Why I've been absent

Posted by Mandy at 2:53 PM
Hello Blogland. Yes, it is I... the missing one. Why have I not been blogging, you might be asking yourself? It seems that lately my life revolves around a handful of activities that I just do over and over and over again.

1. Feed people
2. clean
3. feed baby
4. clean baby
5. play with kids
6. repeat

"Clean" is to symbolize all things housework. You know: dishes, laundry, floors... oh-my-the-floors... Can someone please tell me why I have to wash towels twice a week when we have not one but TWO cabinets FULL of towels? Don't get me wrong, none of these things are bothersome to me. I typically actually REALLY enjoy cleaning, feeding the fam, and of course playing. The thing is, all of these things, especially when done one right after another for hours and hours on end, really are quite time consuming. I checked my email yesterday for the first time in about a week and had over 200 emails! Yikes! Guess how many were from actual people... go ahead.. it's okay.. guess. Like 6. Six out of 200... how annoying, right?! I want to send an email to the Viagra people to say something along the lines of, "when I grow a penis that experiences ED I'll be sure to let you know..." or to the dating services, "Married with 3 children.. probably will not appeal to the masses." Why do I get these crazy junk emails? (even with my junk mail filter supposedly on "high"... whatever) So, these things are all taking up my oh so precious time so I've had none to blog or even visit all of your blogs. Forgive me. I'm in the process of finding time to play on the puter again. Oh... one good thing that's taking up my time... exercising! Yep.. the hour I used to spend during Sam's nap filling you all in one me and seeing what was going on with you I now use burning and firming. So, hurrah me. Single digit jean sizes, here I come. Eventually...

Good for you! :-) We'll forgive you for your absence, since it's for a good cause. Now if I could just get motivated to exercise rather than blog. Huh.

And keep in mind that those of us in single digit sizes aren't necessarily in the best shape. Sure, I eat well, but I can't even run around the block without half-dying, gasping,'s quite pathetic. And then I see my 3-year old zoom by me.

You look pretty good in the pics you've seen!

Try a new email account--I know it's can be a hassle to switch your contacts but it can be worth it. I use a separate account for non-family/friends email (things that might get me on spam lists). Try signing up for a gmail account. The spam filters are great and it's easy to add contacts--once someone emails you, they are in your contacts!

Keep having fun with the family :)
