So it's been some time since all of you have gotten your daily recommended dose of the Sherwood Family Doings. I'd like to pretend that our life has been crazy busy with fabulously interesting and blog-worthy activities, but it really hasn't that much. We've all gotten sick. And then we got sick again. Then we had friends come and visit from Moscow. And they all got sick (I'm sensing a theme here). And in the end I just got lazy.
I toyed with the idea of just quitting altogether; blogging seems to take more and more time these days and on some Sunday evenings the last thing I want to do is sit down and write for a few hours. I much prefer to be a consumer of writing instead of producing it. I consider quitting every year or so, but in the end I can never quite go through with it. I'm very much a creature of habit - I'm on my fifteenth year of running even though I hate every minute of it - and I just can't quit now. We've had so many adventures over the last eight years and it would be a shame to break a streak that long.
So for now the stories will keep on coming (you're welcome, Mom). I can't promise anything interesting or exciting. But I can promise stories.
