I'm alive!

Sheesh. It's been awhile and for that I apologize. I just haven't had much to say. I've just sort of been trucking along these past few weeks, keeping busy with work, the kids, planning birthday parties and watching the calendar fill up for this summer.

The kids are officially on summer vacation. Today is their first day. How wonderful it was to not hear an alarm at 6:15 this morning (wait - I *did* hear the alarm because a certain someone did not disable it and then stumbled around the room to find the cell phone that was still hidden in some article of clothing, in a pile on the bedroom floor (and that's a whole other post in and of itself!).

Anywho....

Last Friday I took the kids to see UP. I didn't tell them where we were going; just to get in the car and they'd see. Yeah, I'm pretty sure I earned some points with them that day. They were well behaved during the movie, and we all really enjoyed it. Now I look forward to taking them to see Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs in September. And - I had no idea they were making another one - Toy Story 3 will coming out next June!!! I felt like a kid in a candy store during the previews alone. I love Disney.

So, I just wanted to pop in and give a quick update. I'm on vacation starting this weekend (technically it's a "stay-cation" because we're not going anywhere), but it's going to feel a whole lot like work because the week is just about jam-packed with things to do; parties to attend (2), parties to host (2), new baby to visit, and a concert to attend, just to name a few. Plus, Mike is working, so I'll be doing alot of this on my own (all aside from the parties to host, he will be home for that). Busy times!
