I feel like I should check in here even though I’ve enjoyed this nice long break so much! Christmas was lovely and, quite wonderfully, uneventful. Over the holiday I got sucked into Scandal. Are you watching that? If you liked Damages, have ever dreamed of secretly making love to the president in the oval office, have ever dreamed of being a high powered somebody in DC or maybe think that John Stewart is a little bit cute then this show is for you. I’m all caught up now and ready for it to start again in January and Downton, don’t forget Downton. The new year promises to bring great things (to my tv).
Bennett is growing at an alarming rate. You go to sleep one night with a baby who is happy to sit up and play with whatever you give her to waking up with a baby who, instead of sitting in one place, launches herself kamikaze style toward anything she things looks interesting. This almost always results in tears because, well, falling on your face constantly is alarming but practice makes perfect. I can only remember crawling and not crawling. I don’t remember any of this other intermediate business. She’s always trying to get her hands on something. Usually something dangerous that’s jutting out from somewhere just over your shoulder where she’s looking but that you can’t see. It’s more of a whirlwind than usual these days trying to stay two steps ahead and she’s not even crawling yet.
