Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction.


Believe it or not, there are women out there with three kids (some with three BOYS even) who actually find time to knit. And I mean knit. Not the "row here, row there" that I've been doing lately, but some gals actually finish things in a reasonable amount of time. Me? I've been working on a single sock for two weeks. Indeed.

I'm here still, folks. Alive and knitting, but crazy busy with life. Changes at work (new boss in two weeks; third boss in three years), interviewing a new member of my team today (keep your fingers crossed) and lots of time gearing up for our big scientific meeting in May. Busy indeed.

And the boys. What can I say? Last night they wanted to do silly pictures of the Brothers Three since it was L'il I's 7-month birthday. (I take pictures on the 12th of every month. I figured it would not only make a neat spread for his first birthday, but it would also make sure I take pictures of him regularly.) Aren't they sweet? Indeed.

They are indeed. They love their little brother more than just about anything. But how can you not love a little wee one that's so adorable? Not to mention that he's getting a lot more interesting these days ...

And the best is yet to come. Indeed.

When Life Gets in the Way of Blogging...

I've been struggling for the past two weeks trying to think of something to write for my TWO bloglines subscribers and coming up with nada. So today, in the interest of at least posting something, I thought it might be neat to go back two years and see what I posted about two years ago when the blog was still relatively new. You know, comment on what I might have posted, projects I was working on, etc.

Here's the post. There's nothing quite like wanting to go back in time ...
