A Quick Hello

Hello?    Hello ...    Hello . . .  Hello  .  .  .  hello.

Is this thing even still on? {Tap} {Tap}  {Tap} {Screech}

Maybe if I wipe some of this dust off. {A-choo!}

Summer was exhausting in its fun. It was full of camping, swimming, golf lessons (for the kids, not me), and a trip- complete with 48 hours of driving- to Disneyland. We put together no less than eight 700+ piece puzzles, read some books, and forgot the meaning of "bedtime."

Many things left me this summer. Old Red is finally dead and was replaced by a less bold, newer model Suburban. My iPhone is now a Droid. Which was stolen out of Old Red and replaced again.Oh yeah, my oldest was magically replaced by a high schooler; I swear it happened while I was blinking my eye.

And with my brand spanking-new laptop, I can finally have some time online again! Good thing, because it turns out I need to write to keep any semblance of sanity. Speaking of which, if you find where I've currently misplaced mine, will you let me know?



  1. Welcome back the land of the living... I mean blogging. Because obviously you're doing all kinds of fabulous living while not blogging. It was a crazy summer around here too. I did blog a few times, but it only takes about five posts to get all the way back to May in my archives.

  2. YEA! She's back! WooHOO! You've been missed. Write away, catch us up!

    Sounds like you've had some serious bad electronic karma!

  7. Believe it or not, I actually was wondering what happened to you and your blog. I'm not sure if I've ever commented before, but I certainly am happy you have returned. :)

    Welcome back with your new laptop! So glad you had such a wonderful summer. You have just given me a bit of hope. If you survived a 48 hour drive to Disneyland then my family can certainly survive an 11 hour to the same place. Shh! It's a huge surprise for our kids. They know nothing about it, and they won't until we put them in the car that morning to go. I hope we have as good a time as you did! So good to see you again!

    So exited to see that you are back!!! I've missed your great posts! Though I'm glad you had a fabulous blog--free summer. :)

    Welcome back to blogging. Maybe now you can convince the rest of our siblings to blog again as well...
