Checking Back In

So it has been over a month since I last posted.  I honestly don't know what caused such a lengthy break.  There have been little snid-bits of extra happenings but nothing that would typically issue a month long hiatus but obviously it did.  So I hope that me "checking out" for a little while hasn't caused all of you to check out completely and that you might just consider revisiting my typical ramblings and thoughts. So here are a few of the latest happenings, random thoughts, or whatever floats my boat right now:


  • My little man turned 4. What, he is halfway to 8?  When did this happen?  It is amazing how quickly time passes by.
  • This week we have had a house full of sickies.  In fact right now I am missing church with my little one fast asleep.  Cold, cough, fever, and a handful of teeth coming in does not make for a happy munchkin.
  • I think I have been experiencing heartburn.  I have never had heartburn before so I am still in the figuring out stages.For all I know it may be something completely different.  Either way, not fun.
  • I need to go to the temple. Our temple is closing soon for renovations and I have been slacking as of recently.  The talks today in our Sacrament meeting were a great reminder of where my priorities should be.  It is time to reevaluate and get my priorities straight.
  • I love playing basketball.  I played in high school and have been playing stake ball lately and boy does it do something for me.  So fun!
  • I started reading (aha, my absence is clearer now) again.  I just finished reading the Chronicles of Narnia and quite enjoyed them.  I realize now that when the children were in bed instead of typing my thoughts here I would end up devouring several chapters in anticipation of what was going to happen next.  I started them at the beginning of January and flew through them.  I had forgotten how much I love to enter a different world through reading and my "ME" Time has been great for this.
  • I have become a crazy coupon lady and have found that Rite Aid is my friend.
  • My upcoming lesson in Relief Society is going to be on Charity.  I have already learned some new things and will be sure to share as more unfolds.
My little one is stirring and starting to cry.  Must be off.

It was good to talk to you today. :) I love your blog. So many great ideas! I hope your little one feels better. She looked so sad this morning. :( Thanks for stopping by my blog, and good luck with your books! You'll have to keep me updated if you hear anything. :)

Missed you. Glad you're back. I started playing Stake Basketball too, and it is fun, even though I'm always sore the next day. :)
