OK, so I think I have this new blog thing set up and rolling properly. Look around for me when you get a spare moment and let me know if anything looks crazy or doesn't make sense. I'll be adding content to the review site soon (JC Penney review due, um, tomorrow) and then starting to get back to regular posting.
I don't know how to even start talking about BlogHer. It was... huge. And wonderful and crazy and all the things you would expect when 1000 bloggers get together in a big city. In fact, I was trying to explain it to the very blue collar construction dude I sat down next to on the plane home and it was a study in contrast, indeed. He had no idea what a blog even was and was floored that some of us make money doing it. In fact, my whole conversation with him was eye opening as to how the rest of the world (i.e. non tech obsessed) thinks. He seriously didn't understand why anyone would care what my kids said yesterday. The really funny part was when he started telling me about his own four-year-old son and his stories were exactly what we all blog about. He was great.
Anyway, the girls and I are getting settled back into each other. Anya spent the whole evening draped over me, holding on to me as tightly as she could manage. Lily even tackled me with some love and then went off to see what her dad was doing. It's lovely to be so loved.
I have a busy week ahead of me and have to digest some family news that makes me feel sick inside. More on that later. For now I need to go play with my kids. My beautiful, stunning, funny kids.
