So let me just say this - I apologize for our extended absence from the interwebs. I never really meant to take an impromptu bloggie break, but, well, things just sorta happened. Life happened. Once this little guy finally came into the world, we've been going and haven't really stopped, and before we knew it, it'd been a couple months since we've done much with the blog.
To catch you up on what's been going on with us lately...
After 2 months of maternity leave and getting to know the newest member of our family, I decided that I just couldn't handle going back to work - leaving the Con-man would totally break my heart. Yep. So I quit (which was pretty rough for me, because I've never been much of a quitter - I like to stick with things once I start 'em). Now I'm proud and happy to say that I'm a stay at home Mom. And (total shock to me, actually), I must say being a parent is much MUCH harder than I expected, but totally worth it. Everytime Connor smiles or laughs, my heart just melts and I forget about the latest crying episode. I guess it's a bit like that little black memory-erasor thing in the movie Men In Black. But, you know, more baby-ish and cute.
As far as my partner in crime goes, Tom has been interviewing all over the country (see? I told you we were busy!) at various anesthesia residency programs. He'll make a list ranking his top choices, and then the programs will rank their top student choices, and eventually he will be matched with one of his picks. Exciting, right? After he graduates this May as an official doctor (oh.my.gosh.), he'll enter into the residency program he was matched to this summer and begin as a resident, where he will spend the next four (count 'em, four) years until he graduates and becomes a real doctor.
Since things have finally calmed down around here with the new addition, we're finding we have some time and energy to devote to house stuff again (yay!). Although our updates won't be everyday like they used to be, you can expect updates when we can. For starters, I'm personally shooting for at least 2 a week, but we'll see if the Con-man will be cooperative with that. The little guy doesn't always take naps anymore, which puts a bit of a cramp on the ole' house project time.
What else has changed around here? Well, anyday of the week you'll find our previously decently-clean house looks a little like this once you walk in the door...
Yep. Gotta love it.
Anyways, it's good to be back!
