Oops, I did it again.

So it’s official. My family is growing by 1 in January.

Just when I’d finally decided never to have more kids…

Le sigh.

At least it’s not twins.

Now, does anyone have any ideas on how to explain this idea to a 3 1/2 year old?

Johari? What Johari you talking about?

So…I finally caved: For everyone who ever posted one of these and I didn’t do it, go ahead and send me the link. Bugger.

I’ve had the flu for the past week and a half. Or I’m calling it the flu. In actuality: a sinus infection, ear infection, and spring cold combined with my allergies to give me the week and a half from hell I’ve been going through. It’s easier to say the flu. I finally kicked the infections and my allergies have died down. Now I just have to kick this cold. Ack, I just realized I forgot my meds last night (I may not be done after all)

So both Mrs. Ziggie and I agree that we don’t want to see her pregnant again. Not that it was a horrible experience, but we finally got her body sorted out so we’re not at the ER every other week and we’re not sure what a pregnancy would do to the delicate balance that is her. So…we’re looking into the foster program, with the goal of eventually adopting. Umm…hun, if this was supposed to be a secret, oops! Pssst…just in case all 5 readers of this: don’t tell!

I woke up this morning, looked in the mirror and almost had a heart attack. No reason, just my face at 6 in the morning probably shouldn’t be the first thing I see.

I’ve lost 15 lbs since I started my “I’m not trying to lose it, but I’ll pay attention to my weight now” diet. Getting sick twice in the past month has helped this process. Oh, and I finally kicked the Mtn. Dew habit. By not dreaking that I’ve found that I’ve been sick ever since. Maybe it was a bad time to quit. But overall I feel like I have more energy. At least I was sick through the withdrawal symptoms (or because of? hard to tell).

Tax time is over, which means my sister can have a life again. I’m trying to convince her to come out and see her adorable nephew.

I’m very burned out on most of the TV shows I (sadly) currently watch. All of them (with a couple exceptions) are stuck in the routine they seem to have that gets them from point A to point B then circles back to point A and after an entire season you’re right back where you started again and what was the point? Simpsons and 24 seem to be the only exceptions. Oh, and that new show Unan1mous (I love the 1 in the title making it sound like U-nan-one-mous) is pretty interesting, but it’s still the first season so no one actually knows the rules yet. It definitely has the potential to get old quickly. Maybe this is a sign I should watch less television?

Easter was a bust for us. All three of us lay around the house sick wishing we were better so we could go be with family. My MIL just had a baby and we couldn’t go see the family, and my grandma had a party at her house that we had to skip. There was lots to do and not one of us was healthy enough to go do it. I’m tired of being a hermit.

I miss college. Well, ok, not the classes. Come to think of it though, I didn’t spend much time in those to start with. But I miss the comradarie I had with my friends at the time. It was before (if you go about mid-way through anyway) I had committed a few of my last major screw ups (not bad, since leaving college I’ve only had three major screw ups in 4 years….). And life made sense then. No, we didn’t have it all figured out, but we understood our little world. Now I’m not sure what we understand anymore..or who is even trying to understand it with me.

I’ve been doing some soul searching lately. I know it’s around here somewhere, I just have to look a little harder and it’s bound to turn up (ha ha ha ha ha). I’ve wondererd, am I really happy? I mean, I love my family, I love my job, I love….most things, but how restless am I lately? Part of me wants to pick up and go. I’m tired of paying bills and putting my family first. I just want to relax, to not worry about things, to let things go and know when I come back to life again everything will be where I left it. Like college. ~sigh~

In other news, my socks don’t match. Ah well.
