Back in Blogland

Been so busy lately, haven't been keeping up with blogging. To find out what I've been up to, check my daughter's blog at, hee-hee. We're taking the weekend off, thank goodness, for a much-needed break in the busy-ness of our lives. We were supposed to go to a beach bonfire today, and that would have been soooo fun! Unfortunately, the weather had different plans, and rain blew in last night. It's supposed to be rainy throughout tomorrow, and guess what? That's fine with me. Got a few things done around the house, spent some time together doing nothing, had dinner out--basically, it's been great being slothlike today. Tomorrow is my daughter's band practice, and it's a 45-minute drive, but we cancelled that too! Woo-hoo, we're on a roll. Actually, she seems to have a repetitive stress injury from practicing too much :) and I cancelled practice for her tomorrow. She's not happy, but knows it's best for her hand. She has a competition next Saturday, and needs to let it rest. Other than that, life was pretty slow today. Which is a good thing. We even ate dinner out, at our favorite Chinese restaurant. I've got a few things in the works, including hosting an 8-week ASL class in my home, and creating a homeschool preschool / kindergarten co-op with some other homeschooling families for my 4-1/2 year old. Lots of irons in the fire. I am truly blessed to live in an area with so much opportunity and culture. But on days like today, staying home and hunkering down in front of a fire is the best blessing.
