List of Excuses!

I have to apologize for being gone for so long.....I have several excuses, so here they go:

1. It's earth week this week and on the news I saw that they were challenging all families to turn things off and get outside. This means computers, TV's, Video games.....etc. So I thought I'll take that challenge for my kids. Then I realized that in order for them to be outside, I have to be with them which in turn takes me away from everything too!! But we have just been outside or out doing things all week long from the Children's Museum to the Zoo to just going to the park! It's been fun because the weather has been really nice! But today it is raining/snowing (yes I said snowing!!!) so all bets are out the window today! 'Aisea is watching a Thomas the train video and Matai is playing with a petrified piece of pizza right now..........I know ..........I'm a good mom, I am!!

2. I made the silly mistake the other night of showing 'Aisea that you could play "video games" on He has been hooked ever since, so now I have to share the computer!

3. After many weeks of kind of lazily doing school work, Ioane has decided that he needs to get his butt in gear and really start doing his school work hard there is another person I have to share with!! Dangit!!

4. My comptuer's CD/DVD player was broken for the second time and I had to take it to get it fixed, so for a little bit, I didn't even have a computer! But on the plus side, I'm going to make all the CD's for people who wanted one and get them sent off very soon!

So these are all of my excuses!! Hope one works for you and I'll try and be much better about posting!!!!

I've missed your daily posts. You get us hooked and then when you're not posting we are lost. So glad you are back and I love the new wallpaper. You are going to have to teach me how to change mine someday. Sorry about the snow :((

Sounds like you are busy, as always. When are any of us not busy. I really love how you change your page all the time, oh and by the way I have finally come up with a name for my blog so I should be starting soon. Joe will be gone all next week so that will be a perfect time for me to spend my late late nights, since I don't sleep well when he is gone....

I love the new polka dots and the header. Looks Great!! I was thinking about changing mine but it takes me all day.
We're just glad you're back.

Very cute layout! Kacey loves to play on the computer too. Nick Jr. is another good one for games, but Kacey's all-time favorite is It is pretty easy for little people (the kids, not midgets) to navigate.

All those reasons work for me! Bummer about your CD/DVD player! and bummer about sharing! Well at least, they are for good reasons!

Sants said... is evil. We had snow this week, too. Yesterday I froze to hypothermia just watching my son practice soccer.

All your excuses work for me. You should have saved some for the next time ... ;)

Love, Tif
