Claire that Saturday (or Sunday) is her day to get going on this project. I am sure that will work, don’t you?
