I know.  I know.  I know.  I've just been so busy being Mommy that there are just not enough hours in the day for blogging or even me time.  I'm thrilled to eek out a shower while the little bub is taking his morning nap.

Now he's walking -has been for almost a month.  I have to plan his 1st birthday party.  I'm drowning in a pile of outgrown baby clothes, blankets, and assorted paraphernalia that he only used for a couple of months.  I'd like to give away or consign some or all of it, but hubby has delusions of another child. 

So we've been fine here.  Things have much improved over the past few months.  Now that he's more mobile the little guy can entertain himself a little -at least long enough for me to dash off to the bathroom or fix our lunch.  Brother being home for summer break has also been particularly wonderful this year because the boys have each other so it's not all Mommy all the time.

The heat here is as unbearable as ever.  A couple of months ago our old minivan died so we were kind of forced to buy a new one -that was a large expense that we really hoped to put off one more year.  Now a couple of weeks ago we found major leakage in the attic and had to buy a new roof.  Another very unwanted expense.  We're only half way through the year and we've already spent a large percentage of hubby's annual salary -and I'd been hoping he could finally cut back on the overtime at work. 

I worry constantly about him putting in 82 hour weeks and getting very little sleep.  We're not getting any younger and this can definitely not be good for his health.

Well, life rushes on.  We're doing fine here.  I can't promise any regularity on my blog but I'll try.

  • Well, you know, being a mommy is pretty much the most important thing. Blogging comes second!
