Sunday, August 19, 2007As you guys know, I just came home from Boston a week ago this past Thursday. At the time, I thought I had two weeks before my next trip. I was wrong.
Emmitt and I head to San Jose tomorrow on a 6am flight. (yeegads!) That gave me all of 9 days at home to try and catch up on missed work, work ahead for missed work, spend time with family, do laundry, feed the hogs, water the chickens, etc...etc...
So, it's been a short week here and I still owe you guys quite a few posts. I'll do my best to get some updates posted from San Jose.
In the meantime, here's the super-fast rundown on what's going through my mind...
1.) Had lunch with Motherwear blogger Tanya in Boston. Great time, have pics, will post!
2.) Volunteered to bump from our Boston flight for "a later flight" so a baseball team could all travel together to a game. We missed our connection and got stuck in Boston an extra night. That team better have won.
3.) I'm hearing TONS on custody cases with breastfeeding moms. Judges ordering weaning, moms refusing visitation, dads being unreasonable and all sorts of "can't we all just get along" stuff. There's a lot going through my head on this matter and as soon as I have a moment to collect my thoughts, I'll share them with you.
4.) We're coming up on eleven months of breastfeeding here in our household. Not bad considering I hadn't even planned on breastfeeding (was going to EP) until a month before he was born. I'll share my thoughts on the ups and downs of nursing an eleven month old that STILL won't take a bottle/sippy and STILL doesn't sleep through the night.
5.) I found bento supplies in Columbus, Ohio! (Boston too!) For all you bento addicts out there, I'll post some info on what I found and will also give you guys the first scoop on how to get free bento gear from me. (Oh yeah, you heard me!)
6.) Yo Gabba Gabba still freaks me out, but now it's because I think the folks drinking the Yo Gabba Gabba Kool-aid are hitting the net to defend their show. ;) (Check out the comments section folks...tell me that's all random?)
7.) I've got a new car, Greg's got a new car and we still haven't gotten rid of my old one and we have no plans of getting rid of Greg's truck. Add in my parents car, as they're visiting and my driveway looks like a parking lot.
8.) My flight tomorrow routes through Houston, Texas where we'll be joined by Robert, my publisher. This will be the first time I've ever met him (or even seen what he looks like.) I've worked for him for more than three years and count him as one of my closest friends. Here's hoping we don't drive each other crazy in person.
So sorry things have been clipped here, but as you can see, summer is rocketing toward an end.
I for one look forward to Labor Day and the relative peace that usually follows it.
