What a lovely facebook post I was tagged in yesterday by the lovely Tara Cain over at Sticky Fingers. It really brought me back to the time when blogging was fun, less competitive and we were just moms with with kids looking for ways to connect with each other, to laugh and cry about all the wonderful and sometimes painful things happening in our day to day lives. Don’t get me wrong I’m not knocking the bloggers who have monetized their blogs, more power to you, I just miss the simplicity of it all.
Nickie from Typecast struck a chord when she said it can still be that, you just have to not care about everything else and just blog. Thank you Nickie!
So… this morning I got up, grabbed my grumpy mug, my generic kuerig… It’s a HamiltonBeach, but it has Hamilton in the title, that has to count for something, right? I digress… Where was I? Oh yes! My Natural bliss pumpkin pie creamer, and I decided I was going to say I MISSED YOU!
I don’t know if you missed me, but I really miss the late night writing and waking up to find all the lovely comments of support, making friendships, many of which I still have on facebook. I find myself smiling and my heart swelling when I see how much our kids have grown and how lovely they all are. I miss the laughs, the humor and most of all I miss the relief of knowing there were and are moms out there who were just like me!
So what have we been up to these last few years? Well, I went back to work and I’m currently employed in a high school. I’m not a teacher, but don’t tell the officer who pulled me over yesterday because he thought I was and decided not to give me a ticket for that reason… I’ll save that story for tomorrow! My husband is still an insurance adjuster, but recently changed companies. Meg is growing up far to quickly and is, as always, my hero! Daisy our fabulous dog is getting older and likes to hide in the bathroom when storms come, peeking her head out from behind the shower curtain like the nosey neighbor does from behind the blinds. Finally, we have a new addition to the family… Dave The Diva, our chubby little hamster, who likes to keep me up at night with his squeaky wheel! I might have to do a blog post about the things you don’t think about when you’re sucked into buying that adorable, fluffy, little rodent!
I know I’ve said it before, reference my last few posts, but I think I’m back! Yep! I think I’m going to give the blogging thingy a go again! I’m not going to self host or worry about stats and I might drive Nickie crazy with my poor grammar, but if you’re interested in watching how I slide through life one banana peel at a time (did you like that little nod to my tag line? Yes I’m that corny!) I would love to follow you and if you would like me to follow you put your link in the comments and till next time…

PS. Thanks Tara for the look back and the reminder of why I loved blogging. *kisses*
PPS. Wow… my blog needs a little dusting! I may have to give it a face lift!
