Why yes; yes I have fallen off the face of the earth.
Life has just seemed crazy-busy lately. I have resigned myself that with a houseful of children from young to old, life is gonna be full. This is not my restful season of life. Keeping up with day to day life has just been a big ol' challenge for me. There is never a break from the meal planning, grocery shopping, cooking, dishes, cleaning, laundry, child training, and more. I know there are women who handle much bigger households much more efficiently than me, but for this only-child mom, managing a household of 8 people is very challenging. I am figuring this all out as I go.
So, blogging has taken a backseat. Pretty obvious when my last post was back in February. (We did get rid of the lice, by the way.) There are a lot of things that I love to do that I have had to set aside for a while. I hope and pray that I can train myself and my family to be more organized so that I can pick them back up again because I really miss them! Not doing much photography or any scrapbooking makes me feel like I have cut off an arm. I will come back to it though. I pray it can be soon.
Now that many of our outside activities are ending for the summer, I feel like I have just a bit more time. I intend to use it to catch up on some much needed home organization and to do some projects that I have put off. No, school is not ending for us, but it is shifting into a different, more relaxed mode. I am loving it! So, hopefully, I will be around the ol' blog more. There are so many cool things that I have been learning that I would love to share here.
