I posted on Facebook this morning, as I was baking 3 apple pies, trying to make lunch, and mopping my floors all in between Jo's little catnaps, that I wish I had time to blog. A sweet friend left a comment that was like a breath of fresh air that I so desperately needed at that moment. She said, "You have more important things to do. It's just a season." That it is and I am trying desperately to soak up every moment of it. While she is napping, I am trying to keep a clean house, do laundry, help with homework, play with Mel, and cook. Now, I'm grateful that all of you understand my lack of blogging. Having three kids, including a newborn doesn't allow much time for the computer. I'm thankful for my IPhone so that I can catch up with the outside world via Facebook while I am feeding Jo.
On the bright side of things, Harvest 2012 is now in the books! We finished on Monday. What a relief it is to have that over with! It was definitely a tough year because of the drought and also having a baby in the midst of it. All of a sudden I went from being a mom of two fairly independent girls(ages 6 and 4) to a single mother(because of harvest) of 3...including a newborn. I was thrown into the act of balancing three kiddos while trying to recover from labor. There were times when I felt like stretch armstrong and that I was being pulled in 68 different directions. Jo would cry for 3 hours straight in the evening, while B had homework, and Mel needed attention herself. So, to say that I am happy to have harvest over with would be a huge understatement. I'm glad to have my husband back and while we have a great event to remember from October of 2012, it is nice to have one of the worst crop years behind us!
So, as I juggle everything right now, please bear with me. I have a lot to blog about, but little time! Have a great weekend everyone!
