I'd rather be mingling 5/16

Monday Mingle time again!

Now don't faint - I know it's crazy - I'm posting this on Sunday.  I'm not last-minute for once.
No, you haven't stepped into an alternate universe.  Don't fear, I'm sure I'll be late again next week.  (And huge thanks to you those who still commented even though it was practically Tuesday when I posted. Smooches!)

Now, just a warning that I have my helpers with me again this week.  (Shh, don't tell them, but I was secretly hoping to do it alone this time around.  And I was hoping to do it earlier in the day, outside, when it was sunny and I was more alone.)  Damn, turns out I was kind of last-minute anyway.  Gah!

Ahh well, they add spunk when I might have put you to sleep.  ;)

And here is the picture I was talking about - beware the ugly cry:

I was an utter mess.  So was Riley.  We just wanted our little buddy back!  I might get a little sniffly this time around too.  But, I think I'll bounce back much easier this time.  Even quicker if I can find a couple of moms to have a few margarita's with!  

Till next week, minglers...


  1. Your kids are SO CUTE! Also I think I cried like that during my move. =)

  2. You three are a blast. I know you wanted alone time (LOL - I don't blame you), but they really are sweet girls. Especially their thoughts about Grandpa and he's always in your heart. So sweet.

    I know the feeling - I was with my mom when she died, and it is so hard to witness. I completely broke down, as I'm sure you did.

    Maybe one week you will get your alone time to mingle. If not, I don't mind seeing the girls : )

    Thanks so much for submitting questions - these were good ones!

  3. Oh and I am VERY proud of you for posting your mingle so early : )

  4. Your kids are cute!

  7. Your kids are so cute and I really enjoyed watching your mingle. This is my first week at the mingle and blogging so am just getting to grips with the whole thing.

    It was so sweet when your little girl sadi your granpa would be in your heart. Bless.
    As for getting them on the bus, This year my youngest will go to Primary1 (Grade 1) and I will be so sad, despite the fact I am the kindergarten teacher in the next room! Still doesn't make it easier!

  15. Oh what sweet and beautiful girls. A boot while you walked? Ugh.
