To a grieving family...

Thank you for the opportunity to attend his funeral and learn more about what a wonderful person he was.

May the sweet memories of a life well lived comfort you during the difficult times ahead.

We love you Tanya and Nathan! Our hearts and thoughts are with you.

The most horriblest day ever!

Today was going great. We got a big project approved at work, I got a lot of to-do's finished, etc. When I have days like that it always gives me motivation to get a whole bunch of things done at home as well. I was all excited to get home and work on some of the projects that have been plaguing me...

And then I got home...

And then the kids decided that they make up for the good morning I had...

The boy wanted to be held, A LOT...and would immediately start crying whenever I set him down.

Alyssa decided to take a stand against potty training and took it out on my carpet...literally.

McKenna just decided she's tired of her little sister hanging around her all the time and used her as practice for a promising career in boxing.

For example: As I was getting Liam out of the tub (have you ever tried to dress a crying and very wiggly child? Loads of fun I tell you...) I heard screams outside the bathroom door. Alyssa came in with a bright red cheek and big crocodile tears streaming down her face. McKenna had hit her because, according to the offender, "She was following me around." OH THE HORROR.

I sent Kenna to bed (with no bedtime story as punishment for hitting her sis) and as she was crying down the hall to her room she yelled in her best 'woe-is-me' kind of voice, "Today is the most horriblest day EVER!"

Yes. Yes it is.

Not really, but it felt like it.

Lest ye think...

...that I have fallen off the face of the earth, I am posting a quick note here to say that no, indeed I have not fallen off the face of the earth. It, instead, has decided to crush me with its entire weight for a short season.

I have at least a dozen started-but-not-finished posts. I have just been so overwhelmed by all the goings on of late that I haven't been able to read any blogs, let alone publish my own. Bear with me folks. Our house is a very crazy place to be right about now.

I have every intention of getting back to both the reading and the writing...but alas, I think it will be another week or two until I can catch my breath. We still have some major things coming up that will be, and have been, consuming a lot of my time and mental energy.

Just don't be surprised if one day you stop by only to find that there are a bunch of entries from a month ago that weren't actually published on the date listed at the top of the post.

The reason would have something to do with what paves the road to hell...
