first let me say that i have eaten three crackers and had a soy latte so far today, so my concentration skills are currently, um, what's that word? um...
but i leave tomorrow for the 3,000 mi. flight back to new england to see my family and my NEW NEPHEW!
charlie was born today at 3:37 p.m. EDT and was 8 lbs., 14 oz.!!! BIG baby!
and unexpectedly, this has made me cry. i suddenly realized that my sister is actually a mother and this is all suddenly quite amazing. and of course, life being amazing = me sobbing uncontrollably. for hours. and hours.
but i have not been able to keep up with much-needed blogging because i have had some personal stuff to take care of, including but not limited to the blog party; a going-away party; doctor visits (SO the voldemort); an encore going-away party involving many cocktails, drunk lawyers and 8 dancing queens; spending six hours writing a quiz; and um, boys.
this has not left much time for blogging.
however, as i will be trapped on a plane tomorrow for nine million hours, i will be drafting all my horrendously overdue entries. from more episodes of breezy elegance to the stupid things boys say to the advice from mr. jersey to the entry that will highlight the illustrious Make-Out Kate*.
off to quiz...
*who is Make-Out Kate? she is a local celebrity in her own right. stay tuned to find out why. she can also teach you a lesson or two about DNA. more to come.
