Real Hawk.

I know my many millions of readers are wondering where I've been lately - I'm here. I'm just not terribly poetic lately.

However, I shaved my kid's head, AND I took pictures.

Early Aversion To Housework.

I vacuumed the living room rug today. The Russian Mafia (My new nickname for the Czar and my nephew Max - clever, nyet?) were displeased by this. Max objected by lying stock still on his play gym and hoping the monster would go away.

The Czar was pissed. He immediately burst into tears and started flapping his hands at the wrists in a totally panicked way. Then, instead of running away, he started crawling toward the vacuum. I think he was trying to get to me and he was really mad at the mean loud thing that was in the way.

Poor baby.

I was doubled over laughing. I actually kept vacuuming a little longer than necessary because I was laughing so much. I'm such a bad mom.

There may be a dearth of pictures for the foreseeable future. I think the camera has kicked the bucket and I need to convince Android that we need a new one. Shouldn't take too long as I am not above throwing a full-on temper tantrum.

Happy Mother's Day!

I'm exhausted and overwhelmed by the amount of work that needs to be done before we are officially "moved in". That pretty much wraps up the last two weeks.

The kid has a cold, and the rivulets of snot that cover his upper lip totally gross me out.

It's a good thing I still have birthdays because Mother's Day ain't what it's cracked up to be.

Still, the kid is cute.

Rough day.

We moved out of our apartment and into our house today. The house, once spacious and echo-y is now crammed full of boxes and mismatched furniture. Still, it feels like home.

We're strangely split between the two houses for a while, though. For example, as we have no internet at the house, our computer is still in the apartment. All of our dishes, utensils and other kitchen paraphernalia are in the apartment. I imagine we'll be snagging things as needed for at least a week.

The cats are confused, but we're leaving them here at least until after the housewarming party tomorrow. Poor things don't have anything soft to sit on. Finn is sleeping on a cardboard box. Sad.

I'm so very very tired. There is too much to do and not nearly enough hours to do it in.
