I feel terribly...
that I dropped off the face of the earth for a few weeks.

I didn't know a tactful way to come back and apologize. I know you all understand how life gets busy and things take over...
But I also know that many of you were worried about me, and I feel I acted rudely to not take time off without leaving you hanging and worried. I also know a lot of you are going through challenging times, and I haven't forgotten you or stopped caring about you!

I am so sorry that I couldn't just find a way to get on here before now to tell you all
I am safe
doing well
Just overwhelmed.
I am trying to repaint some rooms, have a garage sale, have my lil guy in PT, helping my Mom with things, up to my ears in junior high and high school homework, Brownies, church activities and trying to nurture some friendships here and find time to be with my husband- which often means meeting him for a coffee in the morning while there are no kids....just so many of you! Only I feel buried most of the time....grasping for control!!

I am sorry to my fellow teammates for just dropping the ball and disappearing. It is not like me to do that, but something had to give. 4 kids have me busy!

I am still out here, battling my bulge and hoping to be back November 1. If not then, as soon as I have more time at home.

I love you all and hope you continue to do great! Hope you won't forget about mke while I'm taking a break!!

    Good to know all is well my beautiful spark friend. I too have the same issue going on with things overwhelming me, teaching school, grading papers, chruch play rehearsal, writing class, new boyfriend and on and on the list goes.

You are doing the, NO we are doing the best we can an SP people if not anything else are forgiving, loving, kind and understanding.

    I don't think you need to apologize. Life happens. And your family is ALWAYS a priority! I'm so happy your priorities are in place!

Check in when you can. Hugs to you!
