I am usually very proud of the fact that I have been able to maintain this blog for over three years, never going an entire month without posting. But faithful readers will have probably realized that I completely missed July this year! Well, that is unacceptable to me, so I am going to do a bit of cheating. But it's not really cheating. I actually did write some posts in July, I just wasn't ready to publish them yet. So I will be publishing over the next couple days and pre-dating them for when they were actually written (mostly in July). I hope you will agree with me that this isn't actually cheating. If you are not yet convinced, here is another reason. I had extenuating circumstances because... we are having a baby! And I just wasn't ready to share that with the general public until now, but my thoughts (and my posts) have been on that general subject. So, without further ado, I will go ahead and publish my July posts. And if you're not interested in baby stuff or the (possibly ridiculous) wonderings of an expectant mother, I would advise you to just "Mark as Read" and move on.
