"...and I'm like 'F**k you' and, uh, 'F**k her, too'..."

I truly apologize for being such a lazy blogger for so many days! It figures I am spurned by my annoyance at PSEG (our provider for gas and electric) to finally come back, but ARRGGH!!! I'm so annoyed!

Our gas meter is in our basement, behind a locked basement door. If the meter reader can't get to it, we get what is called an "estimated bill" in which PSEG takes a stab at how much gas they think we used and charges us for that guestimate. Guestimates suck because when the meter finally does get read, if they have been guessing low you owe them for the difference. We have told PSEG several times to have the meter person knock on the door so we can let him in for an accurate reading. If we're not there, we live in a building with several others who could give access to the meter. 99% of the time, there's someone in this house that's home.

So, with that explanation, I'm sure you won't be shocked to learn that I opened up a FOUR HUNDRED DOLLAR PSEG …

"So raise your glass if you are wrong in all the right ways..."

Aw, look! I found my blog!

My blog was lost for a bit. Between fighting the lighter version of the plague that's consumed my nieces and nephews, a few sleepless nights due to teething, playoff hockey, and just a general feeling of having nothing to say, my poor blog has been neglected.

I'm back now, though, and while I still don't really have anything groundbreaking to say, I am glad to be blogging again!

Here's what's been going down-

My poor baby boy is teething in full-swing! After going almost a year without any teeth at all, he has the top 4 coming in plus a molar coming in all at once! He's cranky and restless and may damn well chew off his fingers in his attempts to soothe his discomfort! I feel so bad for my sweet Boy-Boy! I am hoping this phase goes by quickly! My dad is doing well recovering from his heart attack! He's a little bored because he's still on "light duty" (no working out, no long trips, etc.) but he's feeling great …

"You know you looking at a winner, winner, winner!"

Ugh. This day was a complete fail! I haven't been feeling very well and it's making keeping up with the day-to-day stuff kind of difficult! I want to make sure that PJ has all of what little energy I have right now, so it's a bit of a mess in here and I am a bit behind on things.

For example...

"Everybody's lookin' forward to the weekend, weekend..."

It's been busy times for us in our little household! Friends and family coming to visit, a celebration of a 1st birthday for a sweet baby boy, and tomorrow, some time with my mom, my bestie, and some longtime family friends!

It's good times, people. Good times.

I have been back on my kick of keeping things clean, neat and orderly around here. And I'll tell ya, it's a full time job! Still, even though I hardly ever feel like cleaning, it's a good feeling to see things all fancy-nancy! The only problem? We are friggin' slobs! I am constantly in motion picking up shoes, putting away toys, sweeping up peas/puffs/noodles/other random foodstuffs, doing dishes, doing laundry, and folding clothing! But it is making me strangely happy to do so, and by keeping up with things, my list of chores never gets overwhelming. It's all grown-up stuff in these here parts. Go figure.

Tonight we celebrated the first birthday of a sweet baby boy who is 1 year old! Pete's c…
