Me Again

So, you knew I'd be back, right? 

I tried to retire; I tried harder, I think, than Brett Favre, to retreat. 

But, see, my husband bought this GREAT used laptop.  It actually works on its own battery without being plugged in and without burning my legs through my pajamas. 

And, today I didn't feel like a hulled out shell, a husk of a human being; today, I felt almost lifelike.
And I feel guilty writing comments so long on other blogs, like Kia's, that really it's like I'm blogging on someone else's time. (Thank you, Kia, for letting me confess about the polka dotted prom dress -- AND the matching shoes. I've needed to get that one off my chest!) 
And some of you nice people have been nagging at me in the most beautiful ways to get back to business. 
And I've been reading all of you so much, you've made me think of more things I need to say... 
And my kids are growing and changing and teaching me things...

Will you have me back? Anyone still reading? 
Well, if so, you have my greatbighuge gratitude. And if not, I'll be here anyway. I really blog mostly for me, for the process, for the release, for the self care. And I think I'm ready to take a little bit better care of me. 

Still, I know it's been less than a month, but I missed you.

I had a feeling you'd be back so I just let my feed reader do its thing and figured I'd pick you back up when it screamed new.

I'm still waiting to not feel so hulled out to back to my blog as well.

woo hoo! when my blogger update said you had posted just 14 hours ago I was so excited....

I am so glad to see you back! :) It may have been less than a month - but you were MISSED.... much like Brett Favre -when you have a gift and a passion that is part of you you feel compelled to use your gift! and while it may have been meant for just you - it has been used to bless many! I'm so glad to see you back my friend! blessings!

WHAT? You're posting again? Shit! I have to catch up!

I had sadly deleted your blog from my rss feed because seeing your blog just made me sad. You totally made my day by 1) commenting on my post, 2) having me just check your blog just in case. Whoo-hoo!

okay, give me a little bit to catch up!
