Life After the Second Line

Hello? Anybody out there?

Yeah, I know, it's been more than a month. Again. I've said it many times before -- this is why I had to get a free blog! Nobody would pay for this kind of shitty posting record.

Let's see. When you are a slacker who allows this much time to pass between posts, it's hard to know where to start. I guess with P and E. They are the main things I have going on anyway!

My babies. They are huge. They are walking and feeding themselves, pointing at things and saying, "Whassis?" They are playing together and fighting with each other and doing a lot of both of those things with our dogs as well. I have seriously loved every day with them, and I do miss the days of the tiny baby clothes and hours of snuggling in my arms. But now they are so. much. fun. Watching them explore the world, learning how things work, laughing at what I can only assume are some sort of toddler inside jokes -- it's a blast.

They'll have some company this fall, when I return to babysitting for the couple I worked for while I was pregnant. They have two girls now, ages 2 1/2 and almost 1. So it'll be me and 4 kids under 4. Yikes! Still, it was an offer I couldn't refuse. Only half days, P & E will be right there with me, and it'll actually be cash that I earned, not bummed off of G. I still feel weird about that sometimes.

Speaking of G, though, his new job is going well. Only hitch is, this is his fourth week there, and he hasn't gotten paid yet. That'll happen tomorrow, but even that will only be for 4.5 days. It'll still be another 15 days before he gets a full paycheck. Argh.

And finally, last and probably least, tomorrow I am off to see my OB/GYN about getting on some sort of something to regulate my now completely insane cycle. Ever since I weened the babies, it could be 25 days, it could be 65 days. I'm thinking this is a problem. We still don't know if we'll shoot for more kids, but IF we do, I'm sure she'll want us to try on our own for a few months, right? But something is clearly wrong here, so I'm thinking, let's fix it now while I'm NOT hormonal and psychotic about not being able to get pregnant. Because let's face it. Should we decide to ttc #3, the psychosis will undoubtedly come soon enough.
