Dearest blog,

I miss you desperately. It has been too long since we have been together. I think of you every day, think of things I would like to tell you, beautiful thoughts that beg to be expressed. Almost every day this year has been a Day of Gratitude.

How I long to sit and chat with you for hours and catch up on everything. To tell you of Exacto's first band concert and Fluffy's looking so handsome in his new glasses. How Hummer wanted to "lick the kitchen floor" so he would get sick and not have to go to school when there was a substitute.

I wish I could spend an hour every day just conveying to you the winning ways of our beloved baby Rosebud in her last few days of being less than a year old. Or telling you of the kindness of DC and his birthday gift to me of a whole day with free hands, even when he is so busy himself.

Alas, our time is not now. But it is coming soon, I know it. A day will soon come, when Rosebud WILL go to bed in her crib before 11pm, and take at least one regular nap per day. (I am relying on the Australian Baby Whisperer's plan for this!) A day when our tangle with the city over the ditch in our yard will be resolved, and my peace of mind restored. I have high hopes. . . .

Please wait for me, and know that my heart is still with you.

With longing,

I can't wait until you can reconnect too. I am excited to hear all about your goings on. I hope you have a great week and can make progress with your to-do's.
Miss you.

That link to the post about your ditch --was that really correctly dated at two years ago? Yowsers...

You make me smile! Glad to know you're still ok :-)
Happy Birthday and Merry Christmas!

Lovely to hear from you. Believe me, I understand that life stays busy and there aren't enough hours in the day to do everything we want to do!

I wish I could babysit for you guys on Friday night so you could have a birthday date. Barry will be on a youth temple trip so I'll be stuck at home anyway. =) I hope you have a wonderful birthday! Your sweet husband had just the right idea for a gift, too. So much better than anything that money could buy, in my opinion.

Tell your cute boys (and little gal) hello for me. I miss you all!

And, by the way, the quotables on your side bar are my favorite! Your boys always say such clever and funny things. Thanks for sharing.
