Worst Blogger Ever

Wow, it's been over a week since I blogged or commented. I totally suck. I wish I had a good excuse, but I don't. Can't even claim to have been busy house-hunting or moving or something because I still haven't received the "official" job offer.

I called last week to check on the status of my application and the hiring manager said that she was pushing it through as fast as she could but still needed some signatures. *sigh* More waiting.

Waiting sucks.

But, it means that I have had plenty of time on my hands to spend with Muffin. I decided to take advantage of the "Hero Salute" program offered by Busch Gardens to treat Muffin to her first amusement park adventure. She LOVED it! She even rode on the Big Bad Wolf with me! Of course, afterwards she decided that was enough of the "big girl roller coasters."

In fact, after the ride she told me that "The Big Bad Wolf was a little too startling. I was very startled." And that was that. We rode just about everything else though and had a blast. We had so much fun that I went ahead and bought us tickets to Kings Dominion!

Another great day - absolutely perfect. I would certainly put these two days in my List Of Best Days Ever. She's starting school tomorrow and to be honest, it will be nice to have a routine again. Still, I'm happy to have had these few months to spend with my precious girl. I'll always remember my Summer of Muffin.

I'm hoping to hear back about the job soon and once I do, things will get pretty busy around these parts. I will try to stay motivated and keep up with this blog and yours but it may be somewhat sporadic. I know - I'm lame! I'll do some major catching up when everything is settled - promise!

ain't nuthin wrong with an occasional blog-cation. By the way, my little scamp has become a big muffin fan lately, but she calls them "nuffins". We've already had a couple of "moments" when we asked what she wanted to eat and she said "nuffin" and we simply kept driving, only to hear a few seconds later, but much louder, "I WANT NUFFINS!"

I don't think you're at all lame - I think you've got a lot on your plate.

Good luck for Muffin's first day and I'll look forward to hearing from you when you've got 5 minutes to call your own!

"I was very startled"? That is hilarious!

So glad you've enjoyed your summer! You certainly did a lot of fun stuff with Muffin. I'm sure you made a ton of memories that she'll treasure! Good for you, Mama!

As Tom Petty says, "The Waiting is the hardest part..." SO TRUE!! I hope you don't have to wait too much longer, but it is nice that you had this time with your daughter.

Summer of Muffin - sounds like the name of a book.

Wow, what a mature little girl!!! Her vocabulary and the roller coastin' thing.
You're a great mama.

Startled by the roller coaster, huh? How friggin' adorable is that? I love it when my kids use an unexpected word in the proper context LOL

Good luck on the job!
