But.... I'm not participating this week, as I'm still recovering from my spring break blog break. I will next week, I promise!
Instead, have a look around. Things are a little different, yes? Hope you like it.
You'll notice that headline only refers to one normal mom. That's me. Lela is taking a big fat bloggy break. You all know what it's like when your heart just isn't in it. Life does that to us sometimes. But she's still awesome and with a little encouragement, maybe she'll still toss me a guest post now and then!! (I KNOW you are reading this, Lela... so feel free anytime!)
While I've been gone on spring break, I've had some good times and some bad times. The sun was out a little, which was nice. My work schedule was medium light, so I had a little extra time with The Boy. We didn't "do" too much together, but at 17, sometimes it's nice just to "be" with him. To be able to really listen when he has something to share, to offer encouragement when he's working on a project, just to enjoy him. Sadly, my husband did not get a job he'd been to multiple interviews for. He'd gotten down to being one of three they were interviewing for two positions. It was heart breaking despite desperately trying not to get my hopes up. We've been there before. Welcome to job searching at age 50 in this economy. It SUCKS. I can't even paint a positive upside right now. Just know it sucks. Maybe I'll find the silver lining somewhere down the road. And if you see an odd sponsored post around here, just know that I'm not really in a position to have high standards when someone offers me some green for a few words. *clears throat*
I'll leave you with this, because I could use a little funny right now, and this has a bit of funny in it, (from Pinterest):
