Hello...Anyone There?


I know...I've been MIA...BIG TIME! It's been a wild-wild-wild crazy few weeks. Lots of ups and down and downs and ups. Dealing with my sister-in-law's passing, my husband flying back and forth to California to take care of her 4 kids (they have no family or father...and there's a big possibility that I'll go from a mother of 5 to 9 shortly) , swine flu, homecoming, kids sports, school, church commitments...you know, the drill.

I've realized that I'm in the thick of life! I'm potty training 2 kids, teaching one to tie his shoes and another to drive. So yeah, that's my excuse. I'll be back into the blogging world tomorrow...or Wednesday....okay, at least by Friday.

I'm still the luckiest mom in the world!

Wow, my heart just aches for those children.

You have a lot on your plate of life right now.

What amazing people you and your husband must be and what a blessing that they have someone like you and your husband!!

Praying for you and your extended family!

You know, when family things come up I realize how trivial my blogging time can be. It's a fun thing to do, a great escape, and sometimes can even be helpful and therapeutic ... but reality is that I'm a mom and my family's needs ALWAYS come first. If I'm lucky enough to have some leftover time I might blog about about it. I've been absent from my blog for a couple of months, and I'm just now starting back. I think it's amazing that any of us moms ever have time to get online! And WOW ... for you to possibly become a mom of nine ... what a blessing you are! Keep us posted when you can ... in the meantime hug the family for me! Y'all are in my prayers.

Makes my weeks sound easy!! So sorry to hear about all the family stuff. My prayers are with you!

Robynn's Ravings said...

Tara! Oh my word! I will be praying for you as you face such a huge transition. You will have to tell us more as you can. Those poor kids losing their mom and having the father absent. Thank GOD you are in their lives! But you will need support!

you are in the thick of life aren't you?

Sally said...

I just wanted to tell you that I LOVE your blog! I just spent hours reading all your great ideas!

Marie said...

Hello sweet Tara - I can't even begin to tell you how sorry I am for your sister-in-law's passing. I will be lifting you up in prayer as you minister to the family. God will give you and your husband the strength to do what ever it is needed. And then to have on top of that, all of the normal ever-day-life stuff to tackle. Whew! You could use more hours in your day. Just know that you're being thought of by little ol' me here in San Diego!

Blessings,
Marie

Sorry to hear about your sister-in-law. You really do have a lot on your plate right now. I agree with Linda's comment above that family needs come first, before blogging. So hang in there, and we'll just be happy to read your blog when we can. :)

I also really like the Bracelet on this watch which is a Breitling Navitimer and comes in brushed stainless steel to match the case. The 20mm wide clasp is also brushed stainless steel and there is a flip lock that is marked with the classic wings and Navitimer World logo. The fit and finish on the Chronomat B01 is excellent and in my opinion it is not too fussy like many Montbrillant Datora can be, it is truly a lovely watch that oozes style and character.
Christian Louboutin Sale is a bride’s best friend. Preparing for a wedding is a heavy task for a woman. Many brides wanted to look good with Christian Louboutin Pumps on their weddings. The bride to be is busy looking for a wedding planner, the right color motif, souvenirs, the wedding dress, the guests, flowers and many other details during her preparations. Aside from her wedding dress, the bride also finds the right Christian Louboutin Boots to feet her feet. Just like choosing the dress, choosing Christian Louboutin Sandals for the wedding is also a decision that a woman has to do.
