Fantasia had a school project to do tonight for her Foods II class which was making dinner for our family. Somehow this meant that, despite her need for my constant instruction and presence in the kitchen, not only did we have a delicious meal complete with appetizer & dessert (as specified by the assignment) but also we ate earlier than normal. "Normal" for us is usually late. Sometimes ridiculously so. Which meant that I, in turn, had time to catch up on some seriously belated blog-reading. Specifically, my kick-trash sister, Katie, and my dear friend/idol/inspiration/blog-maestro, Lara.
Reading through several fabulous blog entries has inspired me to set a few blog and non- blog related goals: I want to blog more. Take more pictures. Find more humor in things that drive me out of my mind. Read more. Enjoy my kids more. Buy more cereal. Be home more. Be thin. Be inspiring.
Okay, so not all of those goals are realistic. But surely I can attempt to find a few quiet moments a month to catch up and to blog about the things that make me happy. And sad. And grateful to be alive.
(Watch for ... Lincoln's entire first 20 months of life, just as soon as I ask Karyn for the pictures...)
