Yet another place to waste my time....

I signed up for a free trial of this -- one of the things that was especially appealing is how it handles the little thumbnail pictures of your favorite books and music.
I'm not sure yet it will be worth it, but it definitely has some features hootoo does not.....
I have a baby....

I have a baby in my office...
One of my coworkers, who's on maternity leave, stopped by today to tie some things up, and dropped her sleeping newborn off with me for a little while so that she could run around and get some things done. (I virtually never leave my desk, don't get phone calls, and keep my office pretty cave-like, so obviously a happening place for sleeping babies. Although, people also drop their dogs off with me on occasion, but that's another story).
Anyway, I just can't get over how precious she is. I mean, I've been taking care of kids forever -- babysitting, nannying, running the infant rooms in day care centers -- but have never felt the urge to have one of my own as strongly as I do right now.
And clearly, there has to be some biological basis for all of this. I mean, tha baby is doing things that I would never find appealing in anyone older -- making spit bubbles, grunting in her sleep, making intensely bizarre faces. And yet I feel undeniably gooey inside.
I'm single, and may well always be so. I had always figured that if I was still single by the time I could afford to buy my own house, that I would look into adopting an older child or two. But in this moment, right now, I just can't imagine going through my whole life without this. At the same time, though, dealing with a newborn is difficult, challenging, stressful, and exhausting enough when you have two adults at home -- I don't see how I could ever do it on my own.
