I'm not lost!!

Really, I am still here. And for those of you who have been checking in on me occasionally to see if I really do still blog: Thanks for not giving up on me. :)

Hmmm.... Where to begin? First, we had a wonderful family vacation. Yep, vacation. Our very first one as a family unit and we all survived. And it was great. On January 18th we flew to California. In a whirlwind 2 day tour, we did Disneyland and San Diego Zoo before we boarded a big beautiful ship and set sail for Mexico for 7 days. We went to Cabo San Lucas. (Cabo Wabo Cantina RULES!! We love Sammy Hagar! But I swear that I will remember to take the Dramamine with next time that we go whale watching on a choppy sea with empty stomachs.) Mazatlan and Puerta Villarta were the other stops that we made. It was so BEAUTIFUL and if I ever get the pictues downloaded onto my computer and take a few minutes to learn how to post pictures on blogger I swear that I will show you all some pictures. But trust me, it was beautiful.

I am behind on getting my seeds started. But I will get it done before the end of this weekend. Bad Kitkat, Bad!! I have been more focused on planning our Late Nite Catechism II and Corned Beef and Cabbage Dinner at school. I have been slacking on everything else and I desperately need to stop and pay more attention to my family and home. It's so easy to get caught up in the things that matter less. It's a personality flaw that I am working on. But it sure is a hard flaw to fix.

I have officially given up Pepsi for Lent. Oh the pain! But I am doing ok except for one small incident at a Taco Bell where I TRULY did forget that it was Lent and got a pepsi from the fountain out of habit. :(

Well, that is all that I have time for today because I SWORE to myself that I would get my house something that resembles clean today. And I have a slightly sick kiddo at home so that makes it all the more challenging. Better get cracking!!

Take care and have a great day!! :)

NICE! I've never been on a cruise. Sounds like yours was fabulous!! Post some pictures if you can, I could use a little sunshine even if it's just vicarious.

Glad you're back and I'm envious that you had a chance to enjoy some warm weather!
