When you can't find your blog

It's true.  I couldn't find my little blog!  How very sad!  My computer got a big re-wash because "it was making too much noise" and going "sooo slow" (according to computer dr. hubby).  Because of these life-threatening ailments, the whole computer was wiped clean and reborn.  And as I tried to remember what my blog was called - it has been a couple months you know--my computer had no memory of the address either!  I am completely dependent on my computer's brain more than my own.  Thankfully I was able to google "the most happenin' blog of 2011", and my blog showed up first on the list. We're now starting fresh again, just like the season now upon us.  

Here is what has happened the last few months:  
Home improvements.  We had a window seat put in our kitchen for more seats and more space. We can now fit about 10 kids around the table...wahoo!

minor irritations upon youngest child:
Dylan has had a rough go of things here in 2011.  He has had an ear infection going on about 3 months now that antibiotics just don't treat!  It retreats, only to come back and give us all pain.  To add to that already constant pain in his life, he grabbed my curling iron, held on to it longer than instincts would tell you, and as a consequence had to have his hand wrapped for 3 weeks because of a burn on four of his fingers.  The poor kid!  Not to mention the guilt I felt.  But I paid for my sin by having to wrap his hand sometimes 4 times a day (with 2 layers!  and ointment!) because the darn thing kept coming off his squirmy and curious little hands.  Not easy, I tell you.  Not easy a'tall.  

Loo successes:
This is a bonus picture of Sam for cousin Sydney.  Well, I guess Sam should make the blog anyway because of his toilet skills he's recently acquired.  We also now have about 20 more hot wheels cars as a result of his new inclinations, including an ice cream truck and the less popular daycare bus.  

Oh, Dyls.  How cute is a little almost 1-year old who wants to climb into the dishwasher?  

Next post I'll throw some pictures of the rest of us in the family. We've got a week of Spring Break now- weather looks awesome for it- so I'll have to take some pictures of us doing some crafts and making a snowman, maybe even sipping some hot cocoa.  Anyone have any fun suggestions for some inside fun?

You know you'd remember your blog title if it was really the most happenin' allhetup.
Were you standing on your counter to take the picture of your window seat? I hope you had clean socks on!
Can't Laura give you some oils for Dyls ears?? Huh, Laura, can you?

Jen said...

Oh Erin! I am so sorry for your little guy and the burn to his hand. Something like that happened to us once also. It was with Caitlyn and a iron I left on and unattended. She burned the whole inside of her hand and fingers too. I understand your guilt. Augh. It's terrible. Hope he is doing better now.
Love your new bench seat!

Did you use pickle juice? Burns are the worst. I totally understand forgetting the address of your blog when it is something other than the title. Knowing your own cell phone number is another thing that you just don't know automatically. I hope the ear infection clears up and he doesn't need his tonsils out.

I'm thinking butcher paper draped on the wall and letting the kids go loose with paint sounds nice!! seriously... what is wrong with our weather?! I'm glad you updated on all your recent happenings... poor dylan. :( Although, he is looking like a pretty tough sport in that picture!

Melissa Rees said...

Oh poor baby! That burn cannot be fun. Those darn kids get into anything! And what's with the dishwasher? Evan is obsessed with it! I swear he can hear it open from a mile away!

Ah, I was finally going to wipe my computer clean and give Russell his hard drive back -- and then I realized that all of the disks I need to reinstall everything are missing. Argh. I'm glad you found your blog so you could update it. You could have just gone to mine (you've got that memorized right?) and gotten to yours from there.

spring break should have wonderful weather... we'd invite you down for a rocking time except

#1 - our spring break was weeks ago (and freezing)

#2 - ummm - yeah, our weather isn't exactly gorgeous right now... but rain is better than snow, right???

Maria said...

Ouchie, poor guy! I know how you feel about losing your blog. I created a new one so my private one would update and I completely forgot the email address associated with it! And of course I didn't write it down, because that would have been too easy. Glad everything is going well!

Glad you're back on the most happenin' blog.
The new bench seat is totally awesome. You'll have to break it in with a neighborhood cookie decorating party.
What's up with Dyl? Okay, Megz, twisted my arm...garlic drops my sister swears by (health food store) I've also heard hydrogen peroxide but check out for specific instructions. That's my favorite home rememdy website. That antibiotic cycle can be vicious.
