AUTHOR: Marty, a.k.a. canape TITLE: It's been a long time since my last confession DATE: 11/30/2007 09:56:00 AM ----- BODY:
I have a been a bad blogger. I have not been reading and commenting like I normally would. My apologies are probably empty, but I'm offering them anyway. I try to keep up. It's just so busy. I'm sure you all understand, and you are shaking your heads because here you are reading my little words . . . I'll catch up, I swear.

Speaking of behind, there are lots of links to go up on the Team Whymommy page. I have been slack. Susan has done such a good job of keeping them linked up on her blog, and once again, I am the slack friend. Let's just say that I have chosen to offer her some consistency in her life. I'm still here, and I'm still flaky.

And as if I haven't laid enough of my current flaws out on the table, here's something else stupid I did.

I was getting into our incredibly tall bed last night (with the humph and splat method I learned from Paige), and I actually injured myself on a pillow. Yes. I cut my elbow wide open on my pillow. Blood, bandaids, and everything.

Apparently, the pillow has a lethal zipper on it. I unwittingly put my elbow on the zipper, hoisted my 190 pound self (grow baby grow) onto the bed, and tore open my elbow. I am a talented, talented woman.

Hope it's better today. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Space Mom DATE:Friday, November 30, 2007 at 2:01:00 PM EST I am sorry to hear about the elbow, but it did make me laugh! ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Jennifer, Playgroups Are No Place For Children DATE:Friday, November 30, 2007 at 2:44:00 PM EST You know, I always feel the need to apologize when I actually have a life outside of the blogging world. Both of us should just stop that nonsense! We're allowed to do things besides sit at the computer.

As for your elbow...ouch! ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Stimey DATE:Friday, November 30, 2007 at 6:31:00 PM EST That's a great story. A bloody injury from a pillow. Classic. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Kathy's Surprise Party DATE:Friday, November 30, 2007 at 7:45:00 PM EST I have been the same bad blogger. Too busy!!

You are so forgiven.anks for the

Thanks for the warning on the zipper. Who knew? Feel better! ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous FENICLE DATE:Friday, November 30, 2007 at 10:52:00 PM EST OUCH!!! Not good! But kinda funny in that I got hurt by a pillow way :) ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous whymommy DATE:Saturday, December 1, 2007 at 6:36:00 AM EST So ... you're telling us you fell behind in THREE ways?

Ahem. Excuse that. I remember what it was like to be a zillion pounds of unbalanced baby body. Delightful ... unless you actually wanted to sleep or something.

Go ahead and cut yourself some slack -- you'll need it when Little Bird arrives! Tweet tweet! ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Paige Jennifer DATE:Saturday, December 1, 2007 at 8:47:00 AM EST Of course you'd perfect my method of mounting a too-tall-bed. Blood? I never would have thought to draw blood after the splat! ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Bubblewench DATE:Monday, December 3, 2007 at 7:23:00 AM EST I don't MEAN to laugh, but a zipper!!?? Glad you are ok though! And I think we all know what it's like to not have all the time in the world to deal with blog land... I'm pretty sure it's called having a life off of the internet. And oh yeah, you're a little busy growing a baby too! ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Heather, Queen of Shake Shake DATE:Tuesday, December 4, 2007 at 5:47:00 PM EST No need to apologize about not reading or commenting. I give you permission to have a life, so there!

December is a ca-razy month all around. Totally understand.

Hope the elbow feels better soon!
