Spring is finally HERE

There is something awesome about having kids that are old enough to run in and out of the house, shouting out "I'll be at my friend's house!" before they slam the door. Granted, this age also means that there are usually just as many extra kids inside MY house as ones I have birthed, but I'm ok with that. The noise volume is definitely cranked up when that happens, but it's a price I'm happy to pay for the hours of absolute SILENCE when they're all outside.

Naturally, as soon as I sat down to type this, my 3 plus 2 spares came in from the beautiful outdoors to muck up the house. Sigh... I totally jinxed myself, didn't I?

That said, it is GORGEOUS outside! About 55 and sunny, sunny, sunny! We have so many outside plans for the upcoming weeks and I cannot WAIT to get rid of this winter pallor that March always bestows upon my face. Yikes. I am pale and look just... unhealthy. Gimme some Vitamin D!

I haven't felt the writing bug lately. I mean, I've written, but it's just not... good. It's not. I hesitate to proclaim that I am on a "bloggy break" because I'm NOT but I am definitely on a "blog staycation." Meaning I'm here, but not at work. Yeah, A Blog Staycation. Present but not performing. I wonder; if I had a laptop that I could bring out into the sunshine, would I want to write more and write with FEELING? Eh. I am kind of blah about that, one way or the other.

I am jealous of your weather.

I mean, I guess ours isn't bad, it is 54, but the wind is nuts so it doesn't make it fun to be outside.

Oh my god. That happens? They just leave the house on their own some day? And you don't have to follow them around wiping their butts and offering snacks? Can I dare to dream?

Enjoy that nice weather!

We're in Ohio this week for spring break, where we have been treated to temps in the mid-30s and some non-sticking snow. Boo!

I'm out of my blogging groove right now. I have all kinds of post ideas, but when I sit down to write, I'm just not feeling it. Frustrating because I so love putting posts out there.

Enjoy the sunshine!

I'm jealous of your independent (at least with respect to play) kids. I absolutely won't mind the spares.

Blog staycation? Is that what we're supposed to call it? Because I'm in the same "meh" boat.

If only we were in the same boat- we could celebrate spring with cocktails!

I wonder how you got so good. This is really a fascinating blog, lots of stuff that I can get into. One thing I just want to say is that your Blog is so perfect!
