Sorry for the absence.
Or am I fooling myself in thinking that it really matters that
I was gone last week from blogging?
Oh I was around.
I read all your blogs.
Even visited a few.
But when it came to writing on my own,
well I just couldn't bring myself to type something out.
Last weekend was a whole new experience for me.
I was alone most of the weekend.
Both Olivia and Michael were away at a youth retreat with our church.
They left Friday around noon and came home Sunday evening.
Which left me alone in the house for the first time in 17 years.
Not so bad!
I had worship rehearsal Friday evening and Saturday morning.
Then I did a little shopping at my favorite country store
and purchased a really nice tablecloth and some cute dish towels.
Then off to the video store to rent two movies.
That I wanted to see!
I spent the rest of the afternoon watching the videos,
making homemade pizza and basically doing NOTHING.
But I missed my kids.
I missed the Colonel.
And life returned to normal Sunday evening when the kids came home and the laundry basket overflowed and the computers were on and bowls of popcorn were left in the living room.
And I realized how blessed I am.
Enjoy your day!
