In "Who Gives a Shit" news....

So. Hi. How ya doin'? Been a while since you and I pulled up a chair, isn't it? Want some coffee?

I suppose I do owe you an explanation.

It all started a year ago when Mr. Chaos was offered a fantastic job less than 2 hours from where I grew up. We didn't hesitate and packed all our stuff to move to the Frozen Tundra. We stayed with my parents (thanks, guys) and they have painfully slow dialup. Like 16K on a good day, y'all. Swear. So I was offline for six weeks while we house hunted and finalized our move.

In retrospect I should have posted a "See ya, I'm going away and won't be back for a while" post, but I didn't. Mainly because like Kevin talks about here, I, too scoffed at those "Goodbye Cruel World" posts. It is frowned upon in the message board strata of the nets, so I figured Emily Post would say the protocol was the same for blogging.

And when I came back, y'all deleted me. Even those of you who knew why I was gone. Realistically I know it was because I hadn't posted. Who wants to link stale material on their blogs? Not me, no siree. Gotta get my blog fix every other day, or every three days at the outset.

But am I ever realistic? Getouttahere! Soon that tiny voice that I try not to listen to started to get louder. "You are one of THOSE blogs. You know. One of those blogs that thinks it's inherently funny and witty and insightful, but is really boring as hell. It's self-aggrandizing bullshit! Who the hell wants to read your stuff? Loser! You are totally fooling yourself!" So I slunk off with hurt feelings and hid away like Gollum, certain no one in Blogworld would miss me.

Lately a few very kind souls have been encouraging me to write again, so here I am. Let me 'splain where I've been. No, there is too much, let me sum up. We moved to the Great White North, aka Frozen Tundra, aka Place of my Birth. Cman started kindergarten and is doing amazingly well. LMD is in preschool and loves it with a passion. Youngling is now walking and getting into all sorts of mischief.

As for me, I am in a much different place than I was a year ago. Is that good or bad? Well, I guess that's for you to decide. I do know that I am a lot more accepting of myself and where I am as a mom. Before my posts were cloaked in humor to hide my fear that I was fucking my kids up irreparably. I am in a much happier place physically and mentally. And yes, we are rapidly backsliding into that BS I discussed earlier, so I'll stop.

Anyway, how have you been? Today's assignment is to give me an update on you. Go.

I think you are probably well enough updated on me, but I am glad to see you are back.

Good job!

HA! I laughed out loud at your Princess Bride quote. Love that movie. Hon...all blogging self aggrandizing bullshit. It's just that some is funnier and more interesting than others. Yours is one of those. I'm glad you're back.

I'm linking you now.

BA, that's one of my favorite Princess Bride quotes. Almost anything Inigo says is.

Have you seen the Crestor commercials Mandy Patinkin is now doing? I always repeat everything he says in Inigo's voice. Cracks me up.

You know where I am, no need to bore you with the where I've been and how I'm doing.

I didn't really 'know' you when you stopped blogging, wasn't even in to blogs in the least, BUT - I do know you now, and I am in to blogs, and I am thrilled that you are blogging again.

(sixgreenzebras - for some reason your blog thinks I don't exist...)
