Anyway! Here I am. Just two weeks later typing up a blog post. Why you ask? Well to be perfectly honest, I was a bit sad that I wasn't going to blog anymore. The Chairman asked me after I told him I was quitting, 'are you sure?'. One of the MYP asked me the next day, 'don't you want to record special milestones?' Then today I just read about the Pioneer Woman's sweet Basset Hound Charlie dying. I got a bit teary-eyed of course and was thinking how much I would want to therapeutically write a post when Lisi finishes her days (which I hope isn't real soon).
So! I may continue blogging but only at a pace that isn't every Monday. Or maybe it will. I have no idea. I'll type along when inspiration strikes - if only for the amusement and record for our own family. Will see.
So! We just had our house bursting with family again. I think the word 'blessed' is sometimes overused but I feel completely justified to use it when describing my own family. I still have living and loving parents. I have a sister and a brother who both have spouses I adore. I have nephews and nieces who were adorable babies and now are friends to me. And a good majority of them were with us for the weekend from far away places. Yes, I am blessed and I have and always will give thanks for what I have.
If you know the Chairman, you might know that he isn't really big into changes (unless wheels are involved). So the other day when I texted a picture of some furniture and asked him what he thought - I figured I'd wander off and that would be that. He responded, 'sure'. Oh? Really? A few more calls made and within an hour of walking into the store, I had three humongous boxes in my garage and a slight pit in my stomach. Did I do the right thing? What if he hates it? How do I ever return this when it's all unpacked? What in the world do I do with these mountains of cardboard? Thankfully, it all passed the rigid test of the Chairman and the cardboard was mostly consumed with a pyromaniac, gas-in-hand son.
So the blessings of family also bring the mountains of sheets and towels that need to be run through the cycles. I better go do something more productive.
So this is enough today! Glad to touch base again. Will just see how life unfolds and as inspiration strikes how much I type up on here. Thanks for all your support! 💕
