The Five of Us, Spring 2014

The Five of Us, Spring 2014


Well, friends, I took a pregnancy test this morning--negative. Hear me breathing my somewhat reserved sigh of relief. Then, of course, my period started this afternoon. Hear me breathe a real sigh of relief! Aaaahhhh! I'm quite happy to not add anything else to my plate at the moment!

It seems like I've been really busy lately. I can't tell you what I've been doing--it's not that I don't want to, it's just that I don't really know. And now I'm in preparation mode for the In-law Invasion on Tuesday. There's a lot to do ahead of time so we don't have to worry about it while they're here.

I'm so just blathering and not even about anything. My head's just not in it at the moment. Just wanted to let you all know I'm off the hook (for now!). I'll be back...sometime!

Children are a blessing!
That said, I know exactly how you're feeling :D
My big kids are all trying to convince us to have another baby. I told them, You understand the baby will be white, right? just in case they hadn't tho't that thru. LOL
Maybe 5 years from now. . .
For now Trojan is our friend.

Okay, so how many times have I been to your house in the past week, and you failed to mention this tidbit!? Notice the time stamp here, this is the only time I GET at the computer these days - unless I'm at your house. ;-)

Ah my friend, I do believe your time will come again. But have to agree for now it's one baby at a time!

Love from your self-absorbed stressed out friend...

Talk To Me

I blog for myself and my kids and I would do it even if no one else cared, but I do like to hear from you (and think it's a wee bit creepy of you to voyeurize us without my knowing it). So, please leave a comment from time to time, or email me anytime at Much obliged, I'm sure.
