When you live in a houseful of boys, you will talk more about bodily functions than you ever thought was possible.

This year, Sauce coined the term "clogger." Need I explain?

I didn't think so.

For the last several months my brain has had a clogger.  I knew it was bad when I overheard my in-laws say to my beloved that I quit blogging altogether.

Not so in my head.  Just so on the screen.

Let me tell you the thought process I have been struggling with:  The school year started in a whirlwind and I found that my schedule was busier than I thought.  Much to my surprise, there was no time to get pedicures, eat bon bons, watch soap operas, or read romance novels.  Forget keeping a clean kitchen too.

Sure, I have more time to myself, but it is in VERY small chunks, and my running around meeting buses, volunteering in classes, and squeezing in errands (these pesky men still want to eat - the nerve!) dominates that time.

When some time had passed and I realized that I missed blogging about Halloween, Thanksgiving, our gaggle of visitors, and even Christmas, I felt like, "WTF" (no I would never say that!) "Where do I start?"

There are so many great things going on in our lives right now.  I am just having a clogger in getting back in the rhythm of telling them.  So, for the month of February, I'm going to work to get back into the habit of telling our stories.  And if that habit sticks, I'll be back for good.

You can thank this chick for kicking me into gear.  She is a real writer - go see her stuff and get ready to laugh.  (Are you happy now Nat?)


  1. I'm so relieved! I can sleep tonight because you blogged! And later this week, I'll be SLEEPING ON A NEW MATTRESS! More on that later...but welcome back!

  2. Yay!! I'm glad to hear you're recommitting! I love your blog!! You are the best!

  3. Happy to hear your "voice" again! Thought of you often cuz we're getting inundated with Park City commercials everywhere. Are the ads working...? are you going insane with all the Californians in your space? Hope to catch up on your happenings this month.

  4. hooray!!! i'm so glad you're back. and i would love to hang out with those boys of yours someday...they sound so, so much like mine!!

  5. Good to have you back online. I missed my favorite author!
    Suggest new toilets for your men - Kohler makes a super duper maxi flush model - no more cloggers - promise! Just don,t let Squirt fall in - he too may be flushed away!

  6. hear, hear! welcome back, I've missed you! and I love the terminology. will have to use it myself.

    also fun to read about your eye fix. totally awesome.


About Me

My photo
Messy and wonderful perfectly describes my life as a wife and mom of five. I'm passionate about advocating for orphans by telling their stories and encouraging adoption and orphan care. My schedule is messy and wonderful as I am charged with four sons and one daughter. We love living in our little mountain ski town. We do a little camping, a little skiing, a little hunting, and a lot of laughing and loving. Life is dirty and loud around here but we wouldn't want it any other way. Okay, maybe a little less dirty!
