Been Busy; Blogging Has Gone Bust!

Oh, I always have stuff to write about; I constantly think of topics for my Blog and I keep an on-going list so, if for whatever reason I cannot think of a topic, I can refer to it.

Alas, I've been a bit busier than usual since we returned from vacation. I'm surprised I was able to blog about our trip as soon as I did.

What's going on in our household/in my life? Well, it's primarily the final push for our big family reunion that will be held in Durham July 31st-August 4th (with the "official" reunion being held at the B's house on the 2nd). Along with my cousin's wife, Cindy, and a lot of help from Analee and Leann, we've been at this since February! Yeah, February, and it's finally coming to fruition. To say that we are excited is an understatement!

But, along with the excitement comes the need to prepare, prepare, prepare. This means, clean, clean, clean; get all of those little nagging chores done that have remained undone (mostly stuff for Mr. B to do), etc.

But, he finished the frame for the swing yesterday! And, we finally found a wrought iron pub height table to go with the chairs I've had for years and years!

Mr. B and his completed project!

And, I must start thinking about getting everything cooked/prepared ready to consume on the 2nd! We hit BJs on Saturday to get the majority of "the goods"; still more to buy, though.

In addition to this, I was asked to join the Board of Directors for the local symphony. I agreed, and I'm now their secretary. I had my first Board meeting Thursday night; it was extremely interesting but a lot is going on and I have a lot to learn! This involvement will take up more of my time than perhaps I originally banked on, but, from what everyone has told me, it'll be an enriching experience.

And, there's more, but, I'll hold on blogging about that until later this week.

So, you may not see me out in Blog land as frequently as I used to be.

Such is life; turn, turn turn.

Blogging gone bust, I guess. For some reason I didn't realize that it had been a week since the last time you blogged. Guess I was just busy catching up.
