Prodigal Blogger

Hi, I’m Jules.
I used to be a blogger.
It has been 4 months since my last posting.
I am sorry.

What, pray tell, are my excuses? Well, here they are:

·        Summer happened.  As soon as the weather was beautiful, my children have a tendency to stay up later, and I have the tendency to be tired after they finally are abed….   We had a FANTASTIC time from swimming at our beach, visiting friends, and of course golf.

·        I got a 2nd degree burn.  Yes, a few days before my birthday in June, I spilled 425 degree oil on my arm.  It melted my flesh and I had to bandage it for almost 2 weeks which limited my typing ability, sleeping patterns, and general abilities in life….  Be warned, the picture is gross….

·        I had a fantastic surprise birthday party!! My daughter, Grace, gathered together a team of friends to throw me a fantastic surprise party! She was thrilled that she pulled it off and I got the most amazing cake and food!!

·        I got ENGAGED!!! I never thought I would re-marry, but God had a different plan for me, and I have never been happier. I will be marrying this December, so wedding plans, and what not :)

·        Fourth of July fun—We always hit up parades, fireworks, and BBQ on the Fourth. Yes, it is one day, and it’s not much of an excuse for not typing, but the pictures are cute :)

·        Traveling to DELAWARE!  This year we did our family reunion at Bethany Beach in Delaware.  It was an amazing time with hot weather, fun games, and great family times.

  •  We also celebrated the Olympics with some themed-food for the opening ceremonies:

    Back to reality. Then school started. I kept saying, “Oh, I’ll post soon.” Or, “I’ll post after the first day of school, etc.”  

·        And finally, I want to admit that I started SEVERAL blog posts, but never finished them, here are their titles:
o   How to Keep Your Kid From Being a Jerk- an OT perspective
o   Updates on My Life- I originally intended this as my Winter Wedding planning blog
o   Hosting a Game Night (I do one once a week)

o   Summer Goals- Now I am just too embarrassed to put that I didn’t meet ANY of the schooling goals I had with the kids….

 Sorry for the delay in posting- I hope we still have readers :) Let me know any topics that you would like to read about!!!


  1. Yay! I love that you're back!

    1. Me too!!! I'll try harder now... :)
