I know, I know. You're all thinking....whoa...where has our favorite blogger gone? We have missed her terribly and have waited by baited breath for her return.

Well, here I am!!!!!!!!!!!! Back with bells and whistles on. Well, maybe not bells and whistles but I'm back! And so glad to be home. As much as I loved being with all my family and friends, there's something to be said for being in your own house, own bed and own space. And then there's that thing about terribly missing that guy I'm married to since I haven't seen him in 8 weeks.

It's cold here, definitely cold, but I've heard it's warming up. We can only hope. Do they do Groundhog's Day here? I don't think so. But if they did, I'm thinking that Punxsutawney Phil would have said it would be six more weeks of winter, because it was snowing the day we got off the March. Did you guys know I missed one of the worst winters they've had here since 1976. It snowed more this year than it has any other year since then. You know I did that on purpose, right? I just wish I would have brought the California sun with me.

I can't believe it's been over a month since I blogged. Am I allowed to say why? I think I read on someone else's blog a silly list of things you're not supposed to do while blogging, and one was not to talk about why you haven't blogged in awhile. Pishposh. I love to hear about people's busy lives and what they've been doing...and it makes me feel good that someone else's life can get crazy at times. :)

You all knew I was in the States with the kids for three months, right? Well, yes, it did get busy sometimes, but for the most part I was playing! It was a blast...celebrating all the holidays, helping with two siblings' weddings, traveling to all my old stomping grounds and visiting a ton of friends and family.

One of the reasons I didn't blog was because I thought I had lost my memory card with all my pictures on it. My camera was sort of going on the fritz, so I was worried that for some reason all the pictures would get deleted. So I took out the memory card and stupidly put it in my pocket at the hotel last week. Then I took it out and put it on the hotel desk and kept looking at it thinking, "You know I really should put that in a safe place or it's going to get lost." At that point, I really thought I did put it in a safe place.

Well, I forgot the whole thing until the other day when I went to look for it to show Brian pictures. Hmmm, couldn't find it. Kept thinking it would turn up every time I went through a suitcase or backpack or purse. No good. So, instead of having a heart attack, I checked out and forgot about it. Until just this moment. As I was typing the story...I thought, "Check the computer backpack again." So I dug around in every pocket. I found lots of other things, including a smashed M&M and a crackled Good & Plenty (don't ask), but no luck. Until I remembered a secret compartment that we put all the important disks and memory cards.. ta da!!!! There's what it was! I HAD put it in a safe place. See! I guess it IS good to talk about why you haven't blogged in awhile.

I had better have found it soon, cuz I would have lost all faith in myself, what with my notebook going missing and my ipod and...well let's just stop there cuz I'm embarrassed to say all the things I've lost.

So, since there's nothing exciting going on right now, I'll just start playing catch up. I don't have any pictures for this post so I'll just leave you with two that sum up what we've been doing the last week.

Finally! I mean what was I supposed to do in the evening? I even started to cheat on you...

Don't worry, my life isn't that sad.

Today I had the impression that the snow is melting. Thumbs pressed (German for fingers crossed)!

Those sleeping pictures are pricless. I'm so glad you are back safe, and sound (what does that even mean? haha)... Anyway, I can't imagine trying to deal with jet lag. Ugh.
