Information that I have learned or have been reminded of over the last week:

1) The Punjab Cafe lets you bring your stroller right up to your table when you go there to eat lunch. No kidding. This made eating lunch there very easy. Also, they have a lunch menu, and it's more affordable than their lunch buffet (which I guess they don't do during the week).

2) Medical care is prohibitively expensive. Annie was in the Special Care Nursery at MGH for 2 weeks and we just got a bill for over $70,000. I really don't know what we would've done without our insurance. Seriously, what do people do who don't have insurance or whose insurance won't cover stuff like that? Does Medicaid kick in? Because paying a bill like that is equivalent to paying for a couple years of college tuition or something. It's crazy and impossible for most people.

3) Craig's List rocks for giving away things you don't want anymore but don't want to throw out. I have already unloaded the Diaper Champ (also known as the Diaper Loser or the Diaper Chump). I posted it on Craig's List last night, and it was gone by 9:30 this morning. We now have a standard plastic garbage can with a lid and a little pedal that opens the lid. After fighting with the Diaper Chump, I can't believe how easy it is to throw out diapers. The big question will be whether the lid fits tightly enough to contain the smell.
