I'm Back!

I'm back. A year & 4 months (and 1 kid) later. What, you might ask, has inspired me to make the big return? I suppose it is a number of things. 2 kids are napping, the hubby is at work, the house is clean (well sort of) & supper is ready to be cooked. Don't get me wrong, there are a number of things to be done, but I fear that if I commit myself to any of them the kids will wake up. So why not blog a little?

I could go on Facebook. But I find it can be redundant & full of useless information that I don't feel the need to take in at the moment (which can be exhausting). I could turn on the TV. Again, meaningless info that I don't feel the need to digest. A nap, you say? Yes, that I could probably use....but I am not sure I remember how to go about it. So I write. I can't think of anything better to do...

Perhaps re-entering the blog world is my attempt to communicate with a world from which I seem to have vanished lately...I speak of a world with adults. A world where how many books I am going to read before bedtime is a minor issue.  A world where being creative is more than coming up with 5 different ways to convince the child that the chicken on her plate is delicious or picking up toys is the most fun thing in the world(!) Yes, this can be a very fun world to live in, but once in a while a mom's gotta come up for air. Since it is the middle of winter & taking the kids out of the house seems like a huge task, I figured this route will suffice. So here I am. Feel free to join me!
