Blog me baby one more time. Five reasons I haven’t blogged in over a month.

5. The day after New Years I welcomed 2013 in with norovirus. The worst 48-72 hours I’ve had in years. But wait! It was a 3 for 1 sale so my youngest and middle son got it, too. My poor husband set himself up in the “playroom” to be central to all the pukers. Yes, he spent two days emptying buckets, bringing Gatorade, and forcing anti-nausea pills down our throats. He wins the award for best in the house.

4. I had extra house guests. My son and his friend moved in (complete with the most awesome dog) and let’s just say that kept me not only busy but entertained. I love a full house!

3. I have been on the hunt for work. I can’t say much but HEY if you want to hire me, let me know.

2. The weather has had the barometer going up and down and up and down and … well, that means my migraines are kicking my ass. I even got a lovely trip to the ER. Rather than the usual routine, my blood pressure decided to go sky high so they got to add extra meds and IV’s. Big fun people. And trust me, though it may be entertaining for me to write on the medicine the hospital gives me, it is wrong for me on so many levels.

And the number 1 reason I haven’t blogged:

1.  My son and his friend moved out. Into their own apartment. It is close, so I am blessed. But MOVED OUT. Like his room is empty. And my heart hurts. I have an entire blog post about it but let me just give you a taste with this: Why don’t people talk more about how it hurts when you feel that after almost 20 years, your being phased out of your job? We need to talk about that.  And I will. Both here and on Teen Raisers.

SO there you have it. Why I was blogging not like it was 2003 but more like it was 2002. You know, back before this blog in this form existed. So even though I don’t really do Lent (Can you “do Lent??”) I am going to give up putting my thoughts and ideas and such onto Facebook and am going to blog. So, for Lent, I am giving up not blogging.

Are you with me? What are you giving up?

    My whole family got the flu on New Years. Clearly 2013 had it in for all of us.

    Whew. You have been busy! ER trips and migraines are not at all fun.

    That Teen Raisers site is a great idea. My daughter is quickly approaching 10, and that puts her into tweendom. I’m scared. I am going to need some Teen Raisers to show me the way.
