Oh wow! it's almost my one year blogging anniversary! How neat.. I kept up with something other than the baby. That makes me very proud! I have always liked to write, and I know having a blog (well ME having a blog) is pretty narcissistic, but oh well I like to blab. It's fun, it's like talking to all your friends, but not really, they just come by and comment, and then they blog about something and you go there... but it's free! well actually unless you pay for your internet, which we do, and it's then close to 50 bucks a month to visit your friends, and if I just saved that up for like 6 months I could just fly out there and see them anyway. Was that a run-on sentence?
My wish list for this year:
To see Aunt Helen (Helena - for whom we gave the middle name to the baby) and Uncle John - she is the raddest great-aunt in the whole world! I love staying up late and talking with her about when she grew up (the 30s and 40s)... She is one of the most amazing women I know. I love to hear all the stories, and look at their picture albums of the eras... it's like a world away, but at the same time you feel a part of it when she and Uncle John tell the stories. I love all of Hub's family. His great aunt and uncle are unequivocally the best! They are the most generous and loving people. They know so much about the world, and the way it works. I hope that when I am older that I will be like them.
This is our youngest cat. He always liked to go and try to drink the fish water. So naughty. The betta that we had in this picture, Gunther, died when his water was changed. We had him for over 2 years.Even though it's a fish, I still miss him. He was good and just was there, when D was working late or just to harass the cats. I know that might be weird even to pet lovers.
I don't know if it's just me, but we just got cable, and it's soooo much overload. We had just the basic channels. Like maybe 10 channels, but OMG since we got the digital stuff. It's craziness, I watched ER docs pull a pole that was impaled in 2 girls in a car crash on TLC, watching Robot Chicken, watching a show about tatoos, Trick my Truck... it's just too much! I feel so crazy trying to figure out what to watch after the lil one goes to sleep. So crazy instead of choosing I just fall asleep. Sad, isn't it?
So I hope Seattle wins the Superbowl. Gotta go for the team that has their debut at SuperBowl. Sorry Steelers.
Here is Hub's and my decision : (this was something that I just wanted to get of my chest)
I thought about it for a long time, and I will never get the time I have now with her back. I won't get her 1st times. I am of the philosophy that it's never to late to finish school. So I will be an older student, but I will never get the chance to see my baby's 1st time doing all the things babies do. Plus day care is so incredibly draining to one's budget, when one (namely me) is not working. I just think for the best interest of baby S, and the way I feel about it. I just am going to be staying at home with her. It was really a hard decision as the program for nursing is spectacular here, and I had an excellent chance of being accepted into the program. The thing that did it for me, is that I knew that I would regret not being with Shivani at this point in the long run. I don't think I will regret not working right this second. The way I pictured being a mom is the way I was raised, by an SAHM. Once this one (and any other sibilings) get into school I will go back and work.
Not trying to justify my decision to anyone, just wanted to let it be known. I think people are going to think whatever they want to, but in the end it's my decision, and what's best for my family.
I feel so bad... I know that i have been such a slacker and no one should come and comment on my blog anymore, but I have a good reason... It was the holidays, and I was so busy.... WAH...
Ok that's over, just noticed that no one has commented (and I guess I take that as a sign that no one has visited me) but that TOTALLY my fault cause I haven't updated much.
SO I apologize internet... it's that whole catholic guilt thing!
Ok... so where was I ... oh yes... tomorrow I start my drug class (it's called pharmacology).. the reading looks interesting... I have only taken OTC or prescription, and never DONE any "drugs". So I wonder if the prof will get into the effects of "drugs"... I mean I know a lot about them from TV, and other ppl talking about stuff, but I guess I was a sheltered kid that just never did them. Never wanted to, plus I would have probably been addicted. So I just steered clear.
Not to say that I was any angel, but I guess it intrigues me the people that do "drugs" and the reasons why....
Ok, well that's as meaningful as I am going to get tonite, in other news the little girl is now 5 months old... TIME IS FLYING!
