Where have I been you ask?

Okay, nobody asked that.

Actually that's not true...my grandma called from Florida and asked me why haven't I updated our blog in forever. I knew someone missed us. Thanks Nana! :)

We have been busy! Nothing very exciting or anything, just busy. And enjoying life. And enjoying the Spring like weather that we have been having. The snow is almost all gone around here. It's been great, we have been able to go out walking and bike riding for the past couple weeks. Right now it's actually thunder storming. I love thunderstorms.

Also, I broke my computer. :( I just grabbed the screen (why would I do that??) and the thing cracked right down the middle. My friend asked how Matt felt about that and he said, "I'm thrilled" but obviously she couldn't hear the sarcasm in his voice. :) Actually he didn't mind too much, we have had that thing for almost 7 years which has to be some kind of record. So anyway we knew we would be getting a new one sooner or later. We were able to get everything backed up onto our external hard drive before the whole thing died, thank goodness!! We still haven't gotten everything put onto my new computer though, I'm dying to look at my kids baby pictures...like I do way too often...because I like to torture myself like that.

In other news, the kids and I have been staying at my parents house for about a week and a half while they are on vacation. You see, I have a little sister and she just can't be trusted alone. Just kidding, she is an angel...yes, after 7 kids they finally got a good one. I'm kidding again, they have two good ones. :) We go home during the day but have been hanging out there at night. I am SO excited to be home and sleep in my own bed though and be with Matt again. We have been seeing him before we leave at night but it's not the same. The kids don't mind though, Alexa loves anything that has to do with Gramma so even just using "Gramma's potty" gets her all happy. :)

Other than all that it's been the same old stuff. Matt is working hard and getting ready to graduate. The kids and I have been having lots of play dates with our friends and I have even been able to sneak out a couple times with the girls.

I feel like life is just going really fast lately, anyone else? I can't wait until Summer is here and Matt can take some time off and we can go on some mini vacations to just relax and enjoy being together!!

I miss the bloggy world and hope to be back soon!
With pictures of course. :)
Hope everyone is doing well and having a wonderful week!!

Life really is busy right now!!! I am having a hard time visiting everyone's blogs and writing my own post everyday. I try to atleast write a post everyday but that has been hard lately.

I am glad to hear that you guys are all doing good. Amazing how something as minor as sleeping at Gramma's (even when she is not there) can make our children happy :o)

Have fun and know that we miss you!!

Stephanie said...

Awww. We didnt all forget you.

I have to admit Ive been a bum as far as my blog goes as well- life is SO hectic!

Im glad your kids are getting some grandparent time. Its so precious- ours live too far away to get that.
Even better you get a probably much needed break- enjoy!

It must be spring fever! I've been doing the same thing. I've claimed myself to be a lazy blogger, but I've mostly been cleaning and playing with the kids when I'm not playing Bejeweled Blitz!

Sarah and the Gentlemen said...

Isn't Spring wonderful? Today is very springy here. The boys actually got their bikes out.

I think I may have to take a spring vacation from blogging too.

Kassie said...

Welcome back!! I love spring time!!

B-Dub said...

I have been asking myself where you've been! You, Dear Lady, are not allowed to take prolonged absences without prior notification. But just cause I miss you when you do!

Probably, you have forgotten all about me by now. I understand.

Kate said...

Thank you for the update! I have been missing you!

blueviolet said...

You've been missed! You really have!!! I'm glad all is well though and that it's just been absence due to a busy life!

Kathryn said...

He & Me + 3 said...

I wondered in the last post where you went. so glad you popped in to say hi. You have been missed! Can't wait to see pictures.

I was wondering when you were going to blog again...but I figured with a new computer and other stuff like being busy that you would be back soon!
Missed you.

Laura said...

Sorry to hear about the broken computer! But after 7 years, it seems you're due for a new one, anyway! ;) (MAC, MAC!)

I hear ya on mini vacations. We like to take a bunch of small vacations instead of big ones...I cannot WAIT for the nice weather! We've had 50's & 60's here lately, which is rare for March...sooo happy it's happening, though!

Lourie said...

So that's where you've been. Sorry your computer died, but I am glad you had the major stuff backed up.

Carrie said...

Just last night I was wondering where you had been. You have been missed. Glad to hear that all has been well. We are loving this Spring like weather as well. So happy to see the snow melting before my eyes. Can't wait till you're back in full swing :)

Sonya said...

I was wondering why you were staying at your parents! When you tweeted that earlier I was confused. ;)

Julie said...

How much do I love that your grandma asked why you are not updating your blog. Super cool Grandma.

Cop Mama said...

Yay, you're back! Have a good weekend, my friend :-)

Jen said...

Hey...I did miss you! Glad that all is well, I have cut back in my computer time also...Just sneek on at night (most nights) after my girls are in bed. Well, that and with 2 kids with homework, we all "fight" for computer time, and well, homework comes first. Glad you are hanging out with you little sister! Miss picutres of the kids, sorry to hear about your computer!

Bethany said...

So glad to see you back! I didn't do much with blogging for a few days, so I missed this! (And after I was pestering you to blog again! :)

Now you've got me wishing for a laptop to break! :) I really want to get one, but it seems a little impractical right now. :)
