I figured out a way to write what I want to write when I don't want everyone to read what I'm writing. I have a secret blog that I will use when I get a chance to writing about such things.
I was all ready to dish on my weekend away but then I started thinking about other dramatic things in my life. Like how I'm a terrible business person and I don't do well with capitalistic ways of thinking. Also, how people kind of suck sometimes. Not to mention my inability to master time management. Along with the fact that I like to put my family before everything else, which can kind of stifle a business that wants to grow, Grow, GROW!!!
So I will update my secret blog soon, UNLESS there is a password protect feature for singular posts on typepad that I don't know about. I've looked and can't find such a thing.
I have the feeling that I've been reduced to writing about things that I want to write about but never write.....
Even though this is my blog I feel like I'm making a guest appearance of sorts. I've pretty much given up on this "space" for "Jen". You know, I named my blog well before MySpace, but it makes me blush to think that maybe that's what people think I'm referring to in my blog name. I always just meant that it's a space for me to go to be me. But who cares anyhow.
I've had a handful of people tell me that they miss me writing here and would like me to continue so I thought I would oblige that request since I have some stories to share. Maybe it will just be one story as my computer keeps acting up and turning itself off. In fact, I'm just going to keep publishing over and over till this little diddy is complete and hopefully nobody is out there reading as I type wondering what the heck is going on over here. OH, tomorrow I'm getting a new mac book and kissing this miserable pc goodbye. It will be more of a gentle, "we're letting you go" until I get all my pictures off the hard drive. Once that has been accomplished I'm taking a bat to the MoFo.
When this post is truly complete, I'll write THE END, so you'll know that you've read the complete post. And hey, if you would be so kind as to say "HI" if you've dropped by. I miss you all and would like to be able to say "HEY" if only for one more time.
Hrrrmmmm. I just realized that I might need to password protect my blog to write about all that I want to write. Hmmmmmm.
OK, the meat will have to wait until later when I have that taken care of. If you want me to share the password info let me know and I'll do so when I complete that post.
In the meantime.....The past two days we spent in Jeremy's hometown of Bakersfield. We had a family photoshoot to be in, which I will write about later. I can tell you that Emily was such a good girl, eager to please. Audrey was shy, but at the same time somewhat strong willed in nature. Molly was a complete ham and I think she stole the show.
One of my biggest concerns about this visit was sleeping arrangements for the kids. After a LOT of discussion. Why must there be SO MUCH TALKING???? Jeremy and I decided to put Emily and Audrey in one room on Roo Beds (these are so cool) http://www.daysendproducts.com/camping.html while Molly would be in a pack n play in the room that Jeremy and I would be sleeping in. This was a kind of a huge big deal because normally Audrey and Molly sleep in cribs. Audrey has never slept free range and Molly has never slept in a pack n play either. Audrey was a little wary about her sleeping bag style bed but got over that once I allowed the light to stay on in the room she shared with Emily. Molly was somewhat OK with the pack n play and succumbed to sweet sleep after about 10 minutes of roaming around the pack n play. It was kind of like watching a little pup wind down for the night.
I wasn't too surprised that the girls all fell asleep fairly quickly. The day had seemed to go on forever and nobody had a nap. Cocktail for disaster but it was all taken in as much stride as I could muster. I find that I'm perpetually tired and I think I come off as being aloof when really I'm just too tired to string a sentence together. This is a sad state of living and I'm working on improving it.
