"make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you,
so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody."

comeback kid

i took a completely unintended hiatus from blogging.
whoops.

soon after my last post,
jason's grandpa passed away,

we had a gas leak on our property,

took a few small roadtrips for the farm,

(they wore newborn diapers on the way home. so cute.)

did lots of home improvement projects,

then jason and i spent a "romantic"
valentine's day taking turns 
throwing up in the bathroom.

we had multiple colds,

  but fresh air and music helped lift our spirits.

the following weekend,
we had a bout with head lice--a downside of public school.
worst thing ever.

 
we've done lots of living and sharing life,

and max's crib was becoming a hazard,
so he is cage free now and happy.

 most recently, a week ago today actually,
my husband's foot was
run over by a 1,000+ lb
electric jack at work.
as in, he looked down after it happened
and the toe of his shoe was touching his shin.
yeah...
but we serve a mighty God,
a God who heals and miraculously
there were no breaks.
he goes back to the dr thursday
and will have an mri to check 
for ligament and tendon damage.
for now, he is on crutches
and i have taken on a lot of 
the farm care, which is fine.
it was tough at first.
it was...
but we're finding a new normal
to last for the next few weeks,
and we are managing well.

there were plenty of times 
when i had things on my heart to share,
but now i don't remember what they were.
i should have written them down...

so although this post is completely random
and most of you have probably forgotten about my blog,
i am hoping that this helps me get back into the swing of things...
because there are always new adventures, always things on my mind...
and i am finding more and more that my memory is failing me. =)

here's to my comeback.
