Week in review: 24 – 30 January 2022

Yesterday we finally got all the snow I had wished for. It started snowing on Friday and continued all through Saturday. Unfortunately, we learned last year that I am quite accident prone on snow [here]. So this time I decided to rather stay inside and just admire all the snow together with the cats. Rich instead took his cross-country skis out of the closet and went skiing along the East River.

Else, not much happens around here these days. We tried the external cephalic version on Tuesday to turn the baby from breech. For this we spent the whole morning in hospital and two doctors tried to push her around. But she refused to move. I assume she is just as stubborn as her mom – since there isn’t any obvious reason why she is in breech. Well, except for that she seems to like it. At this point it looks like we will have a scheduled C-section in a bit. I’ll take a few more naps until then :-).

|Clicked| I liked this review and wish Aldi had the full product line here in the U.S., too: ALDI LACURA SKINCARE | THE HITS & THE MISSES; great advice for flying with babies – I am sure we will need this in the nearer future: Fliegen mit Baby und Kleinkind; the New York Times has a game to teach us how gerrymandering works: Can You Gerrymander Your Party to Power?
