I'm on vacation until Tuesday.

I will have some pictures from the concert I attended on Monday, 18th.


They were awesome!

And I got some GREAT shots!

I had a great birthday, too.

Social Butterfly

I have several social networking sites where I post blogs full of pictures of my clients, my family and friends.

I've had one site for over three years and there are over 155 posts. Obviously I don't blog daily, but if you do the math...

52 weeks per year times three years...

that's about one post every week. And there were times when I posted something daily, and other times I would go weeks without posting.

I am starting to find out that location is no longer working for me.

But what do I do with all of the posts? All of the pictures? Experiences? Feelings? I don't want to just abandon them. And the thought of moving each post to a blog designated for that part of my life would take more time than I have to dedicate, at the moment.

Also... what about the comments? All the love, support, suggestions and ideas? What do I do with those??

I've been thinking about this for a while.

I really like blogger. It's very WYSIWYG. I experienced other blog hosts as a reader and now as a user. (My friend showed me her blog while she was editing it.) It seemed very intricate and involved with all the downloading of software. ugh. No. Thank you.

Although, I am creative and I have a degree in graphic design... Web design is not one of my strong skills, in addition to that, I have very little time to actually blog, and much less time to actually get creative with the blog layout and design.

I'll probably stick with blogger. I like the functionality of it. I can make it private or public, allow comments or not. I can save drafts until I am ready to hit "submit". I can attach labels to make things easier to find.



I guess... :\

I just need to bite the bullet,

get a sitter,

a Diet Coke,

bag o'chips and get to copying and pasting.

damn it.

I've lost 9 pounds (give or take a few ounces) since April 22, 2009.

My Ethiopian Baby belly is going away.


sicky baby

my child has been sick.


this time with vomiting and diarrhea.


The pedicatrician says it's a virus and to (basically) starve it out.

I can not and will not with hold food from my 20 month old.

At 23.5 pounds... starvation ain't gonna happen. Sorry.

I have, however, reduced the amount of greasy, sugary, and spicey foods from the menu.

Cleaning up diarrhea and vomit before 7 AM is not a mother's dream job.

But I do it because I love my child.
