hey, Becky

I have zero motivation to update this thing, but I have decided that it will be good for me to get back in the swing of writing..writing anything. So since I have only one reader, and I love her, I have decided to write like I'm updating Becky, personally. And I'm hoping that she will do the same.

This staying home with two kids? Kicking my ASS. Was I stupid, thinking having 1 measly 3 year old was hard? The baby is crawling now, and climbing on everything, and has decided that his very favorite activity is opening drawers, pulling up on his knees, then falling forward and closing the drawer on his fingers. Good times, my friend. He is cute as hell, though, luckily, and I look at him and can just see the big-bellied frat boy that lives inside him. He is completely and utterly smitten with his big brother, and laughs a big old frat boy belly laugh when his brother deigns to make faces at him. And the Boy - well, he's still embroiled in his love/hate relationship with his baby brother.

But. But! In less than a week I will be leaving for Aspen, sans children, for the wedding of a dear friend. 5 days without my kids - I get a little knot in my stomach just thinking about it. They will be with my parents, so no worries there, but it's the longest I've ever been away from them. I need it, though. We need it. We are in that stage where it's all kids, all the time, and no sleep, and winter cabin fever, and long hours at work. No time for us at all, really. And me, I'm a fiery mess. My hair has suddenly turned to straw, refuses to hold its curl evenly, which nicely accentuates the two inch crackwhore roots. I have two big old zits on my face, dark circles, and we will not even discuss the flesh OOZING over the top of the push up bra I tried to buy today to hike these tired puppies up for the wedding. So, it's going to be blissful, unbroken sleep, a day at a spa, naps, yoga and a couple of books, amidst the wedding revelry. SO NEED THIS. Kids will be fine. Right? Right.

Ok, I do have more to say but I'm wiped. Better than nothing. x

You can titled the next one, "Hey Amanda" because I read you too. :)
Have fun in Aspen. And yes. Once both are mobile it is seriously sucky a lot. Give it a few months, it will get a lot easier. :)
