We have arrived in Rensselaer. At the moment we’re just hanging out, waiting for the movers to catch up to us. Cal is very fond of having an almost entirely carpeted living space, though his feelings towards the two flights of stairs are somewhat more mixed (as mine will no doubt be soon, once you-know-who really gets crawling).

We’re (mostly) packed and ready for the big move North. Unfortunately, this means giving up the cable Internet connection. Talk to you later!
Not so much fun: spending a half-hour in the automated customer service line with TimeWarner Cable, pressing the buttons I’m being instructed to press if I want to disconnect my service, only to get sent to the sales department, where I’m very politely told that they can’t help me but will connect me to the department that can. By which they mean dumping me back into the automated system, where I again press the correct buttons and get sent to sales, where I’m again politely told that they can’t help but will connect me to the department that can, and so on. After this happened three times, with yours truly offering increasingly desperate insistences that I *am* pressing the correct buttons and that just sending me back to the computer switchboard won’t help, I hang up and try the website, where my only option is to fill out a pretty generic inquiry form. I’m told I should expect a response within 48 hours.
ConEd, at least, made it quite easy to discontinue my service. So that’s something.
For those of you keeping track, here are the scores from today’s 8-month check-up.

Does Pru look more like her mom or her dad here? Anyone?
In an hour or so, we’re off for Albany, to check out our new apartment and store some stuff (old baby clothes, etc) that we won’t need for the next few weeks. If y’all are very, very good, there may be some pictures in it for you. In the meantime, a very happy Venezuelan Independence Day to you all!
