I’m going to go ahead and skip the “I can’t believe I haven’t blogged for this long” and the apologies and just tell you that one thing about myself is that when I’m happy and life is generally going well, I tend not to turn to this space to get my feelings out.

And since the last two years have been the happiest of my life, I guess it makes sense that I haven’t been around here much in that period of time.

What that doesn’t mean is that I’m suddenly unhappy again. Quite the contrary, in fact… I am just over here loving life as a work-from/stay-at-home mom. Our boys are growing and are the lights of my life, and with our third son on the way in August (!!!!!) I know life is going to get busier than ever. One thing I’ve never done is pressure myself to blog regularly or be apologetic if I don’t, and that will continue. But I do miss this space from time to time and refuse to give it up.

So that’s that: Life is good, I’m still alive and I still love the internet.

And so it begins

Oh hey, I have a blog. Or at least I pay for one, as the surprise domain renewal charge I got today says. So I guess I’ll use it!

Today was Big E’s first day of preschool, and although I’ve been talking to him about it for months… dropping him off did not go well. He was NOT happy to be at school, he was NOT okay with the idea that I was leaving him there, and he most certainly DID want to go home.

He cried. I cried. Little E cried.

We all cried.

But thank god I know the school employees so well and that they are all so kind and caring. I still have a little less than an hour before I need to pick him up, and I have received three separate updates on him, all from different employees. The principal called me shortly after I left, the teacher sent me a picture of him soon after that of him settled and playing, and then my friend (a custodian at the school) sent me a video of him playing.

He’s fine. I’m fine. Little E is happy to have free reign of the toys in the house while big brother is gone. We’re all fine.

Except I could really use a hug.

Well, hi there.

It’s… been awhile. I know. While I’m not apologizing for not posting (because… this is my blog and I’ll post when I want to!), I am offering a bit of an explanation. For the, like, three of you out there that might care. Heh.

It probably goes without saying that I’ve been busy. I mean, I have two kids… two very active boys… and yeah, I’ve been busy. I am still working (very) part-time from home, and I’ve also added my own business on top of it all!

Yes, you read that right. I’m not going to sit here and sell you anything, but if you’re curious, I’m not an Independent Consultant for Jamberry Nails.

I’d love to write about all the shenanigans my boys get into (who, by the way, are now ONE and THREE… wtf) but I’m tired. So instead, here are some pictures of what Jamberry has done for me.
