The Spin Cycle

I know, I know...I haven't been around in a while.

It isn't that I don't think about you.

AK's nose still isn't healed. It was almost healed and than she had at it and had a new bloody scab this morning. It has become her habit to scratch at it when she falls asleep. It continues to frustrate me to no end. The liquid bandage is our first line of defense, but she scratches it off and keeps going.

LP has started swimming lessons. She loves it. She was already good at putting her head in the water and blowing bubbles and hopefully soon she will jump in without holding on to the instructor's hands. Poor AK has to sit on the bleachers and watch when all she really wants to do is jump in. Fortunately friend Di has an iPhone that she lets AK play with and 2. AK likes to shower in the locker room with LP after swimming, so at least she has something to look forward to.

My job continues to be really busy, although, I am starting to feel like I am getting into a groove. I am launching a program next week that I am super-psyched about and feel like I am gaining some traction within the organization. I am still not used to being in a leadership role and need to figure out how to better balance invitations to make office and client visits and attend events with my desire to go home and hang with my babies. Oh, and the Hoos' job has been crazy too.

I am starting to really enjoy my blackberry. I have always been addicted to email and this plays into my habit. I do still know when to put it down and have to hide my typing on it more from the Hoos than from the girls.

And, finally, I had a really nice 34th birthday. Can't quite believe I am 34. It sounds like a real age - a grown up age - and that throws me.

Otherwise, life is good, busy and flying by. Hopefully I will have more time to blog, but I hate to tell you not to count on it...
