so behind

i'm so behind. it feels like in EVERY area. noticeably the blog. i LOVE blogging. it annoy's me that i'm so far behind but it probably doesn't help that i have over 2000 pictures that were taken on our Hilton Head vacation to sift through. i know. ridiculous. :)

i hate to post out of order but i may have to and fix it later. it's been a busy few weeks around here and i have so much to update on beyond the vacation.

things like a new found love of couponing, having a new patio installed, Anthony's 1/2 marathon, first time out on my sister's boat, my decision to train for and run the OBX 1/2 marathon in November, Jackson's first soccer game today, and just regular fun stuff. i have GOT to get a handle on it! y'all practically know NOTHING about me anymore. can you see i have a flair for the dramatic???

i did get bored again and changed my background. :) i was too overwhelmed to deal with the 2000 pictures so i only got one measly post up. been up since 5 this morning so i think i'll call it a night and hope i'll find some time to do more tomorrow.

hope you're having a great weekend!

When I was hearing such negative things about blogging and questioned doing my own, you helped me see - through your solid reasons of why you blog - that it was ok to continue mine. Keeping this record for your family and always doing it as until the Lord (our "Audience of One") - you aren't truly behind on this beautiful tapestry.

I just had a friend post her July 4th pics if that helps you feel better. :)

Oh My goodness......Mimi IS behind! Our little Jackson, playing soccer! Oh, I wish I could have seen him! How did he do? I just know he had a wonderful time and I just bet every one else had a great time just watching him! Congratulate him for Mimi and Papa!

Mimi and Papa

it's all mimi's fault that you're so behind. 2000 pictures? MAN that is overwhelming! don't worry - i have a list a mile long to get accomplished too. hang in there - one step at a time!

I am so with you on the's making me get behind on my blog big time! I find myself reading deal blogs all the time, instead of doing a million other things. But it's so good to SAVE$$$$!!!

Courtney said...

you all REALLY need to share about this couponing thing! i don't think i have time for it...but i'd love to hear more!

{and good to know you're still alive! :-)}

Vonda said...

I haven't even started couponing yet and I'm already behind...BUT I'm about to post my first blog in almost a month. Yee haw! Can't wait to catch up on all of your great pics when you post them! And hope you took pics of Jackson's soccer game. I'm sure he was a little ham out there.

Hey Beth,
Ya'll look like you had a great time. I need to plan on getting together with Vonda since she is just a few hours away. It will have to wait a few more weeks though. Ken is trying to get his final done before we leave for Kansas City. His brother's getting married and we will be gone Oct 8-20.

In the meantime I have home schooling, making the rest of Gabby's outfit that she is wearing to the wedding. I am working on a huge blog project. It is such exciting news but I can't share it yet, be sure and come by my blog OCT 1-Mark your calendar you won't want to miss it. I have a cool give-a-way starting on Monday so let all your friends know to come put their name in.
Lots going on.

Be sure to come by tonight around 9pm (Eastern time) for the announcement so you don't miss out. I promise-it good-really really good.
Its So Very Cheri

Hey Beth,
I feel like I know you. I am friends with Janet and Heather. Your sweet hubby taught our daughter in awanas last year. I didn't put it all together until the other day I saw you two at church together. An "ah-ha!" moment! =)
Great blog! I'll be back!
