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...
