I've been quite absent lately from the blogosphere, but it's neither for lack of action around here, or lack of desire to keep people updated. Actually, as my dear husband knows all too well, when I get overwhelmed I do the worst thing possible: I stop dead in my tracks, paralyzed. If a task seems too daunting, or a situation too much to process, I tend to just freeze and do nothing. Yes, I know, if I did ANYTHING it would be way more productive. I realize that, and I've been slowly working on the issue for years. But I think I've been a little overwhelmed by our life lately, so I'm going around in circles trying to make improvements here and there.
The biggest events have been a combination of baby Garfield's first birthday celebrations, mixed in with weeks of house repairs, mixed in with major "nesting" projects that seemed to all get underway at once. Oh, and Garfield went back on his own on Monday with Texas Greenscapes, as the merger we'd taken part in wasn't as much of a match as we'd hoped. And MOPS started again, which is a big deal when you're on the Steering Committee. And we've been obsessed with Dave Ramsey and his Total Money Makeover/Debt Snowball. And we finally took the plunge and started E-baying. And I've sorted through, oh, maybe 10 big bins of childrens' clothes, trying to get moderately organized before the baby arrives. And our downstairs floors are about to be ripped up and replaced. I could go on, but I don't want to bore you any more than I already have. It's all just life, really, but it seems like life has been a little, well, fuller lately.
So there you have it. I suppose rather than elaborating on all these events, I'll post some pictures of Garfield's birthday and Emma's first day back at MOPS.
