I wish I could blame my blog silence on being extremely busy, but I think the truth is that I've been pretty lazy about writing. I keep composing blog entries in my head, but when it comes to actually typing them in, I tend to lose focus and start surfing for new blogs to read and get addicted to. One of the problems is that I rarely have long stretches of uninterrupted time, as Bunny naps are getting shorter and shorter and less frequent... It took me two days to compose this post...
On the good news front:
I am very impressed with the power company. Monday night, when BR woke us up for her 2AM feeding, we noticed we had no power. Then we noticed a pikc-up truck idling on our strret in front of our house. Turns out the storm that night had broken a branch of one of our poplars, which most likely did some damage to the power lines, taking out power on the whole street. By 6AM it was all fixed and back to normal. I suspect no one actually called them to report the outage, since it happened in the middle of the night, so I am very impressed with the speed of the detection/diagnosis/fix of the problem. Just a few years ago it would have taken them a few days to get this all sorted out!
Also good news: BR cut her first tooth without too much fuss. She's been fighting a cold all week, which makes her a little less smiley than usual, but she certainly hasn't been complaining much, or crying, or having problems sleeping. I'm thanking my lucky stars. I knew her teeth were going to come early, as she's been drooling profusely for quite a while, and MIL had warned me that all three of her kids got their first tooth at 4 months. Now as long as I can convince her to not chomp down at feeding time, all is good :)
Lastly, I am so glad I decided to give Google reader a try. Combined with high speed internet, it turned the 45 minutes it used to take me to catch up on the blogs I follow into a 5-10 minute update in the morning. Now I keep adding new blogs to follow :)
In other news, we're flying to Poland in less than a week. I'm driving to Montreal with BR, and then we're flying KLM to Schiphol, and on to Warsaw. I am so glad my Mom is coming with us, I don't think I would want to do the trip on my own. I've been slowly packing for weeks, and I'm beginning to feel like I'm almost set. Just a few last minute details to take care of. Which is good, because we have a busy weekend coming up, with not one but two birthday parties to attend, so not much packing or trip planning will be happening then.
