So back to our regular program...

Today is Friday...I have officially made it through my first week at home alone with the wee ones, and it has been a very good week all things considered. I am glad to be back in my role as mommy in charge, and I am glad to be in my non pregnant body. Here is the good, the bad, the ugly recapped:

The Good:
* I napped every day except for today...but today I was not tired enough to sleep so I was able to catch up on some online projects... mainly, moving my blog over here :0).

* I was able to take the kids on our first outing all three in tow. We went to the library and the park... it was a blast!

* On Tuesday I dropped the older kids at Mother's Day Out and took Sweet Pea on errands with me. He actually slept an entire hour while I was at coffee bean and I got to read and enjoy my coffee!!!

The Bad:
* Boo had three potty accidents in one day. =(

* Baby J has been waking up multiple times at night, so we are tired parents

The Ugly:
* All three kids had meltdowns at the same time on Wednesday. Boo pooped in his pants, Baby J did not want to take her nap, though she was exhausted. And of course Sweet Pea was just hungry and I didn't get to him soon enough. =(

I survived the week and really I think we all thrived.

Blogging Groove

I've been blogging for a little over 3 years and have had two previous homes. First I used moveable type with my own family url, but I had huge problems with spam. I just got frustrated and because I am not so tech savvy, I could not solve the problem by myself. Then I moved to livejournal and I loved that interface, the value of templates and other user friendly features. I was happy there for a pretty long time, but I never really used it like it was intended. I never really networked and the few friends I had that also posted there slowly but surely started leaving...so what was the point? Also, I did a lot of ranting over there and that was starting to feel stale.

Then I developed a blog for my family to keep up to date with my kids here on blogger a couple of months ago and I just want to be able to go to one place and take care of all my blogging at once. I want a fresh start and I want to be able to link my blog to my email and user siglines on message boards I frequent... I want to be able to do that without worrying that something I said about someone three years ago when I was pissed will get back to them now.

So here is to fresh starts! I've got my groove on now! ;o)

Hopping on over here

So after a couple of months of blogging for the kiddies, I have decided to move my entire blog experience over here. I am trying to streamline my life and this is one area that will be easy to take care of. So join my for a cup of tea while I settle in here.
