Time for catch up

It has been a few weeks since my last post.

What kind of blogger am I if I cant find time to blog???

Things have been a little crazy here. Not necessarily busy, but I haven't found the extra time or desire to sit down and blog. When the girls are awake we are gone. Trips to the park or pool, running errands or just playing outside in the backyard. The lawn has never looked so good... except for that tree that's dying, and the graveyard of vegetable plants that I call my garden. Spring cleaning fever hit a little late this year and I have been doing everything inside and outside from scrubbing the baseboards and vacuuming the porch ceiling fan to scrubbing windows and the fridge.

Side note: does anyone ever notice how spring cleaning usually ends up with an incredibly messy house minus a few spotless appliances or closets? I usually find myself halfway through a job and up to my elbows in clutter when I get distracted and pulled to another task. Then I have 2 messes where I previously had a neat house with a few small crumbs in the pantry.

Much like what I just did with this post! Now I have 2 stories I am trying to tell.

Just stick with one at a time Sara!

Ok I promise I will, but I just have to say one more thing...

How do baseboards get so dirty in the first place? I can honestly say I have never even seen them touched, yet once a year I take notice and find them caked with crap. Well, not literally caked with crap, but dirt, food, smudges, dust, you name it.

Ok, I'm back.

Aside from the spring cleaning we have been focusing on family time. Sometimes it gets hard to spend time together if I am hunched over in front of the computer or the hubby is doing his favorite pastime, playing Modern Warfare 2.

1 more side note: I have never cared much when WM plays video games, I know many women do but I just dont care that much. Well his obsession with MW2 has changed that, I have started to get a twitch whenever I hear that intro music starting. I have thought about this and i think I can explain why this time is so different. Maybe I should save that for its own post, it might take a while.

I'm not really sure if this post is salvageable after all these side notes but here is the jist of what I am trying to say.

These last few weeks have been less about taking pictures and blogging and Facebook, and more about family time together. When WM and I weren't playing with the girls and basking in their giggles we were working on the house or hanging out with friends. Just some family maintenance time. I think we all needed it.

*If you made it to the end of that post I applaud you... and perhaps question your sanity.
