It's been a long time!

It has been forever since I have been on here.
I do not blame myself and my complete lack of motivation, of course.
I blame my new job, it has been a tough transition. More hours and more responsibility, but I think I have the hang of it now.
And of course I blame the children.
What has happened with the television has happened with the computer as well. In a household of 5, there is only 1 television. 
Since I'm content to read, I simply gave up the fight and let the rest have their Mythbusters, Star Wars and sporting events. 
So now the fight has been brought to the only laptop that we have. 
As soon as I turn the thing on, a small head will pop up in front of the screen and ask, "What are you doing? Can I use it when you're done? When will you be done?"
So I gave up. 
I'm currently saving for my own computer, each week in a honey jar. 
However, that is a poor excuse for not writing. I should be doing it every day in some way. 
 I finally downloaded a Blogger app on my phone, which the hellions can't claim from me. I need it for work. 
So in between work, managing bees who aren't doing what I want them to do, fighting squirrels in defense of my new tiny garden and keeping up with the kids, you may hear from me a bit more. 
In the meantime, I am on the Jersey Shore for our traditional start of the summer vacation.
 I'm really disappointed because the late spring, with all the plants and creatures running late, means that the fireflies, who are out in the millions at my in-laws at this time, have not yet made an appearance.
If you need me, I'll be standing in my in-laws backyard, silently willing a couple of million insects to wake up already and start having sex for my entertainment.
