Where Have I Been?

I fell off the blogosphere - where did I go?
I've been tired and busy and the rest I dont know...
Drowning in "to-do" lists that never get done.
My daily activities are seldom called fun!
My husband's been gone even more than before
Weekends pass in one minute, then he's back out the door.
I'm down 2 more students (I'm left with just 3)
Still I'm starving for time with my kids or just me.

ok enough rhyming...

i cant believe it has been so long since my last post.
here are the highlights from the last couple weeks.

We did our anual Valentines date... that was fun.
It all started about 4 years ago. A group of guys got together and rented a limo and surprised us all - like prom style... we went to a nice restaraunt then to reunion tower and more but i get all the different years confused... then the next year us girls did a fun bus and we went to a nice meal and a dance club... Then it was the boy's turn again... So this year (it was the girl's turn) we did it at the Wall's house because CarieAnne's baby was stuck at home with a feeding tube. Here is the only picture from the evening. We just had a nice meal at her house (i mean WAY NICE) and played games. Pretty low-key compared to years past, but it was still fun.
From right to left: Becky, Me, Carieanne and her sis-in-law Jen

I have also been hanging out a ton with my mom and sister (who are now moved in a couple miles away).

My sister Lydia came to visit, and her daughter shut the door on my nephew's finger and it fell off... drama. Besides that, we went to the zoo and had a great time.

I'm decorating the stage for the pta... (i think this is the last one i am going to do...)

My washing machine flooded all over requiring an expensive repair, so I am getting rid of it and just bought this one from LG. Unfortunately, it wont get here till the 21st, so I have been taking my laundry to the magic fairy (my mom)... ;) THANKS MOM!

I'm still sick... I have seriously been congested since before Thanksgiving. I think it is time for another steriod shot.

I REALLY need to go to the gym... I have been really unmotivated lately, but I think with the warmer weather approacing, I will get back in shape ;)

I've been playing Rock band and Guitar hero... but i need to take a break because now my hand is feeling arthritic!!!

So that's it. You haven't missed much.

I was starting to worry! Sounds like you have had some good times though. You girls look fab in the pic. Hope Carieann's baby is better. Feeding tubes are no easy thing to deal with. Megs had one while in the nicu so she hadn't started being mobile yet. Wow. Like I said good to see you are still alive. take care!

I just erased my super fun comment..AGHHH! Anyways, good to see that you are good. I was just in TX this weekend...not as many belt buckles and hats as I would have liked. No one called me "ma'am" or said "y'all" either. I though you had to do that id you lived in Tejas??? I'm kind of dissapointed, I must say :)

I like the rhyming...you should do it more often. And I'm with Amy, you guys look great in that picture.

Oh thank heavens for new post! I was getting sick of those gorgeous roses from you sweet husband. We were sick on Valetine's Day so we let eachother off the hook this year. But somehow Chris was suddenly not sick enough to not do you know what that night. So I'm still waiting for my flowers or gold medal for doing a super sick guy.
Anyway, so sad about your nephews finger! That happened to Chris' little sister when she was 3 and the tip popped off, but was hanging from still being slightly attatched. It all worked out and she still has it! I would just die if that ever happened to one of my babies! I'm feeling a lot better. I still have yucky moments and I'm still waiting for my energy to come back, but overall it's fairly mild.

Oh my friend...how I am right there with you on the blogging thing. It just seems as though I have way to much to do and when I get a minute, I don't want to be on the computer.
I am glad you have been good and I can't even imagine how much better life is now that you have family living close to you. Glad your back!

Beth said...

what the heck his finger came off? i hope all is well!

Amy said...

Glad to hear from you again! That happened to Cody when he was 4...hope your nephew is doing OK now!

That new washer looks divine!

And I've just been drinking a whole lot. Time for me to get back on the wagon and hit some AA meetings. And no it wasn't the diluted Valentine's gala that drove me back to the bottle. Although that may have upgraded me to Jack. I hope Emily gets her roid shot and chiropractic massage so her sinuses get cleared up. Anyways, got to go on another drinking binge...

Jennifer said...

wow! no wonder you've been MIA. Personally, I think a little blogging break is healthy. Sounds like you're having a great time with your fam close by. I think Dawn is jealous ;(

p.s. about my post...believe me I'm not that freakish of a mom that I water down my kids D.C. It had been sitting out from the night before, hence melted ice-cube= watered down ;)

Meredith said...

Wow, to the finger..poor guy, how is he?
Sounds like a fun Valentines! good ideas!

And last, Im glad your mom and sister are close..how did you pull that off? You are the favorite or what?
