Forever and a Day

Hi. It’s been forever and a day, hasn’t it? I fell into a major blogging rut, which sort of carried over into a creativity rut. Not only have I not been blogging, but I also haven’t been crafting or baking. Ok, I still bake occasionally, just not as much as I used to. When I think about this creative rut, it saddens me. I love doing all of those things, so what’s stopping me from doing them? Who knows. I do want to get back into it all though. I miss all of those creative outlets in my life. Enough of this though. Let’s catch you up on what’s been going on lately, shall we?
My sister is getting married in less than a month. I can’t believe that July is sneaking up on me like it is. In May, I hosted her bridal shower, and then earlier this month, I hosted her Bachelorette Party. Both were successful, thankfully!

Work has kept me busy, but has been good. I finished working with my Friday boys. I can’t even tell you how sad I was to leave them, but it was in my best interests. They sent me off feeling very loved though, dropping by with mini cupcakes, roses and some homemade cards.
I’m now down to working 5 days a week with one family. Well, I do still have my nanny share going on, which means another family drops off their little boy several times a month. I’ve been switched over to salary, which means I now get plenty of paid vacation. We’ve been keeping busy with crafts and trips to the park and zoo. Never a dull moment around here.

As for my down time, well, I’ve been trying to fill it up with things to do as well. We’ve been cat sitting for my old nanny family for over two months now. They’ve been trying to sell their house, and don’t want a cat to deter potential buyers. Casey is adorable, so I don’t mind. Stephen and I have been trying to get out for more walks now that the weather has warmed up. I love exploring our community; it seems like we live in such a good one. There was even a quick day trip to the mountains recently.
Oh, and I’ve taught myself how to crochet. I’m working on a baby blanket for my aunt and uncle, who are due in October.

I’m hoping that by writing this post, I’ll be inspired to blog more. Keep checking back, I promise that I’m not ready yet to abandon this blog forever.
