ok, so since I'm pretty much being harassed by all my loyal fans for me to return to my normal blogging self . . . . I'll stay up a little and just give an update as to WHY I've been MIA.
I think I've already said about how after I finished working on 4/30 we went to Vegas for a week, then we had a REAL two-day 8-year anniversary celebration, then we did about 120 hours of weeding 600+ square feet of flower beds plus 160 square feet of garden planting, then cleaning my house I hadn't touched in two months, then my brother Jon & his fam came into town for a week (last week), then last Saturday my brother James was sealed to his wife and baby in the IF temple and we had my WHOLE family in town over the weekend (2 parents, 5 siblings, 4 inlaws, 13 grandkids) and this week my brother Tony and his family are staying at my house. Have you ever had 6 kids under the age 7 in the same house at the same time for 7 days straight? Yeah, we're a little busy :-) Plus tomorrow is little miss Stina's 3rd bday!! This weekend is Time Out For Women (my first time going to one of these) and possibly? I'll start busting out the Picasa collages of my 3 months of pictures for my blog that I'm behind on.
And I know we were planning a trip to Chi-town in July/Aug -- but I really hate to break my own heart here and cancel those plans . . . but court for my foster kids is June 30 and the judge has 30 days after that to make a ruling so it kindof puts a kibosh on being able to plan anything in the summer when you don't know how many kids you'll be in possession of or if you'll need to be in town for transitioning back to parents, etc. Whatev.
So, chillax and have faith that when I do make a comeback, it will be well worth the wait :-) !!
