Trying to find my groove plus 2 cute-a-licious boys

I've obviously been in a blogging funk. For a while we didn't have the internet, and now lately I just can't seem to find my blogging niche. Mostly I'm doing great. Considering the fact that I went from one baby and a husband around most of the time and only one toilet to clean to two babies and a husband who works all day and three toilets to clean, I think I'm doing swell. I mean let's get serious. The time I'm saving by having a dishwasher is more than enough to scrub a few toilies. p.s. I love my dishwasher more than most things in this world. But anyway, I'm still struggling a bit finding my groove (who am I, David Spade as a llama?) here in OR.

But you're sick of hearing about that. Boo hoo, Anne! You had to move to a place where your kids get to grow up by both sets of grandparents. That's so sad and terrible!

So here is a really cute movie of the boys and I promise to come up with more interesting things to write about soon.

I say keep complaining if it helps. Those transition times are always hard (have I had a little experience with that?) and my first year as a stay-at-homer was one of my hardest. You'll find your groove (that reminds me of a James Taylor song, but I can't remember which one?). Love you. Can't wait to see you -- will you have time to play a little with us the second week you're here? I don't know if the first week will be enough....
p.s. my word recognition is kougrs -- a little shout-out to BYU?

Wow, three toilets. That would probably just about throw me over the edge. Your boys are adorable. The transition from one child to two is definitely the hardest one so hang in there.

Well baby Rog is a chunk of love!!! I love his thighs! What cuties you have! I say you have every right to say life is kinda hard, because you have had 3 big transitions basically at once! Move, new babe, and Tay going to work all day! That's rough! I'm thinking about you if that makes you feel any better??

Hopefully we'll see you this summer!!!

Anne, maybe you can use your groove to inspire mine when I move to Washington to be a stay-at-home mom at approximately the same time I'm due to have baby boy #2. At least we're moving in the summer before it will start raining on top of all of that.

Also, as I was going through the Scholastic warehouse sale today I couldn't help but wish you were nearby to point out great books that I was probably passing up.

Best of luck with finding that groove! Your boys are super cute in the video. It made me excited for Benjamin to hug his brother and give him high fives.

sorry...

but when you figure out what to blog about, can you title it "How Anne Got Her Groove Back?" Remember how I had a big crush on my freshman English professor? He wrote a thesis about that book (stella not anne). Weird huh?

Anyway, I am in a blog funk too. Love those boys!

I thought cleaning 2 toilets was bad! 3 would be terrible! :)

I am glad to see you up and blogging again, only if it for a little while. Your babes are adorable and little Rog, he is a chunk! Hope all is well in OR and in the new house. Give your parents a "hello" from Tim and I.

I swore I would never clean more than 2 toilets and here we are with three. I did realize that I build up how long it takes to clean all three sound it feels like it's longer than it actually is. Now, I just pick up my bathroom cleaning caddy, yes I am a total nerd, and get to work. Of course, I don't let hubby think it's easier. Plus, there is only one boy in the house, that makes it easier. Complain all you want. Sometimes girls need to vent and hear that others are going through the same thing.

I saw your doppleganger at Costa Vida last night Anne! It was crazy! BUt this fake Anne was pregnant, and I knew you weren't pregnant anymore. I love that chubba bebe'!!

If you need an idea for what to write about, I'm all about a tour of your new abode!

I think the blog funk is contagious -- I've got a bad case.

I loved seeing this video of your boys. They're "good ones."

I've been thinking about you so much -- knowing this is a hard transition. Wish I could move me and my family closer to you and yours. Miss you!

Rog is BEAUTIFUL. And I didn't think a kid could get much more adorable than Blaine. You and Taylor are a great combo. Thinking of you.

Loved this post. Have been in a bit of blog boredom myself, just barely posted for the first time in weeks. I love having you here and hope I can help in any way. Let me take the boys for a morning so you a Rosie can have some mother-daughter time. I am up for it now, after cleaning the carpet floor (dog hair) for the final (hopefully) time today (yes, it is Sunday but I am obsessive-compulsive and had to even by a Lint roller)I hope to have some good mommy moments with my kiddos. Loved the video, Rog is a big boy!
