This afternoon in the middle of a tinker toy extravaganza, the phone rang.
"Jordan! Are you okay?!"
"Why?...because I haven't been posting, huh?"
I loved this. That I was missed, that it made my mom call and that she values the details of my life and what I have to say about the details of hers. It feels good.
Here's a "sugar free" catch-up in photos and a few reasons (good and evil) that I've been MIA.
Our debut "family" camping trip. Next trip: after Hazel turns 4 years old!! Joshua Tree, the park, had us all in awe, but our littles are perhaps a little too little for the little amount of shut-eye the Bigs caught in the tent. Yet, the stars and the silence seemed to make up for all of that, in a way.
Making preparations for Seth 1st "friends" birthday party. He's turning four. This is the photo I'm using for his postcard invites. (The one above, not below!)
Recovering from the insertion (or rather the effects of said insertion) of the above device...sorry, don't mean to get personal...oh wait, yes I do. Two weeks later I RAN in to have, as my dear friend put it, "Lucifer taken out of my uterus". Um, yes, hormones, especially synthetic ones, are not my friend (I'll save more of the contents of this soap box for another post).
Other than that, we have survived yet another week in the arrid desert, soaking it with plenty of tears, tickles, and now...smiles. Giving thanks for second chances, healthy bodies, healthy minds, starry nights, and walks with wildlife: (can you spot what we spotted in this picture:)
