Not all who wander are lost….

Hello everybody!  Well it certainly has been a minute or so hasn’t it?!?!?

How have you all been?  I know, I know….you’re probably thinking, “if you really wanted to know, you would have written, called, or stopped by”…. PLEASE DON’T THINK THAT!!!!

The truth of the matter is I have missed you all!  I’ve just been busy busy busy

I can honestly say that in the last few months I have experienced some of the best, scariest, AND most satisfying moments of my life, by simply BEING Present.

I have so many stories to share, but I didn’t know where to start and that kept me away a bit longer.  Coming back and finding a new editor has slowed me down a bit too.

Something that might help me catch up on your blogs and also start writing again is some input from you.  I would ask you to drop links to some of your recentposts in my message area, but after the 370k spam comments in one day fiasco, and my unsuccessful attempt at going self hosted, I do think I have my comments sections locked up pretty tightly including having to be approved and blocking any comments with links in them.  If you wouldn’t mind though, if you leave the title to a couple posts, I promise to get over there promptly.

As far as my stories, maybe let me know what you would like to hear about:

  1.  Becoming a grandma
  2.   2 months in the NICU
  3.  The building collapse
  4. What thing 1 and 2 have been up to (big events in both their lives)
  5.  Whether or not I quit smoking (complete with excuses reasons triumphs and failures)
  6. The story about, “Grace I need you to call me ASAP.”
  7. 24 flights
  8. Why Snuff has to wear a cone?
  9. Whether or not I punched the nurse at one of the boys doctor visits
  10. Why I am shrugging so much lately
  11. My foot…. yes it’s still there
  12. How much urine I can hold
  13. Some other random topic that I am sure I can summon an opinion on

If none of these topics sound appealing, please still leave a comment about what’s been happening in your life.

I look forward to catching up!

  1. It is about darn time you are back around Grace! You have been missed so much and I have been thinking about you a lot. I have just been having a hard time with life and mean to email you, but then get so tired I forget what I was about to do. I want to know everything!! Being a new amazing grandmother must be so much fun and I know you are over the moon for your adorable grand babies! Seriously, I am SOOOOOOOOO glad to see you again and miss your great personality that can always make me laugh!!!

    1. I’ve missed you bunches Alissa! To be honest, I dont think I have checked my email in over a month either. I hope that things have been well for you, I will be heading over to check out your blog this week. I cant wait to hear about your move and your new job (yes it has been that long)…. I hope you have been surviving these crazy temps too

  2. While my first vote is for “All of the above” I’m also greatly intrigued by #9. Did you punch a nurse? If you did, well, that’s terrible in a lot of ways and I can’t imagine it being justified, but at the same time I wonder why. I can’t imagine you punching anyone, especially a nurse, without good reason.

    1. Actually I did quit, several times for days at a time. and then i started again and so on. I am currently in the I quit category. As far as the shrugs … when I put more thought into it I will let you know, if I don’t get knocked out for doing it first 😉

  3. Aw hellooooo lovely! I’m sorry you’ve had some difficult times, but glad you’ve had some good times (I hope!) too in being more present lately, it’s such a hard thing to do when overthinking, stress and life in general seems to have other plans. I’ve been here and there, missed a little time and fell behind after ending up poorly and in hospital the other week, so now I’m getting back to blogs again too. I’d love to read more about all those things you’ve mentioned. NICU.. is that an emergency ward? And how much urine you can hold – we can have a competition (I week a heck of a lot, bloody annoying). Sending hugs, hoping to read more from you soon whenever you feel up to it 🙂

    1. ugh hospitals! I hope you are feeling better now!….I hope to be able to catch up on reading more soon! There have definitely been some fantastic moments I can hold my grandsons for hours, but waiting for the 4 mins to pass while warming up their bottles is hell!!!!! NICU is Neonatal intensive Care Unit. The boys were born at 31 weeks and spent 56 days in the NICU (like a whole different planet…. The only really important part about the urine is that this last botox surgery (last week seems to be working) along with ptns, because I can hold 26 oz 800 ml without peeing on myself where when it is not working I might hold 150 ml…BIG DIFF so YAh me!
