Hello fellow bloggers....
Forgive me for not updating Keep It Together for a while. I was kind of preoccupied, which I am sure most of you will understand. I was in the middle of re-reading Harry Potter books 1-5 (because my retention for novels is just absolutely horrible) and trying to watch the movies at the same time. But I found that I had no attention span for the movie after reading the book. Although I like the movies, the books just bring it to life in my mind so much better than TV can.
And then I got to read Book Six (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince) for the first time. I could not put it down. It instantly became my favorite...well, until I picked up Seven, of course.
Now I wish I had read all of them "on time" and could have participated in all of the chatty threads on APU. Oh well! Never too late to jump on the bandwagon!
So, tears aside (and I bawled like a baby several times during the last book), I can now go back to cooking, cleaning, blogging, and spending time with my kids.
Really, I haven't been that bad of a mom. I've managed to put the book down several times to attend to the children's needs or to take them somewhere. Here are some pictures from the last week or so:
