But I’m using this as part of a scavenger hunt for someone. So please to be ignoring the animated GIF below, unless you’re someone (and you know who you are!)

Right. Already missed a day. Fubar. Oh well, I shall still push along, in an effort to get back into the whole blogging thang. I’ve been trying to work on an actual post, but just can’t seem to focus, so I shall not push it tonight, and see what I can accomplish tomorrow.
Then life happened. But why not start fresh with a new attempt at NaBloPoMo? Ok? Everybody on board? Excellent.
Let me begin by copping out with a post that consists of my Facebook status from a few days ago, as the clock is ticking down on Mr. Man’s nap and I still haven’t cleaned the kitchen…
Today’s lesson: don’t carve your pumpkins too early. This will lead to massive pumpkin shrivelage, which will in turn send you to the internet to research restoring carved pumpkins (obviously.) This action will then lead you to fill your sink with water and pumpkins, with the intent of soaking them for 4-8 hours to re-plump. If you DO decide to carve your pumpkins early, also decide to mop the floor that morning, so you can discover the weight of the pumpkins and water in your cool but shoddily constructed renovated sink has caused the drain gasket to fail and water is slowly filling the cabinet under the sink. Which you will discover when you open the cabinet for the floor cleaner (again, obviously.) Upon this discovery, immediately freak the heck out and drain the sink, which will cause even MORE water to flood the cabinet, soaking your dishwashing detergent and necessitating a large-scale evacuation of all the nasty chemicals stored therein. Lastly, feel fortunate that this happened while your child was napping, so you can leave all the chemicals strewn about the kitchen willy-nilly to dry whilst you rush to Facebook to educate everyone on the dangers of carving your pumpkins too early.
Example A (the night the pumpkins were carved):
And then there’s Exhibit B, taken just two minutes ago, because of course we went ahead and put the pumpkins on the porch. Lazy FTW!
Well, I’ve been working on moving my archives over to this site, but have been hindered by two things.
1. I have a 2 month old and thus a fractured attention span. When most of the posts that I’m bringing over have lots of photos, and need photos uploaded, and I have to FIND the damn photos on our home server, well…
2. Due to my stupidity in letting both my domain and my hosting lapse, I’ve only got about half the posts I had at the old site and every time I open the folder of posts to bring more over, I get pissed at myself. My reaction to that? Close the computer in disgust. Which–I know. I’m an idiot, but there you go.
I’ve been working on Mr. Man’s birth story, and am hoping to get that posted soon, so we can all see some NEW content, not just regurgitated old posts.
Just testing if I can bring in my archives by back-dating a post. I certainly hope so, or I’ll be very sad.
