    He's on a different grid than the rest of us. But so far, it's holding. We'll see what it's like tomorrow. 

    Nope.  Unfortunately, moved us onto Ercot last year.

    The dog fortunately came inside as soon as he did his business each time I let him out.  Took about 20 seconds each time.  My wife also left some food outside to keep cold because our fridge is coincidentally full.  It froze solid in no time.

    Do you get paternity leave, paid or unpaid? How long?

    It’s not official leave, per say, but we both have modified duties for the spring and don’t have to teach classes, just work with our grad students, work on our research, and various service obligations.  This term, we officially got nothing, but my wife finished designed her class to finish material early so the end was review and I just didn’t realize how mine numbingly difficult this would be.  I made one video lecture a few weeks ago and felt out of breath halfway through it and realized I could barely think.

    overall, we are very fortunate.  The end of this term just messed with me horribly.  It’s mostly overseeing all sections of one course that has caused the worst of it.

  3. Thanks!  The first two weeks, especially, were very tough, but we pushed through them.  It didn’t help that we didn’t have everything we would need, in part because he got here two weeks before his due date, but also because there were some things we just didn’t expect to need until he was older.  It is nice. It to have to run out to Walmart or Target at least once per day anymore.

    fortunately, my wife's parents have also been staying with us to help us out with a lot of things.  This would have been so much harder without them here. My parents came out, too, for a while, which was also good.

  4. I just realized it is Thursday, as I haven’t been looking online at anything or watching at all.

    I imagine the game had started, but I know nothing about any of it.  My pick is Atlanta, though.

    I might not have time to make picks for the upcoming bit anyway. We’ll see, though.

  6. We completely forgot to get candy to give out this year because we didn’t do it the past two years due to the pandemic and we have had a lot going on recently, so it didn’t occur to us to buy any until we went out on our walk early in the evening. We made sure to turn out the lights anywhere near the front door. However, we still had someone ring our doorbell later in the evening.  We just completely ignored it, so I was initially worried we might get an egg or two thrown our way, but fortunately that didn’t happen.

  7. We went for a brief walk around the neighborhood early in the evening and saw some young kids out trick or treating with their parents. One of our neighbors ors had a bunch of decorations and relatives or friends dressed up as vampires for people to take photos with.  It was a nice atmosphere, which was great to see.

    It would have been even better if the church just down the street wasn’t blasting music with heavy bass for hours on end even before their trunk or treat event started, but clearly nothing can be done about that.
