I think that I may have to become Kelly Thoreau and find a cabin in the woods for peaceful, undisturbed and healing blogging time. Has it really been this long since I blogged? It has been a busy time for me with planning for Fright Night at the intermediate school (a big success gratefully), juggling the kids' activities and my volunteer work, and weathering through a week long power outage. All in all, we feel blessed to be safe, healthy and happy here in our home together. I pray for all those who have lost so much due to the storm.
I can't wait to visit all of you soon. My battle with laryngitis is almost over and a vlog will soon be showing up here. Now that the voice is returning, my kids are "thrilled" that I don't have to make all those crazy hand gestures and facial expressions to get my point across to them. How much the teenagers loved to act like they didn't understand my mime attempts at communication. When a battle would brew among the boys, you can be sure that an almost accurately thrown laundry sock ball was thrown into the mix to get their attention. Needless to say, they laughed at my "lame" (their description) attempt at pitching!
