I sat down to actually blog... but I STILL cannot think of anything to blog about. So I guess I'll just give you all a life update.

A) Time is passing at an incomprehensible rate lately. Mia is 2 and a half today, and Vince is 4 days away from being 9 months old. She's fully potty-trained, and is developing a very funny little personality. He crawls and cruises all over the apartment and still refuses to eat solid foods, leaving his mommy to be a milk-o-matic ALOT of the time.

B) Since Andrew's job search hasn't been super lucrative, we've decided to just bide our time in our same old pattern for awhile... which means no house for us at least for a little while. I'm a little dissappointed that I've got to stay put in our apartment for longer than I thought, but I'm super glad that I don't yet have to quit my job which is still the coolest most wonderful job EVER. And, A&I switched our hours up so that, except for 1 night a week, we're always all home by 6p and no one ever has to leave earlier than 7:15a to go to work. Consistency is nice.

C) I went in to get my cholesterol re-checked on Friday. I find out if the 30 pounds I've lost since January has had any effect on my cholesterol. I will be SUPER PISSED if it hasn't... but the doc was pretty sure it would make at least some difference.

D) Speaking of losing 30 pounds, I am now at the smallest weight that Andrew has ever known me at, I can fit into pants that I bought 4 years ago and most of them are TOO big, AND I wonder why I EVER thought I was fat in high school because I was only about 5 pounds less then, than I am now, and I'm feeling pretty cute these days. I guess that's what having 2 babies in 3 years does to you... it gives you some definite body-image perspective.

E) We got to see Sister Sophia Grace this summer. It's still vaguely ironic to me that she's the one who became a nun, and I'm the one who ended up getting married and popping out kiddos like crazy. I'm not sure anyone would have guessed that when Kim and I became roommates just after college. God is a funny guy. Nevertheless, it was wonderful seeing her and experiencing the pure joy that her vocation brings to her. Her eyes just glow with the love of Christ and it gives me peace to be around her.

F) When she was home, we had a small get together of some of the original Daisy House group. The funny thing about it was that there were sooooo many babies and toddlers there. The spawn of the Daisy House is beginning to overtake the originals. Again... SO MUCH HAS CHANGED IN FOUR YEARS. I'll post a pic at the bottom of this blog.

G) I hate that my blog is uber-boring as of late, and when I've tried to figure out why, I sort of come to two conclusions. Firstly, FACEBOOK takes way less effort and is about as effective. Secondly, my blog used to be about things that bugged me... but these days I'm too afraid (or lazy) to stir up the drama and then have to deal with it, so I tend to just skip the blogging. My husband does enough pot-stirring for the both of us I guess.

H) After 4 or 5 years, I finally have reconnected with my best friend from high school. It's been really neat hanging out with Kay again and has at least made the daunting task of attending my 10 year high school reunion seem at least a bit less daunting. (Though I'm still not sure I want to speak to all those kids who were mega-jerks in high school... do you suppose they've changed by now??)

I) I am LOVING this July weather. Andrew and I haven't had to turn our A/C on in like a week. It's been fabulous!

That's all I've got for now folks. If any of you are still out there reading, I appreciate your deligence in checking for new updates as I am admittedly getting much worse about it. Toodles!
