retraction

so, i actually was not saying that i dislike charlie brown. i'm a pretty big fan, in fact. although i will admit, in all honesty, that it is one of those things that i could swear was exponetially more awesome when i was younger. i think it might just come down to the principle of when a charlie brown special is on, there is a holiday looming just around the corner...that, and i played a very female version of snoopy in a high school play...anyway, i was actually just saying (in a very cryptic way apparently) that i was frustrated. i need to put pictures on the internet, both for your viewing pleasure and my own sanity. there have been some rather annoying stumbling blocks in my path, however. first, the camera has been m.i.a and by m.i.a, i mean in andy's truck...which has been anywhere from salem to sedrow woolley for the past two months. second, my computer apparently has the swine flu because it won't allow me to upload or even look at any of my pictures. third, i have a 3 year old who thinks that my attention is necessary at all times, except for when thomas the tank engine is on, then it really doesn't matter if anyone else is in the room--until the show ends of course, then someone really needs to be there to take part in the dance party that is "down by the docks."

frustration #2-my parents' house has yet to sell despite me really, really wishing that it would. anyone in the market for 5 acres? yeah, me neither...unfortunately.

frustration #3-i've come to the realization that i've spent far too much of my husband's hard earned money on baby carriers that i don't end up appreciating like i hoped i would. i bought a ridiculously expensive maya sling and hated it...i'm not a sling wearer. i found out the hard way. they hurt. i also bought a not quite so ridiculously expensive, used baby bjorn. i thought it would be awesome. not so awesome. an ergo would be awesome. ever since i had my first child, i wanted a carrier that could be worn on the front and the back. did i listen to myself way back when? i guess we all know the answer because here i sit with no ergo and two carriers that i wish i could sell, but i should really just give away because that's the right thing to do and maybe the only thing that will allow me to redeem myself after all this whining...

4th and final frustration-bones came back tonight after giving up their television time to the yankees...that, in itself, is awesome. what is not awesome is that its looking more and more like angela and hodgins are really not going to get back together. does this frustration make me sound petty and far too interested in a scripted romance? if so, i apologize. they were just so great together. it made me happy. right now, not so happy...hence--aarrgghh!

there you have it. my life is basically over or, in reality, i really have nothing of actual substance to complain about. i have a wonderful family. sofi is probably the happiest, loveliest, wonderfulest little gift from God there could ever possibly be. luke is starting to put more and more hilarious sentences together and andy works really hard to provide for us all. life doesn't get much better...i just wish i could find a way to show you all-aka remove my camera from its mobile home and figure out how to cure my computer of its illness. until then, enjoy the pictures in your mind that are formed by my oh so illustrative words...or just enjoy another blog that is written by someone who is good at posting pictures. i'll understand :)

you are too funny girl. All of those "frustrations" are all valid, and important!!! And yes, charlie brown is frustrating but I still sit there and watch it hoping just once that he would have his wish granted this holiday season... oh well, here's to hoping!

You are silly. You should totally sell your carriers and get an ergo, if that's what you want. I will help you. You are coming over to my house and we are posting your carriers on craigslist (the boys can watch Thomas while we do the work) and you can try my carriers out. Also, if you find one you like, you can borrow it for as long as you need. I have two SSC carriers (that's nerd lingo for a carrier you can wear on the front or back with a padded waist like the ergo). :)

If you REALLY want to put your pictures on your blog, come over here and we'll do it on MY computer. It doesn't seem to be sick at the moment and I have a card reader that works with most types of memory cards. I have some Thomas movies too!

My first two children and I LOVE my sling. It's a Zolowear. My 3rd baby--the CRIER--does not love it however. Sad! So let's switch. You try mine--it's TERRIFIC! And send me the Baby Bjorn. Done. :)

Okay, I'm still finishing up season 4, but Angela and Hodgins? Ug. He totally deserves better than that... Not that it matters though, because Sweets is definitely my favorite character right now.
