Gone Missing

It's been a crazy month here in my house. So many things going on. Birthdays, parties, preparations for a trip, and more. But I haven't forgotten about you. And some of you haven't forgotten about me. I feel loved when people start taking notice that I haven't been around here.

The biggest part of my month of March has been my son's 5th birthday (still can't believe my baby's that old) and my husband's missions trip. On March 3rd Zachariah turned 5. We had lots of birthday fun on his birthday, and a week later we had a party here for our families. He had a blast and is one spoiled little boy. I'll have to highlight some of his favorite gifts, they might prove to be good gift ideas for you.

Also this month was my husband preparing for his missions trip. He is currently in Africa working on a technology project for a hospital. He and another man from our church started this project vision, raised funds for all the equipment (with the help of our church and friends), and are now bringing it to life with their own hands. My husband couldn't be more excited. He's been to this place* before (I purposefully being a little vague) but it was for construction. Now that the construction is finished, he was thrilled to be involved in this project in particular, because he's an IT person by trade and hobby. So he is over there for 2 weeks.

While my husband is away I try to pack many activities in for my son and I. Being a stay at home mom, we're used to being around each other all the time. But without another person here to break up our days, it can get pretty old fast. We spend last weekend being sick, so we stayed home and rested. But now that we're feeling better, we're having fun. We went bowling last night with my inlaws and had a blast. Other things we're looking forward to doing in the next few weeks are shopping with my mom, visiting my sister and nephew, going to the movie theater (once or twice), and more. If the weather was nicer, we'd definitely enjoy some outdoor activities. Unfortunately it's beginning to cool off again, and we've had some rain as well.

So that's what's happening here on the home front. As far as blogging business, I have been through most of my e-mails this morning to catch up. Hopefully if you were waiting to get a reply from me, you already have. All winners have been submitted up to this point. Later today I will be drawing winners for the remaining open contests. And hopefully today, tomorrow, and from here on I'll be getting more great giveaways posted. I have many already lined up and waiting, so I need to pass those along to you. So many great products to share with you too, and those will be going up as I have time as well. Thanks so much for being a loyal reader here. I treasure each of you. And I hope that you're all having a wonderful week.



*If you are interested in hearing more about Matt's missions trip, you can e-mail me for information. He is blogging about their daily activities while he's there.

My husband has to travel for 2-3 weeks at a time, and with a 2yo and 3yo, that can be brutal. My kids see me 24/7, they need Daddy to break it up. That or lots of trips to the park. LOL.

Sometimes you just gotta take a break from blog life and be in our real life. Looking forward to seeing what you have in store!

I would hate for my husband to have to travel (without me). You're a busy lady!!

Tamara said...

Wow, busy is right! I feel you, Sarah. Life has gotten the best of me this month too. Hopefully we can both get back in the swing of things.
