Ramblings and an Award

This adorable award was given to me by my good friend Mamarazzi. Thank you so much...I love it....and I big red puffy heart you too. Hopefully, if the stars and the moon align up perfectly next Thursday I will have the distinct pleasure and honor of meeting Mamarazzi in person for coffee!! I am very excited about that.

I realize I have been remiss in my blogging as of late. I apologize for that and I appreciate the inquiries from my blogging friends. You make me feel so loved. I have been extremely busy with life lately. As you know my mother in law had her knee replaced and I have been busy helping her. She is doing well, although she may argue with me on that!! My father in law has been very spoiled in his lifetime, consequently he is a domestic nightmare. I think my mother in law's recovery time is going to be lengthened just because of him. Needless to say, my help has been greatly needed and greatly appreciated. I am also very happy to live close enough to be a source of support for them.

Our house has been busy also. Dave was on a business trip last week so I was a single mom for a few days. It was also girl scout week and the meeting is at our house. I went on a field trip with Michael's class to the zoo, that was fun. I had a meeting with Cassie's Math teacher and found out that she is getting a D in the class due to her careless mistakes and her laziness...that was fun to hear!! Michael also had his first basketball game....that is a post by itself!! We have let our housekeeper go in order to save money and I have forgotten how much time is taken in heavy cleaning. I think I need to call a family meeting and delegate some cleaning chores to my family members!!

Of course we also have the usual daily activities like working, walking the dog, cooking meals, schlepping kids here there and everywhere, and all the other mundane chores that make my life so interesting. Unfortunately blogging is last on the list and by the time I sit down to the computer at night my brain is so tired that I cannot think of anything coherent to say. On second thought maybe an incoherent post might be kind of fun....hmm...something to think about!!

So that is all my excuses why I have been MIA this week. I would like to say that next week will be better, but I don't want to jinx myself. I am participating in FM this week and I have some post ideas swimming around in my head....hopefully I will get some writing time this weekend. Don't give up on me just yet!!!

Excuse me now while I go seek therapy for my unusual fascination for the Space Needle.

Have a great time on Thurs- it's lovely meeting a blog buddy. That award is lovely and I wholly agree with the sentiment.

Sounds like a very busy week! But lots of fun too! Congrats on the award!

I know what you mean about life and blogging being last. some nights when the kiddos get to bed, I just don't want to sit and type. And since school has started there is so much to stay on top of and take care of. Here's to finding a little blog time in our lives!

Life has kept me from blogging as much lately, too. But it's in a good way, so I can't complain!

Mother Goose said...

I won't give up on you and don't give up on me! I am so glad that nothing more was wrong with your non blogging dayz. I hope mil heals quickly! I'm glad you are there for her too! she needs ya!

We need to invent some sort of "don't give up on me" award or button or something. I, too, have been SO remiss about my blogfriends.
