The world is changing, I feel it in the earth...

So I started working from home in November 2003, and the entire time I've had one family member or another in the house with me pretty regularly. The exception being the first part of 2008 when Mom took ill and passed away. Well today, Shasta started back to work and Mac went to Aunt Sue and Uncle Steve's and it seems as though it'll be just me and the dogs during the day from here on out. I've gotten several calls and texts about how I'm doing and it's actually not bad. I do notice the lack of sound from outside my office. Particularly Mac crawling up to my closed door and yelling "Dadadadadada" while I'm talking to a customer. And I can actually leave my door open without having to worry about him crawling into the most unchildproof place on the planet. It's an adjustment but a necessary one and one that I think our family will be better for. I am extremely grateful to have been able to work and be home with Mac during the first months of his life and the time spent as a family has been great for all of us. The change is gonna be interesting, a good change I think but none the less interesting.

Here's a pic of Mac when I dropped him off this morning. Aunt Sue and Uncle Steve are already spoiling him, notice the new bouncie they got for him. Which he loves by the way!!!

9 Months, How It Flies

Is this thing on???

I was reminded the other day that even though I haven't posted here in forever, at least one person still checks my blog pretty regularly. In all honestly, I guess the world of facebook and twitter pulled me away and I've let short 2 or 3 sentence updates suffice. That and the fact that I'm keeping up with an almost 9 month baby boy who is growing waaayyyyy faster than he should have kept me from doing Randomish Stuph justice. The day after Mac was born a good friend told me "time flies now." And it's looking like he's right, I was browsing through some pics of the day we brought him home and was blown away at how tiny he was then and how much bigger he is now!

I do promise to make more of an effort to post more frequently in the future. I know some of you are saying "after 9 months that's all you got D?" Well for right now yes and you're just gonna have to wait for more :D
