je regrets

my apologies for my lack of blogging and reading blogs. (turns out i don't like to visit my own blog when i haven't updated my own in forever). after repeatedly telling myself that i should take my blog down if i wasn't going to update it, i have decided maybe i should just. update. the. d*#$. blog. so here i am. i have indeed missed all of you. my thanks to those who responded on my most pathetic previous posts. (kayla, thanks for the kick in the pants; sorry it has taken me so long to actually respond with more.) hopefully, i will give you much better stuff to comment on in the near future.

i have decided to start using nicknames for my children. if i could go back and get my last name out of my URL, i would. since i don't feel like going through the hassle of a new blog, i thought i would at least try and be discrete with their names and bury the old posts with their names on it through a mass pile of new posts. i also continually debate making the blog private, but for now i'll just hope my famine of posts have killed off any psycho strangers that may be reading. (psychos that i personally know and love are always welcome to read!)

Oh good. I'm glad your personally known psychos can still read your blog. I thought you were about to ban me from it.

Have you had any problems with psychos? I have been blogging for about three or four years and have never had a strange or rude comment - maybe because not very many people read my blog?

@ nat - love how your pic matches your comment here.

@stace - one time some man from the phillipines left a comment saying he was reading my blog. maybe he was harmless, but i didn't love that. i tried to put a tracker once on my blog, but i didn't it right and have yet to set up another. i think your blog has more readers than you realize. i. love. your. blog.

"After repeatedly telling myself that I should take my blog down..." Oh, April, go easy on yourself. We all love you whether you update or not. Glad to see you back and *love* all the pictures!

ps- I deleted the one from Sally because I didn't realize I was commenting as her. Apparently I was signed in under account. Oops.


"is that lily holding baby lily?" -lily's response when i showed her a picture of gracie holding her when lily was a baby.

"drama class is actually a lot of fun." -gracie (this is only humorous in that grace seemed surprised by how much she likes drama class. this from my child who we refer to as "a drama queen" when she is not around.)

"mom, you can go with my teacher and i'll stay home with japie and evan. daddy can go to work, and i'll be the mommy" -lily, in response to learning that she would be going to preschool next year instead of this year.

"mom, if you don't get rid of that smell soon, you're going to have to buy a new car." -gracie when it took me a couple of days to clean out my car after returning from a road trip.

"mommy, they have dress-ups for you!" -lily while walking by the prom dress section at macy's.

"i said the prayer "last"-erday." -lily's replacement word for "yesterday."
