I truly try to post everyday, and most of the time I’m pretty damn consistent, but sometimes the day-to-day demands of being a full-time mom, wife, actor and human being seem to get the best of me.  I’ll admit it—I checked out of the blogosphere. Here’s some of what I’ve been up to…

some interesting auditions

some interesting diaper changes (we’re eating butternut squash! peas! rice!)

leaning on my friends & being there for them in some trying times

developing an intriguing new website & planning new posts for MOVE and HelloGiggles

plotting overly elaborate celebrations for Thanksgiving and Christmas

attempting to finagle at least one workout into my week

reluctantly watching a plumber tear a hole in my bathroom wall to search for a leak

waking up to feed/change/cuddle a baby three times a night (should we start sleep training soon, hmmmm?)

foolishly thinking I’ll have time to sew my own stockings for the holidays

developing a line of reworked vintage furniture with a friend

dealing with a mysterious flat tire

dealing with a malfunctioning computer

gleefully planning a trip to Portland to visit my sister and new brother-in-law

helping five of my friends decorate their apartments

playing with my super-active little baby and teaching him about the world

talking about scripts with my husband

watching season 6 of ‘The Shield’

trying to eradicate an invasion of moths from my pantry

spending time with my best friend Grant who was finally visiting from England!baby-proofing my house

lamenting my lack of time to paint

begging the refrigerator-repair-man to return for a sixth attempt to convince my fridge that yes, it is supposed to make ice

wading through a maze of baby-making/home-buying paper work from the last year

fruitlessly searching for an affordable danish-modern credenza and then changing my mind and now fruitlessly searching for an affordable reclaimed-wood credenza

making too many trips to Coffee Bean and Starbucks…

and of course dishes, laundry, groceries, sweeping, finding lost socks and the endless parade of domestic tasks that we tackle on an everyday basis.  Let me tell you, I have a newfound respect for stay-at-home moms and dads.  I don’t know how you all do it.Serious love to you all (and new posts are on their way)...
