So, usually, when I disappear for multiple days, it's because I'm depressed and don't want to deal with either being honest and sharing it here, or pretending like everything is fine.
This time was different. I didn't post because my computer was disconnected. I might have been struggling with the depression a bit too, but only for less than a day in the middle of it all.
The real culprit of my absence is best explained by this:
Our toilet ripped up the bathroom floor and then jumped into the bathtub to try and hide. But, as you can see, we found it and gave it an extended time out to think about its actions.
Fortunately, it didn't stop this from happening:
Baby B turned 3. I went all out for his train cake last year. Since he wanted a repeat, I went the easy route this year. And he was just as happy. He was actually happy with pretty much everything the whole day. So nice for a child who can find a reason to be unhappy in even the best of circumstances.
So, I'm back. I learned a few things. And life is good.
