Life Goes On....

Oh my goodness! My friends who I don't get to see too often (you know who you are) will sometimes check in with me when they see that I have not posted in a few days. I try to post often, but life has been busy! And.... life has been good!

So, I'm still here....

I've been thinking lately that I really need to take a food photography class. I just can't seem to get good photos. Most of my work looks like 1970's food photography. :D  See here.

I want to show you what my son ate last week. Whole Foods had a sale on scallops. Oh. My. God. So yummy.


If you can't see, this dish contains scallops, tomatoes, asparagus, red peppers, red onions, garlic, fresh basil and chicken broth. It's placed on a bed pasta and topped with Parmesan cheese. Incredible. Seriously. (And fast and super duper easy to make!)

I'm trying to update this blog, but to be honest, I'm so busy it's not even funny! My home doesn't even get a chance to be used because I'm rarely there. Yet, it gets messy! How can that be? And by the time I slide in the door at night, I hobble right into bed. Mornings? I'd prefer to stay asleep. I've been so tired lately.

I look forward to my weekends. Even then I cannot seem to get everything done that I need to.

This is just getting ridiculous. I haven't had any time for me lately! I do much better when I start my day with coffee sitting down and reading my daily readers. Next week, that is my goal! I even have a new chair. You'll see.

And as far as my happiness is concerned, I've been on top of the world. Again. And then of course, feeling all confident and such, I invited trouble. Because really, how important is it to stay happy? Before you comment, please know I'm being sarcastic! So 11 days after my last crash and burn, I decide to invite Matt into our lives again. One more time I was knocked down. Oh lordie, when will I ever learn? :) At least this time I got angry and not all sad and sappy. And knew it's practically useless to question his response (or lack thereof — which was an answer in and of itself), because I know what his response would be. It's OK. I felt emotions in the past 12 hours from anger, to undeniable hurt and sadness, to letting go, to agony, to prayerful heartfelt pleas to the Almighty.

Actually, I give up. You know? I do! :) I have tried to do this all the right way, and finally, finally I just asked God to give me another man to think about (in a romantic way), at least for a while, so that I can just stop hoping, wishing and dreaming about the 2009 Matt. You know? I was half-serious. But I said it. I said that prayer. My prayers are almost ALWAYS answered. I just want to stop wanting my husband. At least for a while. You know?

I'm dying to be held, kissed and wanted. Not just by anyone. Just by someone I want. Are there any attractive men out there that can divert my attentions? :) I've decide to chuck the high road and go for what has worked in the past.

Well.... I can wish, can't I? I'm still married. I'm not planning on knowing anyone, if you know what I mean. I have a son.

I don't know what it is I want. I think that's my problem. I just want my want to go away, and it's taking a long time. And the want is not reciprocal.

So, there you go! :)

I promise, I will write soon. Just as soon as I clean out my fridge, clean off my counter tops, empty the garbage, do the laundry, clean out the litter box and pay my bills. Oh, and weed my garden. Oh, and put together my new outdoor chair. Can't wait to share.

See you soon!


  1. Oh man you sound like me-- busy, busy, busy! Can't wait to hear from you soon. I'm happy you're happy.
