T- 6 weeks, 4 days!
So it's been now about 1.5 weeks since I've been back in Seattle, after being away for about 5+ months living in San Francisco working out the the 500 Startups accelerator for GiftStarter. As a company, we're just not the hardcore city people - so San Francisco was great in so many ways, but just not who we are. We embraced the concrete and tall buildings for several months. We loved the weekly field trips to Palo Alto or Mountain View, just for a chance to breathe non-city air and see some green. Nonstop hustle pushed us along in the startup grind, some from the manic energy of the city, the push of energy of the startup community, and having to juggle working on a startup company and balance it with the accelerator commitments. From the time we wake up to the time we sleep, it was nonstop GiftStarter. To/from the office in SoMa. The Uber drivers that refused to take me on my trip made me so mad. SanFran has a major homeless challenge on its hands. The traffic is crazy, especially when there's a conference in town (which happens often). ... Then, there was Jin Mi, a gem of a Korean restaurant we went to at least 1-2 times a week (it's that good.)
Lentil continues to grow.
And Baby Lentil is doing great. Head is down already. He's got a steady heartbeat. He likes to kick over on my right side underneath my ribs - so sitting gets to be awkward. Our favorite positions are for me to be leaning back surrounded by pillows with laptop on my lap, or on my side. No other worries - we eat everything and are eating really well.
