Helllllloooooooo - o - o - o - o

So. It's been a while, hasn't it? Is anyone still out there? Since I switched to a new blog back in what... July?... and then about two months later completely fell off the face of the blogosphere, only popping up to toast Jess and Torsten and to leave a total of about 5 comments scattered about, I'd be surprised if anyone is still hanging around. BUT, I take comfort in the fact that I and many others were too lazy to remove Tess's old blog or the mysteriously absent Flibberty from our readers so that when the two of them popped up again a few days ago after approximately the same length of absence, they still had readers.

A lot has happened (mainly with my kids, not me) during the past few months, but I'll get into that in a future post that I promise will happen pre-July. I need to upload some pictures and whatnot to illustrate, and my mother is arriving on Saturday, so it may be mid-January. I'll TRY to post some little things before then, but the big what's-been-happenings will show up then. In the meantime, if you're going to the Outback Bowl tomorrow, my oldest daughter (let's see what do I call her here... oh yes, Meg) will be playing alto saxophone on the field at halftime. OK, there will also be other kids from her marching band and some other high school marching bands, but I'm sure if you look closely, you'll see her.

Also, can you guess what one of the kids' gifts was this year?

OMG, it looks like the both of us disappeared and reappeared about the same time. Glad you are back. I have noticed that these blog friends have a tendency not to give up on us when we disappear. It gives me that warm and fuzzy feeling. So anyway, welcome back!

Hey! Good to see you back. Isn't there some sort of rule against giving kids drum kits?

Happy New Year!

I go away for a week and everyone comes back! I'll try not to take it personally.

Shelly said...

YOU'RE BACK!!!!! YAY! I was just thinking about you this morning because they were talking about Kawasaki syndrome on the radio (due to John Travolta's son).

J and J Acres said...

Welcome back!

I'm impressed that you're actually letting your kids play the Wii!

Somehow I didn't put your "new" blog in my reader thingy, so my apologies for being late to the party. But . . . Hi!
