for all my fans!

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 :-) !!


  1. Wow! You have been busy! Time Out For Women is awesome, you'll love it! :-)

  2. Wow- what a crazy month!! I hope things calm down a little bit for you..and good luck with all the court mess..we'll miss you!!

  3. Dude, I don't want to hear it!

    JK, holy crap, you're my hero for being able to do it all! It sounds like life has been so busy, but in a wonderful way with all the family time! Take your time and enjoy it all! Love you!

  4. I have missed your blogs, but I haven't been blogging much myself, and you have a much better excuse than me! It's good to be busy though, it makes life more interesting =0)

  5. I agree- life is extra crazy lately and I haven't been keeping up very well myself. Good Luck with the kids and the rest of your summer and I can't wait to see the pics and hear about everything else that is inevitably in store for you... :)
