'Round and 'round she goes ... where she stops, nobody knows

*tap tap tap* Is this thing on?

Why, yes, that IS a slightly cliche'ed way to say it's been a long time since I stopped by these here parts.

Where have I been?

Hmmm. I don't know. Just around, I guess.

Since Thanksgiving, I have had a birthday (and a birthday dinner), Hanukkah with the children, our traditional Christmas Day movie with all the kids and "dinner on Christmas" with the parental units.

We've had a major roof leak, leading to a significant part of drywall being removed while we watched water run into our bedroom.

Football season ended and cheer competition season has begun.

I have also had three epidurals to help my hurting, bulging disk, after which I promptly compounded my problem with a graceful fall down a flight of stairs. Giving me a lovely 800-mg-of-ibuprofen-three-times-a-day habit.


2010 is flying to an end with a speed that rivals the stealth bomber, leaving me to wonder: Where did this year go? Where is this blog going? Where am I going?

What the heck am I doing?

I actually have stories to tell. My high school reunion. The fun that is our Christmas traditions. The Roo-girl's transition to independence with a driver's license (omigod). I just haven't had the intestinal fortitude to sit and write them.

But I want to -- and wanting is the first step toward doing.

So here's to a fresh start for 2011. A chance to be all that I can be. The first day of the  rest of my life.

I'm going to just DO it.

I've missed your stories and look forward to seeing more in 2011. Happy Hanukkah late and Happy New Year early.

I'm looking at 2011 in the same way, so there will be more of my insanity for everyone on the web to come and see - yourself included. :-)

Here's to hoping 2011 is a little bit kinder to you. :-)

I knew you were out there - after all, we do play Lex. Which is the ONLY reason I haven't flooded you with emails asking "Are you alright?" - "hey, you okay" - etc.

Glad you might find your way back. I love you and your crew. I miss their stories - as told by you. I miss you.

Been missing you here in Blogville. You bring a lot of humor to those who can use a dose of it, my friend. :)
