I noticed that I have really enjoyed responding to comments. I am going to try and keep it up - for the "most-current" posts at least. I have also enjoyed discovering some new blogs! Speaking of comments - now that I have opened them up to everyone, I am getting spam. I may have to start closing comments on old posts - just an FYI if you noticed some odd things coming through on your feed readers.
Not much lately - I am in a writing slump which sucks because I have some writing to do for X. How do folks write for a living? I simply cannot make the words magically appear - I need to be in a special mood for the words to spring forth from these fingers. Bah.
The kids are doing really well. Anjali is so very roly-poly these days......tummy, back, tummy, back........she is not quite log-rolling across the living room floor, but she is damned close. Officially, she is mobile because you cannot be guaranteed she will stay where you put her which means I need to start thinking about re-babyproofing the damned house all over again. One advantage of having 2 Under 2 is that Kid #1's toys are not Too Teeny Tiny yet - at least that is one battle already won. It is pretty funny to watch Anjali and Arun together these days. He declares that it is "Anju's turn!" for rolling, then he declares that it is "Arun's turn!" for rolling. When he log-rolls across the floor, her eyes light up as if to say "Whoa. DUDE." She is absolutely fascinated with him. I think what is most surprising is that when I envisioned them playing together, I thought it would be down the road, when they are older. I had no clue it would happen this early! The rolling around....the games of Peek-a-boo..... the making each other laugh by being silly..... It is truly a joy to watch them together. They are the sparkle in these dreary, bitterly cold days as of late.
Because Segues Are So 2007........Why are folks so against the warehouse clubs? We have a Costco executive membership and it literally pays for itself with the 2% rebate we get at the end of the year. In short, it is FREE for us to have this membership and we have saved so! much! money! on our necessities over the past year - things like fresh produce, chicken/fish, cheese, detergent, paper products, milk, coffee beans, diapers - all things that we have to buy anyway. Furthermore, gas is always cheaper there - I remember a few weeks back it was 7 cents cheaper - add in the rebate and that was a 13 cent/gallon savings. Crazy!
