Apologies, Internets. I've been busy. I'm taking a graduate level class that is so far way above my head. It's a math class. I know, what was I thinking? It's a required course in the master's in public health program so if I decide to pursue a master's, I've got to take it. Plus, it related to my job so I'm actually leaning a lot and putting into context some things I've picked up along the way. I just hate having to take tests and quizzes again. After my sophomore year in college, I successfully managed to only take classes with papers so 20 years later, it's a challenge. Sigh.

I've also gone back to work full-time for the first time since Andy was born. Granted, 40+ hours a week from home isn't quite the same as a full-time job in an office where I have to give up 10 hours a week to a commute and actually getting out of my shorts, but still. More responsibility, more stress.

Plus, when that new People magazine comes in with Toddlers and Tiaras on the cover, I have to read it immediately. It's not like it's going to read itself, folks.

I also have a new blog that's distracting me - Check it out. You will cry with laughter.

I love soccer. I always have. I still play it now and love the friends I've made playing as a kid and adult. 
But Andy? Not so much. This is his fourth season playing and his first season playing with real goalies.  I keep hoping he will love it like I did, but right now he's just not that into it. He always whines and cries before most games and practices. He's happy after he's done, but leading up is torture for me. And let's not forget, it's all about me.

But see how cute and athletic he looks all in uniform?

See? He's running!
I have this framed now. I love how grown up he looks here. And that it looks like he's trying to stifle a laugh.
Look at those vampire teeth?
