Well, things have calmed down somewhat on the home front. Thing Four is sleeping about seven hours a night, and so my "Zombie Days" are generally over. Which means I'm more awake now. Which means I have more energy. Which means I have more time to do things

And I'm sure all of you are thrilled to bits. I mean, who wouldn't want to hear about the eating habits of a two-month old? Or how my plantar fasciitis is acting up? Or how I actually went three weeks without cleaning the basement toilet once? (I swear, in my defense, it was a complete fluke, and perfectly explainable...yet I wouldn't subject you all to a description of that event, I do have SOME tact.)

I do have a few things rolling around in my head at the moment...I am very excited about the release of DEATHLY HALLOWS in a couple of days, and I am steaming mad that people out there got their books early and are determined to spoil it for other readers (hence I won't be spending much time online until Saturday)--and I am really sad that Mandy Patinkin left Criminal Minds, and DON'T EVEN GET ME STARTED on "Posh" Beckham coming to America...because I'm determined to say nice things in my blog...generally...and I could go on for a while but I won't.

Instead, here's a picture of Thing Four: (Taken a few weeks ago when he first started smiling) And yes, I absolutely loathe that tacky doorknob-thingy sticking out of his mouth-- but he absolutely lurves it, and I don't have the heart to take it away from him. And it is kinda cute--you can see into his mouth if you look in that little hole in the middle. Oh well.

So, yes, it may be anticlimactic, but I am back. I missed the blog. And unless we have a Thing Five (Oh who said that!) I shouldn't be shutting down any time soon...

He is adorable! I always hated the binky's hanging out of the baby's mouth. But they are much quieter. Welcome back!
