I miss blogging.
I realized that last night when I finally posted about our 4th of July doings, leaving my husband to clean up a very messy kitchen. We usually share the cooking/cleaning duties. If I cook, he cleans. If he cooks, I clean. Last night, he cooked...and I blogged...so he cleaned. (Perhaps that is why he left the nasty hairball for me to clean up this morning?)
Oh...wait...that last pondering makes it sound like HE left the hairball. Oops. That would not be correct. One of the cats left the rather large nasty hairball on the downstairs bathroom floor over night. Brian just left it for me to clean up. That's a joy to discover at 6:56 A.M.
Aaaand now that I've lost anyone who might be reading this morning...I should move on to the topic of the day...
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...or so it seems in my little head...
"Us" was truly what my blog title suggests...
Momma and G and a cat...a family of three.
I was a single mom to my sweet, now 10 year old daughter. I adopted her at the age of 13 months.
|Momma and G|
|Momma and G|
AKA "HC" or "Thing 1"
AKA "BAD CAT!" or "Thing 2"
and several other things I can't post on my family blog ;)
We cruised along, the four of us...two human and two feline...until last February...when I met Brian...
And his two daughters, M&M...
And the dog
AKA "Dog" or "Thing 3"
So now we are this...
|The ONLY picture I have of the five of us!|
No longer three or four, but eight--five humans and two felines and one canine.
Life is messy.
Life is fun.
Life is certainly not always easy as we find our way.
Blending two families is hard.
There are good times and then not-so-good times. There is work, which all revolves around school...
I am an elementary school teacher, headed back to kindergarten in the fall for the first time in a
L-OOOOO-N-G time. Brian is a media relations specialist for our school system. The girls are in school...rising 7th, 5th, and 4th grades.
So there are school projects,
extra curricular activities,
weekends that are too short...
Things go by in a blur sometimes.
Oh, who am I kidding...things go by in a blur most of the time!
But by blogging, I find a few moments to slow down and think about what has been going on in our life.
I started blogging as a way to let family keep up with us. Then it became more of a journal, keeping up with things we have been doing. I don't have many followers, and I've probably lost many of them with my blogging hiatus of recent months.
I know my mom reads it. (Hi Mom!)
And Brian reads it too (Hi Brian! But aren't you supposed to be working?)
And hopefully you are still reading too (Hi you! Thanks for reading!)
If you would like to help me out a little bit here...any suggestions for a new blog title? I desperately need to update things around here. (I'm not very good at that, but I can muddle through it.) I just haven't done it because I know I need a new title since we are no longer "Momma and G and the Cat Make 3" and I simply can't think of one.
And now I'm off to read some new blogs through the commenting challenge at Jenna's Journey. Can't wait to see who's out there!
