I know, I am the worst blogger in the world, and despite it all there are some of you who are still out there who occasionally drop by to see if I'm still here. If I can make any exscuse, its that I've been really busy in the last year. My in-laws moved in with us in July being the main thing that has changed, along with getting busier with work and a very active almost three year old! I still want to catch up with chronicling what has happened in my life since I started this blog in 2006, but I will post some new stuff too as we go along.
Watched the Oscars last night, realized that I am fully in the throes of mommy-hood. The only movie I had seen out of all ten nominated for best picture was Toy Story 3! The only ones I had seen nominated in any other category were kids' movies too! How to Train Your Dragon and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows (well, that one I definitely did not watch with my two year old, but I'm a huge Harry Potter fan and insist on seeing all the movies as soon as they come out!). The only way we got to watch Harry Potter was by going to the drive in and giving Little D a movie to watch on the iPad while we watched HP on the big screen.
Big thing at our house right now is the ICC world cup (one-day Cricket world cup for those of you not following!) I have learned a bit about cricket and the rules, etc. I actually learned most of what I know from watching Lagaan with M and him explaining the rules to me. I'll never love cricket like I do soccer or American football, but it beats out baseball and basketball for me now on the list of sports I will watch on TV. (And creams golf, man, golf is so boring).
So I'll leave you with this image of my favorite Pakistani cricket player:
Also, I am taking the word verification off my blog because it has been brought to my attention that some of you can't post comments with it on. So I hope you all can comment now! I love to get your comments.
