Back in Biznitch!

April 15, 2008

Wow, this is strange. It's been just over four months since I've lounged on my blogging couch, ignored my begging child, logged onto Blogger, and written an hour's worth of senseless dribble. And to be terribly honest, I've missed that ritual deeply. For the past four months you see, I've been writing my posts in Microsoft Word, saving them to disc, bringing them to work, and emailing them to my sister to post. Trust me troops, that's a whole lot of steps for a lazy sack o'crap like Amy B. Lawson. In all seriousness, I almost abandoned blogging and took up smoking for the sake of simplicity--buy, smoke, die. That's one less step.

But today my friends, after a cross-country move that was more like a migration, I'm happy to announce that I'm finally back in business! I am totally, completely recommitted to my former lifestyle as a sweatpant-wearing, internet addicted, excusing-making housewife. Well, to be quite honest, I'll be working sixteen hours a week, but I'm very hopeful that it won't get in the way of my lifestyle too badly. I'm crossing my fingers that a career won't prompt me to suddenly want to clean the kitchen sink, because if it did, I may as well flush my identity right down the pooper, ya know?

I'm thrilled to let you all know that we're officially settled into our house, we officially have our very own internet connection, and I'm officially ignoring James's plea for fruit and water this very minute! On the down side, I've also officially lost some standing in the blogging world. Before my several-month hiatus, I was getting well over one-thousand unique views a day. Now I'm getting somewhere in the range of four. My BlogHer check has gone from covering my car payment to covering our monthly diaper supply (that's right...still not potty trained!), but starting now, I'm officially working my way back up.

I'll wrap up this post by extending a huge thank-you to all of my readers who have stuck through the past few months of light posting and little-to-no commenting. Also, thanks to my sister for taking a minute to post my garbage, and then taking forty minutes to correct formatting and typos according to my bossy requests.

Stay tuned, because tomorrow I'm posting pictures of James's third birthday. Let's just say that the highlight of the event was a package of Hostess Cupcakes purchased from our local Blue Canoe convenience store.

See?! I still have the same old questionable parenting skills...

Awesome.. With your lack of blogging I was worried that James would stop calling his stuff toys names like Email!

And on the page views - look at the bright side. You now know all your loyal peeps.

Welcome back!

Melissa said...

Now you know how loyal we are. Call me crazy.

Are you going to post us pics of the new place all settled in (a mess ;p)

Brianna said...

I'm new to your blog (well, just a month or so new) and I had NO idea that you were slacking big time. I'm looking forward to seeing the "real" you now that I know I've been experiencing the cliff's notes version of The Lawsons do Dallas. :)

Welcome back!

Rob & Katy said...

I JUST told my hubby on Sunday I was quitting everything to start smoking! SHUT UP that you said that also! LOL

Welcome back!

Welcome back to blogging! I look forward to reading and laughing at the blog while at work, it makes me feel like I'm not the only one with a warped sense of the world, welcome again!!!

Michemily said...

You've done a pretty good job of keeping me amused, so don't worry about it. :)

Kevin said...

Glad that you are back. I enjoy reading your blog, very funny and entertaining plus it lets me know what I am in for with my one year old son.

Request: can you open up the feed setting to "full" so I don't have to click multiple times to read your blog from Google reader? I am inherently lazy.

Yay! Welcome back! I was hoping that the past few months were not the wave of the future, and I can't say how pleased I am to see that you will be back in form. Yay!
