I am alive. I realize you probably thought I'd given up...and I guess I did, on many things, for many months. But don't worry, I keep the important stuff! My kids, my marriage, my faith....still very much intact. I think I just got to a point where I was tired of talking (quit laughing. totally serious.)--sometimes I feel like I live groundhog day (we all do)--same stuff, in some form or fashion, a different day. But I'm back (I know, I've said it before) and I'm sure I'll have lots to say.....until then, feast your eyes on my babies:).
