I'm Coming Back. ..

So, Miss Allie asks me how come she doesn't see me "blogging" much or on my Chit Chat for Mommies website as much - and I realized that not only didn't I have a very good answer (anymore) but that I really missed it.

I think I first got "out of the loop" when I was starting to feel sick and and tired and then we finally figured out I had Mono and I was just too exhausted to stay up and blog or work on my website.

Then 2 weeks ago our house was broken into and I'm still have issues about feeling safe in my own home - its better, but I'm still a bit anxious about every noise I hear. Thankfully no one (including the dogs) were hurt - but things were taken, stuff was rifled through and it left me with a really yucky feeling.

But mostly, I had a really nice (albeit some might say a little late at night) routine - I would work on my website after Allie and Rich were both sleeping - when my creative juices would flow. It didn't leave me time for lots of sleep, but I didn't feel draggy and it wasn't until I got sick that I thought the lack of sleep was impacting me.

So, I know I miss connecting with my readers and blogging and working on my website and one of my birthday presents that I am going to give myself (along with my yearly promise of promising I'm going to lose weight so I can feel good in a bathing suit by the summer. . .that is the one good thing about a November birthday - its a nice motivation to be able to feel good in a bathing suit. Unfortunately, I have never quite actually made good on that gift to myself. . .) is to find another routine that works.

So, thank you to all of you who still continue to subscribe to my blog - even though its been very sparse lately. And thanks to all of you who send me amazing little emails asking if I'm okay and where I am. . .

And I'd like to leave you with one little chuckle. . .on Saturday night my girlfriends are planning a sleepover party for me to celebrate my 40th -can I tell you how excited I am??? Why should Allie have all the fun at sleepovers??

Anyways, Rich & Allie are having a daddy/daughter date and her choice is to go rock climbing and see High School Musical 3 (for a 4th time!). . .so Allie told me that she is really excited for my birthday in "3 more wake-ups". I told her, no, my birthday is on Friday, 2 more wake ups. She said, no I'm really excited to celebrate your birthday with Daddy at High School Musical 3 when you are having a sleepover with your friends. . .
