hanging around.

Hello, lovelies. So, miracles do happen... I've got some time for blogging tonight. My most excellent honey has taken the kids away for the evening, and I can actually hear myself think. I just felt like dropping in this evening to let you all know I'm still around! But seriously, though? Quite obviously in the depths of a creative funk.

It happens to the best of us.

My little sidekicks have been keeping me busy lately. Want to see them? Here:

Yup, hanging around.

That hair!

I digress.

I've had some pretty great things happen to me in the last few weeks, and a healthy dose of lame things, as well. Great = I was asked to co-lead the most awesome Bible study with a most awesome group of ladies from my church. Lame = I wound up in the ER with pneumonia one night, followed hot on the heels by Seth's fifth birthday (which, for the record, he spent hugging a porcelain deity... icky stomach virus!).

These days, I struggle to get Seth out of bed in the morning- he kicks and screams, and I can't blame him. Bedtimes aren't seamless, either, and by the time the kids finally pass out, I'm semiconscious and cranky.

Mommy's "me time" happens only a few times a week lately, and only when Seth is in school and Hawk is strapped into the carseat. Between 9:30 and 10:00am, I grab a book and a travel mug of coffee and we go for a ride. I wait until he's asleep, then I pull into a church parking lot and sit in the shade with a book on my lap and coffee in hand. #sneakymomtactics

So, that's pretty much the content of my life lately. Not much to see here, folks! What have you been up to?
