Oh my goodness, it has been way, way too long since my last post. October? What the heck? (OK, here's an aside: I'm actually quite an accomplished swearer, but having kids has made me try really hard to say things like "heck" and "goodness." I'm not always successful, but I try. Anyway, I read something recently that said people who curse tend to be more honest than people who don't, so you can rest assured I'm telling you the truth :)
So I don't really make New Year's resolutions because I feel like they are often too broad and/or unrealistic to succeed, and when they fail, we feel worse about ourselves than we did before we made them. But I do like to make a (short) list of things I'd like to do better, and one of those things is to blog more. You can see I'm doing a bang-up job, it being June and all. Hey, gimme a break; I had a really busy / expensive May and June (more on that later).
I was trying to keep this blog strictly about our travel plans, but since we won't be traveling anytime too soon, that is really restricting what I can write about, and I like writing, so I'm easing that restriction somewhat to write a little more about my family and me instead. You're welcome.
Anyway, this post is just here to say that I still exist, and if you care about that then you should keep looking here for new posts. I have several that I'm working on in my head at the moment, and I will get them into the blog soon, soon, soon. Stay with me people!
