Come out and play

I’ve been a bit wrapped up in this whole “having a new baby and caring for a 2 1/2 year old thing” lately, and as a result, totally missed “National Delurking Week” Jan. 8-12 (started by Paper Napkin).

So I’ve decided that I’m going to have my very own Unofficial Delurking Week this week – Jan. 22-26. (And I say feel free to designate your own delurking week too if you missed the official one.)

I know there are a lot of you who visit on a regular basis, but for one reason or another have not yet commented. This is your chance to say hello. :) Come out, come out, wherever you are.

P.S. I can’t take credit for the buttons. I found them on the ‘net.

Just not feeling it

I’m just not feeling the desire to blog the past few days. Not sure why exactly (could be things going on in my personal life, could be I’m feeling more introverted these days, could be cuz I’ve been busy nesting, or it could be a combo of things), but I’m sure it will pass.
Anyway, I just wanted to pop on briefly to say “I ain’t writin’ today.” :oP

We’re home!

Just a quick post to say we are home safe and sound. We had a very nice time in MI and I will be posting more about our trip and some pics later. :)
Have lots of unpacking, laundry, cleaning and grocery shopping (cuz our fridge is EMP-TY!) to do today. TTFN.

Triple digits weekend

Holy heatwave, Batman! Today and tomorrow’s forecasted highs are 102, dropping to 100 on Monday. And yesterday it was 99. Oy!!

We plan to go to a public pool for some of the afternoon today to cool off. I just hope the whole city doesn’t decide to do the same.

This evening we are going to our local API chapter summer potluck picnic which should be a lot of fun if we can find ways to stay cool. That will be the tricky part. I’m taking a bean dip to share. I found the recipe this week in one of my veggie cookbooks. It’s pretty tasty and easy to make.

Not sure what we will do tomorrow, but quite possibly leave the house to find respite in some air conditioned facility.

On Monday, Ava and I have plans to meet some friends at a kiddie play gym (similar to Gymboree) for part of the day. I haven’t taken Ava to anything like that before, but I’m sure she will enjoy it (and it will be air conditioned!).

Then the rest of the week consists of a midwife appointment, a doctor’s appointment and a moms’ night out.

Hope everyone finds ways to stay cool this weekend. :)
