hello from the other side


Well, there I go again not blogging for 6 or 7 months. Should I be surprised? I guess it's my style. I'll go with that. It also directly relates to when we gave up screens. Coincidence? We'll never know.

And speaking of that, I will be writing a little post on that to fill you in on how it went. I meant to keep going strong with the updates, but again, when was I supposed to blog if my kids don't watch tv? Joking, sort of. And to kill the suspense we lasted about 5 months...I still count it as a success and contemplated changing the title of that post to "Why We Decided to Give Up Screens for 5 Months"...but I'm committed to being real over here I guess, and a little dose of humility can be good for a gal. But I have many thoughts on it all and will get that post going soon.

I think one reason why I haven't blogged since that post was because I put a lot of pressure on myself, and I felt like I needed to only write about how that was going. So then the pendulum swung the opposite direction and I didn't write at all. That and I accidentally left my laptop out on the deck in the driest summer in the collective memory and it...rained. I think we had one, maybe two rains the entire summer! It was ruined, but we were able to save the pictures and I learned my lesson. I mean, who does that? Am I five? Where are the real adults?

I was chatting with some friends last night and I can't remember why, but I brought up my blog and also that it has been forever since I posted. So I decided to break the silence and just get something up...so here I am!

I would like to still do my yearly New Years thoughts, is that so lame to do in March? I guess I can do whatever I want..haha. SO I might do that for my own personal records. And then I have some other news, like a new job for Matt, some new health things that have been on my mind and house projects. My 3 readers will be happy to know I am back, I'm sure. Haha. (Hi Mom!)

(Wow, since my last post I have noticed that for some reason I rely heavily on emojis to get my tone across..hopefully I can nip that in the bud! Blogging also challenges my spelling...I believe this will be a good for my lazy brain!!)

Here's my summer babes!
