Oh man - I know - this is getting ridiculous - it's been like 10 days since I last posted - and I promised I would be getting back on the blogging bandwagon not that long ago. How quickly I forget. *sigh*

So here's the deal (deep breath): I'm still in Ontario, husband is back in Manitoba working, Ellery is already 6 weeks old, dial-up sucks and that's why I'm all but ignoring the Internet, I can't even check my cell messages because my voicemail doesn't work in the boonies, I forgot how many bugs are out in the country during the summer, it's so hot right now that my hair is in curls from all the humidity, I fear that I've been away from the city so long that soon my friends won't remember me, I've had the flu for about 4 days, Ellery has started shrieking in excitement when she hears husbands voice (I hold the phone to her ear when he calls), I didn't brush my teeth today, I just killed a mosquito, I'm feeling lost in my own life these days, Monica is coming down from the Bahamas in July and I can't freaking wait, I really wish I could go to an Ikea store tomorrow, my nose is itchy, and I'm exhausted.

Oh - and how come I blocked out how many times a baby needs to be changed in a day? How did I possibly forget that? It hasn't been that long since I was taking care of a baby all day!

Anyways, that's the scoop on me - I'll be back in the city next week for sure - if my family doesn't kick me out sooner.

Still here, Ali, checking daily.

Glad to hear all is good (except for the dial-up of course).

6 weeks? Wow! Where did that time go? Any chance of more piccies?

You sometimes wonder how something so small can produce so much poop, don't you? Wait till you start on the solids, things get really exciting - or fruit juice! I remember the horror of finding purple poop after one of them had blackcurrant juice!

I miss you girls so much!
It almost brings tears to my eyes when I hear Ellery talk back on the phone.
I can't wait to see you on Sunday!
Give her a kiss for me ok?

Seriously... you KNOW we wouldn't give up on you THAT easily. You have a new baby, for crying out loud. It's only right that you should be enjoying her rather than spending too much time entertaining us.

Hang in there TWM. Your posts are so funny these days- I do believe having a baby has sharpened your wit to a knife edge.
Oh don't forget to take the handcuffs back home with you.

I was suddenly reminded of David Soul singing "Don't give up in us baby"...

It is AMAZING how much those little guys need to be changed...
