Ahoy mates!

Holy crap have I been busy.

No, I have not been busy entering giveaways. :-) In fact, I've hardly been on the internet at all for the past week. Much of that was an effort to avoid Lost finale spoilers (caught up now) and the rest was due to parental visits, spending a week as a stay-at-home-mom (how do you ladies keep up?!) and Big-Happenings-To-Be-Blogged-About-Shortly.

In the meantime, an answer to Katie's question on my last post: I usually don't waste time on the extra entries (except for following via google/blogger) unless I really, really want the prize being given away. Twitter seems to be the most common way of racking up extra entries but I don't know the first thing about tweeting - that is what it's called, right? ;-) So yeah, I usually just do one or two entries and move along. And also to Katie... congratulations on your win!!! If you're anything like me, you're in really big trouble now. :-) I initially thought I would only obsess over giveaways until I won something. Ha. My first win multiplied my addiction by about 1000%.

Oh, and just so this post isn't all business, I will tell you we have one new tooth in the front (#7) and at least one molar about to break through so no one is sleeping well in our house. Ugh. E has also picked up some two syllable words (flower, bubble) and added the second syllable to some others (kitty, bottle) and it makes him sound eerily person-like.

So. The contest thing? I blame you! I am totally hooked now and check every day for things to try and win. lol. I will let you know when it pans out ;-)

Sorry about the molar- those are the worst. We're working on #2 here and it's just as bad as the first.

Oh, my god, I am SOOOOO in are too right!! It's ugly around here. :) Anyway, I have to admit that I have now won 3 things! So of course now I expect to win everything!! :) I won some $130 Gore-tex rain pants from LLBean and some weird thing called CoverMates that you put over your leftovers instead of plastic wrap. I think. Those haven't arrived yet. Anyway, I don't know whether to thank you or curse you, but I'm going to go with thank you! I'm assuming the novelty will wear off. Eventually.
Sorry about the teeth but yay about new words! Gavin is still word-less at coming up on 18 months. Oh well, I'm sure he'll get there eventually!
