Change is inevitable, except from vending machines.

I haven't updated this blog in awhile. My excuse? We've just spent the last 3 weeks in various stages of sickness, and we are in the final stages of recovery, hopefully. Not only that, but I was busy wrapping up work at my previous job this past Friday. Yesterday, we took Benjamin to the Book People puppet show (lame-o) in the morning, then went to the grand re-opening of Recycled Reads in the afternoon (50 cent picture books!), and then celebrated Vanessa's birthday at the Salt Grass Steakhouse (thanks for the giftcard Mom & Dad!) later that evening. Today was equally busy. This morning, we served with the 4th-6th graders (topic: Mary the Madgalene), went to the Austin Kite Festival in Zilker Park afterwards (Benjamin loved it! Where were you Selena G? We missed you!), then went to the Lord's table meeting this evening, and had dinner with the Nguyens. Tomorrow, I start my new job at Convio. What else? Oh yes, Benjamin turns 3(!) on Wednesday, and we're having a birthday party for him on Saturday. Then my cousin Sharon is flying in town, also on Saturday, to spend her spring break in sunny Austin, not freezing Boston! I think the last time she was in town was for Vanessa and I's wedding, way back in February 2003. Not only that, but for those who didn't know, we've also got another little one due in the middle of June. There will soon be another girl in the family to keep Vanessa company. Yeah! Vanessa is thrilled, to say the least. But she is also suffering through the difficulties of pregnancy. So, while we are by no means the Diller household, life has never been busier for us. Thankfully we still have our keys! (Please reference aforementioned blog for the meaning of that last sentence).

So, as you can clearly see, the times they are a changing. Hopefully I'll be able to keep up with the pace.  Thus, you'll have to forgive me if this blog's update become less and less frequent. But at least you'll understand why. :)
