2011 Updates

It's a disgrace, I know.  What's the point of starting a blog when you don't even write?  So what's my excuse?  Um, let's see.....I've been traveling for work, Lucia is such a handful, kids have been sick on and off, Christmas was crazy, I got conjunctivitis, resigned from my job, got a new job, and I've been reading a lot.  Oh, and it's also Facebook's fault.  It's much, much more convenient to post a quick status update here and there on facebook.  The hubby and I were discussing how revenues for the telecom companies went down as a result of facebook updates rather than the usual practice of text to all Christmas and New Year's messages.  That's technology for you. 

Anyway, I am sitting here in my unpainted but newly renovated home "office" and thought, I have a blog!  So I am giving in to the urge to write.  Not that I expect a lot of people to read all my bs.  I suppose a couple of my friends still do but well, never mind.  I just need the practice of putting thoughts to paper while I wait for my internet connection to kick in once more.

So, yeah, am having some minor renovation work done at the house.  I'm having a small room fixed to be a home office as I my new job is flexible enough to allow me to work from home occasionally.  Rather than my usual practice of using my bed for a desk (hurts my back), I'm going to have my very own office! (yippeee!) It's all done now, just needs painting so it will probably be done by next week.  It'll also give the kids a place to do their homework and reduce the school clutter in the dining room which was where they usually do their homework.

I'm also taking the opportunity have my own shoe cabinet and I am soooo excited to have it finished.  Apart from that, we're gettting some much needed bookshelves.  I'm in organizing mode folks!  I can't wait till everything's finished.  Then it's a matter of putting up our sleeves and being tough on all the junk and clutter at the house. 

On other fronts, kids are sick again.  Will be bringing Faith to the pediatrician at lunchtime today.  Joshua just went back to school today after being out for a week.  I am crossing my fingers and praying hard that Lucia gets spared this round. 

I've just finished 13 books for January.  Using the Kindle for Iphone application makes a huge dent on my reading list as I can read literally anywhere.  I think it's loads better than a kindle cause the phone has backlight that allows me to read in the car or in the shuttle going home. 

Ok, I gotta go send some emails then am off to the pediatrician at lunchtime.  Janet Jackson concert this Friday!!!  Can't wait! :D

Ya, you should write more. There are so few bloggers who can actually write! Oops, don't say I said that =P
