I Have Been A Very Lazy Blogger!

The busies of life, kids, jobs and all the nonsense that comes along has kept me from writing lately. That includes my housewives blog! shame on me. I know I need to stop making up excuses... but I just can't help myself. I know that's no excuse.. but imagine having your boss call you at the last minute to see if you could work!! This is what I have to put up with. I also had baby shower, birthdays, and anniversary all in a period of 2 weeks. My husband and I celebrated our 7th anniversary a week ago. We went to this wonderful place called 15 Fox Place in NJ, and spent more than I care to admit. But overall we had a wonderful time, accompanied by our family. And to me, family time is priceless.

Now I haven't been all that bad you know! Aside from all the running around, I have been taking the kids to Sunday school for religion. Why is that a shocker?? I don't practice religion to much. But lately I have been seeking a sense of direction, faith and hope. The way our country has been heading has been nerve wrecking to me. I consider all possible scenarios and what would be the best way to handle them, and it simply is too much for me to even consider. The kids do love that I have made this commitment to take them every Sunday, and children should have a sense of religious guidance. I have come to look forward to it, although I am a walking zombie. I end up going to bed at 3:30 in the morning on Saturday nights and getting up at 7:45 on Sunday morning. Boy do I miss my sleep!! But I can't complain about the fact that while the kids are in their corresponding classes, I get to gather with other parents and there is that sense of "yes!! adults". Now don't laugh at me, I have been missing some adult interactions and conversations. I can finally replace all the googoo gagas, and mom, and whys, and I wants with what did you do this week, what events are happening, and Christian parenting advice. 

I have also started early holiday shopping for the first time ever! I can't even contain myself because this will take a whole load off my shoulders as the holidays are nearing. What have I been taking advantage of lately? Some great places such as Rue La La (psss.. for myself), Zulily (great place for mothers to be and kids' toys, clothes and more), and of course My Points. I have another gift card on the way, this time I decided to go with Kohls. I can't wait!! Add another $50 to this years points earnings. 

My next post I will discuss a book that I picked up at Barnes & Noble called "The Roots of Obama's Rage" by Dinesh D'Souza. This author goes into the upbringings of President Obama and what shaped him into the politician that he is today. Super interesting read and I have truly began to see why things are the way they are today. 

'Til next time...
