OH Hey There!!

It has only been a month

(or 5)

since I have spent any time on this here bloggy because:

1. The masses in my midst have monopolized every waking second of my life

until recently when they

congruently developed extraordinary selective hearing skills

therefore forcing me once again into the

position of vocalizing

into the vast cyber universe

as my only option for personal validation.

2. Last fall I applied for a class

to develop a business plan.

The opportunity was sponsored through the local community college (NJC) and funded by the El Pomar Foundation.

And woooo hooooo I got selected!

The businesses participating in the program received 6 college credits,

training to develop a business plan,

a chance to win some $$,

and a handy-dandy-notebook...

(translate--> IPAD!!)

3. My addiction to facebook and instagram became all encompassing and I have only began to come to terms with the issue.

And that, my friends is what I have been doing for the past 5 months...

Oh and painting...

Oh and trying to get the IPAD away from the little mongrels that hog it all day until the battery is dead...

Oh and picking up a toy here and there and tossing some clothes in the washer on occasion...


PS. I ended up loving the class and WINNING the $$$ and am so excited that my business is taking off like crazy and I am getting paid to color paint on people's walls!!

So now I am back to the bloggity

using this fancy keyboard

I inherited from my big sista

that makes a perfect little clickity clack.

It wasn't suited to her gargantuan hubby's fingers. (see below)

Oh if I only had long secretary-like fingernails to add to the joy...

So here are some pics to catch u up...

or if you would rather,

I could just keep rambling??!!?

Ok... a bit of both!

Elsa is doing great!! After a few different attempts to fix the growing pressure in her right eye, the doctors put in a tube shunt. This allows the extra fluid in her eye to drain off. more eye drops (for now)! Her vision continues to grow and has far exceeded what the original prognosis entailed. She is SASSY and SWEET and has her own bubbly perspective on life. We are trying to patch her left eye an hour a day to strengthen the muscles in her right one. And it is a little easier now that we have developed some negotiating skills. She wears the patch as long as: she is chewing bubble gum, playing the IPAD, and I am constantly watching her for the ripping off intervention. We are far from perfect, but doing better.
Josi is keeping busy. She is just finishing up her 8th Grade basketball season, perfecting eye-rolling and has strangely disappeared into her room, appearing only to request food or a car ride.
Levi is anxiously waiting his 16th Birthday next month. I'm not suggesting that our house is chaotic or anything but for some reason he seems really eager to be able to just drive away. On his own. By himself.
Milo has been loving preschool and uses bathroom words whenever he doesn't think I am listening. He has started to learn to read and write which is one of the most amazing things to watch in your kid. I love translating his vowel-anemic words like TRNSFRMRS and SBRTTHTGR.

Big Larry and I are just trying to be adults.

OK not really, but the fight against senility is futile so we just roll with it.

Hope today finds you with sunshine in your soul and a smile across your mug.
