I have been remiss in blogging. I blame this on several things.
1.) The bad economy has me down
2.) I am working so hard on other things, I have zero to nothing to give here. I want to at least have a semblance of decent writing and I need to focus on those projects that pay me. Sad, but true.
3.) I get no comments here! C'mon people, give me some love.
4.) Facebook. I can't.Get.Enough. I am like an addict. I need to quit, just go cold turkey. The site is evil and is sucking my life force and creativity.
Also, my house smells like dirty diapers. That may not be relevant, but it is a fact.
We have had a lot of news around here, some of which I cannot yet share in a public forum, but potentially we have some very lucrative developments in the works. Now they just need to come through.
The big news I CAN share is as follows:
1.) Ani has started solid foods. It was a challenge for me to let go enough to allow something other than breastmilk into his diet. But given he is now way older than any other kids I know when he is starting solids, I gave in. And since then he has slept much better. Two nights of one wakeup each and last night all the way through the night! He even let R put him down while I was at yoga.
2.) Sam got into pre-school. We got off the waiting list and into one of the co-op pre-schools we wanted. I will likely reevaluate when she is 3.9, but for now, this is a great alternative. It is three mornings a week (I work one of them) and is in a church basement in Cambridge. Great facilities, great people. I am thrilled. Plus, I am sure I will have many posts on this so stay tuned.
3.) I bought my "I lost the baby weight" Lulu Lemon clothing. $100 per pair of yoga pants is totally unreasonable, I said on Sunday, but by last night after my five-mile run/90 minute hot yoga practice, I was singing the praises of $100 yoga pants. Wow. That is some fan-friggin-tastic moisture wicking.
And if you want to criticize me for spending so much in a recession, feel free. I always say that the runners with the most expensive, most useless gear (mileage tracker on shoelace thing) are the ones who run the slowest. So maybe my $100 yoga pants mean I suck at yoga, but since I have been practicing my whole life, I doubt it. Or, as they say in my practice: my downward dog can kick your downward dog's ass.
4.) More news in the works. Stay tuned.
I shall become a better blogger. Or not. We'll see.
