I can totally relate to the Jillian Michaels girl crush - she's awesome. I even have workout cards for my treadmill that she's the personal trainer for. However, I'm with you on the exercise thing. I'll be doing good for like two weeks and then fall off the wagon into a pint of Ben and Jerry's Phish Food.

Congrats on the ESOP thing. That's really cool. Being satisfied at work is so important, since so much of your time is spent there. If you have to be away from your children, shouldn't it be satisfying? I'm just now getting to that point in my current job.

Also, your children are very cute. Thanks for posting pictures :)

It's so nice to read about someone being so happy. Good for you! I'll be at Blogher too, and I'll make sure to say hi if I see you. I'm so excited to have a chance to meet all these bloggers whose sites I've been reading for so many years!

Your employer is awesome. Just plain awesome. What a wonderful place for you to be, especially at this age. You'll get to grow with the company and really be influential in decision-making. That is so fantastic!

Your nephew is SO sweet! I can't believe he's about to turn 1 already.

Have a blast at BlogHer! Write a short update or two for those of us who can't make it!

I am so not going to BlogHer. The whole idea of a large group of people I do not know (or very few I know) just scares me! Hopefully you will have a blast though!

And congratulations on all of the cool things going on at work. I bet it does make being away from the kids a little easier!

BlogHer sounds like such a blast, I can't believe your company is paying for you to go this year! I hope you have a wonderful time!

Whoa - Danny is almost one?! For real? Which means I've been following your family for two years? I guess I see how fast time ticks everytime I look at my daughter, who is Kara's age (Nov 07 baby), and is spitting out new words at a seeminly exponential rate. I love seeing the changes in your family!

Wow. What a joy it is to see all those children playing together. Have super time in Chicago.

Sounds like life is treating you well.

I'm totally digging Abnormally Attracted to Sin too! I fell for Tori when I was 15. You've described the process so very well, how when you change the music changes meaning too. Awesome. I hope you enjoy the concert next month. I'm seeing her twice in September and I'm very excited!

You are so lucky to have such a great job!

Coffee. Mmmm coffee. Welcome to my world! A new reason to look forward to the morning!

Have fun at Blogher!

I am so with you on the work thing. I could never quite put my finger on it, but you described it so perfectly...I'm so happy and content and fulfilled by my job that usually the day goes by so fast and I don't have time to miss my babies. And I feel so good after work!

I'm glad things seem to be going so well with you!
