I'm too tired for a "real" post today (see below for the reason), so here's a bit of randomness for ya.
It's killing me that I don't have a picture to include with this announcement (c'mon, Mom!! Upload those pictures already!)....but I'm psyched to share that my little sister had a baby girl yesterday. Autumn Marie. Yay!! I'm an auntie! I can't wait to meet the little bundle tonight.
And in kitty news, we're still trying to find out if he belongs to anyone, and we're in contact with the shelter. In the meantime, we've been juggling kids, dogs and cat--trying to keep everyone happy, safe and not scared. Oy. Tips, anyone, on the dog-cat living together thing? Calvin's been calling him Mig (from the book Christmas Trolls), which I know means we've pretty much committed to keeping him. Hmn.
And to avoid the post-without-a-picture thing, here's a funny picture of Steve and I in the Old Port last night (where did that second chin of mine come from? Is it there all the time? Hmmn...and it scares me that I think we're starting to look like each other). We went OUT...leaving Adelaide for the first time (who did just fine, thank you!) so we could eat, drink and hear some kick a** live music by Bright Eyes and Feist. It took me three children to finally figure out that a Mama that gets some time to herself is a much happier, more centered Mama. And so, while I'm very very tired today (I haven't been out past midnight in, um, years), I feel great.
