No Excuses

I know....long time no see, and people have been begging me to get on and post. I've been meaning too, really I have, I've just been trying to juggle life, and get things prioritized. A lot of the reason that I haven't blogged as much is because I've been trying to cut down on my internet time during Lorelai's naps. I was getting in a super bad habit of getting online the minute I laid her down and spending the whole two hours ( twice a day mind you) on the internet! All the while neglecting things that I should and want to get done, like house work and various projects that I have taken on, that are kind of impossible to do when L is awake. But I'm going to strive to be better...really, I am. :)

I have several pics of L in her cast, 2 cute video's of her ( on just rolling around and playing and the other of her attempting to crawl) and then a couple pics of her sitting by herself. Hopefully that will satiate all of the L fixes that need to be satiated. :) She hopefully gets her cast off on Wednesday, and we're very excited. I seriously can't wait...I can only imagine that L will get a new sense of freedom when it's off. She's been working so hard at crawling lately she's getting this dry spot on her knee. I suspect it won't be too much longer after she gets her cast off that she'll really start to get the hang of it.

Erick is doing wonderful, we got a small gift and card from his Commander wishing L a speedy recovery, and that was really nice. We really feel blessed to be on the boat that he is on, they're treating him really well and he is enjoying his job. I suspect that part of it has to do with Erick himself, he makes it really easy for people to like him, he's such a goof ball, and he's just a cheerful guy who puts 100% into everything he does. It's hard to dislike a person like that. Believe me...I would know! :)

I'm doing great...I've caught some like spring fever or something, because I've got a million projects that I've been working on and it's really been fun for me. It's nice having a car so L and I can get out every once in a while, but I've been doing a lot of stuff at home...I've started a garden in my front yard, pictures of that to come soon, and debating about doing a vegetable garden in my back yard. I've got several projects going for Megs baby, some she's aware of and some that she's not...I worked on one today that turned out FABULOUS!!! So fabulous in fact, that I think I may try to do some for other pregnant women that I know.

It's just been a lot of fun lately. Life is good.

Alright...I think I've updated enough for now...her are the pics/video's ! Enjoy!
