It seems I've been out of the blog-esphere for one whole month now. Wow! I didn't realize it was so long. Several friends and family members have e-mailed to ask about the blog. (I am amazed once again that folks out there still follow along with our crazy life.) It's not that things here in Chattanooga have been slow or uninteresting - quite the opposite. We have been very busy, and my phone holds the proof. It is filled with fun pictures of Noelle, Eric, church friends, the cats...and Noelle. One example-- Noelle was a "karate-girl" for Halloween. Wait until you see how much fun I had with her hair! When I get these and other 'Life of the Johnson's' photos uploaded to Flickr, I post the link here on the blog.

I don't have any great excuse or explanation for my lack of blogging. I was sick for 3+ weeks, which kept me away from my computer, but to be completely honest, I've just been bummed lately. It seems that moving to a new community, attending a larger church (and all that entails), and the whole 'new mommy thing' finally caught up with me. I have been discouraged and overwhelmed with my life. Making a big move is hard. Learning to fit in with a whole new group of people is hard. Facing new responsibilities is hard. Being a mom is hard.

Whew! Well now that I've got that off my chest...

To answer the common question-- yes, I do intend to continue blogging. Although I have had a rough few weeks, I do really enjoy writing for the blog, and I like being able to keep our loved ones far away up to speed. I can't tell you when I'll get caught up, but I will. So please check in from time to time. (Or just subscribe to our blog (upper right corner)) It is fun to know that you are out there reading. :)

My one request: please pray for God to help me navigate my way through the new life He has brought me to.

Of course I'll pray with you. I hope too, that we can work out a time sometime soon to get together and finally meet in person.

If parenting is anything, it is sacrifice and hard work.... if moving is anything, it is sacrifice and hard work.... if adjusting to the total newness of an enviroment is anything.... you guessed it. Your life is fraught with sacrifice and hard work!

Don't forget to take some time for you.

Hugs and Prayers,
Ernie & Nancy
