I made a promise to myself after the twins were born that I would give myself a few months of recovery and then reevaluate whether or not I wanted to breathe life back into Syntax of Things. The itch is back but now I've made myself promise myself one more thing: I will not start blogging again until I can get back to reading again.* I haven't finished a book that doesn't have a golden spine or 18-pt type since 1 month B.T. (before twins). Today was day one of a five-day weekend...today, I'd planned on starting Urrea's new novel. Today, I spent getting the new iPhone 3GS. Priorities, my friends. Tomorrow should be prime reading in between stints on the floor playing with Legos, time on the couch holding one, if not two, bottles, going up and down stairs trying to make sure everyone is accounted for.
Anyway, I've been away too long and I owe many of you who have been long-time readers at least a bit of an update. And I'll get to that soon enough. Until then, I hope a picture will do.
From L-R, Presley Jack, Marlie (who will be 3 in less than two weeks), and Harper Lily.
*I made the same promise about opening Bloglines up and reconnecting. I haven't opened Bloglines since February. I'm tempted to dump and run to another feed reader. I fear what awaits me when I do click on the B.
