1. I spend too much time on the internets. Between my job, my penchant for stumbling across new and life-changing blogs, and my naptime addiction to HGTV.com, I have a problem. And I’m ready to admit it. That and my almost 2-year old sometimes bursts into tears when I open the laptop. Priorities, I haz them.
2. So I decided to write about it…on the internet. Yeah.
3. Parenting. Small children. Any advice/suggestions/reading recos? I am slowly transitioning from survival mode to ‘maybe I should do something proactive about my child’s behavior and character formation.’ So far, all I’ve got is ‘spend less time on the internets’ while he is awake. (Obviously he is awake now. 10 points for me.)
4. We live 5 minutes from a Starbucks now. Damn you, green mermaid. I just can’t resist your siren call, gay agenda and chemical coffee notwithstanding…
5. Joey is obsessed with fans. Oscillating or otherwise. Expect an ER-related post soon.
6. I have inherited a producing garden and smallish orchard/vineyard. There is literally produce pelting our roof and filling our walkways in its overabundance, and i have no idea what to do with it or how to care for the fecund fields of bounty in our backyard. Any tips from mamas with greener thumbs? So far I’ve managed to identify: peaches, apricots, strawberries, rhubarb, mint, plums, zucchini, 3 different grape varietals, and possibly some beleaguered tomatoes.
7. John Paul is pulling out not small chunks of my luscious post-partum locks and sucking energetically on my collar bone, so I bid you adieu. Please remember little Quinn and her family in your prayers today. And, as always, off to Jen’s you go.
