Taking A Break

I know I have been absent from this blog all week. I very well may be absent for a while longer yet. Sometimes life deals us difficult circumstances. We have had a tough year that way. Last summer Jamie was so very sick and we feared we might lose him. Then I fell off my horse, breaking bones and getting a sprain and bruises and a bad case of poison ivy to boot. I was sick for ten weeks after that, then our Christmas and New Years were tainted with stomach flu for the second year in a row. And then of course, there was the flood. But in more recent days we were dealt a much more devastating blow, the details of which I will not share in here at this particular moment. I am only writing this to explain my absence and to say that at the moment, I just can't write about day to day life in here. Mike and I are both exhausted and burnt out, and we hope to take a holiday in a week or so, just to get away from here and hopefully recharge and recover a little bit, while enjoying some quality time with each other and our boys. Perhaps after that, life will feel a little more normal once again and I can share with you stories of my cute, crazy and often frustrating moments of my housemom life.

If all goes well, and we actually do get away, I will be taking lots of pictures and I will certainly chronicle our little holiday in here. We have never taken a family vacation, and I would say we are long overdue. For now I will say bye, and I hope to be back soon.
