Been Missing YOU

My life is so full, and complete, and just plain good right now that I really don't have anything to complain about. So this complaint really isn't a complaint at all. More like an observation, really.

I miss blogging. I miss reading. I miss commenting. I miss posting. There. I said it.

I miss keeping up with my bloggy buddies and feeling connected.

For so long blogging was really a lifeline for me. I wasn't working, except for some subbing and tutoring, and we really weren't well established in our new hometown. Infertility was a lonely, scary place to be and and it was way less scary and way less scary in the blogosphere.

And really, if there's anything I miss about my travels through infertility and beyond it's the blogging. I sure don't miss the doctor appointments, tests, blood draws, injections, ultrasounds and mounting medical bills. I sure don't miss the much too short lived pregnancies and surgeries.

And as time passed blogging changed as we continued our journey and became parents. And more recently, I miss keeping up with the hard-fought for pregnancies, adoptions, and quickly growing more and more adorable little munchkins!

I love my class this year, I have the best third graders ever. I've needed to love teaching again, so this is wonderful. That being said, it's kicking my butt. I hate having to be away from Andrew during the day. My precious few hours with him each day pass way too quickly. By the time I get him fed and put to bed I'm just done. D - O - N - E. I try to blog, but nothing coherent comes out. I read blogs, and comment, but my comments sound dumb so I don't post them.

But, Spring Break is within sight. In 48 hours I'll be free, free, free! I'll have two glorious weeks! One of my goals is to get back into the swing of blogging, and to give back some support and friendship to this wonderful community that means the world to me.


  1. You are a blessing and while I've missed your blogs (and missed YOU), I know how busy things can get! It's so great to have such a great class this year and to truly dive into what you love to do again. Enjoy the last two days with your class, and then revel in spring break with your little boy and your amazing family! Hope to see you over break my friend!

  2. Life gets in the way!!! But I appreciate your updates ... I was nervous while reading the beginning of your post. I thought you were going to say you were no longer going to blog. PHEWWWWW!!!
    I want to be able to keep up with the sweet sweet boy (no pressure)...and you of course!!!

  3. Two weeks for spring break?? That is crazy awesome!! Enjoy your time off!

    It is good to hear from you!

  4. Miss you too, Chris! Although you haven't been around, every update has been wonderful to hear and I enjoy seeing Andrew grow...

    And don't worry about commenting--just saying "hi" is a good enough comment!

    Miss you too! Can't wait to "see" you next week. And don't worry about the content of the comment. Just :-) to let me know you were there...

  6. Yay for 2 weeks off, enjoy it!

  7. I know exactly how you feel. I have never been super regular myself but now, even though I have so much I'd like to share, I find it really hard to make time for blogging...

  8. I'm here and following and know you're out there, whether you're posting or not. Granted, I love hearing all about you guys and seeing what is going on in your life. But I also know how hard it is to get into posting at this particular point. I'm glad to see you so happy!
