...because we all have our motley moments!

Tuesday, July 13, 2010


Summer is obviously in full swing with all sorts of special memory-making moments for the Motley Moms. Karly's kiss with a curb and Liz's foray into boxing (in more ways than one) just go to prove how dangerous it is to be a mom. Especially a really motley one who has police chasing her all over town or pictures of her injuries going viral on facebook. It's the stuff summer is made of...ahhhh, memories.

While summer happenings have been heating up, our motley writing has definitely taken a "chill pill" as we said in middle school. I don't feel like such a deadbeat anymore, now that I'm in good company! But I do miss clicking over to Motley Moms for my daily peek into the lives of my mom friends. It's my lifeline to the outside world when I'm up here in the middle of the Adirondack mountains with no cell service all summer...the one-liner quips on Facebook just don't do it for me!

It is nice to take a break from it all, though, every now and then. I'm hoping our little summer break will result in lots of great posts when we've all returned to our regularly scheduled programs. For now, maybe I should find the graphic of the color blocks with the accompanying tone to alert the public that we have no Motley programming during the summer break. That would be awesome.

Have fun with your families, but ya'll come back now, y'hear?

I'm glad you posted. A few minutes before you posted, I saw the changes to the site and was going to give you a hard time about taking the time to change the layout, but not writing a post. :) Oh, and it wasn't boxing. It was circuit training. And my ankle still hurts! :(

Yes, but weren't you trying to jump up onto a box? That's what I heard through the motley grapevine. And aren't you now discovering the joys of packing your entire family's lives into boxes for the big move across town?

When I signed in to write a post, I was greeted with the invitation to try the new and improved "design" function. So I played with it very briefly. Then I proceeded to write my spur-o-the-moment post about not posting. I'm expert on that subject now!

Can't wait to see your new house! Good luck with the move and be careful around boxes.
