Oh...stuff

So, a brand new reader sent me a lengthy email the other day and noted that I don't really talk about myself that much, at least in terms of the challenges or frustrations of managing work, children, etc. And looking back, I guess that is true...I really don't. Obviously, you all know that I suspended school for a semester, but I don't really write on a day to day basis about how hard it can sometimes be.

The big reason, I think, is that I tend to not write at all when I am that busy. Some people use their blog as an outlet, but I tend to cut mine out when I don't have time. But make no mistake, I have had plenty of days where I couldn't concentrate because I was so tired, or forgot to wear socks (happened:-)) or whatever. And I have often thought about how nice it would be to curl up under my desk and take a nap...but I don't really commit those things to virtual paper very often. Which I guess means that I am leaving a lot out, because the day-to-day of the babies is pretty all encompassing.

And no, I didn't want anyone to think that I just breeze through these things with little or no effort...it is HARD. You know, like when LK wakes up at 3:30 in the morning and just wants to hang out. Not grumpy, not hungry...just not very tired. Which thankfully hasn't happened since...oh...last night:-P. Or when they get sick like last week and it is impossible to keep them in clean clothes, or to keep the sheets in their cribs free of throw-up. Even if I don't write about it...it is all there!!!

Anyway, on a more enjoyable and fun note...special contest of the day with no prizes:-) Anyone want to guess how many proms Munchkin has been invited to? This includes senior and junior proms, as well as freshman and sophomore year-end banquets or whatever...

I can't participate in trivia since I already knew the answer. Sob.

It was great talking to you on Tuesday. We have to catch up again soon and - shock! - (and so appropriate to this post) I want to hear more about what's going on with you!

I am guessing 6, a totally random number! Does she need a new dress for each?
