OK, Blogketeers, I know I've been kind of an absentee diarist lately, but I have nothing to say on my own defense, save that I just wasn't feeling like it.
Let me 'splain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up.
My Dad's been in the hospital a few times over the last six weeks. Apparently, he had a heart attack sometime last year and didn't know it... Only my dad... So, he had angioplasty (had an angioplasty? I'm not a cardiologist, I don't know) to put stents into six arteries, and there was a balloon pump helping his heart recover, and while they tell me he was fine, and that after he recovers from the procedure he'll feel better than he has in a long while, it was, and is, still scary.
My brother cut his hand badly enough to have to be airlifted to Baltimore for emergency surgery to insure that he didn't lose a few fingers. My Mom's been down to Maryland several times to help out with Rylee while Jamie and Dy are working and in school.
I've been knitting like a fiend, and spending way too much time online researching baby stuff. In fact, I discovered the Britax Vigour
and Companion combination online, and afer much online research, decided it might just be the stroller and infant seat for me. Well, then I realized that no one keeps a floor model of half the strollers on the market, including this one.
Well, I finally found a floor model - in Berlin, Connecticut
(yes, it's outside of Hartford...), so, on Saturday, I shanghaied my Mom, and we went to check it out. So begins the baby-stuff lust.
My photo blog
has suffered a similar fate of late, since carrying camera just ceased to be something on my radar for a while there. I do have some backlog to upload. And one of these days I might actually do it.
The kids are doing great. O is being evaluated by a team of speech therpists, so hopefully a solution (or at least a game plan) is on the horizon. J&E are now on their way to the third and first grades, which reminds me that I'm coming up on 8 years of nannying (yes, with interruptions, but still, eight years!).
So, there's what I can think of from the last two weeksish... I hope I haven't alienated my four readers for good... Though that probably wouldn't stop me from posting. Even if a few weeks go by between posts.
