Wow. It's been one month since my last post. I've had plenty of folks ask if I've given up on blogging. No, I haven't. Life is just happening at a rate that I am having a hard time keeping up with. Blogging typically falls off of the list of things to do at the end of the day.

I work full-time at a very demanding job. I raise two boys that NEVER stop. I cook dinner every night once I kick off the heels and throw my hair up in a ponytail. I clean up from dinner. I pack lunches and snacks. I lay out clothes for the next day. Sometimes those clothes come out of a drawer, but more often they come from a pile of laundry that is folded and waiting to be put away...or maybe not even folded. Sometimes I pull clothes out of the dirty laundry bin. Yep, I said it. I "clean" my house although my shower disagrees (I pick my battles; toilets and kitchen floor get top priority). I help with homework and projects. I tuck boys in at night and send them off to sweet dreams. I try to spend what little time I have left with my husband so that we look at each other the same way now as we did 10 years ago. I serve at church. I try to read or run or do something for me, although those times seem few and far between. Sick children, doctor appointments, errands, grocery shopping, party planning, etc. etc. etc.

I'm struggling with health issues; emotional, physical, and mental.

I'm overwhelmed.

So, no, I haven't given up on blogging. It's just hard to find the time. Hang in there with me. Pray for me.

I have many pictures to post, ranging from rain dances to my big boy's 6th birthday party (sigh...yes, Landon turned SIX yesterday!).
