MIA for all the right reasons

I’ve been MIA a bit and I do apologise. I do have some excuses though.

The two of us…

…have been so busy with these two…

…and these two…

…as well as this guy…

…that I’ve been out of the blog loop for some time.

Add to that the 7 dogs, 4 cats and zillions of fish and you can see why things have been a little crazy.

I also took ownership of this…

…and all this is part of the upcoming plan to get all the above into one happy family. Yep, things are moving here by me.

Between it all running is still going well and I’m training quite hard for some upcoming races. In general I can really say life is good.

Hope life is good there by you as well!

Wait a second. How many dogs? 7? Like in seven? :) Wow! That is soo cool!
Don't worry about not blogging - that comes from someone who has not been a very good blogger either.
Glad to hear your running is going well.
You have a very good looking family, Johann. What a blessing this is.

I was just thinking of you this morning and wondering if all was well - so glad to hear that indeed, life is good! I totally agree with you - that is the best reason of all to be off the blogworld radar. Hope things continue to go well!

Definitely good reasons. If you weren't LIVING your life, you wouldn't have anything to tell us, anyway. :)

Liz said...

You have been busy! But it makes me wonder how you normally fit in so much running and racing?!

Raina said...

All for the right reasons :) So glad to see your life going in this happy direction!

You can be absent from time to time, just know that you were missed.

You HAVE been busy. The dogs alone would keep me busy - but all the rest of that ...
That boy of yours makes me smile every time I see his photo. His smile is so gorgeous and those cheeks were just made for pinching.

I agree with the others... The blog takes a back seat. I know it's happened to me (I got 3 kids all under 8) In the mean time, welcome back.
