BAIDS is Bird AIDS.  I don't remember exactly how that came about over the weekend, but it did.  Gena was visiting.

Why don't I blog anymore?

A couple of reasons, probably.  I'm much busier than I used to be, and my brain is full of stuff that pushes away random blog-type thoughts.  Thoughts about things like BAIDS or boogermouth disease or whatnot.  I still have those thoughts, but not nearly as often as I used to.  And then when I do have them, I don't have time to write about them until like a week after I have them, and then either I've forgotten about them or I've forgotten about why they were funny at the time.  Bird AIDS seemed funny at the time but now it doesn't.

I also don't blog as much anymore because a big part of my life consists of making sure that my kids aren't crying, and I don't want to blog about my fucking kids.  There are enough kid blogs out there.  I love my kids and I want to write about the things they do and say so that I can remember all of this stuff one day when my actual memory stops working, but I do not want there to be another blog about kids in the world.

Last reason is that I really don't have much shit to work through or work out right now.  Life and work are rolling along relatively cohesively, I feel like things are happening in an acceptable manner, and I don't really have much to say about it one way or the other.



We're kicking around the option of Jeannie staying at home at some point in the future.  Not sure we could make it work financially, but we're both pretty interested in trying it.  We both have felt pretty balanced since she's been home following Anna's birth.  We'll see.  Might happen, might not.

Here's a picture in which I look as old as I've ever looked (with the exception of when I played the Stage Manager in Our Town and looked like Kenny Rogers):

Samuel is looking old in this one, too.  Not as old as me, but like a little person rather than a baby or a toddler.

I have since given myself a haircut and beard trim and look much younger again.
