Happy New Year, everyone! I hope it's a happy, healthy and prosperous year for all.

Hey oyinmama! You've reminded me that I absolutely need some more Greg Juice. It's been way too long since I had some.

Congrats, boobmommi! Time to change your sig.

School starts again today. Break was at once too long and too short. Funny how that works.

Welcome Halfasianmomma. It's perfectly okay with us that you are "only half colourful"!:

Wonderful idea to start a new thread, Rhynna!

I've got pictures on Facebook; I lean toward the pale myself. I just can't wrap my head around a 'white' identity though, so colorful I am. Welcome.

It was marie's idea, actually; I just happened to be awake after midnight. (So what else is new? )

HAPPY NEW YEAR, everyone!

I haven't posted in a really long time (but I have been lurking), so I just wanted to say howdy!

heh - i am indeed. oyin means 'honey' and it's my online tradition to be 'honeychild' in forums, but that handle was already taken when i was registering here. i tried a couple of permutations and this was the first one that worked. it wasn't until after the fact that i realized i'd be 'outing' myself like that

thanks for the welcome, ladies! you know, there is always a discount code at the end of the latest podcast, which is good until the next podcast is posted. they're usually between 5 and 10%; the current one (podcast5holiday) is for 8% off. i know it's not the holidays anymore, but we're late recording our new year episode!

speaking of which, how was everybody's holiday? i know fronuff and boobmommi welcomed their new little ones - congratulations!! we just [endured] enjoyed a steady parade of houseguests and are thrilled to have survived. for two people who self-identify as utter hermits and had planned to videochat our way into far-flung family gatherings in between cuddling up and roasting chestnuts all alone, it was quite a stretch!

in other news, we're super excited abt the babe - the belly is on swole and he's kicking up a storm. we're about to join our local Y so i can swim for exercise... normally we take a 2 mile walk 2 or 3 times a week, but since it's gotten cold we've totally fallen off. i can feel myself becoming less fit than i was a couple of months ago and that scares me... i think part of me feels like i have to prepare for birth like i'm preparing for a marathon!

I'm irritated by the holidays. This year, for a change, it has nothing to do ith the inlaws.

We don't celebrate the holidays, which lends to a VERY peaceful season.... I certainly enjoyed the time off, though.

Welcome NishaG. It's always nice to have new members

My holidays were awesome, if not a little exhausting. I recently moved into a new home so my abode was the designated place to do everything. I enjoyed every moment, got lots of help, but it just plain wore me out.
I love it but purchasing an older home comes with many travails and can cost lots of money trying to update it. We had the entire downstairs painted because frankly, it was butt ugly. We have at least put our flair on the lower level, but it will take a lot of time to get the upstairs in order. I still have boxes of crap that I need to sort through

My best to all of you.

I miss Ericka. I hope she'll check in soon!!

Our holiday was good. We decided not to anywhere so that made things very peaceful. I have nothing new going on, nothing exciting I feel so dull compared to the rest of you. Other than battling a cold. If I'm the one that's sick why is he the one sleeping in?
