Cheap Lotto!

So the other day my Little One was standing on the toilet watching me brush my hair and amusing herself when all of a sudden she decided to investigate the shiny silver lever on the side of the toilet tank. It wiggled, it jiggled, it was great fun! Before long she figured out how to flush the toilet and as soon as she heard the whooshing of the water she threw both hands high up in the air and shouted, "Yay! Hailey Won!!"

Hey, cheaper than airfare tickets to the slots in Vegas!

Spring is coming!

Well, it's only been a week--that's progress for me! DD2 was home from school for 4 days this week--well, really only 3 and 3/4 days because she went to school on Wednesday and came home pretty early in the morning feeling ill. It was a long week, but a good one as it started out great with a night out; a good friend and I went to the mall for a little window shopping, I got my hair done and we grabbed a bite at my favorite mall eatery: Auntie Anne's! Tuesday night kept the mood going strong with another night out for me--this one was a quiet night of quilting with friends. I'm learning to piece blocks together with a few great gals and getting to know more about them and their families in the process. It was SO relaxing and great fun. The rest of the week has gone by in a bit of a blur, but I know that it did include a family movie night complete with take-out.
To top it all off, Saturday was a great day. Sunny and warm (and when I say warm I mean NY warm: a balmy 49 degrees) were on the menu and I think we all had a generous helping. I'd like to you and say that we even went on a picnic but it was more like we sat in the van and ate so that we could enjoy the sunshine without getting a chill from the breeze.
And now, I'm off to Rite-Aid to pick up some sort of drugs to intervene in my toddler's troubling case of constipation. Lord knows that child eats enough prunes but she's blocked up somewhere and I'll spare you the details but we're all suffering from her bowel distress. :)

Trying to get back into the pool.

I can say without hesitation that this year has been so hard for me to find the time to sit down at the computer and blog. Life has been going by at a whirlwind pace and I feel like I've just been letting myself get carried away with little distractions here and there.

For a while I've felt that I couldn't sit down and blog without offering up an explanation for my absence... so I procrastinated in sitting down to write up my excuse. The simple reason for my delay was that there really wasn't any excuse--I've just been out of sorts. So now, without any pretense, I'll offer to you--my few and humble readers--my apologies for being so absent. I've taken the first step on the road to recovery, I've dipped my toes in the pool to test the temperature and I hope to back and blogging on a much more regular basis from now on.

Cheers to you all!
