Shamed Out of the Shadows

I've written about balance many times, because the biggest lesson I have learned as a parent is that balance is a bit like a unicorn, winning lotto numbers, and Jami Gertz, intensely desirable but elusive to the point that you're not really sure it even exists. I had thought that I was approaching something that might have looked like balance, had the same sort of smooth corners and even weight, but as soon as I got to the point where I was considering claiming victory over my schedule, work came and clobbered me with some details I predicted, but somehow wasn't anticipating.

Is that vague enough? I mean, aside from my Jami Gertz reference? I'll be a little more obvious... I work for a non-profit and we have a big fund raising breakfast coming up. Of course I wouldn't have time for blogging. We're on the downward slope, however, so things should be returning to normal for me very soon.

Have I brought any lessons from my unexpected hiatus, any new bits of shiny, packaged wisdom that I can distribute like candy at Halloween? Gosh, wouldn't that be nice? Nope. I'm sorry, but as I get back up to speed, it'll just be more of the same. Wisdom is for people with better taglines and wit.

Expect more soon! And, Lainey-Paney, p-man, and Sarah O, thank you for shaming me back into posting. If the next post is nothing but fart jokes and talk about Xbox, remember, you brought this on yourselves.

Glad to see you back, however brief...Good luck with the breakfast!

Sarah O. said...

Thanks for letting us know what's going on. I for one am glad nothing's gone terribly wrong or something.

A side note: I have a friend who lives in Beverly Hills. One of her fellow soccer moms is Jamie Gertz.

Extra side note: My BH friend has made me extremely jealous by telling me how she hangs out with a soccer dad, the cute bassist from Duran Duran. And how a frequent opposing team's soccer mom is Courtney Love.

I knew you were working. Call me psychic, but whenever a blogger goes away, I always know it is a bread and butter on the table thing.

Gotta buy the baby new shoes.

1. Welcome back.
2. I cannot believe you just made a Jamie Gertz reference. There's a name I hadn't thought of in YEARS!
3. That's it: I am moving to Beverly Hills.

Denver Dad said...

Thanks so much for the welcome back, everyone! I'm not sure I deserve it, but I'll do what I can to live up to your kindness... oh, who am I kidding? I'll just continue to be more of my nasty, usual self... only with more capers!

No... I don't know what that means either.

Sarah, when you move to Colorado, promise me you'll bring Jami with you!

What's wrong with making a Jami Gertz reference, Lainey-paney? She's awesome!

Lainey-Paney said...

Oh, there's nothing wrong with it.
It's just---random.
That's all.
Like I wrote---a name I had not thought of in YEARS!

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
