since i've been gone.

i'm in a major blog funk.
actually it's just an all around funk.

a few people asked when i was going to blog again.
that made me feel good.
made me feel like this thing is actually missed.
thanks mardee and susie :)

i do want to blog.
i think about things i could blog all the time.
but sometimes i have to try to get other things in line before i give myself time for this.

here's a bunch of stuff that has gone on.
im sure i missed something.
if i did and i remember, im sure ill feel guilty and try to add it next time.

-Lilly turned 5.
-Made and ate cake.
-Lilly celebrated her bday with school friends at W's gymnastics.
-Made and ate a birthday party cake.

-Lilly’s playing soccer (and has scored 2 goals!) -We put our house on the market.
-I turned 30.
-I ruined a big birthday surprise.
-Had a breakdown over the fact that I don’t like surprises, and don’t know why I can’t enjoy my birthdays.
-Still managed to be spoiled for my bday.
-Got lots of bday cards in the mail (thanks to ALL who sent me one!)
-Received a beautiful necklace from Dave and the kids.
-Ate at my favorite brunch buffet for my bday.

-Lilly had her kindergarten registration and screening.
-Lots of embroidery going on.
-Enjoyed a special dinner and dessert out with a very special friend.

Welcome back, Jen! You definitely have been missed.
Happy, happy belated birthday to you, Lilly and Cohen. Wow, I can't believe Lilly is 5 now. I remember when she was born!
Hope you "see" you around here more often. :)

Wow busy busy! Happy belated birthday(s)!! :) I meant to email you later today (finally) to let you know I'm glad things went well with your aunt.

I was also gonna let you know we too finally went on the market this week! No showings yet, but we're having an open house on Sunday. I know those don't really do anything but it was my hubby's idea. :)

Glad you're back in the blogging world. :)

Yeah for Jen!!! So many congrads due you....30--it isn't so bad. Kids birthdays--what fun to watch grow, learn and develop. I am still smiling remembering Lily telling me I couldn't come to her birthday cuz I am not a kid. (cute cake) Homemade mac & cheese is the best, cooking homemade is so satisfying. Lily playing soceer, great goaling little one. Good luck (and prayers) on the house selling. And everything else....
