pictures of my children being beautiful

So.  Hi there.  It's been so long since I posted that I can't remember how to properly upload a picture.  It took me about 20 minutes to make this picture appear on the damn blog and now I can't even remember why it seemed like such a great picture anyway.

I am so very happy that the summer is over.  It was not wonderful.  The details are best glossed over, unless you really like hearing about dead pets, diseased gallbladders, a baby who didn't gain weight for three months, a baby with an antibiotic resistant ear infection, and the fact that my husband and I were seemingly in a contest to see who could be in the world's crappiest mood.  I've been very busy alternating between feeling sorry for myself and feeling sorry for my kids for having such a basket case for a mother.  It's been a laugh riot over here.
This baby does not eat.

But things seem to be improving.  The three year old is in school two mornings a week.  My gallbladder has stopped actively trying to murder me, and if that means I can never eat dairy, nuts, or eggs again for the rest of my life I can happily make that sacrifice.  We're getting to the bottom of the babies' health issues.  We planted some trees.  I've been making lots of pie.  I no longer feel like the house was built over a hell mouth.
This baby does not sleep.

I'm doing NaBloWriMo again this year.  See, I have three months of unblogged projects that I can totally milk for 31 days of posts!  Maybe I'll even contemplate writing a tutorial.

Yay! I get to read posts from you for a month!

Also, your photo captions are the best, and hellmouth references take the cake.
