Remember Me?

Sorry for my Missing In Action status lately. I've been caught up in the world of 13th century Wales and England. All of my discretionary time for the past two weeks has gone to reading Here Be Dragons. I can't remember the last time I was so captivated--I have seriously dreamed this book every night. If you enjoy historical fiction, I highly recommend this book.

What else has been going on? Hmmm. Schoolwork. Laundry. Baby showers (not for me-- there are so many people pregnant around here these days). Feeding my family-can you believe that they want food three or more times a day? Helping my mom plan her upcoming move. Primary. Gardening (although not as much as I'd like. We're supposed to finally get our new concrete poured and stamped on Monday and I can get in our new, second garden after that). Helping with an Emergency Preparedness Fair for the community. Growing a baby. Chasing an exhausting 2-year-old. No wonder I've not been reading or writing blogs lately. When did I ever have the time before this?

Now I need to go get dressed and get over to the library for the next book in the trilogy.

What's keeping you busy this spring?

Fun to see you again. I should find a fun book and do some reading myself. I always get on the computer when my kids are in bed. The ground is finally thawing out around here enough to think about a garden. Sounds like you've been busy with good things; good heavens, I got tired just reading about it. :)

I remember you. Do you remember me? It seems as if we are all pretty busy. I agree-- how did we ever have time to blog several times a week? Good to know you are alive and well! Love to you all.

I just finished reading this book too! I also think it is wonderful. But then I'm sort of a historical fiction/fantasy freak, so of course I love it! :)

I'm glad you liked it too! I'm going to go to the library to check out the next books this week.

My family wants three meals too! What's up with that?!!?
Although; I would rather cook than clean.
My ideal mommy job would be: receiving all the hugs and kisses and only having to worry about feeding them...
Can you tell I am avoiding the huge mountain of laundry in my room, and the dishes in my sink? :)

Man- I'm exhausted just reading it all!

I'm going to go have a nap (YEAH RIGHT!)

Looks like some good reading! I'm going to have to look those up.

Glad to see you've been doing well, even though very busy!

I've been writing on my own blog, but reading everyone else's has kind of fallen by the wayside. I'm working on another project that will actually bring me your direction in a couple weeks. I'll email you with more details.

love the new blog colors and pattern. I'll put that book on my to-read list.

As for being busy-pretty much the same things you're working on. Except for the baby part.
