helllllloooooo...anybody out there?


Hello my long lost bloggy friends (wait...I guess I was the one who was lost ;)

I had become a blog reader...but not a blog writer for quite a while.



Life is good. I am now working full-time and am trying to come up with a balance with all of my activities.

I am not complaining! That is for certain. I see so many of my friends and family who are struggling to make ends meet.

Thankful that I am working as well as Firehubby. Not taking it for granted!



The kiddos are pretty good.

We have been running them around to their many activities. I am so happy to put the miles on the car in order to keep them focused on a positive path! They are 12 and 13, coming into those vulnerable years.



Firehubby had his blog taken over by some drug ad... here is his new blog "The Damage is Done":

Oh, and last but not least...we were thrilled to announce that we celebrated our 17th Groundhog's day together.

As the saying goes..."Groundhog's Day is for Lovers".


My sweetheart spoiled me with a box of my favorite candies...yummy chocolate covered cherries.


How did you celebrate?

So good to hear from you! Glad everything is going so well for you and your family. Congrats on going full-time at work. I have been doing that for the last 3 weeks which is unusual for subbing, but it is also an unusual situation. Anyways, thanks for checking in!

Great to have you back.

Hmmmmm, I am thinking Groundhog's day is a little more memorable for you than for me. :) So happy to see a post from you. Sounds like you are keeping yourself and the kids busy. Busy kids are happy kids that can't get into too much trouble!!

So glad to hear that all is well. I did not celebrate groundhog day in any special way.

Hi, Julie! I realized the other day that I haven't posted one blog yet this year. I too have been more of a reader.

Hopefully, we can get together for that coffee soon. Glad to see you're doing well :)

I never heard of someone celebrating Ground Hogs Day. Hmmm. Sounds pretty cool!

I started a new blog, in place of my old one: http://lifecftransition.blogspot.com/

Welcome back. I thought the drug companies had stalked you two and kidnapped you.

Yeah! Glad you're back! I missed both of you.
