What? She's Posting!??!

Hi all! Still here...

Here's the long and short of it... I have two kids, a husband, family and friends I like to occasionally connect with (like each of you!), I work full time, commute 45 minutes-1 hour (depending), feed people (usually just the ones I live with), eat (clearly too much), bathe people (mainly my children), put those same people to bed (sigh), and CRASH... and, of course, I love every minute of it!! Still, I want to post updates and reclaim "blogging" to my daily itinerary, I really do. I want to be a part of this community who were my lifeline for oh-so long, who saw me through the mania of my existence, who became my family, whose families I came to love... I want to get all this garble that rambles around in my head on a daily basis down here for those of you crazy and kind enough to read along, I want to brag on my kids and my family, I want to upload oodles of snapshots of their gorgeous, sweet mugs and log on to read your comments about their endless cuteness, and antics, and those darndest things they say... I want to spend my morning coffee reading about your day-to-days with your children and your families and your stories of all things parenthood... I want to be with YOU! So, here is my thought... will you join me in my quest to add an hour to the day? What do we need? A petition? I just need one more hour... don't you? With all the new technology to keep up with, with all the ways we feel so pulled to be in touch with our friends in the cyber-world, couldn't you use just one more hour for you FB friends, for you My Space page, to Twit or Tweet, to BLOG, to text, to email.... just one more hour... is it too much to ask?

So, I'm home.... no kids. Never...but today I am. And, I will be again tomorrow for a bit... so, if you are one of the few remaining faithful followers who check in on us from time to time... tell me how to use my gift of an hour tomorrow...

Full blown update on the kids? Pics? Or perhaps I will outline my concerns about my almost two year old and her delayed speech... worry, don't worry? Where do we go? Maybe a little of all of it? Tomorrow... meet me here... I plan to come around to you, too!

Still... and always... much love.

I think you should post about what ever you want to post about! Or....better yet, do something for yourself! I'm going through the delayed speech fears too. I'm glad to see you're still alive!

I agree with Becky. Your blog your call but cute pictures are always a treat too. :) It is great to see you blogging. From Fb I take it you are recovering and that is how you found your "free time" to blog. Hmmm don't wish that on you just so I can see pictures in the future.

I am amazed at how you manage a full time job. Our kids are the exact same ages and I am finding it hard without the job. I would love to hear more about your concerns with L's lang. Maybe we can email and compare. Anika is not a huge talker at this point either. Anyhow summer is coming! hang in there.

Well I just picked my computer up - it fell off my lap from the shock of seeing a post on my side bar from YOU! lol

Oh - post a pic or two of your sweetnesses and then write away about your worries. It's very therapeutic and you know everyone will chime in with love and personal experiences - it's what we do. It's why we're here (for each other).

So grab some coffee and get to blogging - it's good to "see" you again! Miss you all!

OMG I can't believe there was an update from you! :) So good to hear from you. I say pictures are a must! Ooh and about the, I'm busy and work full time and cook and clean......blah, blah, blah try it as a single mom! :)

Beth said...

Oh my gosh, Laurie! I know... I can't imagine... Single moms are among my heroes! It's just all one great, crazy ride however we hop on, huh?!? No complaints here... just buckiling up and enjoying the ride! :)

Susie said...

Ditto to every single thing you said. I have so many things I want to get done, but can hardly keep up with all the things I have to do. Great seeing your update--just check in on us when you can--I totally understand where you're coming from!

Nicole said...

YAY!!! Welcome back! I've been missing updates on you and your crew. I agree - your blog, your forum to share whatever strikes you. We're here for it all! :)

Steph said...

I think I just fell out of my chair!! YOU'RE BACK!!!!! Woohoo!! Hey, enjoy this precious, precious time to yourself. Would love to hear what is going on...

Bobbi said...

HA!! I have missed your witty updates!! And, well, I just saw those gogeous mugs, so I can hold off on pics.......:>) How about a mix of this and that? I am just glancing at the pics on the sidebar, and looking at her 3 month old pics and wondering where the time has gone?? How is she almost two??

Hope you are feeling better, and decided on a project!!!

Yay...an update! I miss your blogging!
Can't wait to see what you've got for us tomorrow!

I smiled when I got this update in my blog reader. :) I am not sure what you are going to write about tomorrow but I know when I open up my reader, in the hour I steal each day, I will smile when I see an update from Peaches and Cinnamon.
