I've been away so long

I begin to despair of ever getting back into a regular groove with this blog. So much has been happening, but so little of it actually newsworthy.

1. I am 15 pounds lighter, and simultaneously elated at my progress and horrified at the fact that I don't look completely amazing. I thought I only needed to lose about 20 pounds, but it turns out that post baby the old bod doesn't snap back quite as gracefully. Sigh.

2. The never ending front yard project is about to end. Nuff said.

3. The Kraken is staunchly refusing to potty train, despite early evidence that she would take to it like a duck to water.

Other than that, it's business as usual. I feel like I should have a lot to report, but on the other hand, all I have done of late is eat diet cereal bars, beg a 2 1/2 year old to tell us BEFORE she poops that she's about to poop, instead of plaintively asking for her pull up to be changed after filling it up with hazardous waste, and digging holes in the dirt for various and sundry landscaping improvements. I will post a picture of my new and improved self when I get down to my (original) goal weight. And of the front yard when it no longer looks like the dumpster behind the neighborhood Home Depot.

And hopefully I will actually be able to catch up on all of your blogs and find out what's been going on in the universe while I've been awol like a Heroes fan rewatching the whole first season waiting for Origins to start (uh, not that I've been doing that or anything....).
