back online

thanks to a wonderful client of mine (and her incredible husband!) I am back online. It feels good, though I'm sure my housecleaning will now be on the decline.

I have many things to blog about, including a birth story (waiting for the ok to share), but cannot take the time to sit for very long right now.

Instead I leave you with a video of the most recent song that gets me moving!

still around

Thanks to my BlackBerry I'm able to check emails while my computer is down. I haven't been visiting too many blogs simply because it's more complicated on my phone.

I have a client who is bartering with me for a solid computer. In the meantime, my online time is limited. You'd think that this would naturally result in a much cleaner house, but we recently acquired cable TV. The ability to record and watch later my favorite programs is a dream. I have to admit there are some new shows that I've taken to...I won't even begin to list them here because they are so embarassing!

The two holiday moms have not birthed yet. Everything is rather quiet around here, aside from my trip to Sephora last night!

Hope everyone is warm, healthy and feeling loved!

computer woes

Interesting that I took the time to upload all of my photos "in case". My computer is now dead.

About a year ago, a certain baby loved to open my CD drive. She liked to push the little button and watch the drawer open. Once when the drawer was open the laptop was dropped. The CD drive door - and the connections to the hard drive - broke.

I contacted a friend/relative about the issue and he said that it would cost as much as the computer was worth to repair it. He said that it may continue to boot off and on (and we learned a little trick to help the computer to bypass the CD drive), but eventually it would die.

And it has.

So updating might be slow...I'm using my girlfriend's old Sony Vaio - and while I'm grateful for something, I know a new computer is on the horizon. I'd love to get a MAC this time and not deal with all the spyware and viruses. Anyone have leads on an inexpensive iBook? My birthday is in a week - anyone interested in my Amazon Wish List? (Hey, I'm not shy about putting it out there!)

My Wish List

It's been a sweet, slow time in the land of birth. Two first time moms, due around Christmas and New Year's, await their babies. Our appointment days continue to be full and I'm grateful, so grateful, for such amazing families to journey with.

Life is good. I'm just a bit quiet. Hibernating with the family. Will update more later.
