Thanks for Giving Me Some Time

Hello all!

I just wanted to let you know that I am still here - and I will be getting back to posting.  It is just taking me some time to get things back together after the time spent in Orlando and now getting the baby settled in at home.  We have had several doctors appointments and we all know how difficult it is to get a new baby settled in for new parents, then throw in the scare of the NICU, and, well, it is just taking me longer than I thought.

Add this to the fact that, to be real honest, I just haven't been in the mood to post - all the stuff going through my head.   Then add trying to get the house back in order.  Mountain Man is a big help, but a housekeeper he is not (you know what I mean ladies?).  

I also haven't been real "creative" in the last couple of weeks - I just am not "feeling it" right now.  I guess you could say that I'm in a funk. I'm sure you all have been there - right?  I'm not alone in this, am I?  Come on guys, make me feel better -please?

I have posted lots of ideas from Pinterest and I really do want to get those "juices" flowing again - I'll get it together - 

"How soon?"


  (Who can name the movie those lines were in?)

Okay - 
enough complaining.  

I'm just asking that you hang in there with me - 

I'll be back 

sorry, another movie quote - 
(can anybody name that one?)  

With all new recipes, crafts, and DIY projects - there just might be a few ideas for a little one (and I know I still owe you pictures of the guest bathroom, I haven't forgotten!). 

Until then - 

let me leave you today with a picture of the reason I'm a little distracted.  

I think she is a beauty!

Hugs -

P.S. - I'd love to hear from you guys - 
let me know that you are still there.
After all, it's nice to know that someone is out there.
Just a little, "I''m here" could help inspire.


  1. I'm still here Mom. I read every post. And I think Lorelai is beautiful too.

    1. Thanks Crystal! I know you are there and I appreciate your reading everything - She is a beauty, isn't she? I haven't forgotten - I just haven't had the camera with me to take the photo's yet - but I will soon! Love you bunches!

  2. I'm still here too! And I've been in the funk, so don't worry, if you are not "feeling it". There are more important things in life than blogging.
    She is soooo cute, can't wait to be a Grandma eventually (but pssst, don't tell the kiddos)

    1. Hi Sue! Thanks so much for the sweet comment - and you are right there are many more things more important than blogging - and, in my case, she has ten perfect toes and fingers and the sweetest little button nose! I am going to spoil this little one so much, but I certainly understand what you are saying - I had to wait for quite a while (but who was counting) thanks for sticking with me!
      Hugs -

  3. I just nominated you for the Sunshine award on my blog! Head over to http://www.garagesalesrus.blogspot.com/ to see it! Hope you have a great day!


  4. I'm still here wrestling with our own little "worry" section while Daughter #2 recovers from 9 hours of surgery. Life is full of ups and downs and the downs seem to be winning the older we get. So enjoy those Ups whenever you can.

    Arnold in Terminator?

    1. Hey Donna - I know what you mean - sometimes the downs do seem to take over, but I'm too stubborn to let it get me down for too long! Hope your daughter is doing better and you are finally getting some rest. Yes, the second quote was Arnold in The Terminator - but how about the first one???

  5. Blog vs Baby? Of Course, baby wins every time by a mile. Have fun with her she is too adorable:) We will be here when you come back.

  6. COGRATS! I agree baby wins over blogging! She is precious.

    I have nominated you for the versatile blogger award. Check it out

    Have a great weekend.

  7. well I just found you & will be reading 'back' and look forward to the future......... congratulations! Baby wins!
