Still stumbling around...

Mostly I'm in a daze lately. I don't do well under the weight of maintaining everyday life. If you look back on my blog I've lived most of the last ten years out of a suitcase, so having a whole house, a dependent baby, cars and bills and all the entrapments of "normal" life often leaves me feeling paralyzed. My most productive times have always been the times when I was least stable, owned little, and only needed to concentrate on a few things. Here I am staggering. It makes me want to take off for another adventure, bringing both my boys with me, and sell off everything I've collected.

Time to get back on the saddle.

So I've basically taken two months or so of maternity leave on this blog, and it's time I started up again. It's just that, before, I could write about my travels and adventures, and now there's just, well, not so much to write about. For instance, my to do list for today:

1. Call Roy the appliance guy cos my washer mysteriously stopped draining water.

2. Do some laundry should said washer be repaired.

3. Mop. The. Damn. Floors. Already.

4. Google why my two-month-old is drooling like a faucet.

5. Doctor's appointment for aforementioned drooly boy. First shots! Eeek!

6. Pick up entire contents of closet from bedroom floor.

7. Breastfeed. Like, a lot. Luckily, have rented multiple movies to make it go faster.

Well folks, that's it. Compelling? Certainly. I wouldn't be surprised if this post alone picks up a couple hundred hungry readers.

Happy Fourth of July!

The fourth of July is not only about this:


In my family, it is also about my Dad, who turns 63 today...


And it's also about my brother-in-law, who turns a whopping 30 today...


Happy Birthday to you both!!
