So, my journal layout is the one I spent a gazillion hours on right before season SIX of Bones premiered, it still says "spoiler free" which is not true anymore, my paid account is expired so my userpics aren't working, I no longer HAVE the hundreds of ah-ma-zing userpics I had saved to my computer, and blah blah blah. Oh yeah, and I'm not representing for Castle. We can't have that. AT. ALL. I need to roll up my sleeves and get this stuff done. The kids don't actually need "supervision" right? 

And in completely other news, I started watching The Finder last night. I, surprisingly, do not hate it. But then again, I'm only 2 episodes in. There's still time...   ;-)

ME!!

Hi to everyone that still has me on their f-lists. I don't know if I even remember how to use LJ anymore! It's been over a YEAR!

Out of nowhere, the desire to write again has settled on me, and then the desire to get back involved here (with everyone that I've missed!). So just saying a quick "Oh, hai thar!" for now.

Let's catch up.

What's that you say?  You thought I had died?  Or perhaps disowned fandom?  Or been kidnapped and held for ransom without internet access?

Alas, none of those things have happened.  I've been here...busy as HELL...no time for squealing and such.  It's been a somewhat liberating experience, not feeling tethered to a computer all summer.  Yet at the same time, it's been a strangely lonely and alienating experience as well.  I used to check LJ about 40 times a day.  My last post was almost three months ago now!  Hopefully, not too many of you have dropped me from your f-list, although I certainly can't blame anyone that did. 

I haven't given up writing, although it sure felt that way for a while.  Going spoiler free had a very interesting side effect that I was unprepared for.  My hats off to you ladies that stay unspoiled and still manage to be active members of the community.  I think I might need some serious tips on how to do that because I just found myself slipping away more and more as the time went by.  Even now, this post is taking a concerted effort on my part.  I know that this feeling will fade, and that my usual fangirl craziness is almost in my grasp.  I just need to get over this dry spell and I know I'll get there.

And what better way to "prime the pump" than for Bones to be back this Thursday?!!!!

OH YEAH!!!!!

My excitement may be tempered, but I am totally stoked, and I can't wait for the fresh influx of new episodes.  I might even get some writing going again, because I don't have much except my computer to mess with in my free time.  (Meaning - after kids are in bed!)  We are moving (insert a big hell yeah) on the 1st from our 1200 sqft apartment into a 3371 sqft house on 1.37 acres with beach access and a gorgeous view!!  Words cannot even begin to describe my excitement.  So I've packed up most of our things at this point.  You can check out the house (and drool over it and be jealous ;-) HERE

Suffice to say, packing a family of five is a HUGE task, but I've stayed on it pretty well.  And as if having a new baby, two older kids, and a big move all on my plate right now isn't ebough, my hubby has officially quit his web development job and started his own mobile application company called MokaSocial.  Its craziness, I tell you!  Absolute craziness around here!  But I love it, and I'm excited, and I can't wait to get all settled into a new house with a new routine and a new way of doing things.  I just wish all of you were closer so I could invite you to the housewarming party!   

So much more to share with you guys...Harrison is such a wonderful baby.  He's almost five months old now - can you believe that?  What have you all been up to?  How are your families?  Who managed to stay spoiler free?  (I am RIDICULOUSLY un-spoiled.  GO ME I DID IT!!)  
More later, but I'm off to go and catch up with some of your posts.

Maybe it's time for me to put people on a filter.  If you don't like getting posts like this, I apologize.  But for those that have been asking...

IT'S FINALLY DONE!!!

Feel free to head over to My Blog and read the story of Harrison's birth.

My recent commitment to go spoiler free for Season 6 of Bones inspired me to make a few other changes as well.  I was so excited to use the new graphics that TemperTemper did for the spoiler-phobes, that I jumped right in and now...MANY hours later...I have a new journal layout.  I still need to add some stuff to my sidebar, but that can wait a little longer.  I would like to pay homage to some of my other (lesser) shows, so I'll need to round up some goodies.  So, if you feel like it, be sure to tell me what you think!  Maybe all of this new round of LJ'ing will find get my writer's muse going as well!  Fingers crossed!!!!!!

I'm doing it.

I officially decided.


SPOILER FREE FOR SEASON 6!

I've never done it before, and I'm sure it's going to be ha-haaaaaaaard!!!!  But I really think that the enjoyment that I get from not knowing so many details will be well worth the spoiler deprivation.  I don't consider official releases to be spoilers, per se.  I will watch promos.  I'm not going to go psycho or anything.  But I'll avoid sides, speculations, fic based off of such, posts that are theorizing...it's going to be so tough! 

Who's with me out there?  I know that a lot of you are doing it this year.  (All the cool kids are...)

And who the heck wants to make a graphic for our journals that says "Spoiler Free"?  I'll send you chocolate!!!

So I've declared myself...no going back now!  EEK!!!

WOW!  So, I feel like while I was out of LJ for a while, all of these new(er) names have started popping up and I don't know any of them!  I feel like a newb all over again!  I guess it's time to start reading the fic and checking out the icons etc of these folk and trying to get to know them better.  (If I want to...  heehee) 

I got (almost) caught up on all my shows.

Bones - I was never really behind.  I couldn't go without watching an ep, because it would be like going without AIR!  But I was behind on spoilers and such.  I still have all the fic etc to go through.  Phew!

House - all caught up except for last week's episode, because Hulu posts them after 8 days.  I'm not so into it that I feel like crawling the internetz looking for a DL link.  I can wait.

Castle - Oh Castle!  How I love thee!!  Nathan Fillion is so adorable I just want to squish him!  I feel a Firefly rewatch coming on...  And I'm starting to (as many of you have also) like Kate much more.  Her character is getting better fleshed out now and it's making me invest more emotionally in her.  I can honestly say I'm shipping these two pretty hard these days!  Especially after seeing Castle all moon-eyed in the last ep.  Poor baby!  *Pets Castle*

Lost - this show is killing me...along with all of it's characters!  I've cried more over Lost than I've cried over anything in my whole freakin' life!  It's a good thing that the series ends in a couple weeks, because I can't take it anymore.  I'll miss Jack though...he is eye candy for my TV.  =)

Glee - here's where it gets bad!  I dropped off last season just before the finale, but now that I have time to catch up, only the last 5 eps are available!  I'm gonna have to search out some links online I guess.  Any ideas Glee fans??  I absolutely LOVE this show, but I can't watch out of order.  I'm OCD like that!

And of course I have a million non-fandom items on my list.  I guess it's a good thing that we are in sweeps now because I need to focus my attention on some other things.  (oh YEAH, and WRITING!!!  I haven't written in FOREVER!!!!  I'm going to get back on the bandwagon very soon, I promise.)  

Who else is looking forward to Lie to Me next month?  Oh yeah Baby!!

Hello Friends!!!!!!

I don't even know where to begin this post, I really don't!  I feel like I've been out of the loop for so long, and the sheer amount of information that I have to go through is overwhelming, to say the least!  I made today the goal for myself though, so I am determined to get a post up and start wading my way back into all things of the internet category.  I managed to update Facebook, and I'm ALMOST finished with my epic blog entry, and now I am logging into LJ for the first time in AGES...PHEW!!!

First and foremost, before I go any further, I need to say something very important:
