Hello…It’s Me


Is it still there?  Like, does it expire?


How long did I pay for this thing to keep running?  Would anyone still care to read?  But, is blogging still even a thing???


These were my first thoughts as I typed in my web address to see if this site was as dead as I thought it would be.

To my shock and awe, it’s still here.  Just sitting here where I left it.

It has been 1 year, 3 months, and 19 days since I have written a blog.  So much life has happened since then that I don’t even know where to start.


Do I talk about moving…yet again?  Do I write about another school year?  Do I even still want to write?


I don’t really know the answers to all of these questions, but I do know that I want to start fresh.

I don’t want this to be a place for me to rant and rave about my weight issues (although that still may happen- sometimes).  While my weight issues are a large part of me (not pun intended haha), I don’t want them to define me.  I want to talk about things that YOU want to read about.  I also want to use writing as a tool for others to see Christ in every arena of life- because He IS in every arena of life…duh.


So I’m giving you a little homework- TELL ME WHAT YOU WANT!


Do you want embarrassing/funny stories of me and my kids? …I have a ton.

Do you want a chronicle of our latest move?  I’ve got that WITH pics!

Do you want to hear all about my latest diet adventure?..eh, I’ll think about it.

Do you want a devotional-style sharing?  I can do it!


I am just really seeking out some direction here.  I feel like God’s not done with this little blog of mine.  Heck, I’m gonna let it shine *cue music* let it shine! Let it shine! Let it shine!


Drop me some comments on what you’d like to read about, and I will be praying for more direction from The Big Guy.


Guess who’s back?



[Slim] Shady’s back!  Tell a friend!

(we’re still working on the “Slim” part)
