Blog, sweet blog!Â I hope you know that I think of you as one of those steady friends who will always be there even if we don’t speak for a while.Â That we can pick up right where we left off.Â A long-term friend.Â And I hope you feel the same about me.Â ‘Cause I’ve been so busy this past month that I just haven’t had the time to pick up the phone keyboard and say ‘HI’.Â But, I’m here now, and that’s what counts!!
Since we last spoke, we have:
Built a closet and door way to Leif’s room, built a new wall in the center room and created book shelves to house the home school stuff, painted the screen doors, sewn up many curtains, joined the gym and lost 5+ pounds, weaned Leif :-(, gone to my first writer’s conference (can we say ‘Holy Cow, Overwhelming!’), written two early-reader books, planted peas and 50+ strawberry plants, started spring session of the home school co-op, started driving Kaia to girl scouts, piano lessons, and swimming lessons, and helped Kaia build a car for the pine car derby races, read Princess for Hire (fabulous!!), read Growing Wings (loved it!), took that long awaited trip to Mars, saved 14 kittens stuck in high trees, and climbed Mt. Everest … backwards …Â twice.Â Yes, you may call me SHE-RA!!
So you see, Blog, it’s not that I was trying to ignore you.Â I just didn’t get a chance to drop in.Â Please forgive me.Â I hope to be around more often … soon.
