Return from Hiatus

I actually haven't been anywhere... just busy. So here's a recap of life since I've been a total blog slacker.

Last week of August - My sister Michelle and her husband Skye decided they're moving back to Utah! Yeah!

Sept. 1st - Kirk's sister Heather, her husband Tony, and her two boys Kaleb (5) and Ryan (3) became the most recent inhabitants of our revolving door basement. It's been a little noisier and messier with the addition of the two extra kids, but it's also been a blast for Adam. We're happy to have doubled our family size for awhile.

Sept. 3rd - The death of a car. Yeah, our blue piece-of-crap car threw a piston, which is apparently synonymous with death. Considering it would cost more to repair than what we paid for the car in the first place, we are now in the position of looking for a replacement vehicle. Thanks to Michelle and Skye, we'll be borrowing Michelle's Alero until we figure out a permanent solution.

Sept. 4th - Adam's first day of preschool... again. Technically, Adam went to preschool last year. But he was just downstairs at the same school where I was teaching, so it feels totally different this year to just drop him off someplace. He is going to Jacque's Preschool on Tues & Thurs afternoons, and his cousin (and current housemate) Ryan is in his class.

Sept. 6th - I put the finishing touches on two guest books that absolutely had to be finished last week. I love the work, but I hate it when it encroaches on my family time, and last week I felt like I had to work a ton! But I can't complain, because that means my business, well, has business.

Hopefully I'm back in the blogsosphere this week, but with a houseful of kids and a new business to run, we'll see if I find time or not.

Sounds busy!! Hopefully things will tone down a bit. I'm sorry about the car. I had no idea. Let us know if we can help in any way. Can't wait for Thursday night!!
