Where in the world is Princess?

The princess is back!! <----total lie. I'm just dropping by.

I'm so sorry guys. I didn't even realize how long it had been since my last post. My life has been an absolute whirlwind the past few months weeks. I appreciate the complaining hearing from lots of you and the requests to put up a new post. Those of you who are from my local area know what slave drivers how busy our school keeps us the last few weeks of the year. And if you live in my neighborhood like KL, you have seen me drive back and forth and to and fro non-stop. (Thanks for the friendly waves......and the diabolical laughter under your breath...you just wait until your kids are a tiny bit older!)

Here's what we have been doing in a nutshell. Both boys finished up their baseball and flag football seasons. Both of their teams played in the flag football championship game. One team won by a landslide, the other lost a heartbreaker in the last second. Literally...the last second.






Baseball was a ton of fun and both boys had some great kids on their teams. It was sad to see it end......though it's really not over, because our youngest made one of the Allstar teams. Sooo.....no break from baseball yet! Other than that, I have been at the school every stinking day a lot. Between field days, race days, water day, awards day, K5 graduation, history day, and whatever other reason they can think of to get parents up there volunteering....I've been busy! Not complaining though ok, maybe a little since I love being involved in my kids school. It's all over now though. Our last day of school was today.

*insert happy dance*


Brag alert....both boys had a fantastic year and were highly decorated on awards day. I could not be any prouder of them. We are so fortunate to live in a school district that has swarms of awesome teachers. We will miss the incredible teachAHs *sobs* we had this year, but are super excited about the two teachers my boys have been assigned for next year. (Even though one of them kills poor defenseless birds with her car...*ahem*.)

So now, summer begins. It's my most favorite time of the year. I the boys get to sleep late. We spend countless hours lounging by the pool or wake boarding on the lake. We stay up late and have absolutely no structure. Maybe our pace will slow down enough that I will be able to fire up the puter and spend some time with you guys as well.

I have missed spewing my thoughts into cyberspace blogging. I hate that I have not been around to read other blogs. I've been absent from Twitter and email as well. While it makes me feel good that you noticed I was gone, I also feel very guilty. One of you even told me that her "life was cold and bleak without my inspiring words of humor and that she would surely cease to exsist if I did not return to blogging soon." Or maybe it was something like, "I checked your blog today and didn't see anything new." Either way, it means the same thing......right? *nod your head and agree here*

So here is what I promise to you from now on:

I, Princess of Sarcasm, do solemnly swear to put my family's needs first and blog when I have time from now on!

I know, it's not much. But it's all I can promise right now. I will make an effort to post and visit you when I can. (If there's anything important going on, please notify me. I'm so out of the loop right now!) I'll even pop by Twitter when I get a chance. But right now, I'm off to make some PB&J's. The sun just peeked out a bit and I think we'll go celebrate the beginning of summer at the pool. If I could see my computer screen in direct sunlight and if I thought it were safe to take my laptop around all that splashing water, I would blog poolside all summer. But there is no way I would ever endanger my lovah, Mac(Book).

So to sum it all up.....I have not quit blogging!

Ya'll can't get that lucky rid of me THAT easy....

Sounds like how this past month and current week are going for me. Change the sport to soccer. Wish I could say it's all over, but weather extended try outs to tonight, and GW was asked to be a guest player for a different club at their tournament this coming weekend.

School isn't over until next Tuesday :(

I can empathize with you being MIA

For those who are interesting in the facts, I do not kill birds. I can't help it if my magnetic personality pulls people and animals, alike, into my path. How was I suppose to know that it would happen even while driving a vehicle at breakneck speeds in order to arrive at school on time?! The poor thing was so taken in by me that it decided to hang on for the whole 20 minute ride. ;( Love the blog, Kim!

Erin said...

yay for getting to sleep late! i can't wait for my kids to do that. sigh.

The Manic Mommy said...

LambAround said...

Welcome back! I'll do a happy little dance right beside you and cringe at the unfortunate little bird.

My Alero can't resist them either.

I totally need to make that promise to! Hubby grounded me from the computer because I've been blogging (in his opinion) too much and not making enough time for fam! But look at you! Girl, you're more than a princess! You are rockin it like the Queen of the Kingdom. Way to go!

Mama Hen said...

As a single father working way too many hours, I sympathize with your plight. I really do. As a dude who likes reading your stuff, I say "get yo ass writing and get some new shit up here..."
