Geoff's home Part 2

I really missed Geoff over the weekend. I did get some things accomplished though. All the laundry is done (except what he brought home) and most importantly, I got a new draft ready for my dissertation. But this time, instead of mailing it to my advisor, I'm mailing it to an editor. Yes, I hired an editor. I'm so sick of my advisor telling me to write something one way and then changing it the next time we speak. I hope that by just mentioning that my paper has been through an APA editor will help him focus on the content and not my APA style. I know I make mistakes in my writing but I thought I was at least adequate. My advisor has made me think that maybe my years of teaching 2nd grade has stifled my writing ability. So I hired an expert. Sure hope it helps.
Next weekend we are going to Atlanta on an overnight trip. My dear friend Samantha and her hubby Dan had a baby a few weeks ago. Little Dan Jr. weighed in at 9 1/2 lbs! He's blonde like his mom and dad and is 21 1/2 in. long. I can't wait to meet the little fellow! We aren't planning to make a long trip because what new parents really need long term visitors??? But I must see the little guy. Geoff has already bought him a cute little outfit. I picked out the one for the shower. I can't wait to just smell this little guy and look at his little fingers and toes! In my heart I know that Dan Jr. and Lexi will be great friends! Who knows they may even share the same birthday!!
