MY Life Monday returns - for good this time!

I'm sorry I haven't posted in a few days - not that your world revolved around my blog and its updates or anything (you mean it doesn't? I'm so hurt!). But I've been swamped with the end of one semester and the start of another. Pesky student think their papers need to be graded and that they should know those grades (really I just roll my 9 sided dice and that determines it). And my college class? Holy intense reading. I'm a fast reader and it took my an hour to make it through 15 pages of notes last night. I've got more tonight. But I have a lot on my mind and a lot of future blogs planned. Look forward to new posts later this week.

And now for some totally random things from this weekend.

We cleaned our basement this weekend. We cleared out so much crap! What a great feeling. Now there is actually room down there. And maybe once it warms up, Camden and I can take some fun toys down there to play (it's unfinished right now, so rather cold with exposed cement walls).

Speaking of cold, our hot water pipe froze twice in the past four days. But only the hot water on the upstairs floor, which also happens to be the only full bath. So yesterday found me carrying buckets of hot water from the kitchen upstairs to the tub so I could destink. I got a work out and a bath all in one! Finally the pipe unfroze last yesterday afternoon.

Camden is sick - poor kiddo. I got a call at 11 yesterday saying he was running a fever. I had to leave work and go home with him. Luckily it was an inservice day, so I didn't miss much. We spent the day curled up watching movies together. For Cam to sit still to watch anything over half an hour long is unusual, so that tells you how sick he is.

And My Life Monday is returning! After reading all your comments and a few emails, I am bringing it back. This coming Monday will be the first new one. The topic is: Where I live and how I got there. You don't have to actually share the name of your city because this is the internet and all (I'm not sharing mine because I don't want you stalking me - yes you, the crazy thinking about it right now). Is there an interesting story as to why you live where you do? What do you like or dislike about it? Would you move? Share with us and then come post your link here. I will be up and running that morning. If you don't know what MLM is or if you need the picture, check this out. Please join us!

Yay for a decluttered basement and the return of MLM!
I'm sorry to hear that Camden is sick. I hope he's feeling better soon.
I'm glad your pipe is not frozen anymore. I bet that was a pain to deal with!

Ha. I don't have to stalk you to randomly find you and share my villainous plans.

Hooray for the return of My Life Monday!

I hope that C is better by now! Poor baby. Frozen pipes are AWFUL and I can't wait to have my OWN basement to clear out (LOL!) someday... I can't wait to participate in my first MLM!

Did you manage to get the Therfore, What to work?

Everywhere I go in blogland, people are socked in by cold and snow! It makes me so grateful that I ended up in LA! (More on that on Monday...)

Our pipes froze too, my kid was sick too and yes, I will join back onto MLM! I look forward to reading your story! It will be good to hear why some of us ARE in Utah...

Poor Cam. Sasha was sick a couple weeks ago and has relapsed. Hate it when they're under the weather!

Looking forward to more MLM!
