Ah, I've really been gone for awhile. It's not that I haven't been thinking about the blog because I have, but I've been busy and in a bit of a funk. We have very exciting changes coming up but that doesn't make them easy.
We're moving back to Texas! In just a couple of weeks, actually, and I've only gotten 20 boxes packed. And Gus is pretty upset about leaving his best friend. And Abe thinks he's helping if he tosses one toy in a box and then tries to insist that it be immediately closed up. And I'm still competing in Sock Madness (just moved through to Round 6 after finishing 5th overall and 1st in my group for Round 5). And and and and. I could go on, but it would only get (more) boring. Moving is hard even when you are excited about where you are moving to.
Also I'm starting to think about finding a job, which I want and need to do, but which will also be a big change for the family.
I still am operating on Chris' old laptop while all my photos and other stuff are on the desktop upstairs that he is using for his work these days. It won't be until sometime later this summer that I get to have all that back again and that also makes it harder for me to update.
Anyway, all to say that I may continue to be absent more often than not for just a bit longer but I swear I will be back once the dust settles a bit.
