I have been the the throes of really horrible PPD whilst trying to find a new job to get us out of this godforsaken town. Multiple rounds of gunfire just a couple of blocks from our house on an almost nightly basis are no good for my anxiety, which is already through the roof. I’ve been applying for new jobs since I was on maternity leave, had a bunch of phone interviews, a few second interviews, but still no takers. In the middle of all of this, our 21 year old car died while we were 5 hours away from home attending my BIL’s wedding (which, dear lord, is a story all unto itself).

Anyway, I’m trying to get back in the saddle. Tell me what I’ve missed around here. How is everyone? What’s been going on?

Can you believe this sugar lump is almost 9 months old?
