these are the days
OK, here is the schadenfraude: Pre-natal yoga continues to be a tortuous experience. In a way I'm glad I have the mommies group because the other yoga classmates are not very friendly. The instructor is great, I'm just not a yoga person regardless of pregnancy. And my two top choices for doula are not available. I have three phone interviews lined up next week. I really hope this is finalized before the end of the year; I'm worried because as time goes on the choices become more and more limited. My second top choice told me that she's *just* got booked for April so now it's on to the next candidate.
In work news I've been pulled into the extended Burma team, which was pretty cool, i.e. visit by POTUS. Normally I don't work on Asia issues but my counterparts who do were already on overseas trips so I got the job. On the other hand I had to do a mini-crash course on Burmese agriculture. You can guess: lots of rice.
