Where does all the time go?

Is it hiding under the couch like so many toys?  In a closet?  I cannot accept that it has been an entire month and more since my last post. What am I doing??  I don’t know.  Certainly not making time to sit down and quietly write about our life with little people.  I have, however, been penning stuff on a legal pad before bed.  But it isn’t the same as “publishing” the highlights of our life.  Facebook isn’t the same-at all-although it does provide a nice reminder of what has been going on in a very limited way.  

*and there is the reminder of why I haven’t been blogging:  quiet play in the playroom, me at the kitchen counter, hopeful that everyone was okay.  Turns out Emmy had escaped, climbed the stairs, and was up in Ollie’s room.  When I asked either big kid where she was:  “I dunno.  Not here.”*

But we have been having a fun and staying busy (not healthy, sadly).  School and Halloween and afternoon playing and time change and a few grandparent visits.  I have tons of pictures to upload and hope to get on board with my month-long gratitude postings.  For right now, everyone is quietly, cooperatively playing and giving me a few moments to jot down these notes.  Small miracles.
