There came a time

There comes a time when the lights are dimming, the shop is closing up and everyone loses interest in the scene. A shop owner knows when he's bleeding money and losing customers. That is when it's time to put up the CLOSED sign permanently.

Here's the time, my friends, when Eucalyptus Pillow has completed its job. It started a couple years ago as an outlet for me about my kids, about nursing, about my job, about home life, etc. Now there's more I need to write about. More than just about the kids. It's about evolving into someone else right now, discovering more about what I can offer to the world. So, this blog has outlived its purpose that way.

From now on, you can find me here. I hope you'll follow me.

Happy Mother's Day

Because I just don't know what else to say about my complicated, messy, loving, codependent relationship I have with my own mother, I had to post this video instead. A friend shared with us, and I'm passing it on. It's hilarious!

Happy Mother's Day to all my blogging mamas! May everyone do whatever the hell they want today.

Summer breeze, makes me feel fine

I'm sitting here typing away at the computer and simultaneously staring out at another gray, gloomy day. When the hell is it going to be nice outside? I'm sick of long sleeves and long pants, slickers and raincoats, umbrellas and running through raindrops. I've just about worn out all indoor play options for Andrew and he is starting to talk to the wall. Or worse, incessantly saying "mama" over and over again. And is beginning to get this weird tick on the side of his face.

Anyway, my point is, I need a day in the backyard! I need a long, hot day in the garden while the kids are running through the sprinkler and getting their hands dirty in the sandbox. I need a tan. A day at the park. A day at the pool. I love summer. It's my most favorite season. I'm so ready. So bring it on already.

So now that I've gotten that out of my system, I must congratulate the winner of the Rick Springfield CD giveaway contest! I had a totally official, drawing of the names ceremony with Andrew, and he drew the name: Heather! Heather, congratulations on winning the CD. You will receive it in the mail. Hope your little one will enjoy the new tunes.
