Hello, Again! Let's Play 20 Questions


Illness, end of summer, work, work, work.

End of the summer brings on a rush to do things. A rush to check off things we haven't done. A rush to get school supplies. A rush to get all the details in place.

It's exhausting. And, I got sick.

I mean knocked on my ass, morning emergency room visit, down and out for a few weeks. Nothing too terrible, but it snuck up on me.

How is it our motherly instincts are so honed on our children's well being, but when it comes to our own health we are lacking?

All of my energy went into just getting out of bed, caring for my family, and getting to work. I took time off from writing, sharing, and as little as possible on social media. It's sort of refreshing.

Now that I feel more like myself, I thought I would take a moment to re-introduce myself and my family. A sort of, "Hello, world!"
