Bloggy blahs... and birthday pictures

I guess I've had a little case of the bloggy blahs...... just haven't been in the mood to blog. I don't know why and I hope I get inspired again. I use to use the early mornings to write posts and visit my favorite blogs but now that I have a middle schooler my day starts much earlier so that hasn't been working... unless I want to get up at 5:00 am and I don't think that will happen anytime soon... Also between both boys in football and homework..etc. It's keeping us very busy.

I did have a birthday last week on Tuesday. We decided to wait until the weekend to celebrate since we had football practice in the evening. I still had a nice day. Mark and I went to lunch and then I just relaxed most of the day until the kids got home from school. We headed off to football practice but got a call on the way that it was cancelled due to wet fields!! We made a u-turn and went out for dinner. We weren't planning on birthday cake until the weekend when Grandpa (DAD) could join us but Mark surprised us with the cutest cupcakes!

Then on Sunday we had a nice lunch with Dad and came home and enjoyed ice cream cake!

Mark even had Skylar and Max sign a card!!

Sunday after lunch.........

The cupcakes and the cake look yummy......I am glad you had a good birthday.

I'm having a hard time getting back in my groove too. I have some blog ideas rolling around in my head, I just need to sit down and write. I'm not sure exactly what I'm doing.

Happy Birthday!

I completely understand about the bloggy blahs. With school starting, homework, baseball, music, etc. there seems be more things that need to be done...and there is still only ONE of me and 24 hours in a day. :)

I'm looking forward to visiting your blog and having you visiting my blog when the time is right. :)
