All I've Got Is A Photograph














 

Sorry for the long absences, friends and fellow denizens of the internet. Turns out kids take up a lot of time. Who knew? Sure as hell not me. If you'd asked me before Sophie, and I'm basing this on the behavior of the soap opera watching baby sitters of my early youth, taking care of kids was a piece of cake. The reality is, this stuff is work. A lot of it may be fun work, but make no mistake, it puts a real damper on a person's laying around, bonbon eating time. So fun stuff, like writing blog posts, talking on the phone (I used to talk on the phone?), and most other forms of normal human interaction have been abandoned.
 
I have a metric ton of stories of the goings on around here lately. Visits to the nature center. Camping on the surface of the sun, also known as Virginia in May. Touring amazing natural wonders. We've spent a little time in the Emergency Room. Not to worry, we're all fine. At some point, I will post about that. There's blood and drama, the very hallmarks of a fine blog post, if I do say so myself. My weight loss journey continues, successfully, but I won't really talk much about that now because, SNORE, aren't you all tired of hearing me go on about it? I'm tired of talking about it and I love talking about me. Obviously.

So anyhoo, this was just a quick HI! to let you know that we're all still alive. And that hopefully I can get my diminishing posterior in gear at some point and write some posts, because I miss this. And all of you.

*In case some of you were fooled by my masterful Photoshop skills, that is not an *official* Def Leppard Size 3T concert tank top. I KNOW. It's uncanny. I am an artiste.

  1. "...because I miss this. And all of you." And all of us miss all of the diminishing you, too.

    HUGS to you and Sophie.

  3. Sigh... we don't need award winning posts. Just more Sophie pics. Man up, Cara!

  4. I miss the blogging too. LIfe with three of them has somehow gotten way out of hand over here. Maybe because one of them won't stay put anymore. Lots of stuff to say, no time to write it down. Maybe we should just cave to the inevitable and give up what's left of the sleep? Miss you!

  5. lol on the shirt. Yes, I think the bloggers of the world are all quite incredibly busy this year, seems slow all over. I know I'm struggling to get something up once or twice a week these days. But it's SO sunny and nice (actually, sweltering hot but whatever)! Anyhow, take care and stay out of the ER, lol.

  7. Miss you too, though at least I have your tweets to assure me that all is well, give or take an ER trip.

    I too am struggling to find the time to blog, even as I make plans to start a second blog. Because what's better than one blog you can't maintain? That's right, two of them.

    In addition to more Sophie pics, how about some Cara pics? I'm still in need of some inspiration for my own weight loss journey.

    MISS YOU!

  8. Girlfriend, I FEEL you. Kids are so time consuming with their need to eat and be nurtured and all. Count me among the naive.

  9. Summer is CRAZY busy with kids! HI! I'm hardly blogging either. I wish there were a few extra days in the week to get everything done!

  10. Glad to hear you have been having fun and that Sophie is a busy girl too. :) It's hard with one (or two, or three, or....) kids to sit down at the computer. Lately, I feel I've become a weekend blogger!

Give me some sugar, baby!
