Just a few random thoughts here. I’m sorry I’ve been an absentee sort of blogger lately. It’s a combination of a blogging blahs and being busy. But not an exciting busy, a running with the kids busy. Not a ton of photos to share either. I need a little reboot I think.
We’re in the full swing of back to school here. A ton of activities and social events ahead. Which make for fun days, but not much blogging. I really need to find out how to block copying on my photos so that I would feel more comfortable posting the kids’ pictures. THEN you would see pictures! You’d be begging me to stop. And as busy as my kids are, they are not in nearly as many activities as some of their friends. How do people do it all?
We did get a fire pit, and the kids had fun making marshmallows and then s’mores. We were thinking of getting a gas one, and those really cool colored glass pieces instead of the gas logs. But then we priced it out and thought we’d try a regular one first (less than $70) and see how much we use it before we invested thousands. (The pits are expensive, the glass is expensive, and then we would have to run the gas line underground.) So far, that would be once. Plus, with the gas kind, you can’t move it. It becomes a permanent fixture.
In other news, I got an award from the lovely Deb at Paper Turtle recently, and I will share that as soon as I get my act together a little. Thanks Deb – you really are the sweetest!
And finally, today is the day my baby goes back to horseback riding. She was so excited, and now she is so scared and isn’t sure she wants to continue. As much as the mom in me says, “Don’t do it. It’s safer on the ground,” I also know how much she loved it. So please say a little prayer for my baby. That she finds the strength inside to get back something she loved. If nothing else, that strength is something important to take with her as she grows. Thank you.
Update: She did it! Reluctantly, crankily, perfectly!
