My, I've been "away" a bit. I wish I could account for this past week with stories of all I got accomplished, but no. I don't even know what I did. It's all a blur.

Truth to tell I came up feeling a little blue. My 2 big girls are away at the beach staying with friends this week so I don't have my usual company about. The little boys have been fighting all day. Sometimes I am just at a loss as to who is right, wrong, up, down, had it first etc. I'd like to just staple them to their beds. You know I'm kidding, right?

Well, like I said, I was blue. And I felt like I should post something but my mind was empty. Except for griping. Which isn't very edifying, is it? But I guess I already did that.

So I decided to peruse the other blogs. Amy has up sweet pictures of her new little baby. Yeah, I should be more grateful, huh? Lyn has stories of God's providence for her family. Been there many a time. Yeah, I really should be a lot more grateful. Carmon has a post up about salvation stories. Yeah, I got it. I really should be a lot, lot more grateful!!! Marbel has a post about the homeschooling Adams Family. I remember that episode. Gotta chuckle at that! And to cap it off, Mrs. Darling got to watch the ice cream man get arrested before her very eyes. OK, now I'm laughing. That could only happen to Mrs. Darling. I'm much cheerier now!! Thanks! :)

I know isnt that the silliest turn of events? I cant tell you how upset wendy was at me for getting pics. She thought it was the height of rednecktivity at it's best. Rednecktivity, bwahahahhaa. Now look at the new word I made. But hey, it was funny that guy got arrested like that. He had to sit in that cop car right in front of our campsite for over an hour. How humiliating for him!

Glad to have you back, Kerri. Hey, I only have 2 and they're older, but I still have the problem of knowing who's right, who's right, who started it, yadda yadda yadda.

Mrs D, I love your new word! I am going to use it today! (I am married to a Georgia boy after all, so redneck comes up in conversation here). I'll give you credit. Hey, maybe we can get it in the dictionary!

Fantastic ice cream man story! Thanks for the links!

I'm sorry you've been blue. Two suggestions for blue-ness...well, 3. 1. are you taking a good omega 3 (fish oils stuff)? 2. getting out for a good walk a few times a week? and 3. just imagine having boils all over your body then the many squabbles we break up are like nothing! lol Dontcha get tired of all the DRAMA???? every little thing that happens around here is a major event lately. Its exhausting. And too hot to kick their rears out to play!

Mrs. Darling, maybe Wendy could look at it as a multicultural experience...

Lyn-I don't take the fish oils. But I do take a multi-vitamin and take quite a few walks. But the boils..well.. that could put a different perspective on things..
