I haven’t posted in almost 8 months! Want to know why?
Here is my seven quick takes of excuses for being to busy to blog.
We are pregnant with baby #3. When this bundle of joy arrives I will have been blessed with three children under the age of three. This pregnancy has been exhausting and when I have free time I sleep…not blog..haha
My only brother (finally!) got married this summer. He got engaged the month after I did…needless to say he has some catching up to do. The wedding was beautiful despite me crying through my reading. That is why my husband is the one that reads things in church and I don’t.
How could I resist NOT putting a photo in of the ceremony? They were married in a Roman Catholic church.
Since it was my only sibling getting married I went all out and got my hair done, bought a fancy dress and got a manicure. It was lots of fun but I’m glad that it doesn’t take me 5 hours to get ready every day!
My husband got a job promotion. Which is such a HUGE blessing in that he gets to teach what he loves AND we get a little more $$ which helps when you live on one income. That being said he also works more, which means I work more. Another reason why blogging has not been on my radar lately.
I’m teaching an iconography club at my husbands school again this year. It’s lots of fun to teach the kids about our Eastern Christian traditions through icons! I have been preparing all kinds of fun field trips and hopefully there will be as good of a turn out as there was last year.
I am trying to potty train my son…isn’t that excuse enough for being to busy to blog..haha. Anyone with potty training advice is very welcome to pass it on. My son is of the variety of man that “likes to sit” in his mess. (he told me so!) It has not been easy to convince him it is in his best interest to lose the diapers, even bribery has fallen short. I am CONVINCED that this is the LAST month I will buy him pull-ups. Two weeks to go, pray for me..and him!
I’m reading a new book! It’s called Rediscover Catholicism by Matthew Kelly. It’s really great, especially if you are (or know) a lapsed Catholic that could use a little boost in their faith and authenticity (don’t we all!). It’s been a nice quick read before I hunker down for some more serious academic reading prescribed to me by a good friend. Wish me luck, I am not the academic reading type usually. I enjoy quick reads about family, kids, childbirth, domestic church. Reading about the history of the liturgy is going to take some discipline. But Matthew Kelly talks a lot about the need for discipline in his book..so maybe it was a good one to start with :)
Have a great weekend and head over and say “hi” to Jen and www.conversiondairy.com!
