Miscellany Monday

+ This always happens.  I get in a blogging rut and it hurts.  I miss the blog world!  I miss connecting with people.  I think I have written about 20 drafts since my last blog post and each one has never been finished.  Can I blame my daughter?  Is that selfish of me?

+ It is spring break!  I have been waiting for this since I first started in January.  This job is keeping me crazy busy, and I only work part time!  Within the next month I have to plan an entire K-8 music concert and not pull my hair out.  I'm just hoping that Ellie doesn't decide to start teething during that time.

+ Speaking of Ellie, she doesn't sleep through the night yet.  I don't think I've had more than 4-5 hours straight of sleep since I was about 3-4 months pregnant.  That's more than a year ago.  Yikes...

+ My best friend is getting married this summer.  In Japan.  We had originally decided that we just couldn't afford it with trying to massively save up/pay off our debts, but we had some things come up that have allowed me to go!  I'm BEYOND excited to go to Japan.  Tokyo, of all places!  The only downside?  I have to go alone.  A 16+ hour plane ride... to a huge foreign city... alone.  Is it okay if I'm incredibly nervous?

+ While in Japan, Ellie is going to stay home with Nick.  I wanted to bring her along, but I think with the crazy time change and me being on my own, it's probably not a good idea.  Plus, it'll be great daddy-daughter bonding time!  And really great mommy-alone time.

+ Nick is becoming quite the brewer and bread-maker around here.  He started his own sourdough starter, has made many loaves of bread, and we even made a yummy pizza crust with it.

Ellie doesn't mind it all either.  Even the beer.
