Bad blogger

I've been bad at keeping my blog updated lateley. I could blame it on the heat, but the air conditioner is located a foot from the computer. It's actually almost cold sitting here.

  • I missed my blog's second anniversary. Sarah Sez is two years old! My baby sure has grown.
  • We finally got our pool open and swimworthy. The new liner looks great. I have before and after pictures that I will share soon. Jack wants to be in the pool every moment he is awake. With Harry's fair complexion and breathing problems he can't be outside in the heat and sun that much, so that leaves Jack none to happy. He has been pretty lucky to have friends over that he can swim with while I stay inside with Harrison.
  • Even though the pool was filled with super cold water straight from the water truck it only took about two days for it to be warm enough for even me (who likes it warm) to swim in.
  • Can you believe Sarah Jessica Parker named her babies Marion and Tabitha? I hope she is paying homage to Mrs. C from Happy Days and Tabitha from Bewitched.
  • I just asked Jack to sing the God Bless America song he learned at VBS. Instead he sang the ENTIRE theme song from American Dad (the adult cartoon on Fox). I am such a good Mom ;) I don't think I will ask him to perform at the Bierman's annual fourth of July bash.
  • Harrison really needs to learn how to crawl. He is great at rolling. Really good at it. He gets himself rolled into a corner and can't get out then cries until I come and get him.-
  • I spent WAY too much time searching for a Fourth of July outfit for Harrison. I finally gave up and got something (and it was cute and just fine) from Old Navy and a Old Navy flag T for Jack. Not what I had in mind, but it will do. I don't remember wearing holiday outfits as a child. Now, it seems like you need to get some sort of a t-shirt or special outfit for Valentine's Day, Independence Day, Earth Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Not to mention Christmas, Easter, and Halloween which all require a new special outfit, but also some sort of a t-shirt to wear to school or the grocery store.
  • Jack is playing ball. I also have pictures of that to post. I already don't like the ballpark. I know it will be my summer home away from home for the next 15 years or so.
  • Cliff left for work Sunday night and won't be home until Saturday evening. Spending every single minute of every day with the kids by myself is starting to take a huge toll on me. Sleep is a precious commodity that Harrison does not seem to realize the value of.
  • I am almost embarrassed to admit that I watched "I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here". Not religiously, but I was glad Lou Diamond Phillips won. Patti Blago seemed like an ok, normal gal. I hope she does not go to jail.

Sarah, it is time for you to get a part time babysitter - even just a couple of hours a week. There's got to be a high school kid that would love $20 for an afternoon's worth of work. You're going to go crazy from the lack of adult interaction!

I understand being mom when dad is away, my dh worked away from home for 3 years after ds#2 was born. It is hard to be the only one with the kids all the time. I remember craving adult conversation and I would visit message boards and blogs after they went to sleep at night. Tough time, but I have a lot of respect for single moms/dads now. Hang in there!
