Does anyone else feel like this week was llooonnnggg? I started it off sick, so that didn’t help. And then Drew got sick and took Tuesday off from work which was, maybe, the second or third time he’s ever done that since I met him. And let me tell you, taking care of a baby and a sick husband while you’re still kinda sick yourself? Oy vey! Luckily, little Jack seemed to avoid catching whatever it was we two grownups had. I thought he was getting sick there for a bit, but it turns out he was just extra spit-uppy that day and that’s it. Thank God.
Hey, have I mentioned a hundred times yet that this month marks the one-year anniversary since the launch of this site? Yep. January 24th is its official birthday, which may even be the anniversary of Jackson’s conception, not that anyone really needs or wants to think about that, but whatever; I think it’s kind of a cool coincidence. Both of my babies created the same day/week. I’ve been working on a couple of things behind the scenes to mark the occasion and I’m pretty sure you’ll be excited about them. At least I hope so. And I hope they’re ready soon.
Anyway, I don’t really have a topic for this weekend’s open thread. Maybe, since it’s Friday the 13th, you’d like to discuss superstitions? Do you have any? I don’t like stepping on sidewalk lines. Remember that childhood chant: “Step on a crack, break your mama’s back; step on a line, break your daddy’s spine”? Well, I guess it stayed with me because I still avoid cracks and lines to this day lest something bad happen to someone I love. What are your weird superstitions?
