Two Months

That's how long it's been since I last posted.

Almost as long since I last even opened Blogger to check my favourite blogs.

Yes, I've been busy, but I've also been uninspired.  And rather than leave a string of posts discussing my lack of anything relatively important to say, I've taken a break.

I've fought with computer programs.

I've embraced my new little piece of technology.

I've picked up an old project.

I've travelled and continued booking more trips.

I've played with my kids.

I've gone on dates with Hubs.

Basically, I changed up my routine a little bit and have refreshed myself.  This year, when February rolled around, I was in a rut.  I was no longer interested in work, keeping house, cooking, my health, and writing here.  I was going through the motions, but there was not a lot of enjoyment there.

For my birthday, Hubs bought plane tickets for me and our youngest to go down to southern California and spend a week with my parents at the timeshare in March.  I am not at all ashamed to admit that when I opened that confirmation paper with our flight itineraries, I broke down into tears.  It was just what I needed.

We spent that week in the sun, shopping, playing at the park and at the pool, at a classic car rally, seeing all the grandparents, at the beach...so rejuvenating.  And I always love seeing all our parents so relaxed.  There is something intoxicating about the home away from home they've made for themselves.  In the evenings, once the little boy was asleep, we relaxed with tea, cookies, and old TV shows.

And now, I am ready to embrace spring and all that comes with it.  Playing outside, gardening, deep-cleaning (big kudos to Hubs for cleaning out the garage already!), grilling, going for walks (and maybe even runs!).

It is warming up outside, Easter is coming, and the grandparents are coming home...spring MUST be here!

I was just thinking I hadn't seen you around for a long time. Glad to hear from you.

Your husband sounds fantastic. I am so glad you had such a wonderful time in California. And to be rejuvinated is a gift, so glad you are ambracing it!

Sounds like a great time! We all need that once in a while. Aren't you just loving this gorgeous weather we are having?! Happy Easter!
