Because I took my family to a mini cruise to Kiel (Germany) on the first days of Easter Break last week.
In the middle of the sea back home, we had the phone call you don't want while you're on vacation. My FIL, who lives with us, had been in a car accident and was in hospital.
He's one tough coockie, my FIL. He broke some ribs, needed a neck surgery to avoid paralyzes, but on Saturday he was up on his feet again and on Monday he came home.
He still needs a lot of help, though. I leave home early for work, but pops in to him before I go to see if he needs anything.
Mix this happening with crazy days at work, two kids who needs help with home work, a husband who needs to take a lot of the hours in the shop himself, a husband who probably has been worried sick about his father that he snores so bad at night that I needed to move to the coach in the living room (yeah for three hours sleep at night a few days in a row). Did anyone mention every chores like laundry, cooking, grocery shopping etc?
But I'm hanging in, and today hubby came home early, picked the kids up after schools and made me dinner. It felt like a day off!

So this is why I haven't blogged.
But things normalize and I feel the energy is coming back.
Give me two more easy days, and I will be like a Duracell Bunny!
So to celebrate my new energy, I have a little something for you!
