I can always tell when it has been too long between posts because the spammers take over my comments!
I still have no computer, I can borrow my kids' computer, but I tend not to bother. I have really felt little urge to have anything to do with the internet. I occasionally check facebook or twitter from my phone, but I haven't even read email in weeks. It is difficult to weed out all the spam from the real emails on the little screen of my phone, so I have basically given up.
Today I decided that it was about time I reconnected. I apologise if you have tried to get a hold of me and have been unable. I will try to get through as much as I can today and throughout the week. I miss my internets!
Life is progressing as usual around here. Kids growing like weeds, my teenager is about to hit 6 feet and my baby is walking. My little Girly is a big 4 year old now, and not my baby anymore. My 5 year old Monkey, on the other hand, is still my baby, and that is the way we both like it. The little three still end up in my bed occasionally, so my sleep is not that much better. On the flipside, Baby Zed is regularly sleeping through the night and will go down for a nap now, even if I put him to bed awake. Yea!
In fact he is napping right now and it is glorious! Well it would be if my 11 and 14 year olds weren't fighting with each other and then huffing and puffing at me. I am in desperate need of a break. If only they would go for a nap.
We are back at renovating, my hubby seems to have got bitten by the bug and progress if finally being made. We took out another wall, and are finally in the process of putting back together. Mudding and taping of the drywall is happening. I have a kitchen plan. I am choosing my finishes! I am so excited about my new kitchen and flooring, I can envision it all in my mind - room to store all our groceries; the ability to open the dishwasher and the stove at the same time; my new patio doors opening onto my huge deck; baby not getting slivers on his toes and knees from plywood floors; baby not finding and eating a hacksaw that his Dad forgot to put away after last nights work... Glorious!
Here we all are, squinting into the sun at my sister's wedding:)
Happy summer all.
