Alive and Kicking but Quite Ashamed

I wish I had the excuse of some grand adventure or amusing misadventure to explain my absence, but the real truth of the matter is that I was wallowing in self pity and not taking the time to be funny. Not that my funny is a gift to the world, but it is a big part of me and I lost it there for a while. Just recently I've been in situations and thought, Gosh, I really need to blog this. My IRL friends don't know about my blog because I have to reserve the right to rag on them anonymously so they couldn't prod me to write in the same way they prodded me to get out of my pajamas at 5 pm or to fix my hair, for chrissakes.

I'm sitting here before 8 am, listening to the birds chirp around me. We spent a week at the beach in SC and it was amazing. I grew up on SC beaches and after having lived in Hawaii and vacationing in Mexico and the Bahamas, I always said that I didn't care if I ever saw the brown water of the Atlantic again. I was wrong because as far as I'm concerned at this very moment, there's no beach finer than the one we are leaving today. Our girls had the times of their lives. I feel more normal than I've felt in months.

Thanks for the prod, Not So Mom-a-licious!

HOoray.... she's back, she's back, she's back! So nice to see you're alive and kicking it!

I too lived in Hawaii.... born and raised till I was almost ten then moved to a teeny tiny town in Georgia. A quick drive to Florida for the beach..... the water wasn't blue and I remember our reaction vividly. Huh?

But now, it's nice and I understand!

Glad you're back.... keep on keepin' on!

I was tickled pink when you popped up on my reader this weekend! You've got a lot of funny in you and I hope you're up to sharing again. I've loved reading you since Mom-o-Matic linked back to you way back when.
