Dear Blogger. . .

I find myself longing for you.
Tonight as we visited Dairy Queen, after feeding the ducks, for Family Home Evening. We chilled eating our dilly bars, and I took the time to look around. I found myself longing for a good blog post. It sure has been a while.
I looked around at all the people, and had the burning desire to know each persons' story. Oddly enough, there were solitary men at four different tables. I wanted to venture over and ask each one why they weren't eating their celebratory ice cream with loved ones????

And so I sat there, half listening to Claire's recitation of Nationwide Insurance commercials and Between the Lions Antics---- (apparently daddy believes the TV is a great babysitter), developing in my head questions for these men, thinking about writing a post. It's been so long since that's happened. Not the, Claire blabbering, but the thinking about writing a post.

I miss blogging. I miss writing. I miss expressing myself. I miss crafting. I miss taking long walks in the morning- with no rush to get anywhere. I miss kissing my husband when he walks in the door after a long days work. This is sounding pathetic-- while I miss all these things and more, there are a few things I have been enjoying.

I am enjoying early dinners, and long evenings, a husband who does the dishes, taking time just sitting and listening to Claire giggle and make up funny stories(cause I have been missing her too). I enjoy arguing with Dylan over who cleans the house the right way, spending weekends together, developing and living on a budget together, a job that allows me to come home happy and fulfilled, not empty and exhausted.

So, I have lots of blessings, especially the blessing of being able to sit in DQ with my family, not alone. Hopefully in the coming weeks I'll have a little more time to devote to writing. Hopefully! In the meantime. . .

I'm still wondering why all those men were there, by themselves eating ice cream, odd???
