hi hi. sorry it's been so long. things (time, mostly) got away from me. i knew moving cross country w/ a 7 month old baby was gonna be harder than heck, but it was so much harder than i had even anticipated. even with help from movers, mom, and friends, i've been pretty much completely overwhelmed these past few weeks. i've felt like i was underwater. or at least, buried underneath an ocean of boxes.
pete, poppy and i are *just now* settling in to our new place (in manhattan this go 'round, wow!). we've been living in our new digs 2 weeks today. the whole relocation thing was made that much more challenging by two major baby milestones: the addition of two more chompers in baby p.'s mouth (the top center ones), and some new found motor skills: crawling, and now, pulling up on everything in sight. she's on the move. *sigh*
we're finally getting the last little bits and bobs put away, getting together with friends (& making big dinners), and little p. and i have started to explore our neighborhood. we've made all sorts of cool discoveries and have noted many places nearby we'd like to visit again or check out, including: the wafels & dinges truck, angel street thrift shop (a rather expensive "thrift" store, but one that's actually very well curated), the union square greenmarket (drool, droollll!!)...and the list goes on.
dangerous for me and related to the above: seems i live with short distance of SEVERAL thrift stores. uh-oh, i'm in trouble, people...! :)
anyhow, now that i have sorta-kinda found my bearings again...
...i am going to *try* and resume a semi-regular schedule of posting from here on out. that means: whenever i can, just like before. :)
(hopefully someone's out there and still reading! :P )
