Suz, start rolling your eyes....

...cuz I'm doing this.  Again.

The first time I ever participated in NaBloPoMo was in November 2010.  Since then, I've done it several more times, sometimes several months in a row.

As you well know, I've been a bit absent from the Blogosphere for the past 7 months or so.  I miss my Bloggy Buddies.  I check in when I can, and/or when I feel up to it.  I lurk here and there, sometimes even dropping a comment or two.  But, I'm nowhere near the place I used to be when it comes to my blog.  There is just too much going on in my life, and I let this blog get pushed to the back burner, because I told myself it was the least of my concerns right now. 

But, I've had a change of heart recently.  One of the main reasons I STARTED this blog was to have an outlet, a place to vent and share the "crazy" before it made me implode.  I realize I need to start doing that again.  Yes, my life is crazier and more stressful than it's EVER been, but I can't let that keep my away anymore.  I need to start spewing some of it before I lose it. 

I probably won't be sharing every little detail, the way I have in the past, because now it's not just about me, and I have to respect the privacy of others. (Hi, Honey!)  But, I plan to share what I can.  One of the reasons I stopped sharing is because I did NOT want to be a Debbie Downer.  I didn't want to be "that" poster who only posted complaints and sob stories.  But, then I thought back on some of the posts I've done in the past when I had hit rough patches, and it was the love and support of my Bloggy Buddies that pulled me through those dark times.  I think I need that again.

So, I've committed to NaBloPoMo for November!  Yay!  I'm going to go on record right now and say that some days, I may just post a picture, or a silly ecard.  But, I WILL post something, anything, every day.  I'll also warn you that many of those posts will probably be about my beautiful little Monkey.  I mean, come on, I haven't bored you with pictures and stories about her in AGES!  You won't believe how big she's gotten.  She's not a baby anymore. =(  I have LOTS of cute stories saved up for you.  =)

I'll leave you with a bit of good news from today - Stud got a job this morning!!  Hallelujah!  He starts his new job under the Golden Arches on Wednesday.  (During my hiatus, he had, and then lost, a job at Culver's.  Maybe I'll post about it one day...)  Hopefully, I'll have more little nuggets of happy news to share this month.  Keep your fingers crossed....
