That is the question.
It seems that after such a long blogging break, I'm finding it hard to find the time to sit down for more than 30 seconds at the computer. I have 770 emails that sit, unread, in my inbox. I have stories to share that I want to write before the details start to fade from my memory.
But for now, I'm swamped. Life is in overdrive since we returned home two weeks ago. I am getting ready to have a second surgery to correct a complication from the salivary gland removal. We're doing standardized testing to finish out our school year at home. Jason had eye surgery last week. Our good friends next door moved away and my kids (and I) miss them dearly. Sarah learned to ride her bike without training wheels and the sun has finally started to emerge in Washington. It's so wonderful/crazy/busy/fun/stressful/exciting right now!
I have 127,934 pictures from my trip that want to be shared. We just had to put 4 new tires on our van. It's a 2006 Chevy Express 3500 and it's now got 117,000 miles on it. We bought new tires when we were in Arizona, less than 2 years ago. But since I just drove 7,995 miles (yes, almost 8,000!) just on this last trip, the tires were done. I need to take a break from road tripping before we end up needing a new van. (And ours is paid for, so I don't want to buy anything for a long time!)
This week promises to be just as busy as the last two weeks have been. But I promise that I'm going to sit down and write again.
Part of me wonders if I should keep up with this whole blogging thing... and then part of me thinks that if it weren't for this blog I would never remember half of my life over the last several years. And someday I'd like to write a book so I probably ought to keep writing things down as they happen, right? Otherwise, my story would be something like "had twins, had twins again, lost my mind. The End."
