Giving it another go.

So I haven't been a very good blogger so far. I think in part its because so much of my life is out there on the internet already, I feel redundant. I post ALOT on a parenting group I belong to and Facebook like a madwoman. Also I feel boring that all I have to write about are funny stories about my kids. Its like when you talk to an old friend who doesn't have kids yet and you talk about your kids for a minute and then they say, "SO what else have you been up to besides the kids?" My mind goes blank and I cant think of anything cool to say at all. I'd love to say, "Oh well I just got back from Africa, bought a really awesome motorcycle, and have tickets to a great show tonight." However I am not Angelina Jolie. My days are about playdough and poop; breastfeeding and playgrounds. I guess I feel a little boring but am trying to be proud of the beautiful life I am creating for me and my girls.
I heard 3 times today that people read my blog so I thought I'd give it another shot. I am going to post every day in March as a challenge to myself. Even if its just a photo or quote of the day.

Here's what's been on my mind lately. Dating. How and when will I go about it???? I really feel ready to move on and share my life with a partner but the timing right now would be ridiculous. Kaliya never leaves me for more than three hours due to the boob factor. Lyric sleeps with me six nights of the week. Then there is the naked dilemma. Getting naked with a new person 7 months after birthing is scary. Mommies are beautiful and glorious and strong but things aren't quite what they used to be. The tummy still looks a bit like someone lives inside it. The boobs are big and round and porn star-like but leak milk if provoked. I think the butt is somewhat wider although still nice and round. Everywhere else (wink) has recovered nicely as far as I can tell. The whole yummy mummy/milf thing drives me nuts. But thats a whole other entry.
Wow so I just realized I started out writing about dating but really wrote about getting laid. Interesting. Perhaps I'm not that lonely but am dreading another trip to Costco for batteries. God I hate that store. Only the nickel sized pieces of free Bagel Bites make it tolerable.
Anyway - I think I'd love some male company and someone to do the boy things around my house but cant see when that will be feasible or even when it is how I'll go about it. Any thoughts???
