Hullo There...

It's been a while, yeah? I think it's been about seven months; and there has been a change or two around Chaos. Mostly the kinds of changes that come with the girls getting older, but one or two changes in me.

First: through Weight Watchers, serious workouts and running I lost 52 pounds since last September. This is great, and probably helped me achieve the second change, which is....

Second: I am pregnant. Solidly in the first trimester, and baby, much as I wanted this, being pregnant sucks every bit as much as remember it sucking. ie: lots and sucking buckets of suckitude.

Third: We are actively finishing the basement now. Seriously... we have been pecking away at this project for over two years now, and we are finally prepared to go for broke (literally) and DO THIS THING! So for all you who are interested in this sort of thing... there will be pix.

And of course pictures of Chaos.

So... much as I wanted to write up a great and comprehensive post as my Grande Bloggy Re-opening, this'n will have to do the jobby.

It's good to be back.
