Bad Blogger!

Readers, forgive me for I have been a bad blogger...  it has been nearly 4 weeks since my last blog post...  Ooh, look at that, I feel like I'm in a confessional again... sounds like it, too.  :)

What have I been up to?

  • Lots of school involvement for me in the last few weeks: classroom volunteering, field trip chaperoning, and unpacking and displaying boxes and boxes of books for the school-wide book fair to be held next week.
  • My in-laws came and visited for a few days, and we had a great time with them.  They got to see one of Matthew's baseball games.
  • Finished up the baseball season.  The team actually won their last game - giving them a 1-and-10 or so record for the season.
  • Parent-teacher conferences.  Early dismissals from school for said conferences.  
  • Lots of creating for Scrapstreet magazine;  while I'm no longer an editor, I still help out by creating items for the monthly Showroom article and occasionally for other columns as well.  
  • Some sewing: one of my bees has a Christmas tree block swap ongoing, and my 12 identical blocks are nearing completion.  
  • Those of you who know me well know how much I love diet Coke, and that it was a 2L-a-day habit.  Did you notice the past tense?  I'm officially 4 weeks clean now.  No caffeine in that time.  An occasional fizzy drink like diet Sprite.  (And by occasional I mean only about one a week.)  Lots of flavored waters.  (Love those, not so fond of plain water.)   Amazingly, I did not get migraine-level headaches, only mild-to-moderate ones that were easy to cope with.  
  • I also prepped two rooms and a hallway for painting, then had the painters here for a couple of days getting it done.  It's all nice and fresh upstairs now.  Well, if you don't look at the rugs.  I could render down the playroom rug for soup stock.  (Any David [and Leigh] Eddings fans out there may recognize that line...)  So today I got an estimate on getting all the rugs cleaned.  It's a bit pricey, but considering the state of the rugs...  Well, DH and I will be making a decision over the weekend.
  • Oh, and if I'm going to come clean, I have to admit to a bit of an obsession with a Ratchet and Clank PS3 video game.  Been spending lots of time shooting things up.  
So, that sums up my last 4 weeks or so.   Busy crazy life stuff.  But I'm back on the blogging wagon.  Type at y'all later.

  1. Yikes, you are busy. I forgive you for temporarily abandoning your blog. Glad you're back, though. I've been enjoying keeping up with you a little more through the blog... Obviously we're both too busy to write letters!!
