In East Boothbay today I was joking that the wholesome sea air, lack of graffiti, and absence of absurd fashion displays was beginning to make me nervous.
In 4 days, we head back to Brooklyn, with mixed feelings. On the one hand, it will be wonderful to sleep in our own bed and to have some time together as a nuclear family after so much socializing. As much as I love Maine, I am looking forward to being on our home turf again.
On the other hand, in a week, Will heads back to work after a month of paternity leave and I have to figure out how to keep this sometimes, er, melodramatic baby happy all day long on my own.
