I swear I am alive

I know I haven't blogged since July but I swear I am alive. I no longer feel like a Mommy-blogger, now that my kids are older. I mean, it's one thing to blog about potty training but puberty? Yeah, not sure my kids would ever forgive me for that!

So much has happened since the amazing trip to NYC. As soon as I got back, swim season ended and we picked my son up from a 3 week long trip with my parents. No sooner had we returned than we packed everyone up and went to up north to visit family. School began three days after we got back! And a week later, Engineer Husband had surgery! Oh, a week after THAT, I began coaching again.

Just as I began hoping everything would settle down, we've had an upheaval at work and things are crazy again! My car is currently requiring major $$$ in repairs. I want to DNR the thing but EH says a new car would be more expensive. I'm not seeing it but hey.

On the writing front, I'm using my free time in the morning to edit my book... again. I'm printing it off in bits and pieces, hand editing and then I'll go back a fix it in the computer. I've edited it plenty of times straight from the doc but I think hand editing is going to have to be my final go-to. It's old skool but it works for me.

My sister reminded me I need to get on making Christmas crafts. I wanted to make some super cute bird ornaments but I don't think I'll have the time. I may make their St. Nicholas PJ's though!

Okay, yeah, and I'm also using the time to catch up on my shows on Netflix. I do this while folding laundry. Laundry. Yeah. :)

Speaking of Mt. WashMore....
