No, no, no – where have YOU been?
This is my only means of avoiding the elephant in the room and not catching flack over where I have been – deflection. Because I am fully convinced that in the last two weeks you have all been bursting at the seams with impatience, wondering just where it is that I have taken off to. Unfortunately for you, and even if you were only half serious about wondering where I was, I am back. And I have lots to talk about.
For the sake of time and due to my utter lack of patience and energy, I have decided not to condense everything from the past two weeks or so into several paragraphs for your reading
displeasure, I shall simply make you a list, show you a few pictures and then solemnly vow to be back and ready to annoy you this coming week.
- Life got hectic – we are grappling with a few major home repairs that need to be done around here. And the sad part? Nothing has even started yet and we are already stressed over it. We are in the midst of trying to organize ourselves before everything becomes a disorganized semblance of what it once was. Not that we had it all together around here before any of this happened, but…
- Staycation – we were spoiled and had the hubs home for a full 9 days. We drove all over the great big (chuckle) state of Maryland and did a whole bunch of stuff with two (mostly) happy kiddos in tow. We had a great time and I just couldn’t make myself sit down at a computer.
- Sickness – everybody got down with the sickness. Literally. And it. was. awful. No seriously, you should go put on some Purrell after reading this BUT DON’T GO ANYWHERE YET, I’M NOT FINISHED!
- Life got hectic – who says that I can’t use the same thing twice in one post. Shut up.
There you have it. The list. Now! The pictures!
This is my solemn vow that I will be back, fully prepared to annoy all of you very, very soon. You’ve been warned. Now, turn off the computer and go Purrell your hands.
