something like an update

Long time, no

Hello, friends (and hello, blog! I almost forgot how to log in. Sheesh!)

I left rather unceremoniously, didn't I.  Sorry about that. I really didn't mean to freak anyone out.  I stopped due to problems with the blogging service, and then I kept away day after day for different reasons at different times. The list is long.

Over the last week or so I'd been thinking I'd start back up again Aug 1, but to be honest, I'm still not quite there yet.  I have a couple more weeks left of a hectic summer before MyFavoriteKid goes back to school, and I have a couple more weeks left of this danged bathroom renovation at TheNewDiggs.   The damn thing was supposed to be a 4-weeks-or-so project (maybe a bit longer as our sub-contractors have been on summer schedule with their families) but this is now week 10, and it will probably be 12 weeks in total before we're done.  Quite frankly, there's been so much drama and stress around this renovation at times, I even get sick of hearing myself even thinking about it, let alone talking about it, and there is no way I have wanted to reinforce my angst by typing it up.  And you can thank me for sparing you. Truly.

A couple more weeks. I'm giving myself that. It's a good thing. For all of us.
Look for me mid month or so ;-)

X's & O's to all of you, and thanks so much for the notes checking in on me. Love you guys :-)

Glad you're ok and good luck with the bathroom - in the tail end of a kitchen project myself so feel your pain!

So good to see this! I'm glad you're fine, and it's regular (chaotic) life that's keeping you away. Now I can wait easily for whatever you write next. :)
Also, good for you for stopping when you needed to take a break!

So glad you didn't run away to Mexico without me! I would have missed our beachside margarita-drinking knit-fests. ;-)

Hope that bathroom reno is over soon, I know it must be driving you mad.

Whew...I'm a lurker, rarely comment, but I have to tell you how much I missed reading your blog every night. Hope things go well, and you can get back to entertaining us. (because it's all about us, right!) Seriously, keep smiling!

It's good to hear from you and know that you're okay! Sorry you've had so such stress, but I'm looking forward to hearing from you when you're ready.
Take care.

Happy to hear that the reason for the lack of blog posts was a problem with the blog service and not anything else. Happy to see you are back on the hoarse and look forward to reading your posts again. Good to have you back :)
