But then I wasn't.
Because April/May is hell. I mean, the good kind of hell.
A brief synopsis of April/May would include two weekend skating competitions that required lots of driving, hotels, and hand-holding a highly-combustible teen girl athlete, three orchestra concerts, a Girl Scout bridging ceremony, three field trips (one which included a 2 1/2 mile hike up the sheer face of a mountain), three class parties, three track and field days, a skating recital, a soccer tournament, and an exploding toilet.
The exploding toilet was unplanned, which made it all that much more fun.
|And so it went on, 2000 feet high within a two-mile walk....|
I also went to a Twitter party.
Which sounds really lame, but look at this:

Actually, it means I follow the dream nutritional plan of a Kindergartner.
Another thing keeping me busy and away from my blog is - ironically - writing.
I wrote something for the Patriot News.
That's a real newspaper. In print. Which means I can now officially call myself a Writer, since most people still think bloggers are like scrapbookers or first grade teachers: cute hobby, no talent or seriously hard work necessary. And to be honest, sure, there are some bloggers out there who use the Internet as nothing more than a public Post-it note or to publish their blank verse poetry, for crying out loud. Giving a bad name to those of us who treasure a well-placed semicolon or an artful sentence fragment.
And I was being sarcastic with the first grade teacher quip. You know...funny political. Since most people think being a teacher is so flippin' easy. Bygones.
Anyway, I've been writing other places, as well. Lookee here!
I wrote about The Great Gatsby trailer. Which was awesome.
And I interviewed my eldest child about the Minecraft video/computer game:
|Teenagers. No comment.|
And then I got political again and wrote about breastfeeding, providing safe births for women around the world, playing sports while wearing a hijab, and prom dresses.
Also, a ton of other stuff.
So, so busy.
Being a writer.
And chasing my kids
But I promise, I have't forgotten my blog.
Just my mind.
