Ten Reasons Why I Have Neglected This Blog

1. Vacation Bible School kept me busy.  I also had two extra kids all week.  We taught about the Armor of God.  It was a success.  The kids had a blast, and I must admit that I enjoyed it as well. 

2. We had a yard sale last week.  YES, during the HOTTEST part of the summer thus far.  It was VERY hot, but we made over $700 so it was a success!! I could NOT have done it without the help from my mother-in-law who spent many hours in the hot selling our "stuff".

3. Rhea Lana's was last week.  Of course that in itself didn't take my time, but I spent 2.5 hours shopping and got some GREAT deals.  I also spent several weeks gathering, sorting, and tagging my own merchandise to sell.  I ended up with a $447.03 profit so it was also well worth it...and for the record, I made more than I spent there so I still came out ahead!

4. It's HOT!  I know that's not much of an excuse, but dang it...why is it so hot?!

5. Today is Tyler's birthday.  He is 6.  We had his birthday party over the weekend, I have LOTS of pictures to sort through, but just can't find the time (or motivation!).  I did post (and tag) them on facebook for those of you who are my FB friends.

6. School starts on Monday!!! {sarcastic font} I am not the least bit excited!! {/sarcastic font} We have managed to gather up our entire back to school supply list, but we still need to shop for clothes, shoes, etc.  No, I did NOT fight the tax free weekend crowd.  I know the title of this blog says I am CrAzY, but come on...give me a little credit.  Is it really worth saving 8%???

7. I have been in the studio recording a CD.  I know that sounds so professional doesn't it?!  I am in a Gospel group called Southern Grace and we are cutting our first CD.  We will be putting the finishing touches (hopefully) on it tonight.  I am super excited about it.

8. I seriously think that this has been one of the busiest summers on record for The Black family.  We are so blessed, but sometimes I miss those weekends where we laid around all weekend and did nothing!

9. Up until last week we were spending an hour or so a day in the swimming pool.  It's too hot to do anything else.  My pool has been seriously neglected and now looks like Shrek is lurking in the bottom.

10. Dental Appointments last week for the two oldest kids resulted in NO CAVITIES!!!  

...I am sorry, I will try to do better.   I have lots to post about:  Vacation Bible School, The Circus, Tyler's Birthday, and lots more...stay tuned.

WAY TO GO on the sales! That's awesome. It seems like it's been a great summer, which is reason enough to neglect blogging. :)
