What Have I Missed...?

It has been more than 6 months since I last wrote something on this blog. I've had some good intentions, but for some reason or another I haven't sat down and actually typed out anything. It's been too long, at least in my opinion. You might have a differing opinion, but nobody asked you. :)

Let's see, since the last time I wrote, some things have happened around here...everybody in our house has gotten exactly the same number of days older. I am not smart enough to know if that's just a coincidence or not... The Baby is now closer to 2 than to 1, and she can climb pretty much anything you put in front of her, even if it's not supposed to be "climbable". She also is starting to speak a little English, which is good because that's the language the rest of us in the house speak. If she starts to speak German or some other crazy language, it will make me wonder what's going on... When you think about it, though, me wondering what's going on is not that big of a deal, since I often wonder what's going on in life, even when I am supposed to know what's going on. If you didn't follow that last sentence, ask my Wife. That's what I always do...

Since the last time I wrote, everyone in our house, other than the Baby, has had a birthday. I think it is safe to say that we all got exactly what we wanted for our birthdays, however I also got about 15,000 more gray hairs/whiskers. The Wife keeps telling me I am starting to look sophisticated. Makes me wonder what she thought I looked like before all the gray hairs arrived... Maybe I don't want to know...

Not only did 5 out of the 6 of us humans in our house have birthdays, this very blog had a birthday. Yes, Chaotic Kids & Clutter turned 5 years old on May 12th. Nobody threw the blog a party, and in fact the blog's creator, Me, didn't realize it had turned 5 until a couple of days ago. Back in the day I would have made a big deal about it, but now I haven't been blogging as much, so it slipped by without notice. The best I can do now is put some random party picture up and vow to do better next year. We'll see how it goes.
