All righty then...

Wednesday, September 24, 2014

Hi...I want to write to you all to say that I am Ok...a little fatter for sure for not Sparking lately but OK. I want to blog...but I don't know how to explain all that has happened lately actually. Patrick and I are fine, the kids are fine...don't worry...I just have started writing this and have to delete it all because I don't know how much to share.

Can I say this....really good things are happening. Change is in the air for us. As you probably know, I am married to someone very special in many ways but in particular in the culinary world. These last few years have not been easy though and we have been fighting to build and maintain a specific career path. Somehow since the spring here has been some sort of energy around him that has drawn 3 international companies to ask him to consider throwing his chef hat in the ring for rather amazing projects (one was even for a chef that you might know of with the initials GR who is known for being a bit of a yeller ;-)

Anyway, one of these positions turned out to be just perfect (not the one for GR) and yesterday he accepted it. I will share more details as things progress for sure as it is in a but of an unusual location and although we have had months to get used to the idea I am still getting my head wrapped around the fact that it is actually going to happen.

So...because I have a tendency to ...you know..."talk" a bit much, I decided it was best for me to just go through this all privately with Patrick. This is really one of the main reasons for my silence. (I don't trust my own self to keep my mouth shut! emoticon ) Speaking of that...do me a favour...a couple of you are friends with Patrick on spark....just don't offer congratulations at this point, if you don't mind...I can't explain why...but it would be more appropriate later on once we have a few things settled. Thanks.

I am gong to go now...I want to write more now that things have been decided...plus I have truly gained a bit of weight during all of this and need to get back on track. My best laid plans were laid aside I am afraid! So I will try to be back...I will make some goals and I will get myself back on track.

Thank you to my friends for being here for me even though I have been quite absent lately. I hope you understand.

    Hi Ronna,

    Good to hear from you. I can identify with much. I'm up several lbs. after being sick all summer and giving time to my Mom who had heart surgery.

    My hubby has been in crisis... 7 completely different jobs (in different fields) in 7 years. Now he's at a prestigious university, supposedly a great place to work, but he hates it. Well, yesterday he applied for a job, interviewed today and got the job offer tonight. Hope this will be the right fit and he'll be happy.

    Glad Patrick didn't go with GR... yelling and rage don't promote peace of mind. I think of you guys often. My Marty is turning 17, still feels he was "born to bake", threw together an apple crisp today with apples we picked.

    Are you still blogging professionally? Glad you are all well.

    Of course we understand. We love you. I am so happy to hear that you are on the right track. You have such a strong and amazing family. I can see you writing a book one day. You all have definitely had some hard times and continue to come through as the shining stars that you are.

    You do whatever you are comfortable with when it comes to blogging and sharing. We are here for you. Regarding the weight, you know what to do and you also know that sometimes life comes first. You will get back to where you want to be in time, no doubt about it. It is a process right? HUGS!
