I'm so sorry I've been MIA lately. I promise I'll be back and posting regularly again. I've never been so busy, between Carter's party, family in town, and getting our lives back in order, I'm surprised I've had time to shower lately. And I've been failing at that too I guess. Haha.

I'm still reading all your blogs, unfortunately blogger is being a dork again and not letting my comment on some of my favorite blogs from my work computer, and I tend to do all my blog reading on my lunch break so that kind of sucks. Especially after I type out a nice heartfelt and hilarious comment and it doesn't go through so my effort is wasted. I'm going to try and make an effort to comment from home.

I haven't touched my camera or Photoshop in a few weeks so hopefully that will change soon. Maybe one of my preggo friends will let me take some pictures of their bellies soon for fun?

Last week Andy and I actually ventured from home and drove the 30 miles to Hollywood, on a work night, and saw a concert! A real concert! I was pretty uncomfortable the whole time and sat down in a chair in the corner, but hey, it was a real concert! We saw the band Gomez play, we are both fans, and we also loved the opening acts Greylag and The Kopecky Family Band. All really good bands, if you like Indie-Folky-Rockish music, you'll dig it.

Here are some other things I've been doing recently:

Halloween Horror Nights at Universal with my mom, sisters and a few friends last Friday (if you enjoy being chased by a satanic clown with a chainsaw, go for it!).

Celebrated my sister Kat's 40th Birthday (I think she is lying and is really the same age as me, we are super close and I couldn't imagine not starting my day with a little coffee and chit chatting with her).

Carter and I ate something nasty yesterday and it gave us a stomach bug. He was way worse than me and woke me up at 4am, and then barfed all over me, in my bed, twice. The 2nd time came after we had bathed him, replaced the sheets and washed the dirties. Fun stuff I tell you. All I could think about at 4am, puke on my arm, is what in the world would I do with TWO barfy kids at 4am? One is too much. Sigh.

We're going up to San Francisco at the end of the month for work, and we're bringing Carter with us! Can't wait to introduce Carter to the city that Andy and I met in.

HALLOWEEN is almost here! Yikes! No costume ideas for Carter yet, although he is really into the cartoon Wow Wow Wubbzy and I found a Wow Wow costume so I might go that route. I want to choose something I know he's into rather than dress him in something I find cute, but then again I'm running out of years where I can dress him in whatever I want without any objections.

Next weekend is the annual Pumpkin Festival in a nearby town. Looking forward to bringing Carter like we did last year, and possibly going car shopping for Andy.

Carter can pretty much say any word he wants now, he repeats almost everything he hears, and sometimes he shocks us with words or phrases that we have no idea where they came from. He says thank you ALL the time, and sorry. It's the cutest thing in the world when I unbuckle his car seat, and like clockwork he says "Tank you, tank you" while giving me the cutest little smile. He is due for his 2 year check up soon and I'm sure he's grown like a weed from his last appointment. I'm working on getting him to say "Trick Or Treat" so he'll be prepared for Halloween.

The holidays are going to be so much fun this year. Carter is at an age where he understands the concept of presents. Seeing his face on Christmas morning will pretty much sum up all the reasons why I wanted to have kids in the first place.

That's about it. Thanks for sticking around. I promise to update more VERY soon.

You've been busy.

Oh, the barfy-kid-in-the-middle-of-the-night is a special circle of hell reserved only for parents. Welcome to the circle!

As to a second, it will come along at the right time and, well... you'll still get to experience more barfing. ;)
