General Update

I've not written in awhile or often. I find myself thinking I should shut down my blog, but then I remind myself that I write for me - not for others. Don't get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoy the relationships I've formed with other bloggers. But the primary purpose of blogging is to have my own diary.

My lack of blogging is not that there isn't anything going on. Rather it is that there is too much going on. In addition my laptop keyboard hates me. It eats my letters. There is a delay between my hitting a key and it appearing on screen. Then it randomly scrambles letters too. But enough of that.

I survived Munchkin's first year of school. She did amazingly well. She was promoted to first grade, and is already reading on a third-grade level. She has lost both er front teeth which I think is adorable.Bugaboo is an active toddler. He sure has figured out this walking bit. We are getting into the terrible 2 stage rapidly and he definitely has a mind of his own. Husband got a job - a new, new one. The first new one only lasted a few weeks because they wanted him to work 7 days a week. Now he works Mon - Fri, but it is second shift. For the summer that is not so bad - he gets to be home with the kids some before Munchkin goes to summer camp and Bugaboo to daycare.

Our church is experiencing major problems. Aside from the issue I posted about recently, there are other issues which causing turmoil and people are leaving left and right.

Work is great. I am doing more child welfare cases and really enjoying it. Even if it does step on toes. I could not have done this even one year ago but now I am ready to kick me some deadbeat parents' butts.

So if you've not updated in awhile leave a note saying how you are. What's new with you?

glad you're still doing ok.
been busy here too.
we had that problem with the bf's laptop, a wireless keyboard/mouse fixed the problem. it's a common glitch, and one that most laptops don't have a fix for.
sorry to tell u that.

I check on you every day :-) I know you are busy and don't have any expectations as far as how often you post. It is always good to get an update. I too have had a FULL past couple of weeks...probably told you most of it already- biggest stressor has been the repeated storms that have torn the tarps off the remodel I have been working on causing extensive damage, fortunately, its covered by builders risk insurance and the homeowners are a young Christian couple of gracious no one has been hurt. I had a Dr's appointment today to see a specialist...he was a hoot, took my wife along, We laughed so much bantering w/ the Dr- he was great. Wants to see me again in 6 months. Also found a new (used) truck on craigslist and bought it tonight. so yea, there has been along going on here too...I am praying for you as you navigate the Church issues. later- DM

I get so frustrated and dismayed by companies that expect employees to work long hours. People need down time with their families and friends and their families need them. Good for him moving on.

and I just now saw Toilet. that is a hilarious pseudonym. Just sorry your family is having to deal with this guy.

I just cannot believe that munchkin is going to be going into first grade and the terrible two approaching for the baby. Where did that time go?

I find I don't post when there's too much going on as well. It's hard to shift gears and get into something other than what's consuming me at the moment.

I hate when that happens.

Blogging is not really a priority for me.

I am glad to see that you are a good "navigator."

Be blessed in all that you do!

I didnt post for a long period. But your core of blogfriends don't go away and it is good to leave your options open by leaving a blog in place.
