I have had several people ask me the past couple weeks if I am ever going to blog again on a regular basis. Especially those that I live away from and who never get to see my family.
The answer is yes. I am just being lazy. And there's a little thing called a baby (although he's not very little anymore. He's close to 12 pounds now.... at 3 weeks old. Chunk is his new nickname, in case you were wondering) that I have to feed approximately every 2-3 hours and I feel like that is all I do anymore. Not to mention Thanksgiving-just planned the menu yesterday! My first ever away from family :( Also, trying to get Christmas shopping finished up, keeping up with laundry-that although we've only added one little tiny person to the house-seems to have doubled in size, helping kids with little school projects, attempting to keep my house clean, getting new pictures done (for M as well as our family), helping out friends, trying to stay afloat with my calling, trying to give my husband adequate attention and trying to not let him fall to the bottom of the list (crap, he's at the end of this list ;), and a million more little things that I have going on.
I have also been very emotional, hormonal, and I guess I might have a little bit of the "baby blues". I constantly have things on my mind (some of which are ridiculous and I don't even know why I am thinking them) and I feel a little overwhelmed. I have lists of things to do sitting everywhere. Lists are taking over my life lately! And I am also feeling homesick for probably the first time since moving here. Of course I have missed my family since we've moved, but I know the holidays will be really hard. Especially Christmas-it will be a whole new experience having Christmas with just our little family. Not bad, but different. I'm hoping to make it a wonderful and memorable one for my children.
Anyway, I was hoping to keep this short and now I've rambled on. This is why I love to blog-it's therapeutic for me :)
So, my point was, I have been working on several posts that are from before Magnus was born, so you'll have plenty to catch up on in the life of the Collette family-that is, if you care to :) Also coming soon (hopefully, if I can get it done-I might have to wait until the new year when things calm down and aren't quite so crazy around here) is a bit of a facelift for my humble little blog. A new name (which my hubby came up with-he used to be so against blogging and look at him now! Haha), and a new look, and some new ideas. But don't hold your breath for it... ;)
