Dusting Off The Cobwebs!!! Echo...Echooo...choo...oo!!! I am Ba-ack! After a little over a year of a blog break. I am back! I will not be posting daily but my goal is to at least post once a week. I didn't take a break because my boys quit being funny, or life quit happening, or I became Amish, I just couldn't figure out how to balance working full time and being, mommy, wife, Relief Society counselor, maid, cook, scout taxi....While "we were on a break" (I know you just had a FRIENDS flashback) I thought many times, "Oh, I should blog that!" but then I would go on with my day and by the time kids were tucked in I was tuckered out! JC and I were having a talk about finding joy in our lives and finding what activities we enjoy doing because life has fallen into a very predictable, very boring rhythm of sleep, eat, work, eat, work, nag boys, eat, repeat and I was feeling trapped and frustrated and I was taking it out on JC. JC asked what I really enjoy doing, while I was thinking on it a few things came to mind. First was that I enjoy eating cooking, but not the 30 pounds I have gained. Second I enjoy running, but not the sore knees. I enjoy reading, and I have been doing a lot of it but still feel no relief from the frustration. The more I thought on it the more I realized I needed to write, I enjoy writing. I have an outlet for my sarcasm, I have a record to be used as blackmail, I have a record to look back on when I miss the little boys that are quick becoming little men, I have an excuse to be crammed into our tiny little, hot, stinky office with my four boys and my man who continues to startle me every time he randomly screams at his computer, did I mention it stinks in here? (Note to self, figure out how to blog from your phone, and remember to be thankful for WiFi)  I know I may have lost a lot of readers over the last year I hope you all find your way back.  I will try not to be a flake blogger anymore. I feel like I should say, Forgive me blog world for I have sinned, it's been 13months since my last blog. 

Seriously, someone find some air freshener!

Some funny things that have been said that I actually wrote down to blog but never did...

Rub:  It's hot in here!
Me: That's because you're so cute.
Rub: Not that kind of hot.  I mean sweaty hot.
Me:  What other kind of hot is there?
Rub:  The kind where you do this, *puts one hand on his hip and the other behind his head and winks*
Oh my!

At Christmas time...
Rub:  Mom I want a baby sister for Christmas.
Me:  Really?  Is that what you are going to ask Santa for?
Rub:  Yeah, or maybe we could just go to the orphanage and see what we can pick up.

On our way to church...
Rub:  That truck is going slower than a snail.
Dub:  Uh Rub, it's a Ford.

See you next week!  Same time, same place!

Love that you are back...and I wanna join you! As soon as school is out I'm catchin' up baby! :) we can be blog buddies again. I am worried because google reader is gonna be discontinued in July and I don't know how I'm gonna read the blogs now. I'm on a hunt for something new.
