too blue to blog

So I've not been up to blogging lately. I find that when I'm feeling down, it's hard to work up any motivation to share thoughts or connect with others (though a couple of friends have been kind enough to listing to me rant and cry). Lately I've just been feeling overwhelmed (again). Though it hasn't been the kids that have been overwhelming me, which I count as a sign of good progress in that area!

Noodle & Spud have spent much free time this week playing with the Legos that David brought back from his parents' house. Oh what fun they have! Noodle plays Legos a lot like I did when I was a kid - building houses, making little Lego critters (I made birds as we didn't have any lego animals, she is lucky enough to have two Lego horses and a shark!) and acting out scenarios with the various Lego people. Luckily I snagged the "girl hair" we had at my house way back when, as otherwise we only have helmets and hats, and Noodle doesn't like pretending that the helmet-wearers COULD be girls whose hair you just can't see. One of these days we'll do an order from the Lego store and get some more girl hair...then it will be less of a "Smurfette" situation. Anyways, it's pretty fun to watch them play, especially when they play nicely, which they have been doing most of the week!

We went to the Walter Wick exhibit at the BYU Art Museum yesterday afternoon. He's the "I Spy" guy. Pretty fun stuff. If you're local, I highly recommend it. Even Spud enjoyed it. It runs through sometime in August.

I think I'm turning the corner in my melancholy, though, so in case you are dying to see more random videos, lolcats, or pictures of my kids, you might soon be in luck!

Hope you come out of the blues soon. That exhibit looks like fun! My kids would love it.

No fun. The blues suck. I'm sorry you're not feeling as happy as you'd like. I wish we were talking more. I miss you! Being off work I thought I'd have all this free time--and the energy to go with it. But I was a little ambitious, I think. But I'm here for you any time. I always have the energy and time (and desire) for that.

We, too, enjoyed the exhibit. They've had some good ones lately.

I don't know if I told you that I had a really hard time adjusting from two kids to three. I felt very overwhelmed!!! Just know you are not alone and that I bet you and I are not the only ones out there who felt a little overwhelmed at times :O)
