When so much time goes by between posts (really, I don't know what happened to all that time), it's easier to pick a few things to highlight, rather than start a long post about one topic. I know this because I've started several posts that ended up rambling about one thing for way too long. So here are the digestible bites of what we've been up to:

Distractions abound! After the holidays go by, it is really hard to settle down and focus, even with all the resolutions and goal setting. Among the things on my mind:

I have been finding it hard to write here, but I have been writing in my online journal. Blog ideas that turn into long rants end up not getting posted. Or they just end up not making sense. Or I worry about sharing too much that people just don't care about.

But then I remember something I wrote in my first-ever post: Joining the blog world seems like a good solution, because when people get bored, escape is only a click away. And I can go on and on as much as I want about how terrific my kid is." I was going to link directly to the post itself, but Jason put a horrible photo of me there (which will be removed shortly).

So here we go again. Since I haven't made a proper post for months now, I'll just fill you in on the topics I could have posted on (in no particular order):
