"It's such a funny thing how nothing's funny when it's you..."

How can it only be Tuesday? The last bits of Tuesday, granted, but still. How can it only be Tuesday?

Today was another freakishly warm January day (weirdest. winter. ever.) and unless you count PJ's alternately cranky/rammy outing at story hour today in which he shotgunned between crying and sprinting about the room stealing other kids snacks, it was pretty normal. Therapy this morning followed by a playdate with friends, the previously-mentioned story hour, dinner, bath and bedtime. My brain was a little more scrambled than usual due to the fact that I haven't been sleeping well.

I think it was that lingering fatigue that made PJ's Story Hour Meltdown seem more discouraging than normal. I don't think his behavior was much more then could be expected from a two-year old who didn't take a nap today (WTF, toddler?) and yet knowing that didn't stop me from letting a bad 40 minutes with my son completely get into my head. With all of the questions surrounding PJ r…

"You know it's true that you are blessed and lucky..."

Oh, the days!

They have been so full! Pete had a nice stretch of time off and it was wonderful! We were able to eat dinner together as a family, spend time with our Boy, and get lots done around our place (although not nearly enough of the latter, of course). He goes back to work tomorrow and I have to admit it's going to be a bummer to send him off.

Our time has been so busy and there are so many things I have to talk about. The first thing is that I need to finish the post about PJ's 2nd birthday and what a wonderful day it was! And since then, PJ's speech delay has become less of a worry although he's still way behind for his age. PJ has a lot of work to do, but he's learning new words and skills every single day and we are so, so proud of our sweet baby boy!

My dad had been out of work since shortly after PJ was born, but last week was offered a job! That was exciting enough, but even more exciting is that he won't have to live away from home during the wee…

"It's like a work of art that never gets to see the light..."

Oh my! It's 2012!

I was pretty much Miss Delinquent Blogger, 2011- my crown is made of rhinestones and shame. And here we are, already halfway through January and this is the first time I have sat down to write.

Still, I am hoping to correct that this year. Even though very few people actually read my blog (and thanks and pity to those who do, LOL!) it's always been a very cathartic experience for me to write. I enjoy it and it makes me feel good, so it's something I should be doing as part of my Mental Health Maintenance routine! And trust me. I need a LOT of maintenance! I need a Brain Dyson.

Between wrangling a two-year old (birthday post to come, I swear!), managing his therapy schedule (yeah, I'll blog about that, too!), keeping house (...from completely piling up with shit as opposed to just it's usual state of disarray), and expending energy to keep from eating all of the things (I'm a heifer), I find that the time just slips away. Before I know it,…
