I haven't fallen off the face of the earth.

I'm here - haven't had internet access until today. I'm on vacation with my family - we spent all day on the beach yesterday. It's been fabulous so far - I really miss it here.

Life has a tendency to get away from me. I feel like I'm in survival mode most days, having 3 boys here with me all day instead of just 2. It's amazing to me how much more food is eaten/laundry is used/messes are made when all 3 kidlets are here. Three children also require a BUTT TON more energy from me - I'm still adjusting to that.

Vacation is in 3 more sleeps - YAY! I'm not a fan of the 10 hour drive (one way), but it's nice bonding time with my husband and it's fun to play little games with the older boys while we're on the road. I'll get to spend some time at the beach, ON the beach, with family and friends. I'll get to watch my sweet nephew T play some baseball and I'll get to relax....I think we (especially my husband) need that part more than anything. We need the chance to get away from HERE. Away from the auto industry, more foreclosure signs than I care to ever see again, stress. As much as family drives me nuts sometimes, I'm thankful that we have a place to escape.

I'll be back soon with some baseball/tball tidbits AND a book review/giveaway.

Hope you guys enjoyed your weekend!

I'm tired.

Baseball and Tball are kicking my ass and I'm not even the one playing the games. I can only imagine how I'm going to feel when my boys are older and playing more than 1 sport.

It's hard for me to put into words how I'm feeling about the rest of what's going on in my life. I'm blessed - I have a good life and I don't take it for granted at all. We're all in desperate need of a vacation - time away from HERE, time to spend with each other and time to relax. There's so little relaxing around here - time is spent worrying about jobs and what's right for our family. I don't want to worry anymore. I want to dig my toes in the sand and watch my boys play on the beach. I'm tired of worrying.
