You might say I got a wild hair tonight and decided to stop by my blog - you know, just to see how the neighborhood has been holding up since I packed up and moved out in the middle of the night last year. My poor little blog - if it had been one of those electronic pets - what are they called? Tamagotchi? It would have died of digital neglect a looooong time ago.
And I was supposed to have "bounced back" - which is just too funny. More like an epic flop since my "return" only lasted four months. I feel like Lance Armstrong or Michael Jordan or even worse, Brett Farve saying they're done only to reappear again (and again in some of their cases) except I never said I was done. I just stopped showing up. Which isn't like me. When I start something I stick with it - no matter how bad it sucks. That's why I stayed in the Army Reserves for 8 years when I only really had to do 6 - I gave it my all and then some.
Now to be clear I'm not saying that blogging sucks. It's more like I think MY blogging sucks...... or something along those lines. Whatever it is, writing is difficult for me and I want to get better at it. And what better way then to blog? Just put everything out there for everyone to see?
And by everything I mean everything! Soooo much has happened since my last post "four score and seven years ago" that I can't even begin to list all the stuff I could talk about. There's been my kids' birthdays, our family adventures and of course mis-adventures, my DIY projects, and I can't forget our three new little girls -Chloe, Maggie and Alice. They lay some super tasty eggs! Oh and then there's my latest weight loss effort - starting P90X. I would do a fist pump if I could but it seriously hurts too much.
So once again I'm going to hitch up my britches and give it another whirl. Slow and steady wins the race, right? At least that Tony Horton says. See you soon!
