I laughed so hard at this the DragonMonkey thought I was crying.
Also, yes, I am still alive. Every time I sit down to finish up any one of my half-written posts or other stuff I am working on, I think about this:
and I turn off the computer and head back outside with the kids.
Who would have thought I’d be more tan in Oregon than I ever was in California?
Anyways, sorry for the lack of updates and stories. Don’t worry – I’m still accruing them. I’ve discovered that, sadly, I’m just as socially inept in Oregon as I was in California. Oh well.
I’ve been quiet because I’ve been busy…. and because I’ve been happy.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to go make blackberry jam… from the blackberries I picked myself.
Or, as the kids call them, Biebers. Fresh, homemade Bieber jam.
If you are family, and you get one for Christmas, please act surprised.
