A long overdue Goodbye?

Yep, it's been over two months since my last post.

Am I alive? Am I OK? Am I still on the search for balance?

Yes. Yes. And yes.

It's amazing to me to think about all that's happened in the past year or so. So much life has been lived. So many ups and so many downs.

Lately, things have been good. Busy. Sometimes hard, but good.

In that quest for balance that I left you all with a couple of months ago, I realized that some things just had to go. And some things just had to come in.

Unfortunately, the blog is one of those things that had to go.

I love blogging, I love writing and I love sharing. But the time consumed by it all was just too much.

I've written so many blog posts in my head over the last two months, but have not been able to dig up the time to sit down and get it all down. Add downloading, editing and uploading photos...that's an hour or two of work!

So what am I doing with my time?

I've lost about ten pounds now that I'm working out about 3 times a week. I've been spending more time on what we eat. We've been working on the house. I've been chasing after TWO very mobile children. Working. And now I'm going to be starting some classes to clear my credential.

When I have a few moments on the computer to myself, it's usually spent watching a tv show or two. The last thing I want to do is think.

So, is this a goodbye? Quite possibly.

Is it forever? Doubt it.

I'm sure I'll post here and there. And who knows, with summer coming, maybe I'll be more inspired to post more. Or maybe I'll just use nap time to float in the pool.

I'm so sorry to those of you who use this blog to follow along with the kids. If you would like, you can keep up with my flickr photos. On the right of this page is a flickr photo slideshow. That will link you to my page and you can add me as a friend. Flickr will send you emails whenever I upload new pictures.

Yes, I know those pictures are also quite old. Well, the power cord of my mac broke AGAIN, so I have a ton of photos on my camera that I have not uploaded to a computer or to flickr. When I finally go get a new cord, new photos will be posted...I promise.

Thank you all for being such awesome readers...hopefully, I'll be back again soon!
