I'm Baaaack.

Wow. It's really hard for me to believe it was March of 2011 when I last blogged.  I took losing Marty pretty hard and most of what I formerly blogged about were celebrations of sorts.  I didn't feel that I could write like that again after posting about his dying.  I should never have gotten away from this.  A lot has happened since my last post, and I will only re-cap the major occurrences--
  • I moved from being the Career and Technical Education Counselor to a "regular" School Counselor
  • Jeremy was laid off from work and now is in a different position with the State of Iowa
  •  a nephew and niece entered the world
  • we moved into a new house
  • I lost my beloved Grandma Marty
  • I ran in a lot of races and read some great fiction
  • Ava started school and has since completed kindergarten
  •  Alex was diagnosed with a life-threatening tree nut allergy
  • I completed another post-master's certificate in School Administration
  • my dad got engaged
  •  I saw our POTUS *twice*
  • and very recently, I nearly lost my mommy.  
Since the last time I blogged I feel that I have aged more in that time than any other in my life.  I've put a lot of pressure on myself, some unnecessarily.  I am back to the blog because I think it's cathartic for me to share what's going on in my life and my mind.  So, for those of you that I asked why I am not longer blogging and suggested that I get back to it, thank you.  I needed the little boost to get going again.
