Where has the time gone?

So, I pretty much suck at keeping my blog updated as of late.  Yadda, yadda,, I'm super busy with work and raising kids and being a wife and all that jazz... plus, when I have free time, I just don't like being at my computer!
So here's a random bullet list of what's been up with the jelli family..

  • Christmas was super fun, family time.  Ali still doesn't get the concept of Santa yet, but she did enjoy ripping wrapping paper from presents- and exclaimed "I'm so excited!" each time she opened a present
  • KK and I got a night out on New Year's Eve- my parents took the girls over night and we went to dinner and a movie. It was very relaxing, and so nice to spend time with my husband. I really love that guy- I'm so glad he's mine! 
  • Avery is 8 months old already- and is 22 lbs of love and is such a mellow, happy baby- much like her big sister was. 
  • Ali drives Avery bananas- but does try to love her and be kind to her, in her own 2 year old big sister way... Avery screams every time Ali comes near- kinda funny and maybe setting a precedent for the rest of their childhood!
  • Ali is the cutest 2 year old ever- I love each phase, but year 2 has been pretty hilarious! She's pretty smart and sassy, and I love to hear what she comes up with!  She told me yesterday that she needs to shut up... even though she doesn't know what the word means and was told that it is a bad word and we should never say it- I got a kick outta that one
  • I feel pretty awesome because I got 2 pairs of jeans and 6 sweaters (all name brand!) at Goodwill for $40!  I love a good bargain!
  • I have a student-teacher every other day at school- she will take over my classroom in 2 weeks... giving me some time to catch up on lesson planning (and reading some books in the library) and I am so looking forward to that much needed breather
  • I am currently starting  a war with the neighbor who lives behind us.  We have been friendly up to this point.. but she stays home and is some what (uh hum) entitled.  She called me the other day to complain that the 2 days we left our dog outside last week he barked for 20 minutes, waking her up. This was at 7:00 in the morning... and considering that I get my ass outta bed every day at 5 to be at work by 7, I just don't have any sympathy at all for her.  So basically I'm leaving the dog out, and I'm sure she's stinkin pissed, and I'm so not looking forward to the confrontation/awkward neighborhood drama that is going to come with this one- I'm usually one to let stupid crap like this go... but it's the principal of it- princess!
  • I'm a pretty happy camper these days.  Things are good with work- I'm not feeling so burdened with everything... and things are great with the kids and the hubster.  I live a blessed life and am pretty dang thankful!
  • I hope to keep this thing more up to date- it's hard to know where to start when you get so behind, sheesh!
  • I hope some of my fav blogs (you know who you are) would keep their blogs updated too- I miss you guys!

I've so missed reading your blog, too, and have been soooooo terrible at keeping mine up. I've been more of a fb junky lately becuase it doesn't require pics and long stories to keep updated. 1-2 sentence blurbs is all I'm capable of these days. Find me on fb. And I sooo need to do an update post. I have so much to catch up on that it really is quite overwhelming. Oh, and thanks for the stroller thingy. WE LOVE it! :):) xoxo.

Glad to see you am the fam are all doing well!! Happy way belated Holidays!!


I have been in the same boat as you. I am just not on my computer any more and if I am it is work related.

I have been reading like crazy lately and really am enjoying it! Maybe I will update my blog soon. Maybe. :-)
