Still here!

Hi world.

I'm still here.

Just have a lot of stuff on my plate right now. Wondering how other busy moms find the time to write on their blogs.

I was in a time crunch to finish a bunch of stuff for a baby shower a couple of weeks ago. Got everything done by the night before... a crocheted afghan and a bunch of cute little beaded socks.

Busily planning a joint birthday party for Cecilia (just turned 8) and Nicholas (turning 6 in a couple of weeks). It's the first birthday party I've planned in 10 years, as the kids usually choose to do other stuff for their birthdays... we always give them the option - "You can have a birthday party, or you can _______." Fill in that blank with "go to Chuck E Cheese, go horseback riding, go minigolfing, go out to dinner, etc." and the kids for the most part pick to do something other than have a party. So, I've been planning for this party for the last month. Rented a bounce house. Bought decorations. Cleaned up the back yard as it gets neglected over the winter months. And now? a 70% chance of rain on Saturday. Heaven help me, I'm going to have to host this thing inside and plan party games for a bunch of Kindergarteners and 2nd graders.

I have a bunch more projects to work on after this weekend. I am NOT letting myself start anything else until this is done with. I need to make at least two more baby afghans, and finish up my 12 preemie hats challenge from last year... I petered out half way through that.

I don't really want to even look at my 2009 Goal List. I have a feeling I failed miserably on it.

Until later....
