So I disappeared. My friend Kathy noticed and asked me where I was. I don’t know the answer exactly, but maybe there is a name for the place that mothers disappear to when they can’t find themselves in their own life. That is where I’ve been. Is that funny or sad? I’m not sure. Here I am blogging again, so maybe I am back.
A walk on a mountain with my husband and no children has cleared my brain. This points me to three crucial needs in my life.
b. my husband
c. walking with no children–at least occasionally
As for whether or not I will disappear again, I cannot promise. It was by accident in the first place. But to illustrate my time, here are some photos that I took of things that I meant to blog about, proving that it was on my mind.
I just failed to get to the stage of actually sitting down to write.
But I thought about it. So that counts, right?
You can put the posts together in your mind. Creatively.
And full of humor if you don’t mind.
Now that I have done this in summary, I realize how easy it is to capture a thousand words in a picture. I also slightly question why I often do it in a thousand words. Perhaps a break from blogging might be a good thing every now and then.
So do you actually want me to post about any of those things or should we just move on? I’m very task-oriented and you guys are my boss. Kathy, thanks for the kick in the pants! 🙂

I love this post. I loved all the pictures. And I LOVE that shirt your wore to your rehearsal!!!!
Well, if you’re in need of mountains, you should take a trip to visit us… we’ve got mountains galore that you can get to in just a short 15 – 20 minute drive. Sound tempting?? That and I’ll make you guys dinner 🙂
Have to admit I missed your blog. You have a delicious way with words and it makes the distance between us feel much smaller. But I know how very, very busy being a mom can be. I’ll be grateful for whatever you have time to write. 🙂
welcome back, missed you :).
i missed the blog, too! i checked everyday with a disappointed huff when i found the newest post was the old re-post. but then i reminded myself that i can’t depend on katrina to entertain me. for pete’s sake. she has her own three kids, laundry, and exhaustion. 🙂
the three kids looking at the camera set of pics was funny because it is soooo true.
i would love to see the post on cheap decorating… i’ll take any help in that area that i can get.
um, weren’t the animals at the petting zoo scary? i thought so. nate got in that little walk way between the two sets of pens and started crying because the camel poked his head way out and he was freaking looking! poor guy (nate, not the camel). also, where was the haystack maze? i wanted to do that! do you know of any other things like that around? cornfield mazes and such? anyone?
and by “freaking looking” i, of course, meant freaky looking. check before you send, kristen!
