Dear Daryoosh…

Happy belated 15 months.  Could you please stop hopping curves? I miss your chubbiness, but I guess you are your brother’s brother after all.

I’m just destined to have small children.  Just please don’t fall off the charts like your brother did, K?

Outta here…

I’ll still make changes to the look at the new site, but I’m officially leaving this site to go to notodoyago!

Please follow me over there as I learn my way around the world of self hosting.

Happy Blogging everyone!

Getting ready for spring!

Maybe it’s the sun I see outside today…maybe it’s because I wasn’t as cold when I stepped outside this morning…

I’m ready for spring.  I am ready for spring.  If I say it enough times, maybe it will arrive sooner!

In preparation for spring, I am beginning my great purge of 2010.  You are going to hold me accountable this year, folks.  I am going to purge one thing every day.  I’ll give away a book I haven’t opened in decades years months,  throw away those unnecessary receipts, get rid of unused appliances…so it is written and so it shall be done!

Check back to follow me with my progress!

Is anyone else already in de-clutter mode?  Do you have a favorite website that deals with organization/de-cluttering?  Please share it in the comments section below!  I need all of the help I can get!

Moving soon! (I hope)

Thanks for hanging in here with me.  I’m trying to make the move from to

Blissdom lit the fire I needed to finally get this done.  My photo blog is also moving from to

Thanks for joining me on this ride.  As soon as I get settled, posts will be more consistent.  I have a ton to talk about, but I don’t want to double post each entry much longer!

I’ll share my Duotone photoblog theme woes with all of you as soon as there’s a happy ending.

How about you?  Do you have any “look back and can only laugh about” stories of moving your blog to a self-hosted site?

“But I’m cute…”

Yago’s teacher gave me a good laugh this morning as she told me a story about Yago on the playground yesterday. Yago had to sit out for a short while at recess because he did not listen his teacher.  She asked him twice not to go out of the playground area (there was a very inviting pile of snow) and twice he did not listen and proceeded to go anyway. She said his response to the “time out” was something to effect of, “…but I’m cute…”

Good luck with that son. Let me know how that works for you!

It makes me happy that he’s starting to defy his teachers too.  It truly means that he feels completely comfortable with them.  (That doesn’t mean that I condone the defiance, it’s just good to hear that he feels “at home”.)

I’m still chuckling about this.  A good way to start my morning!
