Dear Blog,

I'm sorry I've been so short with you lately. I assure you it hasn't been intentional, I've just not had time to say more.

How is it that I've been working from sun up to sun down yet I still have a sink full of dishes, hamper full of laundry, and a desk full of orders to fulfill? I promise I haven't been slacking off. Oh sure, I did take the kids to see a movie the other day but that was like 2 hours out of my day. And I did give myself a small pedicure this morning, but that was while The Baby was in the bath and I sat next to the tub and quickly polished while he played for a minute. Other than that, I've stayed busy!

TurdBaby is sure that he needs no sleep. I've tried telling him that a 7 month old really does not need to wake 7 times a night to nurse and skip all daytime naps, but he either doesn't believe me or is trying to prove me wrong. Either way, he's winning. He's pulled both of these tricks the past several days and needless to say, I'm not thrilled.

I know I may sound full of excuses dearest Blog, but I just wanted you to know that I haven't been cheating on you with message boards or other blogs. I just truly have not had much time lately. Will you please forgive me?

On a different note, I'm surprised that not one person felt lucky yesterday! I had a great prize lined up for the first person to respond and not one person did! That was disappointing. Oh, and I've decided that for now I'm tired of the music so I'm removing it for a bit. Maybe I'll add some new songs soon or rearrange them a bit.

Sorry to hear the little one isn't sleeping :( What is it with your kids and not wanting to sleep??? LOL did they get that from Josh? Make him stay up with him! *LOL*

I understand how it is though feeling like you're constantly busy, but yet you look around and it doesn't seem like anything has been accomplished! That's the story of my life lately!!!

Hope things get better soon!!!!

Beki, I totally understand the lack of time for blogging sometimes! Life gets in the way & you sure sound busy with a small baby.

Ohhhh, I hope the sleep situation rectifies itself quickly. Nothing harder than that. Except sick kids, of course.

And I, too have been finding it tough to carve out blogging time lately. But I'm excited for your trip to CO. What peak are you climbing!?

Sadly, I did not feel lucky yesterday. I felt exhausted. And I'll bet you did too with that lil guy's sleeping schedule.

Breathe in. Breathe out. Repeat: This too shall pass. :)

sounds like your little man is giving you the boot camp my 1st put me through...I was 8 months prego with my second and she was still not sleeping more than 3 hours a night...then, at 12 months ( kids are really close in age)...the quiet of the night...She sleeps great now!

Hope you get some rest!

I hope the little one will start sleeping at night.

I didn't understand that you were offering a prize yesterday. Call me slow!

I'm with you on the laundry part... only one hamper wouldn't come close to holding the mountain that is taunting me.

Yes I think this time of year brings about SO much and so little extra time for things like blogging and know..the essentials. ;o)

Missed you, glad you're back!

Yikes Beki, my heart goes out to you girl!! I hope he's slept more for you the last few days...Only your baby can make you simultaneously want to choke, kiss and drug to sleep someone, hehe!
