The only thing I don't like about having a blog (not that I should even be allowed to act like a normal blogger or even that I have a blog because I could be convicted of blog neglect) is that everyone knows when my last post was: February 14. More than three months ago. I am behind on everything in my life--laundry, dishes, housecleaning, scrapbooks, weeding, and anything else there is to be behind on. Fortunately for me, the date I last cleaned the toilet isn't posted anywhere on the internet. My name is not listed anywhere on the internet for others to see that I last changed my kids' sheets seventeen days ago (or so). I feel a little anxiety every time I see my name listed at the very bottom of someone else's blog list along with how long ago my last post was. As the days have turned to weeks and then months, it has seemed more and more hopeless that I would catch up.

I have so many cute pictures to post--Lili's birthday party and Spanish and English family parties, Easter, Women's Conference, Cor's 60th birthday celebration, Sunshine Generation performances, T-ball games, Memorial Day. Then there are these zany people I live with that I could write about--Edgar now has his concealed weapon permit, Ruben is fond of saying I'm the "BIG mommy ever!" I hope he means "best". Poor Lili is struggling with allergies and mosquito bites. Little Marcos, whom I've always called my little monkey, is finally eating solids and he adores bananas.

So there. That's as caught up as I'm going to get for now. I look forward to seeing that my last post was hours and days ago. Maybe I'll come up with something else in the next quarter.

I promise I never had any bad thoughts about your blog were too far on my blog list to remember you even had a blog. Now that wasn't called for. I love you. If you did write everything you did, it would be staggering. You are an amazing force for good. You are the BIG sister ever.

I think you are allowed to go without blogging for a while. But it is wonderful to hear from you. I hope you are all doing well. We look forward to seeing you in July!

Don't be so hard on yourself. I rarely keep up with my blog too.
Being behind on so many things just means you're being a good mom to your kids and not neglecting them. (Trust me I know, I'm behind too) Love ya! See ya in July.

Amen to being grateful that the date you last cleaned the toilet isn't on the internet! Or...maybe I *should* start posting counters for such things on my blog; it might be the only thing capable of motivating me to do them more often.

Once a quarter is a good goal. I'll check back in August. ;)
