Did you guys miss me last week? Or not so much? I missed you! But it also really felt good not having to worry about what to write. Actually really good! And I was MIA from the blog commenting too. Sorry!!! I get such an incredible guilt trip because I don’t want my fellow bloggers to think that I don’t care anymore or that I’m too cool for school. The truth is that visiting and commenting on my friends’ blogs takes up such a huge portion of my day that I needed some time to step back and get some things done. I didn’t get nearly as much stuff done as I wanted to but at least some of it got crossed off.
I’m not going to list all the things that I have to do because some of them are private matters and also behind the scene blogging stuff that completely overwhelms me at times. Like the business side of things. I just want to crawl in a hole and hide rather than deal with this stuff but it needs to get done somehow.
Today we are off to New York city’s German consulate for my son’s new passport. He needs to get fingerprinted and just gathering all the paperwork for this trip was kind of ridiculous. I’m always sweating bullets because I’m afraid I missed something. The German government doesn’t make these things easy for you, that’s for sure!
Anyways, I want to just write about a bunch of things today. For example our yard! It’s a mess after this terribly long winter and there is so much to do. If you have seen our posts from last year than you know that we love our garden but I don’t love going out there right now to get reminded every time of all the things that still need to get done. Ugh!
Staining, staining and staining!!! That’s the key word here and I kind of hate it. It’s so boring.
I hope that my HomeRight sprayer will be able to help me out this year. We never finished last year’s staining.
Get ready for some ugliness, I can’t believe I’m sharing this:
|Stopped staining here!|
|Nice bench, right?|

|I spy my 19 year olds ramp that I built so she can come up and snuggle with me at night.|
