Man, do I suck

My life has been insane for the last year. Nothing genuinely tragic (such as a death or serious medical emergency), but enormous amounts of stress and fucked-upedness. I'm fine and my family is fine but it's been a helluva ride. Obviously I've been absent from here for nearly a year. I still compose posts in my head on a daily basis but never get off my fat ass to write them. Bloglines essentially went down the tubes and took my list of blogs with it. So I haven't even been reading much. I feel like I got knocked over the head with a frying pan, then was put on a rowboat and set adrift in the Atlantic. I am so woefully out of touch with all of you that I'm not even sure where to start to catch up. And that sucks. However, if *thinking* about you all the time counts more than making the time to actually *contact* you over the last year or to read your blogs over the last 3 months, then I'm all stocked up. I've woefully and dreadfully neglected each and every one of my IF sisters (including TOOTPU and the Braces Bunch) to the point that asking for forgiveness is laughable. But I guess I am. And I'm wondering what's new with you all.

*waves* I transferred everyone over to google reader so I can at least pretend I'm keeping up with everyone.

Since you and I are close in age (and have children with an age gap); I often think of you. Glad you and the family are fine!

I can totally understand a roller coaster ride--the past year has been rough on a lot of us, I think.

Here's hoping the rest of this year we hear a lot of updates from you--all good, I hope! :-)

Hi!!!! NO need to ask forgiveness. I am just happy to hear from you. And, you're in good company (if I do say so myself!) when it comes to not blogging and being out of touch. I'm sorry to hear you've had a hard year, and I hope things are improving for you. Missed you!

Hey lady! Good to hear from you. No need for apologies, we all have things that come up that keep us from blogging.

Good to hear that all is fine with you and the family.

Glad to hear from you here and on my blog! I hope whatever has been going on is resolved and good things are coming your way!

Meghan said...

Hey there lady!! Good to hear from you. I'm also horrible about blogging, although every few months I swear I'm going to get better and it lasts a week or so.

Sorry you've had a rough year, hoping things turn around for you

Christy said...

Helloooooo! So good to see you back! I've been wondering about you and I'm glad you are all well. I totally get how time gets away . . .

Portia P said...

Hello there!
I'm also totally rubbish about posting. Life is just too hectic to find the time. Lame excuse really.
Glad you're still out there and hope all's ok now?
I should really update my life on my blog - lots going on - but WHEN???!!!
Glad I checked in though xx

Well, not so dramatic events nor so long, but I keep mentally composing posts that never get written.

Glad to hear from you!

Hello! I know you don't know me, but we've got something in common. I got your blog address off the Stirrup Queen's blogroll and was wondering if you wouldn't mind helping me help a couple who is trying to add a little one to their family. We're holding a silent auction for them this weekend (Friday and Saturday) on and need help getting the word out! We would love it if you would spread the word via social media or here on your blog. Additionally, we are always looking for more donations to auction off, so if you or someone you know might be interested in making a donation, all the information is under the donate tab. If you have any questions or would be willing to post a pre-written blog post about the auction and the sponsored couple, please contact Kristin at Thanks in advance for taking the time to consider this!

I can’t believe this. A great testimony that i must share to all fibroid patient in the world. i never believed that their could be any complete cure for fibroid with out going for surgery ,i saw people’s testimony on blog sites and Facebook page of how Dr Williams prepare herbal cure for different king of disease,and with the help of his herb they where able to shrink there fibroid naturally. i had to try it too and you can,t believe that in just few weeks i started using it all my pains stop gradually . Right now i want to tell you all that i just give birth to a baby boy last month,and on thin now i have not had any pain, and i have just went for text last week and the doctor confirmed that there is no trace of any fibroid in my system . Glory be to God for leading me to this great Dr Williams I am so happy as i am sharing this testimony. My advice to you all who thinks that their is no herbal cure for fibroid that is Not true ,just contact him and get cure from his email and you will be free and free forever, Try it and you will not regret it because it truly works. i hope to see your testimony soon.


"Dear dr williams, your herb has saved my life and my sanity. I was scared, and had been seeing numerous specialists and almost all of the straight away told me I had to remove my uterus because of my large fibroid. Can you believe this? To top it all up, none of those doctors had answered my simple questions on the subject. I was so scared that I would not be able to have a baby as surgery seemed like the only choice then. Your product had dramatically allayed my fears. I have read many other guides on the subject of fibroids and i think dr williams herb is yours offers and the only true and lasting solution to fibroid. I am a walking living proof of that claim. It has been 3 months since I implemented dr williams herbal portion, and I am now completely clear of fibroids and I am sure I am on my way to become a mother. I also feel very healthy and vibrant. Thank god for your work and support dr williams, for more information about his herb you can also contact his email address

"With Dr Williams,herbal medicine I felt very empowered after I started his medication and the results came very quickly I might add. Contrary to what my doctor had recommended, (that I would have my uterus removed) I have succeeded in less than 4 weeks to treat all the symptoms associated with my fibroids (including the pain, bleeding and bladder pressure) and within 4 weeks, my huge 8.2cm & 8.5cm fibroids had shrunk into almost nothing. Thank you so much for this terrific publication. I also recently experienced a symptom-free menstruation, which was nothing short of remarkable, considering the awful state I was in before I was introduced to dr williams life changing medication,for more information on how to get his medicine you can email him in
