MIA...aka Friday Ramblings



So. 

You're still here.

Hard to believe since I've been MIA for nearly a month.  Really, I've been MIA all summer.  I never intended to be so 'blog shallow'.  It just worked out that way. 

Just so you know...   I do have a few things in the works.

Like,  a couple of book reviews, a DVD review and double giveaway (coming this weekend!), a cool math game review and giveaway, a few posts on Autism (that have been in the works for months), a summer descriptive, and of course, a full detailed diary of my son's Make-A-Wish trip to Orlando back in June.  Speaking of Make-A-Wish, I've been asked to be a MAW e-ambassador, so look forward to some cool wish stories in the future.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Would you believe that two of our 3 computers bit the dust in the past few days?  It's true!  

When you have 3 boys fighting over the one that's left and it belongs to YOU, well, what do you do?  You hand it over so your boys can do schoolwork, play Minecraft, add to itunes, post on Facebook....you know, the important stuff! 

Which leaves me with very little time to play work.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So, I do have an excuse for the past couple of weeks. 

Oh, and before that I was busy decluttering. 

You see, I was sick most of the early summer.  I sat around watching Netflix and staring at this growing pile of stuff in my bedroom.  I vowed that I would tackle it and every other pile in the house as soon as I was well again.

I'm proud to say that I did just that.  I still have 2 closets and the garage left, but I've made great progress!  Not a chance I'll be picked for an episode of Hoarders, no sir.  Not anymore.   

Okay, maybe it wasn't THAT bad.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I lost my camera.  The new one.  Well,  *I* didn't lose it.  I put it on the shelf for safe keeping.  It disappeared. Hence, this photo-less post.  Do you know how hard it is to blog without a camera??  I'm thinking maybe it will reappear when my son cleans his room.  

Like that's gonna happen...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Speaking of said son...he has joined a new band and will be playing his first public gig with this band TONIGHT.  On Beale Street.  Yes, THE Beale Street.  Pretty exciting stuff for a teen guitarist with big dreams.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Since it's time for my little one's school bus, I'll wrap up my ramblings for now.

Thanks for hanging around during the drought.

Seriously.
