Where I've Been

I've been gone because...

I went to Utah
I went to Lake Powell
my start-up disk was full
my internal hard drive is full
I lost a bunch of photos (like a couple thousand... basically just Ellie's entire first year of life.)
I stopped taking photos
I wanted/want to throw my computer on some really hard asphalt and never use a piece of technology as long as I shall ever live
I waited in line at the Apple store twice for the "Genius Bar" and almost lost my mind
sometimes it's fun to just live life and not have to worry about blogging about it
I've got better things to do... like watch Sesame Street with Ellie and rearrange my kitchen cupboards
and... I just, quite frankly, lost my blogging "juice."

But life is so good, and when I think about that, it kinda breaks my heart that I haven't been taking pictures of it (which I would never develop and inevitably lose to the black hole of computer problems) and blogging about it. (And that's totally aside from the fact that my parents and sibling are about to wring my neck for my lack of updating.) I'm feeling abundantly blessed, and happy, and high on life. I've realized that my mantra for life is "mindfulness." I love having a plan, a vision, a goal of what I want my life to look and feel like every day, and I've been working hard to nurture those ambitions. I love that BJ and I are in this stage of life where we have a family, and we get to create what the BJ Pugmire Family world is. Life is good. Life is good. God is good. I end my sermon.
Hopefully I'll be back sooner, rather than later.
