I have been MIA for a long time and to be honest I was trying to hard to keep up with the selling on Artfire, Etsy, Bonanzle and keeping up with blogging, being a mom, wife, daughter, step-mom, sister and friend. It got way to over whelming and I felt as tho I had nothing to say. Who really wants to read something that isn't interesting?
So I took a long time off to get back on my feet and to figure out what was important to me. I spent most of the summer taking pictures, bringing my son down to the beach and we went up to my uncles dairy farm twice this year! I love it up there!! I was planning on going up again this weekend but I can't make it :( But I will get back up there soon. We did alot of things this summer as a family which was really nice. I had also gotten a part time job working from 4-8pm and worked alot of overtime. I was let go in Sept because I had gotten really sick and was out of work for almost a week and a half. The drs still don't know what it was but let me tell you...it wasn't fun!! I feel much better but to be honest I don't think my stomach is the same since then. Good news is the drs can't find anything and nothing is wrong internally so i guess I am good to go. I am currently looking for another job and it will have to be second shift due to my son being in afternoon kindergarten. Yes, we are probably one of the last towns around that don't have full day kindergarten. We had a great summer and I Hope that everyone out there did too!
So for right now I am going to end this with some pictures that I had taken over the summer. I hope you enjoy them and you can always see more on my flickr photo stream :)
This picture I think is of the Farm River up in Mass. Funny part is I live where the Farm river and Long Island sound meet. It is only a 3 minute walk for me and this picture is taken about 1.5hr ride away.
My oldest son...we called him the cow Whisperer. The cow he is with is Red and she followed him everywhere he went while we were walking in the pastures. The he got the honor of her giving him a kiss :)
These next pictures were taken at an airshow just outside of Springfield Mass. Took us forever to get into park but it was well worth the wait.
This is a picture of my Dad and my son Thomas (My son is named after my father). They are standing next to a replica of the jeep my dad spent almost a yr and a half in and sleeping under when he served in Vietnam. My father was very excited to see it and Thomas was very proud to hear all the stories my Dad had to tell that day.
