Not making time

Apologies for a really pathetic blog effort lately. I’ve been terribly busy and excruciatingly tired at night. My friend, when I shared my¬†schedule, said to me, “remind me to introduce you to the word NO and her badass friend NOFUCKINGWAY.”¬† Yeah, I probably need those women around right now.

I hope I have a bit of time to blog about upcoming departure to Ethiopia and side trip to see Twinkletoes in Cape Town, South Africa. I leave on Thursday.


Happiness is….

Blueberry and Konjit – – a love fest. If you know my boy, you know he takes his time to warm and love. And when he does? Full.On! He loves Konjit. We all do. I eat up her stories about Ethiopia. I also eat up anything she cooks. We prepped injera batter today. We’ll make injera Sunday. The other day Songbird took Konjit out around the park on a bike – she wants to learn to ride a bike with comfort and ease. A week before Mr. SillyPants took her out for her first ever game of tennis. Vocabulary cards in Amharic line the kitchen counter. It’s like that….happiness is Konjit in our lives.
