I Know It Has Been awhile. . .

I know it has been a while since you have heard from me. . .no reason anything more exciting than life has gotten in the way. . .

I have also found with my 40th birthday approaching, I am getting old and forgetful! Just as soon as I say, "OMIGOSH, I have to blog about this", by the time I sit down at the computer to blog, I can't remember what in the world was so funny, sad, clever, touching, etc.

I also had discovered that my best blogging seemed to come after everyone was asleep in the house - and when you are approaching 40, staying up till all hours catches up with you - and it did me!

I am also in the process of creating a few more websites - just in time for the holiday season. I won't go into any specifics, but they will be places to find wonderful Hannah Montana, High School Musical (everyday Allie wants to know how many more "wake-ups" till the new one comes out - just in case you aren't living and breathing HSM, October 24th is the big day!) and princess "stuff" for great prices!! Just in time for the holidays!

In the mean time, I have been featured on my blogging friend Angela's fabulously creative Month of Stuff Blog - check out her email interview with me and the rest of her blog - its really neat!

Finally, if you are female and in the baby boomer age bracket and looking to make some new female friends - check out this new group. . .even though I am going to be 40 soon, I'm not a baby boomer, but Allie's godmother is the woman behind this group! She started it locally in April and has begun to take it National. . .she just launched her website and already has over 100 members on her website! While it might not fit the needs of most of my readers, it might be interesting to some and perhaps you know of someone you can pass it on to who might be interested!

I will leave you with one last thought. . .on Sundays, Allie goes to our synagogue for religious school. While she goes to a public elementary school, she has always been around synagogues - she went to preschool at our temple and I have taught at our temple ever since Allie has been alive - so she knows for the most part what its about. This is what occurred last Sunday after Sunday School:

Mommy Meryl: Allie, how was Sunday School?

Allie: I didn't like it today AT ALL.

Mommy Meryl: You never say that - what happened? You love being with your friends.

Allie: We didn't get a recess today because the teacher said we were too busy and had too much to do and so I didn't get to play with my friends. And we weren't busy doing anything. It was boring. Recess is the best part of Sunday School.

Mommy Meryl: You must have done something if the teacher said you were too busy to go out and play. What did you learn about?

Allie: Nothing. All we did was chit chat about God all day. We did nothing. Maybe the teacher wants to have a website called chitchatforgoddotcom because that is what she likes to chat about and you have a website chitchatformommiesdotcom because you always like to talk about me. . .

Ha! I do the same thing. I think of things I have to say all day and can't remember one thing when I sit down to work on things.

Very funny!

HAHAHAHHA. What a smart little kid! That is so funny.

I also was featured on Angela's site recently. Isn't that such a neat idea she came up with?
