The Mommy Blogger Who Cried Wolf

Remember the story of the little boy who cried wolf? Kept saying there was a wolf, the village got all scared and there was no wolf. Rinse. Repeat. Several times. And then when there really was a wolf no one believed him?

Since I've gone back to work, on top of taking a grad class and being a Mommy and Wife, blogging has gone out the window. But I kept promising I'd come back. Rinse. Repeat. And I don't. I'm beginning to feel like the Mommy Blogger Who Cried Wolf. And that when I actually post some Real Content no one will be here to believe me.

So - here goes some Real Content. And yes, it's New Years Eve and here I am blogging. But that's because our New Years Eve event got cancelled. Our neighborhood has a count down to 8:15pm each New Years Eve. Roasting hot dogs and marshmallows on the fire pit in the cul-de-sac. Kids running around with glow sticks and silly string. And at 8:14pm the countdown to 8:15 begins. (this allows little ones to go to bed having participated in a modified count down and/or parents to head out to the adult parties).

But OhMyGod! it's cold out. And OhMyGod! it's windy out. So it was cancelled. Which I was actually quite pleased about.

So, me and my warm hot chocolate with butterscotch schnapps are inside the house chilling in front of the TV with Adam who is drinking his hot chocolate. And we're getting ready to watch Stonehenge on the Smithsonian channel.

Yea, we're kinda geeky like that sometimes.

It sounds like a nice night, actually. :)

I'll be here no matter how often you write. You've been granted a permanent spot in my feedreader.
