It is a truth universally acknowledged that a rainy day becomes much cheerier when one is in possession of a turquoise umbrella.



I pretty much envy people who are able to juggle schoolwork and maintain a blog.

Me? I cain't.

I'm about eight weeks into this semester and I honestly believed I could be a creative bloggity blogger while still keeping up with my classes. Ha.

Wait. Hold up. I'm suspecting I don't have your whole undivided attention. I think you're still trying to figure out if the word 'cain't' was intentional or if that rebel 'i' tippy-toed in there by accident. Let me assure you, it was deliberately inserted to emphasize my poor multitasking abilities. Let's further stress this fact:

I cain't, cain't, cain't.

There. I feel better. :) In all honesty, school will just about squeeze any creative juices you might have had right out of you. So my posts for the next, ah, two months will probably be more sporadic than they already have been. I still want to share about our trip to Charleston, our family reunion in the mountains, and how much our dear little Muffle Puffles AJ Tiger John Wayne is growing.

But as of right now, I have a math test in the morning, so...goodnight, friends.

(An old photo I found of me and Elisabeth. We really haven't changed much since...we're both still short and I still don't enjoy being photographed.We finally did outgrow those footie pajamas though.)

Well, I do love to hear from my sweet, fun Erin whenever I can! But of course I understand life is busy. Still- I'll take what I can get.
And why ditch the footy pj's? ^-^

Little Erin should have said, "I cain't."

Just for continuity's sake. ;o)

I've missed you! But yes, I understand the squeeze of school. I really think those who blog during the school year are those who stay up abnormally late or those who shirk their main duties. *whistles nonchalantly*
