Why I have not had much to say
Spring has Sprung
I have been MIA for a while now and it is not for lack of desire to write but for lack of time. I had a pretty bad infection at the beginning of February and that knocked me out for almost two weeks. Just as I recovered we had a death in our family and thus I took an impromptu trip to PA. Now after being away for almost two weeks I have been home trying to get my bearings and re-enter the routine. Get my bearings ya know.
In an effort to celebrate spring and lift our spirits son and I have been doing a lot of spring like things. We planted few veggies in pots. I did it in post because this is my 1st year experimenting with a possible vegetable garden and I just don't know where in the yard the plants will get the best sun, also we will be re-doing our yard so this is a great way to find out if things will even grow back there. We have a lot of trees and not mush sun.
Another springy thing we did is we visited the Mercer Arboretum. It is a very cool place with trails and fun little swamps. We only go to see a portion of it and I didn't really see much in the way for spring flowers, but we will definitely have to go explore some more.
It seems that spring is in full swing and we are looking forward to our annual Bluebonnet trip and some other fun things to do. It is comforting to be at home and as much as I miss my family back in PA I love Texas and am enjoying out 80 degree weather.
Pappy and Grandma to the rescue …
So as my previous post suggests I have not been a star mother for the last few days. With Mr. Right gone and me fighting this crap my little man was left to do much of his own entertaining which in turn entertained mommy. By day 3 he was feeling cabin fever and had just about enough of putting on shows for mommy. We managed ok with meals and a bath and all that but it was not fun for the little man.

I am so excited about having my friend visit this weekend before I head out and for the party tomorrow night. I feel like I have been living and breathing getting ready for this trip and as fun as it has been I need a distraction. I ran 8.22 miles this morning and it gave me a nice mental break but then we had some last minute shopping to do Mr. Right needed hikers and I had few more little things to pick up and I am back on the “oh my God I so hope I am not forgetting something” train. So I think that I will put most everything in the suite cases so that it is all away, out of sight out of mind and I am going to enjoy my house guests, with some turtle trips and just hanging out at the house and maybe even the pool. Ahhh yes that sounds like a great plan. I can get back to this madness the day before I depart.
