yes, i will try harder to start writing again. i have little energy, but i don't want to disappoint. i have trouble finding things to write about day to day life, because i think it's pretty boring. just the same old thing day after day. kids are doing well, except when hiro hits poor sasha. she does bother him sometimes, but at this point it's not on purpose. it's hard for him, too, and he gets lots of time outs. *sigh* the rain came back last night. i found myself going upstairs at 2 am to close the windows. it's still raining pretty hard. bring on rainy season!
