Yes, it has been awhile. Tonight I was talking on the phone with Matt, my brother, about his blog. Matt proposed that I write something for his blog, as a guest blogger, and the thought excited me! But then I thought, what the heck? I have my own soapbox! So here I am. Sorry for my absence.
In a nut shell, here is what has happened in the last few months...
-my kids are still as crazy as ever and are the primary source for this blog.
-my dog got rid of her mohawk. Recently.
-we gave away our sugar gliders last weekend. Hundreds of dollars down the drain.
-I got divorced.
-5 seconds after the flying squirrels left my kids started in on a new dog.
-I still live in the same house as my ex-husband.
-Hannah didn't make the HS soccer team, so both kids are playing rec.
-I'm still in grad school and doing well, but also freaking out occasionally.
-I am considering dating.
-I grew my hair out and dyed it blonde.
-my ex-husband and I are friends.
-my evil and irritating tweenage "boss" left (was let go) and I took her position.
-I am starting over with a social life.
-I am venturing out of my shell and making friends.
-I recently rammed a bus into a basketball hoop at the local elementary school and ripped a hole in the top of the bus and my boss didn't fire me.
-I feel better than I have in years emotionally.
-I recently (4 days ago) gave up sugar, flour, and dairy.
-I am still very much a crazy person.
