Please forgive me for straying so far and for so long. Again. You know you are the one I truly care about... Facebook means nothing to me, I swear. Just a quickie here and there, purely physical. You know I always come back to you for the real intimacy.
Has it really been 5 months since I last posted? I don't even have anything to say for myself. On a day to day basis there's nothing Earth-shattering to report, nothing blog-worthy, just lots of good Facebook fodder. But then all of a sudden 5 months have passed and Lily has gone from sitting to crawling to walking and has developed a distinct personality, and I haven't documented any of it. It's that second child syndrome! And then I just get so far behind that it becomes overwhelming to get it all up to speed.
To refresh my memory I went back and read all my Facebook posts since October. Here it is, in a nutshell.
Loser Family Inc.- What You Might Have Missed (the Clif Note version):
Painted some murals; cats suck; kids are driving me crazy; Lily has sleeping issues; kids are sick; trip to San Diego; Lily has sleeping issues; Corinne says something wacky; Lily crawling; Corinne's a jellyfish; Corinne doesn't need speech anymore; sick kid(s); Lily climbing stairs; sick dog; Lily eats dog's meds; plantar fasciaitis sucks; did our wills; Lily has sleep issues; Christmas= stressmas; cats suck; dogs suck; Lily has sleep issues; basal cell nose surgery sucks; sick kid(s); sick me; sick everyone; computer sucks; Lily eats cat puke (cats suck); Shamu sucks; sick kid; cats suck; another sick kid, sick husband.
And there you have it. That brings us up to date. Yes, many of these topics certainly deserve their own posts, and I will try to at least address the most important ones in the very near future, namely: 1) Corinne's progress (subtitle: Corinne is a super star) 2) Lily is Trouble, with a capital T (subtitle: it's a good thing she's adorable) 3) So, is Lily "Typical"? It's the question on everyone's mind...
All these topics, and more. I save my best for you, dear blog. Stay tuned...
