...cuz I'm doing this. Again.
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....
