Long time, no blog

Good Lord it has been forever since I posted anything. I need to work on that commitment/follow through issue - but I knew that!

Molly and Meghan are so big now - can't believe I have 2 kids, much less such adorable, bad, creative, intimidating, sassy, beautiful, life affirming, all-is-right-with-the-universe kind of children...

I am a little worried about Meghan's speech development, she seems to be behind where Molly was at the same age. It is probably my imagination...

So, this weekend Carolyn and I are using her free night at the Westin (fancy schmancy) for a Girls' Weekend. Yay! Drinking! Dancing! Food! Freedom! For about 14 hours...then back to the real world. I'll seriously owe Bob after this!

Jeff moved into his condo (yay!) and Patrick is set to close July 15. PLEASE say a prayer to the real estate gods on this one - he HAS to close so he can find a new job and get outta the hellhole he's in. Actually, the former employer of everyone mentioned thus far, except the children. Also, Holly...Peyton...Kim...Lisa...Brian W...Brian H...and it seems a thousand others who have, one way or another, been screwed.

Sad commentary for a non-profit, huh?

Anyway, I am going to TRY to do better, if for no other reason than to polish the ol' writing skills and keep them working on something other than grants and policies and procedures! Aaaah, the joys of administration!!

:)

Last season of Queer as Folk - makes me a little sad. I am WAY too invested in these characters. I guess that speaks well for the writing on that show, but poorly for my loser life!!

Check out www.rosie.com - you'll get used to the style, I swear you will...

www.brentriley.com - interesting always, great perspective, if you want a reason to have safer sex and teach your kids about it, his writing on HIV is so poignant and raw that you can't help but be moved.

www.agirlaboyavirus.com - more on HIV from a different perspective - awesome nonetheless!

Be well, be safe, and keep reading
