I love it when things work out. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. If you weren’t aware, early last week my site exploded. Devastation is a word that doesn’t even begin to encompass how I felt. My fiance looked on helplessly as I walked around for two days unbathed and inconsolable. After investing almost six months of your time and energy into something then to see it evaporate into error messages and blank screens… well it just sucks. But here I am – back and better than ever. This new layout is rockin’ and I’m getting rave reviews. There should be an award for this: “Come Back Mommy Blog of the Year” or something. Everything is again right with the world and I’m happy to be resuming business as usual with awesome daily posts for your enjoyment. Occasionally you’ll see a “Back by Popular Demand” post which will be a piece that I felt worth reviving from the rubble of the crash.:)
Christmas is this coming weekend… Holy crap is all I have to say about that. My Christmas shopping has yet to begin. I’m a fan of the last minute thrill. Pushing and shoving through crowded mall hallways on Christmas Eve excites me. I just put my tree up yesterday. The twins got a kick out of attempting to climb it both to my dismay and amusement. We’ll see how that works out.
I have one Christmas wish this year: My brother is in the Navy, and is currently stationed in Japan. It’s cool for him, but he missed the birth of his niece and nephew and [for the first time] the subsequent Christmas holiday. He’s supposed to be coming home for Christmas this year, but is having troubles with transportation. So Santa, if you’re reading this, you need to make this happen. Ari and Jaxon need to meet their Uncle Sean… Oh, and I’d appreciate some new socks too. 🙂
