When I first started this blog I wanted to keep my kids anonymous so their lives wouldn’t be easily googled at some later date. Well, that didn’t work because the nuisance of having separate handles, login credentials, etc. proved to be a barrier to frequent posting. I’ve also decided that I didn’t like maintaining multiple identities, even though I wasn’t doing so for fraudulent purposes.
So, I’ve reintegrated myself and moved this blog to my hosted domain. You can now find me here.
Yeah, so it’s been a week since I posted Wordless Wednesday photos. Deal.
Life’s been busy and hectic. I’ve been too busy actually doing work at work to blog. In fact, that’s one of the biggest changes I haven’t blogged about. I’m working away from home again. My boss wanted me closer and more accessible. He also wanted 100% of my attention. So, for June and July, Red was alternating between being watched at a neighbor’s house with their son and being watched at our house by himself. The sitter for both can be seen in last week’s photos. Today is Red’s second day at group day care.
I miss seeing him all day, but I don’t miss the tantrums and other unpleasant distractions. I think I’d still put up with them, though, if given the choice.

Sometimes you want to go where nobody knows your name.
Wait – wha…?
The #FollowFriday phenomenon on Twitter doesn’t do much for much. I think the main reason is that most tweeps (twits?) just post as many handles fit in 140 characters. I’d like to know why you follow someone so that I can get an idea of why I might want to follow him/her.
As a complementary (or contrary) concept, I propose “follow wishlists”. Periodically or as desired we could each write a blog post briefly describing the kinds of folks we’d like to follow or tweets we’d like to read. Allow me to lead my example.
Hey folks, just an FYI.
Some of you might notice me following you on Twitter using two different accounts. Before that weirded anyone out, I wanted to explain why.
