I'm BAAAACK - No Really.....

For about 10 days in February, I was ROCKIN’ my blog – maybe you remember?!?!?!  And then….I fell off the face of the blogging world.  I didn’t mean to.  It definitely wasn’t intentional.  As I like to say “life happened”.  Work has been crazier than it has been in a long time.  Our season has definitely started.  I am on a serious scrapbook deadline  - admittedley self imposed (that is how I get things done people).  And, for the better part of a week, I was way under the weather.  It was not one bit fun, but I am on the mend and ready to get back to working out.  And that leads to my exercise derailment….to say I fell off the wagon would be the understatement of the century.  In my defense, a good portion of it has been out of my control, but I would be skirting the truth if I didn’t tell you that I am having trouble re-engaging.  Don’t worry, I am not giving up on the program or myself for that matter.  I am going to start over on the last phase of my Couch Potato to 5K that I had completed and get right back on the wagon.  I am still shooting for a 5K before the TX dog days of Summer take over – I will just have to be much more deliberate about it!  For the few of you that read regularly…keep on me!!!!  In case you haven’t noticed, I do my BEST work under pressure.

So, besides all that what else has been going on?  Well, along with neglecting my own blog I got behind keeping up with everyone else’s.  Me no likey!  I hadn’t realized how much I enjoyed catching up on my regular reads.  I am slowly but surely getting back in the swing.  Zachary finished up indoor soccer last weekend and will start outdoor in a couple of weeks.  It was a rough season, but there was definitely improvement.  I think that they are going to have a good core for next season, so hopefully things will go better.  Friday was the “talent show” at Zachary’s school.  In quotes because talent in most of the cases would be a stretch.  I think perhaps “variety show” would be much more appropriate….just saying.  According to a friend at work, Zach’s skit was a take off on the Gong Show from years ago.  The boys had faces drawn on their bellies, huge cardboard top hats and a dress shirt buttoned around their waists.

They whistled a song with their bellies????  It was comical though.  I am sure there is more that I am missing but I just wanted to get blogging again, so I will fill in any omissions on my next post…..much sooner than later.

WAIT....I am about to forget yet again.  February 22nd was my blogiversary.  Apparently, I let it pass with little recognition (OK no recognition), and for that I feel horrible.  I love my little blog...even though sometimes I am a less than stellar poster.  So on that note…..I am finally going to do a giveaway.  It is going to be hosted by Shannon over at Life After I Dew.  I am so excited and honored that she is hosting for me.  Her blog rocks and let me tell you, she tells it like it is – NO BS GOING ON OVER THERE!!!!!  Stop by and show her some love if you haven't already discovered her.  Stay tuned for details coming next week.

Sleep tight blog peeps! xoxoxo
