Well, we finally got hooked up to the internet and cable. Only 5 weeks after we moved in. So now, Chris and I are in separate rooms watching separate shows and playing around on the computer (we borrowed a laptop from Dad). Ahh, married life.
So, over the "lack of technology" break, Logan turned 2. I can't believe he is 2 years old. He's so big now. He is talking like crazy and he understands everything (or seems to). He goes for his 2 year checkup next week. I am anxious to see how he is doing. I did notice the other day that he does seem to favor his left hand. I am not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing. I don't have any experience with left-handedness. Chris is excited for sporting reasons. We'll see if it sticks. He still goes back and forth a little bit when he is coloring and eating.
I am also considering starting to potty-train him this summer. I know he'll just barely be 2, but I figure if I am going to be off work for the whole summer, I may as well attempt it. I'm not going to push it, though. Any suggestions would be great.
Speaking of the summer break, I CANNOT wait until school is out. This year has been difficult, to say the least. It's really hard when you don't feel like you give 100% in any aspect of your life. When I am at work, I know I am not giving my best effort because I would rather be home with Logan. And when I am home, work is always in the back of my mind because I know I have to go back the next day. So, they handed out our contracts a few weeks ago and I put mine in my desk, determined to come up with some way to not have to sign it. Well, I have less than a week before it is due and I haven't come up with any ideas. The secretary asked me about it and I told her I just got busy and that it was "wishful thinking." She understood but I am really struggling with this. I don't look forward to or really enjoy work and then when I get home I am too tired to play with Logan the way he deserves. It's not fair to him or the kids I work with. It just depresses me to think about it.
On the upside, we're trying to figure out our family summer vacation plans. We discussed Arkansas last year b/c it's reasonably close (meaning we don't have to fly b/c Logan is no longer free) and very scenic. Heather has found several places to stay, we just have to narrow down a week that everyone will be available. I am excited that we are able to take Logan on family vacations. I remember going as a kid, even if it was just camping or something, and it was so much fun. Arkansas will be fun. Logan loves the outdoors so it's right up his alley. The car ride up there? Maybe not so much...but if he has his beloved Uncle "Wyan" to entertain him, he should be good. Just remind Heather and I to ride in the other car.
