What's up, Doc?

I used to love Buggs Bunny and his "What's up, Doc?" I miss those days of Saturday morning cartoons. Lately, I've been so busy just living life, adjusting to work after a tonsillectomy and with a sinus infection, and just trying to manage everything. It gets to be a bit much I must admit. That's why lately, I'm taking a new stand. I'm doing what is most important to me.

So, I haven't really blogged much and that's because I just don't know about the future of this blog and I'm just living life. I'm not sure about it and I'm not sure how I'll fit in things that are blogworthy. Maybe it's because I've been feeling overwhelmed by a lot and dealing with surgery and a sickness for the past 5 weeks or that people think I'm an expert on things I'm just trying out.  Who knows.

Anyway, here's what I've been up to while I've been away (i.e. not really blogging about much and less than 3 times a week).

-One day after work, I took lil man to the zoo then to the park on the way home. It's important to know that the zoo is small and we were there for 30-45 minutes because it closed on us. It's also key to know the park is 1/4 mile from my house. We were there for 25 minutes. I'm no super mom- just a mom enjoying a 50 degree sunshiny day with my kiddo.

-Sled riding on one of the days when we had snow... It lasted all of 2 days before we hit 45 and 50 degrees... No complaining here.

-Baking and cooking with lil man. It's our favorite time together- making stuff in the kitchen. He's a great helper and helps with unloading the dishwasher every night. He gets upset if I've mixed ingredients while he's chosen to play (despite the fact that I asked if he wanted to help and he said no he wanted to play). This is by far my favorite time with him. I love cooking with him in the kitchen (okay, when he's not climbing up the cabinets or emptying them.... ALL over the downstairs).
He made the pancakes you see on the griddle.

making brownies

Adding water

adding oil or maybe that's eggs.

Stir Stir

All done!

-Working. Yep. It's been a busy few weeks being back after a month off (winter break and 2 weeks for tonsillectomy).

-Reading when I can.

Really, I'm not up to much that I would normally blog about - crafts and trying to get organized. I'm just being human and enjoying the little things in life. Isn't that what it's all about?

Oh, don't ask about house cleaning. That's not on the top of my list right now! After a month with my lil one, I'm focused on him and spending time with him when I get home from work. Dishes get done and that's about it!


  1. That is awesome time spent with E! It is great that he loves to be in the kitchen and helping out. He will make some women happy one day with his cooking skills! I HATE cooking. I know what you mean about the house. I have been sick for over a year and my house has really paid for it. I am thinking of getting someone to come in and doing a good cleaning for me. Maybe that will help me feel better too:) lol. Don't shut your blog down. 1 - 3 times a week or whenever you get around to it, is fine with me. Have a great day!

  2. Michelle,
    I don't think I'll shut the blog down. It's a creative outlet for me. I'm just not sure what all it will be about. I don't consider myself a specialist in anything, but like to share what I'm learning as I live life. I'm thinking there will be more random thoughts/blabbering, some sharing of life with a toddler, and still some creative/organizing stuff. I may not frequent the posts as much, but I've written a month's worth of Tasty Tuesday's already. :) I really like using the blog as a way to keep track of what I've tried to make and like as well as additions. Friends I know who read this enjoy it too. We end up sharing all kinds of stuff after things I post. It's good. So, the blog will be around... just not sure about the contents. I'll address more in an upcoming post.
