Time just flies on by....

with or without me!

what has happened in the last month?
i don't even know what to blame for my absence of blogging...
and as you read on, i am NOT complaining, rather venting with a smile on my face because its "all just temporary..."

maybe i've been a bit busy with...

the girls finished their last month of preschool...
izzy now pronounces NO quite well and quite loudly...making any task with her a bit more challenging now...
maddie fell out of bed in the middle of a night tremor putting us in ER to get 7 stitches in her eyebrow at 1AM
mia got bit in the face by a neighbor's dog, a german shepard of all dogs - small bite but enough to make us all panic when the dog jumps her fence and appears out of nowhere...
the lakers have made it to the finals and lakers hold a lot of priority in this household
the dishwashwer broke a month ago and i've been handwashing dishes every day, 5 times a day, - ok, i may sound like a big brat, but wow is that a time consuming task with 5 people using dishes.
the washing machine broke and flooded the lower level of the house - dehumidifiers and fans are all that i seem to hear in my house at the moment,
we had a neighborhood garage sale and about an hour into the sale, i wrote EVERYTHING'S FREE on the chalkboard and watched people hound the stuff like it was a child's first Easter egg hunt...i was literallly too tired to count money and bargain with customers. just take it please.
what else?
my mom had foot surgery today and my dad has knee surgery on friday - and i live gazillion miles away and can't be of any help
a neighbor who foreclosed on their home let their two pet pythons loose in the neighborhood on their move-out day -- apparently we innocent neighbors had something to do with their foreclosure? one was found and captured, the other, well, we are all waiting to see who is the lucky one to encounter him!
i finally cleaned out that hazardous garage of mine thanks to my neighbor Kim who saves the day for me quite often - 5 years i have been wanting to clean that out -- we did an awesome clean out, created a toy room and craft area.
that clean garage is now worse than what it was before we cleaned it because everything that was in it was taken out or scooted around due to the water damage. good intentions.

so i do miss my blog. preschool ended today and the house should be getting back in order early next week, i pray, so hopefully a wee bit of time will open up for me soon to return to my blogging habit - i haven't been a writer or a reader lately. i will be back....


  1. Wow, you have been busy. I can relate to your dishwashing. We were without hot water for 7 and a half days. We had a hot water pipe leaking and it flooded my daughters room, so finally tomorrow we'll have her furniture back in there. It has been over a week and a half of having her stuff scattered all over the house while Servpro dried, painted, cleaned carpet, etc. I've been blogging more as a means of escape. Glad you are back!

  2. Oh my! I am SO sounds like you've been very busy to say the least...

  3. It sounds like LIFE has kept you from blogging and that happens! OMGoodness I hope someone else encounters the snake before you do! I just recently had ankle surgery and if you want to brave it you can see my post. I posted pictures today! I will pray for your mother because I know how hard it is and I don't have any family here! I'll even throw a good word in for your Dad! I hope you get back to blogging soon, I really enjoy what you have to say!

  4. Welcome back Jen! Sorry about all the crap you've had to deal with, and are continuing to deal with. But it's nice to see you posting again! If it makes you feel any better, looks like we're going to have to be relocated for at least a few days so that mold remediation people can open up our ceiling and remove mold! Just what I need with a 4-month old baby and 2 cats!

  5. Hang in there... summer is here! MIssed you, girl! xoxo Nancy

  6. Yowza girlie! The only thing I can relate to at the moment is the "NO" thing...LOL! Emma uses it quite frequently and loudly, and it often accompanies some screaming and throwing herself on the floor, just for good measure...which makes her a frequent occupant of time-out. :) I'll pray your summer settles down!


  7. Time does fly and life is way too busy sometimes. This summer you can hopefully take some time for R&R inbetween all the craziness of being a Mom and wife. Welcome back!

    Your freebie turned about fabulous!


admit it! comments make your day! i'd love to hear what you have to say!
