No, I haven't fallen off the face of the Earth, or died, or stopped blogging altogether. I don't even have a good excuse for my long absence. I simply fell out of the habit of blogging, and even having good material to share didn't motivate me to do so. Why the sudden return then you may ask? It is all about the timing.
So far December has been a bit of a roller coaster for my family, filled with ups and downs. Right now we are having a bit of a down turn. It started when my son came down with a high fever, which turned into strep throat and a bad sinus infection. My MiL came down with pink eye while helping me keep the kids seperated. I got both the sinus infection and pink eye, then DD came down with the sinus infection. The bad news is that I look like I have been punched in the face due to the combo of red eye and dark circles from lack of sleeep. Also, this is my first ever bout of pink eye, and it is more unconfortable than I expected. On the plus side the kids are far more doscile than normal, and Ihave gotten some knitting done while sitting with them.
