Yay! A Blog!

I've been meaning to update this thing for the longest darn time.  I have so much to say.  Unfortunately, the blog crashed my browser every time I tried to update for the last month or so.  So, I downloaded Google Chrome.  I pinky swear it was because I wanted to update my blog and NOT because I wanted to play Angry Birds.  Promise.

That.  That is a lie.  The Dudes have become obsessed with Angry Birds, and I wanted to see what all of the fuss was.  I downloaded the Chrome version and beat it in a day.  Meh.  What I DO love about it, though.  The sounds!  SO FUN!  I love the music and the little noises the birds make.

Ok, ok, I'm watching Supernanny.  Sometimes, I watch this for tips.  I do the Supernanny time outs for the Little Man.  I do them with Big Man, too, but rarely.  Little Man does what they do on TV.  Scream and run, scream and run, though not all of the time.  Depends on his mood swings.  Big Man sulks to the corner, stands there for a few minutes, and goes about his way.  Sometimes I watch Supernanny to say, "Oh, goodness, at least the dudes aren't THAT bad!"  Then, sometimes I watch and go, "OMG, Little Man is TOTALLY that bad."  Either way, it makes me feel better that I'm not alone, or that I'm not "that mom".  This show also makes me realize that "that mom" is a stressed out messball.  I feel for her in public.  I find myself smiling and making faces at screaming babies and toddlers in the grocery store instead of disrupting my shop to go to a different section of the store until they're gone.  THANKS, SUPERNANNY!

Aaaaanyway.  WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!  We closed on it yesterday and get to move in TWO WEEKS!  It's a little bit stressful, though I think it's more stressful for the rest of the family than it is for me.  Little Man is having a rough time of it, I think.  We're trying to prepare him as much as possible for the new schedule, which is going to be CRAZY!  We aren't comfortable changing him schools in the middle of the school year.  We want to disrupt his schedule as little as possible.  Plus, he's started counseling at his current school.  Then, once we found out that the new school doesn't even offer full-day kindergarten, the deal was sealed.  We'll be driving the dudes an hour to and from school every day.  It's gonna be super nutso MaGoo until the middle-ish of June when they get out.

ALSO! OMGOMGOMG!! I GRADUATE IN MAY!  I am all signed up for my final three classes:  African Politics (my senior seminar), The Politics of Terrorism, and The Politics of Human Consumption.  Gonna be loooads of research.  I'm excited.  I'm writing one huge super paper on the Iraqi conflict this semester, and it's been a really enjoyable project.

The most stress actually hasn't come from the dudes or the new house for me.  It's come from the baby.  Yes, baby.  We are actively trying to conceive!  It's very exciting for us.  We've been planning it for a while.  The stress for me, though, is kinda horrible.  I am ready to get back to work, especially after I graduate, and I'm not sure that I can do that if I have a baby.  My main goal after graduation is to start working on LuLunacy ASAP.  However, I'd like to have a part-time money making job as well.  I don't like not providing financially.  If we have a baby, it wouldn't work with the daycare situation.  As it is, we've got a while to figure it out.  We aren't even pregnant, yet, and who knows if we will be.  Yet to be seen.

Holy Mcbobbysocks, this Glam Fairy show is the worst thing I've ever seen.  Time to shut off the electronics and practice guitar :D
