That's sort of why I haven't posted as much lately. Sorry I've been a bit MIA. Now, I know one of my sister's Rules of Life for Ladies is Never Apologize, Never Explain, but she is made of stronger stuff than me. I apologize a lot. Not as much as I used to, but still. I have a graduate degree in apology. I will say sorry for things I'm not even remotely connected with. People find it annoying sometimes, but what's a girl to do? I gotta be me.
Above are a few snapshots of what we've been up to. I'm posting from my phone, so I can't separate them as I normally would. I am now not going to apologize for that. It's been a nice break from routine. Jason and I have had a couple of work/ministry-related fires to put out, (holidays can be stressful for some folks) but overall we've had fun together and relaxed as a family.
Our friends even watched the kids for a day and a night so Jase and I could stay in the city! Overnight! In a hotel! Without a pack-n-play in our room! We walked all over the city. We browsed. We people-watched. We had dinner at a place that didn't EVEN have a kid's menu. As if such places exist! I'm probably imagining the whole thing.
This is what's happening in our world right now. I really can't complain! Ah, but lest you think it's perfect, here are some of my issues: Ava has an ear infection, Grace keeps saying "boobies!" in public, I am now so badly in need of a pedicure that I'm embarrassed to wear open-toe shoes, and there is a funny smell in our playroom-slash-extra-sitting-area. I'm not sure what that's about. I told Jase I think it might be the sofa, and he was like, "You and your smelling imaginary things. You always think it's the sofa! It's NOT the sofa!" And I was like, sorry, gah. (See? Apology!) And he was like, you're weird. And I was like, hmmph.
As the sage Kurt Cobain once said, Oh well, whatever, never mind.
That's all I got! I've missed y'all! Everybody okay out there?
