So, uh...yeah.

So. Hi. I've been, uh, a bit absent lately. I would say that it's because there hasn't been anything interesting going on to write about, but that would be sort of a lie because I don't really write about stuff that's all that interesting anyway. Or I could say that it's because I've been so busy with getting ready for my meeting later this month, and I haven't had time to write a good post, but that would be a lie too because I've found time to go online and read other people's blogs and I could have posted. The truth of it is that I've been in another one of my moods, but this time I finally have done something about it and last week I went to a psychiatrist for a medication evaluation. And she took family medical history and got some background for my life, and when it's all laid out in front of me like that, I kind of think I was stupid for waiting so long ("I have a full time job and three kids...Oh, and my father-in-law have Alzheimers Disease...My brother-in-law is going to have another kidney transplant this summer, and my husband will probably be the donor...I have a huge meeting in a few weeks so I am going to have to be out of town for almost a week...my boss will be going on maternity leave this summer, so I will be running the September meeting on my own...") She gave me a prescription for Zoloft, which is supposed to help my anxiety and my depression, but right now it's just making me sleepy and thirsty and making my palms sweat. So, there it is.

Who's Who

    Hubby- aka DH My husband since 1995. He is the head of the band department at a college prep school, and dabbles as a wanna-be pop star.

    The Princess- aka DD. Third grader at the local parochial school. Loves butterlies, sparkly things, the color purple and has recently developed a crush on one of the twins from "The Suite Life of Zach and Cody". Is ready for her teenage years, having already perfected her exasperated sigh and dramatic eye-roll.

    Hoss- aka DS1. Kindergartener and resident spirited child. His aunt likes to call him "the evil genius" because of his penchant for letting a lack of intellectual stimulation lead him into mischief. Likes trucks, sports, building things and burping. His current favorite word is "underwear."

    Lil Joe- aka DS2. Born in 2003. Doesn't say much we can understand, but has mastered the important stuff ("eat!", "Wash hands!", "Want chocolate ones!", "Hockey game!") Likes to push buttons, much to the consternation of whoever is trying to watch a DVD. Firmly refuses to use the potty, despite evidence that he is physically ready to be out of diapers, indicating a level of stubborn that eclipses even that of his parents and siblings.

    Me? I'm the Mama. That's all you need to know.
