We'll start with the busy. It's the end of the school year and all you moms and teachers out there know how crazy that is. There are projects and tests and field trips and parties and all sorts of other nonsense (times two!--I keep trying to remind myself to enjoy it because next year it will be times three!). Tonight I realized that one of Jake's school projects fell through the cracks--it was due today (Monday) and we haven't even started it yet. Let's hear it for awesome mom organization! Sigh.
The Negative Nancy moments are coming hard and fast right now. Jason is back on night shift. Night shift equals me spending several hours alone four nights a week. Me spending hours alone with only my own thinks to keep me company equals a whole lotta trouble. I wish that weren't the case, but it is. I'm trying to not bring all that to this space and that means that I am avoiding blogging in general right now. I'm working on some projects, though; hopefully I will be able to keep my brain gainfully employed very soon.
We also still have a couple of "not for the blog" type discussions going on. One in particular has been going on for about six months and we're about to hit critical mass with a decision. I know it's kind of a party foul to tease you with it--that really isn't my intent--but it's a huge part of why this space is so dark right now. We could use some positive thoughts and prayers about it if you are so inclined. I promise I will let you in on it soon, either way.
And that is my update for now. I need to get caught up on reading some blogs--I have been neglecting my bloggy friends! To make up for it I am going to have a giveaway this week. Stay tuned; I hope you will play along!
