Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus...

So I got a random comment from some guy, I think his name was Mike: "So is this thing, like, over or what?"

No, Mike, this thing is not, like, over. I tried to take my blogging business elsewhere for a while but I never really felt comfortable over there. Someone told me it felt like I was writing for an audience instead of for myself and when I re-read what I'd written with that critique in mind, she was right. My whole "voice" had changed. I sounded stuffy and uppity and (as my dad would say) high-fallutin' and totally not like me at all.

So here I am. I'm back. I can't believe it's been six whole months since I've written here. I'm trying to think of what's been going on for the last six months. The highlights, or at least the December and January highlights, can be found at the other location. The Bee and I had some big news - baby #2, Z, is due August 11. We spent New Year's and a lot of the month of January in North Carolina; we talked (okay, I talked) about moving out there but the idea was met with such resistance that I gave that up pretty quick. (Okay, not really. I pouted for a good month or so before I decided to let it go. I can always try again later...)

February went by quickly, as always. I got surprised with flowers and a card from the Bee on my birthday - I hadn't even expected him home from the job he'd been doing. Brodie even got me a card - he's so thoughtful. :-) And even March has flown by. We did our taxes, paid off a TON of bills, bought a Wii and Nick got called back to work (at his real job, even!); it's been a good month.

And that's pretty much my six months in a nutshell. Boring, isn't it? Aren't you glad I didn't blog? Me too.

It seems like most everyone I know that has had a blog has stopped. Is life so blah right now that no one has anything to talk about? I have stuff to talk about - I just can't seem to find the time to do so. I'm working on that; it's on my list of things to do.

But not right now - apparently we're going to see the Harlem Globetrotters tonight. Interesting. I'll let you know how that turns out.
