Slowest Moving Blog Ever

If you're reading this, I'm completely amazed. Really. I mean really really.

My life has been full of change. I graduated from Berkeley. We moved from California to the desert. I have a new job where I've got an office and title and staff and day care. Yep, I'm a bad mother (tongue in cheek). But after the last 5+ years of being home, it's a change, which I needed. I'm still getting used to all of it.

Jack is great. He does fine in day care, but he does get sick easy, and often and worse, so I'm looking for something else - probably share a nanny. I'm not sure how to set that up and I barely have time so I'm not sure how I'll change it now.

My favorite things about him....
~~When I lay him down to bed and he just lays there and looks at me. No crying. Almost like he's nodding his head to say "you're right, I am tired."
~~When the phone rings and he goes running through the house looking for it saying "uh-oh, uh-oh". If it's a telemarketer, I let him answer it. Just for this reason I haven't signed up for the do not call list for our new phone. If it's not, then I answer and he cries until I'm done. Then I call our home phone with my cell so as to get him happy again. (I'm a sucker.)
~~When he tries to give me big giant open mouth kisses.

What I'd change...
~~How he cries at every diaper change. That diaper rash never goes away so it hurts. And he poops 6-8 times per day so I have to change him often and use wipes. Poor little guy.
~~And, how he sometimes wakes too early and wants to be held. So I feed him (yup, still bf-ing at 15 months) and love him, but then I put him down to do my hair and he cries at my legs. Then at work I notice the baby snot smeared on my knee.

As for Janie, she's perfect as usual. This little girl is so well behaved, easy going, polite and everything, my friends want her as a role model for their kids. She's always in a good mood. I'm not sure how I ever deserved such an angel. I like to sing her songs on the radio and change the names to her or Jack. Today it was a country song (don't you judge me) that went "To the worrrrld, you may be just another girrrrrrl. But to meeeeeee. JANIE you aaaare the worrld." I do it because it makes her smile. It makes me smile too.

As for Matt, he's working outdoors which is hardcore out here. Friday it was 120! And he's doing it for me, so I could get this new job here. What more need I say about a guy like that?

So a pretty boring update. And that's how I like it. Boring. Life isn't perfect, but it's not as exciting as it used to be. And that's good.

Don't feel bad - I disappeared for quite a while too, longer than you. It's hard to get back into the blogging swing, isn't it?

Anyway, I'm glad life is boring! Boring sounds pretty damn good, actually. Enjoy it.

Well, geez, I just deleted you (reluctantly) from my blog list this week. Now you go and do an update which I find through the comments at ALP. Figures.
So glad to hear life is rolling along in a most boring way. Congrats on your degree

Glad you're back and so glad to hear that your two are happy, that all the changes have been good ones. I had been checking and checking, but usually with a sense of hopelessness - and then here you were today! I'm sorry to hear about the bad diaper rash. That just makes me cringe, having a 13-month-old myself. ..."Boring" never sounded more rewarding! --Melissa, linkology.diaryland.com

I do check in on you occasionally. Actually I check on Jack! (I was born with similar problems) and am always curious with a fellow ostomate's progress. Sounds like he's doing great, considering his rough start. I cannot believe he is walking!

persistance pays off, I knew you would be back!! Glad to hear all is well, and hoping that no mention of medical concerns for your littly boy means there aren't any! And that will make me smile for the next 6 months, until you post again! :)

HI! I miss you and thought I'd check in on you. I'm glad I did and found an update. :) Hopefully you've found a child care situation you like better and things are going well! Congrats on graduating and your new job, that's wonderful.

We seen a few of you were wanting to buy steroids like tren so I thought we’d share this with everyone. There are steroids like deca that are for sale on the internet. Legal Anabolic Steroids like dianabol, have all the beneficial anabolic results but without the horrible side effects. Many companies have developed complete product lines like tren, dianabol, and winni. The internets most reputable companies dealing with legal anabolic steroids can be found with some basic search engine searching. purchase only if they offer a 100% money back guarantee.

Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?

I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. However think about if you added some great images or videos to give your posts more, "pop"!
Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this site could undeniably be
one of the very best in its niche. Very good blog!
