Dear Blog

Dear Blog,
I miss you!  My life has changed so much since my last post... and its going to change a little more before I'm settled again.  The changes are good.  They are exciting.  They have me holding on for dear life because it's a hell of a ride.

I am spending more time with my kids.
I am getting them ready for school every day.
I take them there, drop them off, and pick them up.
I am in charge of my house for the first time since we moved into it 3 years ago.
I do the dishes now....
and the laundry!
Those things are no longer someone else's responsibility... They are MINE!
I am busy packing.
And downsizing our material possessions.
I am upsizing the love in my heart.
I am learning how to do all the things I didn't have time for before.
I am getting closer to my kids than I have ever been before.
I am bonding with them.
Its only now that I realize how much bonding there was left to do.
That makes me sad and happy at the same time.
I am reeling in Diabetes.
I am getting a better bead on the numbers... and soon I will OWN this stupid disease.
I am busy in ways I have never been busy before.
And I LOVE my new life!

I will check in again soon... and I look forward to all the posts I have swirling in my head and in my heart.
