This next month promises to be one that’s interesting.

Sam will leave tomorrow for 5 weeks, coming home once for a weekend. It’s part of training that most soldiers have to do each year, he’s missed the majority of them because each time it happens we’ve been in the middle of a crisis. I miss him terribly but after a couple of days Bella and I settle into our own routine. We keep busy that days go quickly.

I have some fun stuff coming up on the blog. I try to be careful how much I “promote” vs write on here, but days go by without me wanting to write a word. So I don’t. I try not to force myself into writing just because I should or I don’t want to do back to back giveaways.

Babble’s internal site has been down for 2 weeks so it’s been an unexpected break –  but also left me with writer’s block. I find that the more I write, the easier it is to. The less I do, the more stuck I seem to become.

My sister is getting married next month – the biggest dilemma of all that is Charlie. He’s a great traveler but once we get there he’s a pain to keep track of.

We loved Easter. I felt like it was a mini Christmas only better. I had this sense of peace all day. We went to church, lunch, then came home and relaxed while Sam got all his gear ready.


Oh, and I cleaned. Surprise! 😉

We all dyed Easter eggs Saturday night and Bella peeled them on Sunday. She thought that was just about the coolest thing ever. She wanted to know why it wasn’t gooey (we let her crack the eggs when we cook). Then why the eggs became hard when they were cooked in water. Then if she could smell them.

So that’s about it. We’ve had a pretty low key couple of weeks. Hope you all had a wonderful Easter.

    Those weeks away are definitely tough. Matthew was actually away when I found out about Weston’s heart condition. He was also away during a breakout of foreign grain beetles in our house when I was pregnant with Henry. Different circumstances, but both tough to deal with alone. I’ll be thinking of you this next month!

    God bless you during these weeks without your Sam. Love the curiosity and questions of a child. Hope you'll join me on my writing journey: http://www.50somethingwoman.blogspot.com
