Well my friends, I present to you the reasons I have not been blogging lately. I know after reading this list you will not only understand, but will also agree with my reasons.
Reason #1- Who has two thumbs and hoards all of our pictures? That guy! The tall one. Not the short one.
Meet the number 1 reason I don't blog as much. The bearded wonder not only takes all of our pictures, but he downloads them on his computer and deletes them off of the camera before I can blink twice. And then he won't give them to me until he has "worked on them." By the time I want to blog about, oh say my children's first day of school, 8 weeks have gone by. Blame J. Robert. Public enemy #1 to all bloggers.
Reason #2- The small creatures in my house actually want me to play with them.
It was lovely when they would sit in an excersaucer or on a play mat and could entertain themselves. Now they actually need me. A lot. And it is usually when I sit in front of my computer. And you know what? These years and fleeting and so I happily oblige. Computers and blogs will always be there. My kids will not.
Here are a few shots of the brave princess riding her valiant dragon off into battle. And please note that I stole the pictures from Public Enemy #1's computer before he could work on them in Photoshop. That's why the colors are off. Oh, well. I care not.
|The dragon vows to protect the princess at all costs.|
|The dragon got bored and wanted to play with the castle.|
|Then the dragon got sleepy, so King Daddy stepped in to save the day.|
|Movie nights in their recycled cardboard box train cars are a weekly ritual.|
Reason #3- Couponing. Y'all, I'm obsessed. I love it. I have saved my family SO much money. Which instead of going towards a trip to Disney World has all gone to new tires and a battery for our swagger wagon, but that's besides the point. Look at the pictures below and then think about the fact that I spent only
$25 for everything you see below.
A lot of it I got for free so I am giving it away to friends and also to an abused women's shelter. They are always in need of beauty supplies, so it feels so good to be couponing not only to save money, but to help others. I have also been able to donate a lot of canned goods to local food banks. But it definitely takes time and has hindered my blogging greatly.
Reason #4. Look at my computer. Just look at it.
It was already an old hand me down computer from my brother-in-law and then my son got a hold of it. Notice the missing keys. The tab key, the 'a' key, the underscore key, and a lot of the keys that do work stick now. I don't know what he did, but it does make typing almost too annoying to fool with.
And that's all she wrote. For now.
