The One With A Little Break...

4 months.

Seriously? Seriously. I can't believe I "shut down" my blog for 4 months. My friends and family know how important blogging is to me, but sometimes life gets in the way. This incarnation of my blog has been in existence for a year and a half, but my "old" blog has been around for years. I can't believe I've been blogging for almost 4 years!

You all know that I went through a divorce in 2009. Honestly it just wasn't something I felt like talking much about. There wasn't a lot to say about it. We were in an unhappy marriage and separately, we are both happier now. I can say that with complete certainty for me, and with probable certainty for my ex husband. I felt for a while in the latter part of 2009 that I didn't want to share things that were going on in my life for my ex to read about. I felt like eventually he would grow bored of checking up on me and I could resume my relationship with my online friends. A public online persona is just that...public, and anyone can read what you write, in most circumstances. I'm granted some privacy on Facebook and on private forums, but ultimately the internet is very public.

I've found out recently that my ex isn't as uninterested as I would have thought. Just today I found out that he is still interested enough in my life to find what he can online. But you know what? That's okay. I don't write for him. And I don't care if he reads what I write. He was a very important part of my life for 4 years, we shared some fun times and made some very beautiful children. But beyond that, I've moved on. In 2010, I'm going to re-embrace my passions...including scrapping and blogging, and I'm making no apologies.

I'm back, friends. It's so good to be back!

With that, let's get to it! I'd love to share my Project 365 to date!
1/365. Get Well Soon. My wonderful sister brought me flowers in hopes of lifting my spirits, 3 days post-op from my TAH/BSO.

2/365. Happy Birthday. Despite 20 degree weather and me being still under the weather, we ventured out for James' 35th birthday. We ate out and picked up a cake, a very nice evening!


3/365. Spiderman Cake. Today we had Tab, Tim, her kids & my kids down for a little party for James' birthday. The cake turned out awesome and was yummy too!

4/365. 6 days out. 6 days post-op and feeling okay. The estrogen is my friend.

Well this brings me up to date! I'm going to go now...I've got some scrapping to do...but we'll catch up more later, friends. Toodles!
