It’s been over a Year!

Welcome Back bulldog

It’s been over a year since I logged in to my blog. It’s okay that no one realized – but I am alive!

I’ve been on on Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook – it’s even possible I accidentally liked something on Google+ but for some reason the blog became daunting. One week of no posts became a few weeks, which turned in to a few months and now here it is – the end of 2014.

Today as I sat down to do work I decided I need to make the decision to take down the blog – or regularly use it. So I logged in and had a few updates to do just to get started! I’m going to have to rework this layout eventually because I’m choosing (and stating it here so I don’t go back!) that I will blog at least 4 times a week in January 2015. I’d love it to be daily, but let’s be real here.

It’s been a year – I have plenty I can say that has changed since my last post – mainly I have a completely different career, it is 24/7 – I love it AND I’m married with two step-kids! Yet, so much has remained – I’m content most of the time, I have my squishy faced bulldog, Sarge (he was even with us when we got married!).

Wow world, this blog goes back to June 2006. I’ve deleted plenty in the past and I’m about to go update my About Me section. 😉 But here’s a re-welcome to my blog. Thanks for staying with me, or finding me for the first time. I’ll be posting an “update to my life” later today.
