Back by Popular* Demand

*Popular- Meaning two friends said "you should blog again"

Ok, so here's the thing. I went off the grid (offline? Absent? not sure what the proper blogger lingo would be) for a while. I missed it but at the same time I had nothing to say. Nothing good to say anyway. Yep, I was in that deep dark hole of depression again. Maybe I can write about it some day, but not right now. I can say that I'm in a much better place right now.
Husband has found a job he likes (he and his coworkers are having a robot building competition for fun). Alex has his own room (which he loves), he's sleeping much better and he eats more than just yogurt now. I'm still a stay at home mom but went back to work one day a week, good for me, great for Alex to get a guaranteed full day of daddy time. I weaned Alex from the boob, so, hello? Wine. Nice to see you again!

I'm getting out more! By myself! At night! One stormy night as I left the house my husband asked "so you're going out in a storm to go downtown to meet a bunch of strangers in a hotel that you met on the internet?". "Yep, don't wait up!" I answered as I left to meet up with a lovely bunch from the Dooce Community (AKA Doocebags). I came out of my shell for a bit and I liked it. Last night I stay out until 1 AM at a baby shower for a lovely friend. I chatted, I drank (a bit), I bought an awesome cake (story for another post) to go with the equally awesome food everyone brought, and I smiled. A lot.

It's a good thing.

Alex, my little Baby Gap model. Mama needs to be more like you.
