The Past Few Weeks.

Tuesday, April 3, 2012

Hi, it's me. The most neglectful blogger ever. Remember me? I know I could give you all a laundry list of reasons why I haven't been around much, but the short story is that finding the time to sit down and think has gotten quite a bit harder with the addition of BG. Every day I have a list of things to do while the boys nap and somehow writing a blog post is always the thing I can never get to. I realize that my not blogging doesn't effect the world in any real way, but for me, it has felt like something has been missing. The past few weeks I've thought about shutting the whole thing down, but I think I'd miss my little corner of the internet, and I hope that some of you would miss me too. So, rather that shutting down, I'm thinking I need a little freshening up around here to {hopefully} kickstart my blogging mojo. In the next few weeks I'm hoping to have a new look, and renewed fervor for sharing with you our daily lives, and all the things that make my world a little brighter. Until then, I promise to try to be more present, and barring any disasters, be more regular in my posting!

Now on to the good stuff. I figured that the best way to share with you all what we've been up to the past few weeks is to go into the ol' iPhone and try to remember myself what we've been doing. While I may not "remember" most days, I'm happy to report that I somehow seem to remember to capture the highlights with my camera phone.* Here are the highlights.

First it got warm 'round these parts. Really warm. Like it was almost 90 degrees. Some people complained. We were not those people. BG was the first to take his thighs out for a show. 

Followed quickly by his brother.

Right around the time the weather heated up, my husband lost his resolve and finally agreed that we needed a new car. We had outgrown our beloved Prius, and for the first time in both our lives we now have our first new car! I have to admit, I have never been one to understand the allure of "nice" cars, but after driving this bad boy for a month... I totally get it. Oh, and that new car smell, I really think they should bottle it and sell it as cologne!

In case there was any doubt, the LM has not faltered in his love of skateboarding. He still lives and breathes it. Here he is (in the blue helmet) rolling with his weekend "crew."

Did I mention that I have two kids? You know how I know? We finally became "those people' at Target. The ones that roll around with the giant cart. The LM used to use the other side to store his "stuffes" but now happily shares the seat with his baby bro. 

Speaking of brothers, lately these two have been actually playing together. The bigger Gray gets, the happier the LM seems to be having him around. So much so that now he only plays in baby's "area" which makes Gray pretty much the happiest little guy on the planet. Who needs entertainment when you have a big brother?

Of course, all good things must come to an end, and last week the warm weather left us for a few more weeks. Even though we are back to fleeces and hats, we have still be spending quite a bit of time swinging at the park. 

... and goofing around at the indoor playground. 

There you have it. The past few weeks. Pinky swear it won't take me this long to post again!

*What did they do in the olden days... and my olden I mean pre 2007? I feel like I should thank my mother every day that I actually have pictures of my childhood... could you imagine having to develop film every week?

You've been living's good when that happens! But having a place to place all the creativity is important too. Glad you're planning on sticking with it! Also- cool car!

I for one would miss this blog if you were to ditch it. :) I can totally sympathise over having no free time, but I really enjoy reading about your little family and always check in every couple of days to see if you have any new posts. My husband and I are planning for bub #2 soon and reading your blog helps me imagine what our lives might be like. :)

So glad you are sticking around :). I love reading your blog since I can really relate to so much of your life. Our little ones are very close to the same age and reading about your days makes me feel normal! Thus, I can totally understand Why your blog can't always be the priority.

Thank you all for your kind words of encouragement! Just putting this all out there was enough to kick start my blogging mojo. I've spent the last few days working on a new design and I'm hoping soon to be back and better than ever!

Big smooched to you all!
