II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Don't take it personal...

but I haven't been blogging much lately because I just don't have anything interesting to say. And when I'm not blogging much--I tend to stay away from the computer more--which means I also don't read blogs either. So I'm sorry if I haven't read or commented on your blogs lately, it's nothing pesonal....just been busy with life.
In the past 14 days, Brooklyn has actually gone to school for 3 1/2 days! Wednesday (almost 2 weeks ago) she went to the dentist and missed half a day of school. Then she stayed home Thur. & Friday with a sore throat. She went back to school on Monday and then we got iced in and school was cancelled the rest of the week!! Now, finally, it was Monday again and time to go back to school but she was sick again/still. I took her to the doctor this morning and he said she has acute laryngotracheobronchitis. Basically--she has no voice whatsoever and has a very swollen, irritated, sore throat and neck. He excused her from school until Wednesday. But...I think we are actually going to let her go tomorrow because she is not feeling bad anymore, she's not contagious and they are having their big "100th day of school" party tomorrow and she doens't want to miss it.
On another note...Sunday after church, we decided to take Grant and get his hair all cut off!! We've been growing it out for a looooong time now, but it was starting to really look shaggy and sloppy, so we went back with a short cut with a little faux-hawk/spike in the front and it looks SO CUTE! I'm so glad we did it. I was nervous at first because I really loved his long hair and had grown attached to his little curls in the back..but now I can see he looks much neater and cleaner and even cuter with it short.
As for me and Matt..nothing is really new with us. We went and had our taxes done last week and they are already filed and we are waiting on our return to hit the bank. It's exciting because we are VERY focused on getting out of debt this year and with this extra money, we will be able to pay off his truck and a few little credit card debts that we owe. YAY! Just a few more to go and then all we'll owe for is the house! Maybe, if we're really dedicated--which we are--by this time next year, we'll be to that point! yay!
Okay, well, I wanted to write more but I am suddenly very sleepy so I think that'll be all for now. G'night y'all! XOXO!

I know how you feel. Most times when I go for long stretches without blogging I simply do not have anything exciting to talk about. I mean who wants to hear about how many times I pick up the toys in the living room in one day or how many hours overtime Jason has been working (LOTS!). Most days when he comes home from work I am totally disgusted to realize I'm still in my pajamas and haven't brushed my hair or even my teeth all day. GROSS me out!

It's OK to not blog if you can't find time, don't feel you have anything "blog-worthy" to say or just plain don't want to. Just as long as you come back after a bit to tell us you're ok. We love you and love reading your blog!
