My posts are pretty scattered these days, but then, so is my brain. Stands to reason that I'm all over the place, I suppose.

Can anyone tell me why Boo insists on putting every. fucking. thing. she finds into her mouth? Play-Doh? In. Dust bunnies? In. Cat poop out of the cat box? In. It is really disgusting, not to mention potentially harmful. Cat poop? Ewwwww. How do I get her to stop? The second my back is turned, she's eating the crayon/play-doh/dust bunny/cat poop. I can't keep my eye on her all the time.

The Bug is crawling. Really crawling, not just scooting herself around. She's so tiny - only 15 lbs - that it looks funny. She's also only 6.5 months old. I'm a dead woman.

I had an interview with an agency yesterday. Hopefully they can find me something good. Hopefully I can find some in-home day care - I'm having no luck at all. I can't find anyone with infant slots and all the centers I've called want $400 a week for two children. That's steep.

O and I are going to NYC at the end of March, to meet up with some OC people. It's only for two days, which doesn't give us much time to do anything, but I plan on making a pilgrimage to Murray's Cheese Shop. We're also going to the Natural History Museum, Central Park (if the weather is good) and Times Square. I don't want to do the Empire State Building - it takes forever and I've done it a few times already - or Statue of Liberty, but if anyone has any suggestions for things to do in NY, I'd appreciate them. There will probably be a bunch of us - 8 or 10 people, at least, and there will be some children along. So as much as I'd love to wander thru the Met for the day, that's definitely not on the cards on this trip.

We're going to eat at a place called Tony's DiNapoli, which I've never heard of, but the prices look decent and it's probably pretty family-friendly. Again, any other suggestions are welcome. Everyone is on a budget, so no Daniel this time.

But there WILL be cheese. Oh, how there will be cheese.

Hey, it's Pancake Tuesday today. What kind of pancakes are you having? We're doing blueberry. Mmmmm. Blueberry pancakes.

The best kept secret in NYC is Becco, in the theatre district, a blok or two off the Marriott Marquis. Get the pasta special regardless what it is. Even the wine list is reasonably priced (not just "reasonably priced...for New York") and you can just go by-the-glass.

I am so jealous about your NY trip! Meeting other Ds. Yeah, Bug is gonna be a handful! I have known dogs to eat poop, my daughter's did this, but not my kids! Poor you. YUCK!

Whoa, pancakes?? I need to get on board with that. Consider my pump primed for excess carbs.

And cat poop?? That make me laugh and cringe simultaneously.

Oh, ladies, you'll have to wait until next year. Pancake Tuesday is the day before Ash Wednesday, and while I'm not a practising anything, I'm all about the pancakes.

There's always next year....
