I am so sorry to you, my 3-4 loyal readers, for my total lack of blogging in the past two months. My list of excuses is long and includes such doozies as "I just had a baby," "I'm exhausted because I always have to get up at night to feed the baby," and so on and so forth. However, the REAL reason I'm such a blogging lagger (see title of this post for my fun new term) is that the happenings in my life over the past two months are quite difficult to quantify in mere words. There are many suitable topics I could cover, however. Maybe I could start just by listing them here, and then covering them one by one in future posts. Okay, I feel better already. I will create a nice little outline-slash-project-plan and then attack them one by one. Wow. That is so satisfying! Like an electronic version of a to-do list.

Topics to cover in future blogs:
1) How I actually came to own a pillow called "My Brest Friend," and how said pillow has made my life immeasurably easier.

2) How annoyed I am that I can't follow that sage advice, "Sleep when the baby sleeps."

3) How bizarre it is that when you go into the hospital to HAVE a baby, they actually let you LEAVE with the baby. And how the baby not only goes home with you that day, but continues to LIVE with you, FOREVER.

4) The Culture of Daytime People. By this I mean the extremely large number of people who don't work during the day, and who are out and about in various places at 10:30 a.m. such as the dry cleaners, the drugstore and the mall. Ranked in order of probability, my guess is that these people are stay-at-home moms, waiters, bartenders and possibly drug dealers.

5) How I continue to torture myself by trying on my old jeans a couple of times a week, and what odd masochistic impulse compels me to do so.

Well, that'll be a start. Look forward to me covering each of these in detail soon, and forgive my absence. I've missed you, really I have.

welcome back! i knew your return was right around the corner. we have missed you and i think the list idea was a good one. i can't imagine even knowing where to start after a two-month baby-having hiatus. there must be so much to say.

Bearca.... Welcome back to the world of words. I know you have many saved up; let-um out! So there's a baby? What no pictures?

I'm so glad you're back. I can't wait to hear all of your experiences as a new mom.

I thought the same thing about those who are out and about during the day. IT always seemed weird to me that they weren't at work. I do believe that your theories about their occupations are correct ... although I don't know if drug dealers would go the dry cleaners! :)
