We are indeed, still alive!

It was never my intention to leave my blog sad and neglected for an entire month! I realize, however, that about one month per year is not enough time to see everyone you want to see AND blog at the same time. I would have a few minutes here and there but think to myself "There's no way I can catch up on everything I need to post about in these short minutes." So, I put off posting until I could sit down and have awhile to write. That kinda backfired because now I have even MORE to write about and even LESS time to write about it! Last night we went to visit my crazy very energetic cousins and my aunt said something to the effect of "I'm so far behind on my blogging that I think I just need to start from today and not try to catch up on anything!" That actually seems like a pretty sound idea. I still plan on posting pictures from our trip, but I'm not going to stress out about getting every little detail down because that's just not possible.

For now, I'll leave you with a photo of Martijn and I in Fabulous Las Vegas! Look at those blue skies!

Welcome to Vegas!

Dang! I'd hoped your long absence meant you'd absconded with billions of dollars and were busy constructing a mansion-like hideout in the Bolivian Andes for you and all your friends. I was expecting my plane tickets to arrive in a very discreet envelope any day now.

So, does this mean I should call my boss and tell him I'm not really quitting and that I don't, in fact, wish he'd get sucked into a street sweeper, or do I just wait a couple more weeks? Because I hand-painted a three-foot canvas of the whole street-sweeper-sucking moment and it'll be pretty awkward taking it back at this point... *and*! Michaels charged $98.52 to frame it! Yeesh! I'm not sure I could get a refund at this point.

I can deal with no posts when we get to see and chat like we did tonight... Thanks again for joining us and for dinner and games...

I was hoping you were coming back! I noticed your blog entry updates weren't showing up on my reader, so I even checked to make sure I was still subscribed ;-)

Welkom terug!

Looks like you are having a fabulous time!! Look at that sunshine! gosh I miss that. Don't worry about blogging..just enjoy yourself:)

I'm glad you are enjoying time with your family!! And, I totally agree with your Aunt about blogging. Years ago I started scrapbooking and wanted a perfect memory book. Because I couldn't keep up with it I stopped doing it altogether because I couldn't keep up. I vowed not to do that with my blog. I'll post when I can and visit other blogs when I can. Anything more than that and I'd not be enjoying it. I blog and read to relax, nothing else.
Somewhat it has become a little more though. I have gotten to know people here and people aren't a hobby. I think of people if I don't see them here in a while, like you, and so I am really happy you let me know you are doing well. :)
