Thank You!

I realized that my last post, regarding this blog's recent nomination, did not include a proper "Thank You" to whoever nominated me. I do apologize.  I was so surprised that I got caught up in the excitement.  So... "Thanks!" You made my day.

To all of you that have cast votes for me: "Thanks, to you, too!"  I don't expect my blog to win awards or become hugely popular; it's just a way for me to express myself and if it helps a few people on the way, even better.  There are many other blogs in the running that are truly worthy of your votes so just being included has been exciting for me.  I've also found some new (to me) blogs on the list that I'm looking forward to visiting.

It seems that someone has nominated me for Circle of Moms Top 25 Mental Wellness Blogs. I'm flattered for sure. Now I guess I need to get back to blogging right? (Trust me, I have A LOT of material to work into a blog post these days; if only I could find the time!)If you'd like to vote for me, I'd greatly appreciate it and say "Thank You!" in advance.

Questions from a SAHM for working parents

In case you hadn't seen this yet, I just had to share. It gave me quite the chuckle. (Even if you're a working parent, I think you'll find it funny.)

Just a Little Catch-Up

Is there such a thing as blogger's block?  I think I have it.  Even when I have time to write a post, I just can't seem to get my thoughts together enough to do so. {Sigh........}  I'm even behind on my blog reading so I apologize for my lack of comments there, too.

Life has been busy and, believe me, I have A LOT that I actually could blog about if only I could get it together.  There is hope there, though, right?  Shall we say I've just been on a family first hiatus?

My son is doing well with all his therapies but the crazy schedule is starting to take it's toll and we are counting down the days until summer vacation. (Perhaps then I will find time to blog again?)  He's a never-ending ball of energy and I... well, I am not. Lol. 

January brought with it a miscarriage at 7 weeks and it seemed our run of rough patches had not come to an end after all.  Fortunately, we had our little guy to remind us how lucky we are and make us smile when we least expected it. 

In March, my first kitty passed away.  Not completely unexpected but very sad none-the-less.

HOWEVER.... March also brought good news:  another chance at a sibling for J!  Things are going well so far (well, minus almost four months of 24/7sickness and a bought of acute bronchitis for me; but I digress) and we pray that all continues to go well.  This, of course, brings renewed fear of PPD again and how I'll cope with two.  More on that later, I'm sure.

As just a final note, I thought I'd point out that May is Mental Health Awareness Month.  Spread the word.
