Just stumbled on this thread again, how goes the job and the pregnancy Zach? Trotter, Trottette and little Trottees all doing well?

Matt,

thank you very much for asking. as a matter of fact, I just got back to my hotel, after a day spent with the movers, moving stuff into our new apartment. we took a great place, 3 blocks from the beach and 3 blocks from a train station, in a great neighborhood, that is a lot like where we lived in new york - green and relativly quiet, but you can walk places and there are resteraunts and pubs and coffee shops and a dry cleaner etc within walking distance. there are also 10 play grounds within a 10 minute walk. we are very happy with the new place.

my wife and son seem to be happy enough with the move - both will miss there friends, but such is life. my wife's friends threw her 2 parties and one for the whole family, as well as a whole bunch of other celebrations, and gave us pretty much everything we need for the twins. I was amazed at the outpouring of love - after moving around all my life, with no body ever giving me a going away party, I am very impressed at my wife. my son wasn't happy to leave his friends, but he is happy to be in a new school with a pool, and to live across the street from a playground. the twins are developing nicly, and even though they aren't due for another 3 months, my wife is as big as she was with my son at full term. she is not very happy about that part.

work is going well - I am very happy with the people I am working with, I am very happy with the conditions, the challenge still looks both fun and doable. I just got back from a 3 week trip to visit my exisitng distributors in asia and australia, and enjoyed it and gotten a good idea of what needs to be done to achive my goals.

I have been able to buy myself a few ties from chuck and some new shirts from rick, and feel like a new man.

the one wrinckle has been that I sent out an email giving about 300 people my new email and telephone number, and 3 people from my old company called me to ask me for a job. I told them that that "I couldn't talk to them about a job, because my non-compete was still in force and we should talk in a few months" basically to be polite. my old boss, the big shit, sent me a letter threatening to sue me, and basically trying to bully me about a little dispute we had a while back about compensation. so I had to get a lawyer to exchange letters with his laywer. but I am trying to get him out of my thoughts and get on with life.

so, thanks for asking, all is good in the trotter household.

Trotter - Dude... can I babysit? I am actually enough of a sentimental girlie man to miss having a baby around. AWESOME. I have a few books on braids, bows and the intricate art of painting tiny fingernails. Prior to wooing Jill I was a single mom you know!

I gave serious thought about how to patch things up with your old boss. If the tie gig implodes I am thinking maybe Hallmark would hire me to come up with just the right sort of sentiments for delicate situations. Thought this would work for your old boss:

I missed this before, but congrats GT. It's good to know that things worked-out for the best.

Once you're feeling secure in your new surroundings, you should think about treating yourself to a new bespoke suit! Isn't Chris Despos in Chicago?

Don't know, but Oxxford sure is.

Mazal Tov! Best wishes for healthy babies and an easy delivery for your wife.

I love my kids but twins are a totally different paradigm from what I've seen. All the people I know who had twins essentially had no life for the first 12-18 months.

Do you know the genders? Girls...?

Very cute pic romafan!

I didn't want to scare gt too much. I'm sure he knows what to expect (though from what I have heard, nothing can prepare you for twins). Relatively speaking, things do tend to settle down after the first 18 months, which seem so brutal.

Thanks EL - good thing they look like their mom! Tis true, things do settle down after a year or so (must be the body & mind adjusting to long-term sleep deprivation ). But then you have the 'terrible two's!

GT - Getting them on synchronized on a schedule is key! Also, I'd highly recommend some help for the first week or two - I'm talking about a professional baby nurse (preferably one specailizing in multiples) if it's at all feasible, and especially if you've got to be trotting. It's nice that friends drop off food, and relatives come to help out, but having a pro is a blessing and will get you through the learning curve quickly while greatly reducing the level of insanity those first week(s). That mom and dad get a good night's sleep only sweetens the deal. Healthy babies are the main goal, then keeping mom's sanity!
