I did not anticipate taking quite as long a break from blogging as I did. Once I was out of the loop, it seemed really hard to come back. But I do miss it. So let me fill you in quickly on what has been going on.
I took a two week trip to visit my family. The kids loved it. I missed Pat, but it was great to be around so many other people that I love. After two weeks away, coming back to TN was a bit overwhelming for all of us trying to hop back into the "normal" schedule. At least this week is spring break for Ryan, so it's allowing us to slowly get back into the swing of things.
Speaking of spring, apparently I missed that in the two weeks I went away. I left wearing a sweatshirt, and now it's full fledged summer weather and temps around here. I can put away all our winter stuff, we won't be needing that. I don't like that about TN. I prefer to ease into Summer since it is my least favorite time of the year. I like that we can play outside now, but it seems to be just a matter of time before it is too humid, hot, buggy, and just gross out there.
I'm 28 weeks pregnant. I'm bigger than a house. I'm not one of those tiny girls that says that and annoys everyone. I've been gaining lots of weight this time around. You would think by the third one you would work harder at self control, but I just seem to be putting on the lbs no matter what. I like to pretend that carrying a girl is different than it was with my boys, but really I'm probably just getting fat.
But the best news that has happened since I've been gone is that I became an aunt again--and this time X 2!!!! My sister and her husband welcomed perfect boy/girl twins yesterday. I am beyond thrilled for them and cannot wait to meet the babies.
I have a few photos and recipes or things that I want to share, but I'll have to work on that this week. Also there may be news about a move in my future too.
