It's Delurking Day! That means all you peeps who come by and read periodically but don't comment, now is your chance!!!!!
So please leave me a comment. I am so curious about the folks reading that I don't know. I can tell from the stats that you're coming and reading. Please leave a note about yourself.
And not just today! Commit to delurking!!!
The semester is off to a fabulous start. Having everything prepared ahead of time really has taken a load off. Oh, and not teaching an overload helps too. Not in the bank account department, but you know.
I'll announce this here, and see how long it takes my mom to mention it to me, and I'll know if she's been reading the blog. I'm going on vacation. For the President's Day weekend. With Jellybean Mama and JR. And I am so freaking excited I can't even wait. Even though it means a 14 hour drive in a car with a toddler, and peeing by the side of the road if she's asleep, according to the aforementioned JM. We are going to swim in an indoor lazy river, and ... well, probably do that some more. If she lets me, I'll probably sleep on a float in that indoor lazy river. SO stoked.
Other items of note:
1. Allergy shots suck. Actually, it's the getting there before they close, waiting the half hour after getting them, and trying to do all that in time for dinner at a reasonable hour that sucks more (but the two needles in the arms of my toddler isn't exactly a picnic, no matter how good she is or how many bath ducks they give her.)
2. What potty books do you guys recommend? I have to buy a new potty chair - or the seat that Funky Mama Bird recommended - because she totally doesn't like the potty we have. But she tells me when she needs to be changed, usually only poops once (maybe twice) a day, and goes for periods staying dry, so I think we're close to being ready for training. I have Dinosaur vs the Potty, and a Scholastic one. If you're ever bored, you should get on Amazon and look up potty videos, and spend time reading what parents have written on the reviews. The ones that are the best are the ones that bitch for three paragraphs about the parent's view of the video, then end with "but my kid loves it, started using the potty right away, and we're totally out of diapers". Hmmm, perhaps leading with that, more relevant, information is a better idea than your personal hell at listening to the annoying songs.
3. I finally decided that I was willing to adopt the cat that I found online, only to find out that he's not available. Adopted, thankfully, not the other outcome. Minorly disappointed. So I'm looking for another cat. Maybe Spring Break will be a good time to bring a kitty home.
4. The randomness of this post is brought to you by bottled Stella Artois, now being carried by my local supermarket.

Okay, now you can comment. I've given you all the fodder I have at the moment.
