Hello Old(ish) Friend

It's great to see you all. And it's been waaaaay too long. No, I haven't been sick, no one in my fam is dying (that we know of! Please hold while I go knock on wood!), we didn't take a luxurious vacation to a tropical island (which we all know I TOTALLY deserve...hehe), or even a short trip cross-country. Lightning didn't strike our cable lines, and I've been paying the bill (I swear!). I've just been sorta busy living life.

...and cleaning up after monkeys, and feeding them, and changing them, and refereeing their battles over toys, and applying sunscreen. :o)

I'm new to this blogging thang. I started 3/14/08 and have *sigh* only published 54 posts. I've met and kept in *comment* contact with some phenomenally great mothers. Or, at least, I did...before I went on leave. Heh. Many of you have popped in to check on me the past couple of months, and I was grateful to see there was someone thinking of me. I was feeling kind of lost, I guess...for lack of a better word. I just didn't want to be THAT blogging mom who griped about not feeling appreciated or like she wasn't doing enough. Ugh. Even now, I feel sorry for you having to read that last line. I'm okay. Sincerely great, actually. I have come to peace with my role as Mom of Many and am coming back to blogging with a renewed outlook and attitude.

I cannot wait to catch up and share some adventures with you all!! Thanks for having me back.

I am so glad you are coming back to bloggy land! I truly have missed your wit!! I always enjoyed reading your posts b/c your family is what my family will most likely be (just about all boys) whenever we create some more. :) I was so glad to see your comments every now and again--that kinda let me know you were Ok and around. Everyone needs a break and I am POSITIVE yours was well deserved. YAY!! Kate's back!! :)

I totally get it! I am in the whirlwind this week too. I'm glad you're back. I didn't see any option to e-mail you on your page so had to use this, sorry! Diet alone for now, but I have to cont to eat this way forever or I will slowly pile it back on. Hi, my name is mandy, and I'm a chocoholic (and cookie monster). All true. It took effort to commit but after that it's no big deal once you get used to making the food choices. I am never hungry.

My page? I am not sure, I haven't heard of anyone else, so yes it's just you. Sorry to have had to be the one to break it to you. Actually mine freezes with Trenches of Mommyhood's site every time..but I love her so I keep going back!

Good to see you back! Great pics of babieeesss and chocolate!

You are so funny & of course I'm SO glad you're back!

And hey, gripe away sista! Odds are, we've all been there, or close. We'd understand, or feel or pain. Theres nothing like wiping noses (& bums) all day and cleaning up what should be classified as a class 5 tornado aftermath for the 75th time before you've had time to shower or even grab a bite to eat for yourself and have no one appreciate it or even notice. I would completely understand sweetie!
SO glad you are back Can't wait to hear about all your Monkey adventures!!

I was wondering where you went and the reason for your bloggy break.

Glad you're back. The birthday pictures are awesome!
