I'm back!

No, I wasn't abducted by aliens and
no, I didn't fall in a hole somewhere
or got caught in the Bermuda triangle. 

I've been busy and sick
or sick and busy
or sick of being busy
or maybe all of the above. 
There's just been "shtuff" going on and this blog has most definitely been neglected but I'm back now (or at least until the next time life gets overwhelming).

We've been to ...
  • a car show in the "big city"
  • was down and out (literally) with the stomach flu for a week - I don't remember the last time that's happened, if ever.
  • decorated for Christmas
  • had all the kids home Thanksgiving weekend
  • sewed eight pair of pajama pants
  • baked Christmas cookies with the kids and grandkids - I haven't done that in years and it was so much fun!  I was smart though, I sent them home with the kids so I wasn't tempted.  There is nothing better than a frozen frosted sugar cookie - oh yeah, that's what I'm saying! 
  • celebrated our immediate family Christmas
  • babysat a bit
  • been involved in activities at church
  • and even slipped in some genetic testing -- huh? 
More on the genetics and some of these other activites in another post or two or three or four  :)

Just wanted to let you know that I'm alive and well and will be posting on some of this "shtuff" in the very near future.

Hope everyone's Christmas season is off to a wonderful start!


  1. Whew! I thought you landed in a vortex or black hole in space and got stuck there for eternity. Good to know THAT didn't happen... hee hee

    Glad you are back with us here in Bloggy Land.

  2. I noticed you comment on my blog and thought maybe you'd just gone into the 'witness protection program' or something. I'm sorry to hear you were sick and happy to see you've had such fun with your family. Curious about the genetic testing though. Wonder what that's about. Anyway, your porch looks gorgeous! Love the sled, the lights and all.
    Will be checking up on ya!

  3. Glad to see you back. Your porch is beautiful. Did you get a new door?

    Take care and have a great week!

  4. Well, we've missed you, but my, oh, my! It sounds like you've been up to some interesting hijinks --good fodder for future posts! :-)
    Your header is very nice. Your door is beautiful.

  5. Your entrance way is Beautiful!

    Happy Holidays.

  6. hope you feel better soon. My daughter, her hubby and 2 little boys had that stonach virus (flu).

  7. I've missed you and I love, love, love the door! Glad you're feeling better too. blessings, marlene
