My Absence from Blogging

I wanted to apologize for the lack of posts and being slow at getting back with everyone lately. There has been a lot happening, so I thought I would catch you up on a couple things that have been going on around here:

  • Besides the weather being nice and being outside more during the week, my weekends have also gotten longer with Rich working four 10 hour days and having Fridays off. I am trying not to be on the computer as much when Rich is home to spend more time as a family. Plus I just haven't been inside as much to do my usual computing.
  • The end of last week and the beginning of this week I have literally had a 'little' extra responsibility. I am babysitting a little 5 month old! He is a really good little guy, but having 3 kids under 3 years old can still be a handful!
  • This past Friday my grandfather passed away somewhat unexpectedly. To keep the tears to a minimum right now, I'm going to keep this part short. I'm just not my usual self these last few days.
  • My parents flew in from Germany on Saturday for the previously mentioned reason. With them just being home for a short time, I will probably be spending more time away for this next week and a half.
  • Morgan's birthday party is coming up next weekend and I have a bunch to organize and clean, plus learn how to decorate a Curious George cake. I'm excited for her birthday, but I'm really NOT looking forward to this cake. (I can't switch it out for a different cake now. She already asks nearly every day about her 'George cake'-LOL!)

Anyways, that's a peak at what is going on here. I'll still be around this week, but just not as much. I'm hoping to be back to the normal blogging and keeping up with everyone by the middle of next week. Take care and have a good week! :-)

I am sorry to hear about your grandfather and I totally understand why you want to take a break from blogging. Take it easy. Enjoy having your parents around and have fun planning your daughter's birthday. We'll still be here when you decide to come back.
