I cannot begin to tell you how much I hate Google and all things related to Google, and yet I'd be lost without the Google search bar.
I don't have the computer knowledge to even begin to explain what happened,
or what I think happened.
Suffice it to say, for the last couple of months, I thought I'd lost my blog.
Every photo, every bit of drivel, every.thing.
Since this has been more of an online diary rather than a 'blog', I was a bit heartbroken.
I love going back and reading about my adventures with the BoyChild.
All I remember is opening a Gmail account for the marshmallows - and it apparently took over my computer, and truly, that's all I know.
Blood, sweat and tears my friends.
I'm sure you thought I was gone, but for good.
Up from the grave I arose!
As usual - there's always something going on up in here.
A few of the highlights - I've turned 53.
I can't think of anything clever to go with 53 as I did with fifty-one-derful, and fifty-two-
good to be true.
So far, I have to admit - it may be one of the best years yet.
Many reasons...not limited to -
I'm really enjoying my new business venture!
I've added homemade graham crackers to the mix, and ridiculous s'mores.
I'm really loving having something new to throw myself into.
I've just come to the realization that I really do have to have 'something' going in order to be happy, and there's not a thing wrong with that.
I've got shows nearly every weekend for the rest of the year!
I can't get over the reception it's all had.
I've got my Etsy site up and running too, and a Facebook page.
Another reason it's been such a happy time - we've got snow!
If it's gonna be January, let's have it then.
I'm about to make a statement that I hope doesn't come back to bite me.
I am about the happiest I've been since Aaron grew up.
I really think I'm through the empty nest.
I've started a weight loss/wellness group here at my home every Monday morning.
I have the marshmallows.
Everyone I love is happy and healthy.
Aaron is grown.
He's in a relationship, for a year now!
He's working in Chicago, loving every minute of it.
He's bought himself a bright shiny new Volkswagen.
I feel like we now have an adult relationship -
that I survived that awkward stage of not quite letting him go.
He treated me to a fabulous restaurant for my birthday - spent a fortune.
It was SO hard to see him spending his money - so hard - I just hugged him and said 'oh honey - you just spent a fortune on me' to which he replied 'well Marmie, you've given up a fortune to raise me'.
He's such a great kid.
I just feel like things are really good right now - and I'm so incredibly grateful for it!
