A quicky!

…no, not that kind of quicky! Get your mind out of the gutter (or I guess I should get mine out).

A quick post/update on me! 😉

I am sure I am not alone in being very behind in the following of and commenting on the blogs that I typically read and support. I think this time of year, the end of summer, comes fast and there just aren’t enough hours in the day to fit everything in. Anyway, I was really quickly trying to catch up or at least check in on some of you and your blogs (I am not done yet) when I came across a recent post from Kym. She talked about how behind she felt with the blogs she usually follows and invited her readers to share with her what was new, in case she didn’t get to their recent posts soon enough. I felt compelled to comment and then realized that you might also like to get a brief synopsis of what’s up with me and my family. So I shared that I am/my life is…

Crazy busy and over programmed as usual! Just back from a family vacation and trying to settle back in, unpack, etc. I didn’t think about Molly a lot on vacation, just enjoyed the days away w/ Bob and Sean, but as soon as I got home I was reminded of what has happened with our family and that can be kind of harsh sometimes. My newest niece was also born one week ago today! We are so happy and excited, but it is also a bit bittersweet as she and Molly would have been so close in age. So that’s my update… I gotta get back to housework, like the good SAHM that I am or at least try to be…

I have been waiting to blog until I had something more substantial to share and time to compose it, however I am not sure how soon that will be, therefore I thought a drive by post would be better than none at all. I hope that you and your loved ones are doing well and enjoying this home stretch of summer!

P.S. Did anybody catch the USA Men’s 400 relay competition during the Olympics last night?! Bob and I watched it together just before we went to bed and it was so awesome to see them win the gold, especially after all the trash talking the French team had done! GO USA!!!

P.P.S. Feel free to share here (through commenting) what is new with you, your life and/or how you are handling the end of summer rush! You all are in my thoughts and prayers, as always.

I think of C much less when we go on vacation. I seem to smile more, live in the moment better, and generally have an okay time. It’s as though I give myself permission to leave the grief at home, and I can be, totally unencumbered by the heartache I feel when I’m at home. Makes me want to go on vacation permanently. Seriously.
