Blog Neglect

I haven't been checking anyone's blogs lately. I haven't even been checking my own blog lately, which is very unlike me. Why? Well:
1) The weather has been bee-YEW-tiful these past few days, beckoning the Wells girls outside with its siren call. (Despite that pesky melasma that necessitates frequent and copious applications of sunscreen on my face.)
2) I am working on a time-intensive computer-based project, which hogs up my normal blog time (nap time).
3) We've run into just a few (major? minor? who knows) snags in our home-buying process, which has taken the wind out of my sails just the tiniest bit.

Anyway, for this moment, I've been relegated to the bedroom with the computer while John and the girls wrap (or assemble? or hide?) my birthday presents for tomorrow. The sounds coming from the dining room are hilarious. The girls will say something (unintelligible from this distance), and John will immediately "SSSSHHHHH" them, and they will giggle. Then they'll say something else and be shushed again. Whereupon they will giggle again. It's the happiest, most charming, darling conversation, and I can't hear anything they are saying. I can't wait for tomorrow.

Happy birthday!!!
It's okay to take a break from your blog every now and then.
And darn that melasma. It's so annoying, isn't it?

Happy Birthday Em! It's still the 17th Hawaii time, so I'm still good. And, for the record, I knew your birthday was April 17, even before your post. I may not be able to remember all of my brothers and sisters birthdays, but yours is stuck! Hope you had a good one!

Happy (late) birthday! Isn't buying a home such a headache?! Sometimes I still wonder why in the world we bought ours...but it's great at at the same time.
