I could sit here and tell you that we have been doing homeschool work, which we have and with much struggle and very little to show for it. Learning how to read it turns out is harder than it looks.
I could also sit here and tell you that my computers are a decade old and until recently I wasn't sure if I would be able to turn it on with any reliability and now it turns on, but it's still a decade old.
I could sit here and tell you that for over a month I have had some kind of bizarro leg dysfunction that has been treated for shingles, cellulitis, allergy to drugs for cellulitis, and is currently awaiting results as to whether or not it may be suffering from Lyme disease. Do you see how I have become detached from my leg? I figure if it's going to go off and do things like that for such an extended amount of time, it no longer wants to be associated with me. Fine by me, just leave already.
I could tell you that our daughter has been having some yelling problems and seems to stamp her foot an awful lot, along with slamming of doors and oh yeah yelling.
I could tell you that things are hoping along at the church and some weeks it seems that we spend more time walking through the front doors of St. Tim than our own.
I could tell you all these things and more, but they would just be excuses as to why I have not been here writing and we all have them. We all have those reasons as to why something that we love and enjoy doing and get a lot of really good stuff from we just don't do. I wish I could say that I feel renewed and committed and that I am going to be writing more, but I still have too many excuses. Why even while writing this, Hannah went into melt down mode. Sometimes things just don't work out for mom's the way they want them to and part of what makes us a mom is that we adapt and move on with it. So I guess for now, my grand desires to share about home arts will be sporadic at best and absent at worst. Book reviews will come and go, as reading seems to be the one constant in my life, but even that has been difficult to enjoy this past month and half. So feel free to peruse the archives and send me an email if you like, and I hope to post again soon, but I just have so many excuses...
