Well, they are both at school.
At this very moment one of them should be right in the middle lunch.
It was a good morning, although it wasn't void of wailing and clinging and tears.
But I'm good now.
I went to the gym with a friend, and then came home to clean, so I've kept busy. Which is good when your a tad bit weepy.
Speaking of busy...before I was a stay at home mom I had visions of lounging in front of soap operas and eating bon-bons. What ever happened to that?
No really, I'm not a soap opera fan. As a matter of fact my TV is never on during the day...but I used to be a HUGE General Hospital fan in high school and college. I totally could have used TiVO. It wasn't invented way back then, and my VCR wasn't trusty, so in college I would orchestrate my entire school schedule in order to be near a TV by 2pm.
Ok, sorry...that was like a really scary random memory from my head...what was I saying?
School. Yes. The kids are there and I am here drinking a smoothie and typing away at you. I have managed to get quite a bit accomplished this morning: the kitchen, the living room, and the bathrooms, are all clean and now I just need to finish my lunch, read some of your blogs and go get my little peeps (who aren't so little any more...when in the world did that happen!)
It occurred to me that this year will be my oldest's last year in elementary school...it seems like just yesterday I was hovering outside that kindergarten room. The principle literally patted me on the shoulder and told me to go home.
Oh the memories...I don't have any Kleenex in the house, and since I accidently forgot a few key items while shopping last week, we are rationing toilet paper...I can't waste it on nose blowing.
Let's talk about something happy.
Since I have managed to make every single birthday celebration (and subsequent present) late this year, it is appropriate that I missed my 3rd Bloggy Birthday on Saturday July 12th.
It is unimaginable that I have blogged for three full years.
It's on days like today, when I might be tempted to feel sorry for myself, that I am filled with joy over a community whom I dearly love. I was talking to a friend the other day and she said she thought that this blog was like a ministry. That surprised me. Especially since I had received two emails from different people saying the same thing...
(Oh here comes the weepiness again!)
I never really thought about this blog in that way, but I do believe that ministry is being who you are, where you're at...so I guess this qualifies.
I often find myself typing and wishing I could tell you these things face to face, but I will take what I can get...I am so grateful for the blogging community; both those who are just readers, but also those who are bloggers.
Thank you for reading and sharing your lives through this amazing thing we call social media. It truly makes my Sweet Life, that much sweeter!
La Vida Dulce!
