I knew it had been a long time since I last posted. I was pretty shocked to realize it had been two years. Yipes. Two years of neglecting to put down my kids funny stories, my successes and failures, my frazzled thoughts. I'm not sure it matters in the greater scheme of things, this is mainly for my own entertainment (I don't think many people ever read my posts anyway)... which I guess means I'm talking to myself. I have actually posted these funny things on other social media accounts. I haven't not posted things. I just haven't fluffed it up here. Which is fine. But a small part of me still kind of mourns missing two whole years embellishing the funny things my kids have said and done. Xander was just a tot the last time I was here and now he's 5.

We've moved through a few chapters in our lives. Maybe I'll go back and dwell on some of them, later. For now I've tweaked the look of this page a teensy bit. I've changed the name of the blog to something equally lame but slightly more satisfying. Temporarily at least. I'm not 100% settled with it, but it's an accurate description. My life is very ordinary. I don't do big spectacular things, but there are a lot of things in my life that make my heart swell with emotion and I don't want to take that for granted. So, tentatively, I'm going to try and get back to this gig. Put down some thoughts and stories because they are worth remembering, even if it's only in passing.
