So much for nice even numbers…

I started the previous entry at 11:30pm on June 20th with plans to post it after midnight, so the posting date would be June 21st, exactly 17 months from my first post. Somehow, in the middle of everything, I got my dates mixed up. I thought my first post had been posted on January 20th, so then I hurried to post to maintain the exact timing.

Oh well, what better way is there to shake off old habits?

Take 2

It's been 17 months since I started this blog and almost 17 months since I last posted. I think it's time to take a deep breath and try again. I've "written" many an entry in my head over the last year and a half...I just haven't had time to actually sit down and write (er...type) them.

I'm tempted to say that it's all same old, same old around here, but that wouldn't be the truth. We moved. I had a baby. Said baby is now a year old. Things have changed and yet they are the same. Such is life.

I've always been one to try to reinvent myself. The structure of school always gave me two opportunities each year: the beginning of the school year and the beginning of the calendar year. For some reason, I've always liked things to be exact. I couldn't resolve to start over or try something new somewhere in the middle, e.g., in June. It just doesn't work that way. When I sat down to write this, I had "18 months" written in the first line. A nice even number. A good place to start over. And then I thought about it. It's not 18's 17 months. That's not a nice even number. What to do? I will post today anyway.

So here we are...take 2.
