It’s Summer {a mom-day post}

Ahh, summer.
  How I love you.
    And hate you. 
       All at the same time.

I have been very quiet on the internet of late.  Not that I haven’t been wasting inordinate amounts of time on the internet.  I just haven’t been adding anything to the fray.

I feel like I should have amazing adventures or elaborate explanations of what I have been up to to justify my lack of posting, updating and sharing.

The truth is, I have done next to nothing. 
I take that back, I have kept the 2 year old alive,  ALL SUMMER.  (for 2 years actually, all told)  That in and of itself should suffice.

 And still, I don’t know that it’s enough.

 I have been sewing.  Mostly projects for my gig at The Ribbon Retreat, which I love, love, LOVE!  I have squeaked out a few wallets this summer and various odds and ends, but nothing Earth shattering.   Oh the plans in my head!  If I had unlimited time, resources and energy- you would be WOWED!!!  I promise you!  Like- mind completely blown, wowed!  I would be rich, and famous.  And Martha and I would be tight- like sisters.  (I probably shouldn’t be writing at 11 p.m., you’ll have to chalk the delirium up to exhaustion)

Instead, I have played.  Mostly with the 2 year old.  While her siblings have largely been left to their own devices.  And I have loved it.  It has been quiet and mostly calm and relaxed.  No adventures, no grand plans.  I took the kids up to my grandparent’s cabin for a week, where we did even less than we do when we’re at home.  Ahhh, nature.

So, there you have it.  My report and explanation of where I have been and why I haven’t been blogging.  I have no excuse for it, except that I didn’t really feel like it. 

Sort of like this. 🙂

But, I’m beginning to feel like Marty McFly in Back to the Future, who slowly disappears after making changes to the past.  I need to get things back on track. so I can be the full, complete, totally rocking me that I need to be to be happy.  So, expect to see me around more, that is if anyone is still here.

tap, tap (that’s me, tapping the monitor)  are you still there?  Anyone?  Bueler?  (wrong movie, I know)

Leave me a quick comment if you’re still here.  Let me know what you’ve been up to this summer.

We’ll see you around.

    I'm still here listening 🙂 Summer will be over in the blink of an eye, and hopefully you'll have more time to wow us with your talents. I can't wait! Oh, and P.S… you should write at 11pm more often 😉

    Summer has been way to busy. I am waiting for school to start, so I can have my routine back. And hopefully get some sewing time back. Too many fun things to do, and not enough time in the summer.
    Can't wait to see what you have up your sleeves! LOVE the toddler backpack. So cute!
