It's supposed to be like this tonight. And for many days to come in the future. Thus, I can make no promises for when I might make it to a computer again. Hence, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and Happy Holidays in case you're celebrating anything else. Of course, we didn't get around to sending out Christmas cards this year...yet. We might send something out in, say, February. But I really wanted to take a family picture this Christmas and then print it out and send it to everyone, but you know, we still haven't even taken that family picture yet, much less been able to get it printed out. So yeah. We love you all. We're grateful for all the wonderful friends and family we have. We're sorry we stink at this. But we're thinking of you!

That's all for now.

Time flies, as usual

So the other day I realized that this new baby will be here in LESS THAN FOUR MONTHS. Oh my holy. How did that happen?

I am so excited and happy, but the practical side of me, or maybe that's just the crazy-hormonal side of me, is a little freaked out at the thought of all the junk in my house I need to get rid of and all the other miscellany that needs doing before then. Oy vey.

Also, Christmas, it's here, and how the heck did THAT happen? I don't know. It just seems impossible to be prepared for these things lately.

Additionally, we finally got around to pruning our blackberries today, which is awful because it should've been done in, say, August, but ya know. That whole morning sickness thing. Anyway, it was actually fun to do but WOW, how did people do it when they had thorn-ful blackberry bushes? Ouch.

Okay. Ramble over. Here's the only good picture we took of our family this year, in the last year it will be just the three of us. And yes, that makes me sad just a little bit, because I love this family so much as it is. But I can't wait to see how awesome our family gets with the new little guy in April too. Just...sigh. SO MUCH TO DO!!!
