    love the “typing single-handed”- i think this is what i do most of the time! my littlest guy is 6 weeks old and wants to be held all the time- i’m happy to indulge! (although one-handed typing is really time consuming!)

  2. I’ll be saying “hello mom!” She’s been out of town for a few months and we get to pick her up at the airport today.

    Hello to more snow here in Minnesota. Looks like you had a good time at Blissdom, but it sounds like your the kids missed you terribly. Wish I could have gone to see all of the amazing things there and meet you and all the other Blissdom bloggers!

    P.S. I LOVE your “hello Monday” posts, no matter what I am going through, after reading “hello” I feel relieved, like I can tackle everything. It’s so refreshing…please keep it up!!

    ‘hello strep throat” for me! :-( . But then I get to stay home and look at fun websites like yours.
