Return of the Jedi, uh, I mean, GeekWriterMom

This post has nothing to do with pirate kitties, but my head has been fuzzy with travel hang-over. I've got so much to do, it's nice to take a moment to breathe and giggle over an lolcat.

Hello! I'm back from my visit with my family. It was great to see everyone, but it's rough traveling with a toddler who hates to travel. Every hour, he asked to go home. Poor little guy. We learned he talks in his sleep and can climb out of his playpen. He slept very well - we all did - when we got home.

I've lots of catching up to do. Welcome to my new followers and thank you to everyone who left such awesome comments. I'm so happy you're loving the story. The A to Z Challenge has been incredible!

My first rejection of the year was waiting for me when I got home. Ah well. I'll try the story elsewhere. I have to write something for April yet too. Oh boy.

My son turns two this coming Friday. I need to prepare for his party. We're barbecuing and having a decorate your own cupcake and sundae dessert bar. Good times!

With his turning two, I've been busy making his annual photo book on Shutterfly. I want to do one for him every year throughout his childhood. It's so much fun to create books on that site.

Okay. Time to visit some of your blogs!

  1. I have a two year old son too that we took to DIsney World in the Fall. It was fun, but it was more restful to be home. I've never tried Shutterfly, I'll have to check it out. Enjoy your party.

    1. It's definitely more restful to be at home. Plus, my son hates to be away from home for any time longer than an afternoon. Hopefully he'll change as he grows older or life will be difficult with all our family living far away.

  2. Hopefully he appreciates the books when he's older. I'm sure his wife will get a kick out of them!

    1. Thank you. I'll try the place again. I have to think of a good sci-fi story to write for it. I already submitted the rejected story somewhere else.

  10. New follower. I was lured by your Jedi reference and that dang cute pirate kitty. Happy 2nd birthday to your little one. BTW - The terrible twos are a myth - it's the terrible 3 1/2s you need to watch out for.

    1. Hello and welcome! I always love connecting with other geek moms. :) The two's have started a little rough so far, but it could only be we went on a big trip and the boy hates to travel. I've heard the same thing about three's. Makes me worried!
