So I haven't written much lately because I've been busy or uninspired. Actually I think I've just got a case of the Blahs. You know, when you feel like speaking to no one and staring at the television mindlessly is divine.

Liam is more active now - needing more of my attention. He's not the blob who could sit for endless minutes staring at his thumb. He is thinking and doing and manipulating objects and looking for Mumma to make a crazy face. Or sound. Or something. He's not crawling, but he is yelling. He likes to yell and screech. Especially for more Cheerios or Gerber puffs.

Dan left this morning at 6:45 (when a fancy Town Car came and picked him up) for Seattle. This is adding to the Blahs. I'm sort of numb because I don't want to think too much about it and feel lonely and miss him. I do miss him, of course. But dwelling on it does nothing but make me sad so I'm just averting my mind from it. More Blah.

Liam is the only non-Blah thing going on in this house right now. He is the very antithesis of Blah. He's all about new things like vomiting after he eats 4 small pieces of carrot and almost vomiting after eating a teeny bit of a green bean. Cheerios are new. How can he eat the Cheerios and the puffs but not the squishy piece of cooked carrot or green bean that is the same size or smaller?

So the Blahs go on... I'm sure I'll snap out of it soon. Sometimes you need a little Blah to avoid the greater evils... like the Blues.

    I get the blahs big time during football season. I dread mid-July when Ed will be gone before I wake up, and home when I'm just getting to sleep. He's talking like this will be his last year coaching. I hope so, but I'm not holding my breath.

    I hope the time Dan is gone goes by quickly for you. If you get bored enough, you can always call me and listen to me bitch about school ;-)

    The Blahs suck. But I'm sure those pictures of the "sheik" perk you up.

    Did I spell sheik wrong is it sheik or shiek? I think it's sheik.

    hey babe--- I'll come up and keep you company---

    I mean, why not--- rhena doesn't seem to think she needs a nap, so she can scream at me the whole way up?

    just kidding.

    LOVE the pictures of Liam, though... I almost can't wait for him to have his first girlfriend.... PROMISE me you call me when you show her these!!! :)

    Sorry about the blahs Suz! I know how you feel. I hope they are gone soon!

    As far as girl friends go....what are we going to do? We have only 4 girls and what 11 boys. How are these boys gonna share the girls? :)

    Hey Susie- J goes out of town on Sunday until Thursday. Maybe we can meet for a girl's night out? :) Give me a call if you need an adult to talk to. I will do my best to impersonate one!

    I'd volunteer Rhena to be a hooker, but she only likes older men!!!

    (ok--- horrible mother in the house!!! I just said my duaghter's name and volunteer hooking in the same sentence!!! WTF???)

    where's my medicine, Susie???? ;)

    Carrie - your meds are probably what made you say that. Cze-Johnson Brothel Fever.

    Could you guys BE any funnier? (that is my best Chandler impression, by the way) :)

    suz, I'm sorry you've got a case of the blahs. I wish, OH, I wish we were all closer so we could hang out in the evenings and on weekends. :) Hang in there and have a great day tomorrow w/ Jodes and Jess!
