Observations from San Francisco

1. I am always surprised by the cold here. I see people in scarves in April and scoff...then suffer.
2. Everyone loves to discuss the weather. People are so proud of their testy little microclimates.
3. The Cow Hollow Playground is nowhere near Sausalito, but a trip across the Golden Gate Bridge is always a welcome detour.
4. Alex Glotzbach is the first child I've ever met who is louder than Lucy. She is my new favorite person.
5. "The other side of town" = 3 miles away.
6. Kangaroos are really boring unless they're jumping.
7. Being a full-time parent makes my actual job seem easier.
