This was not my best blogging week. But it wasn’t my best anything week really. Life just seems to busy these days. I’m hoping it settles down soon. Although I’ve not had time to read more than a few pages in print this week, I did finish Kate Atkinson’s Life after Life on audio yesterday. I think I need to discuss this with someone. Takers?

I am busy getting ready for my little baby to turn ONE next weekend, but I am still in disbelief that it has actually been a year since he was born.

But then again, he is walking every where these days…

…which has led to much more baby-proofing.

We even had to start putting shoes on our Florida baby (remember when it took us months to even put him in pants?).

But we do get a few moments of calm. Every once in awhile.

And now I am off to paint some more honey pots. Have a wonderful Sunday, readers.

Today is my very first Mother’s Day (unless you count being 9 months pregnant last year). Being a mom is the best and most difficult and most amazing and most exhausting job I’ve ever had. Happy Mother’s Day to all of you moms out there. I don’t want to get too mushy here – I’ll save that for E’s birthday later this month.

Today is also my five year Florida anniversary (or, my Florida-versary). Five years ago, my dad and I drove from Michigan to Florida with an Aerostar full of my things (Ben was already living here for a year). Some days I look I look at the sunshine, blue sky, and palm trees and and wonder, “how did I end up here?” Life is interesting.

Finally, I have a trial starting tomorrow so you all know the drill by now. I’ll be putting the blog in maintenance mode and protecting my twitter and instagram accounts for a few days. The things I do for googling jurors. Hopefully I’ll be back to my public ways by Wednesday.
