Long Time No See

Well, hello...It's been quite some time...almost a month!

I have no real reason for not having posted in close to a month.

I've been busy with work, school, coaching.

The days are just too short.

Some days I think about tons of things to write about.

Other days, I think I have nothing to write about.

I haven't had the burning desire to get my words out there as I once did. I don't know why. Things have been very good. But nothing is pressing me to open up the blog and write.

Maybe it's the winter. All the snow. All the cold. Maybe with Spring on it's way (not really) I'll be more apt to open it up and write.

For now, some random events of the past month....

My husband received a promotion at work. Things are trending in the positive direction and I am ever so grateful for that.

My son will turn 4 tomorrow. I still remember the exact moment I found out I was pregnant with him as well as the morning my husband drove me to the hospital to be induced.

My husband and one my best friends threw me a surprise 29th birthday party. It was lovely!

My son has been doing wonderfully on ice skates and we're thinking about getting him some private lessons!

My daughter is almost completely potty trained and she's in a big girl bed. I am constantly floored by the fact that she is almost two and we never thought she would come to be.

I have been trying to get my house organized. Going through baby clothes and our clothes, throwing away things we just don't need anymore. It's not working.

I've lost close to 20 pounds and my clothes are nice and roomy and I LOVE it!!

My son has learned to sing the Grateful Dead and it makes me tear up when I hear him singing it!!

We are having my son's 4th birthday party on Sunday and it's going to be a madhouse...part of me is looking forward to it, the other part is quite nervous about it and not overly excited about it!!

I am working on a Little Einstein's Rocket cake for the big celebration and my son could not be more excited about it!!

I blacked out at work on Friday. Hopefully, the answer is simple and fixable. I find out tomorrow.

My daughter's hair has somehow managed to take on a brighter and deeper orange/red tone and it's quite cute.

I have become obsessed with Mario Kart and I can kick my almost 4 year old's butt like no one's business!!

All of these things are, for the most part, rather mundane and ordinary but they are the things that I count amongst my blessings and that make me grateful to be alive.

More to come...soon...

Thanks for sticking around!

I know how you feel. I don't feel much like blogging these days either! Sounds like you are doing great in all other departments, so who cares whether or not you post every day. (Or every week.)
