Yes, I realize that it's been an entire week since I last pushed publish here at 4under3's imaginative outlet. But thanks for the polite reminder.
And, no, I didn't devise a sick and wrong plan to withhold bits and pieces of our life in hopes of sending each one of you dedicated bloggy friends into a whirlwind of trepidation, wondering where in the world I was.
I didn't drown in the stockpot of my newest favorite Loaded Baked Potato soup, along side a piping hot loaf of Beer bread that: I [heart], is way too easy to make, and is excessively too good to be true. (Although there's some truth to that last one.)
No, I didn't take up a late New Year's resolution to end all my time in the blogosphere. I don't do resolutions. But if I did, it might sound something like: Eat More Baked Potato Soup topped with an overdose of bacon crumbles, shredded cheddar, and chives.
And--to set things straight, for Julia's preschool teacher, Sunday school teacher, and all--I have not been away from my computer because of being stricken with morning sickness.
We have no new bun in our oven!
While Mr. Marvelous and I encourage creative thinking within the little minds of this house, we're working on teaching our eldest how to start made up stories with, "Once upon a time..." That way, "Once upon a time...my mommy was pregnant, and Once upon a time...I caught a whale with my princess fishing pole in Florida," makes much more sense. Wouldn't you agree?
And no--tongue in cheek--there was no disagreement here on the homefront about how we spend our extra time. It had nothing to do with ESPN, blogging, or tv. And, I didn't try and get my point across--here on the homefront--for an entire week, by withholding posts. (Gosh, this is starting to sound like a Not Me! post, now isn't it?)
It's just that nothing very stirring, attention-grabbing, or post worthy happened all week.
Bit of fun, people. Bit of fun.
But, we're back.
And, to start you back guessing, tonight this will definitely be used:
Any guesses as to what it is?
