The Third Claim of Being "Back"

I have totally stunk at posting lately, I don't know what my problem is...I think I am having some brain issues...my husband is smirking, I can see him with my "back-of-head eyes" And he ought to be careful because I will smack him with my "front-of-body angry hand"!

It isn't that I haven't had things to blog about, oh you have to know that with Henry, and the girls, I have had no lack of material...

I have gone to my sons "circus" to find that lo and behold, the boy likes to take center stage, even if it means sneaking out during every "act" and waving, or shoving someone out of the way to get center stage. Let’s just say that I had tears streaming down my face by all the times that he got the hook! It was something similar to the Muppet Show and Gonzo. I was worried the other moms would be upset, but it seems that Henry has a nack for making people laugh...while I crawl under my seat...

He has started using the potty for something other than peeing and his personal recording studio...which is just OH SO exciting...but those of you who may have followed me for awhile, may know my hate-hate relationship with my sons bowels and underwear...

I have started my garden, getting in peas, lettuce, radishes, beets, onions, swiss chard, potatoes, carrots...and started indoors some other things. We will just see how it goes, as you may or may not know, I am the most pessimistic planter of all time. I plant seeds knowing that they will never grow or produce anything, and when they haven't sprouted in the 2 hours that I allotted for them I throw myself into a tizzy of despair...only to find that at the end of the summer I have a bounty that I have to can, freeze and eat until I am ready to explode...let me tell you, it is an exhausting process I put myself through.

I finished…almost a sweater for my dear Justine blogging buddy’s new baby boy, only to have to pull the entire thing out (after having a terrible mis-read with the pattern) with a sting of expletives coming out of my mouth, only to be repeated by Henry in the grocery store the following day. I was proud though, my skin is getting thicker to the disapproving head shaking from the Sweater Set Moms, who pull out their antibacterial to clean their kids off after hearing Henrys rant. (Thank goodness it was before the in-laws came!)

AND I finished TWO (I know, I am like, Super Word Girl!) books. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society and Unwind. Very different, but both I could not put down and I avoided life for a few days to finish them…

So there is my quick catch up on the ins and outs of my oh so exciting life…because, I know how much people were worried…HA…

Here is to getting back on track, (and treadmill) the hiatus from the real and virtual world I live in must end! (I believe that this is the 3rd time I have claimed to come back from the dead...I think I may be a cat...)

Please keep blogging! I am an outdoors maniac, married to a likeminded crazy woman, and we are expecting our first child. I really enjoy your sense of humor and since I basically have no experience with children whatsoever, I....sadly....am probably learning some excersises in patience by reading your tales.

Why Swamp Thing, I don't know what to say other than, you may want to check your temperature! I don't think that patience and my name have ever been in the same sentence! lol. Thanks so much for the much needed compliment.
