I am still here. I still post sporadically. But lately my heart's not in it. I thought it would be briefer than it has been, but I just can't bring myself to blog much.

In part it is because there is nothing exciting to write about. Things are so blah. My family, my husband and kids, as well as myself, have been sick on and off since December. It seems like every week someone gets something new. Last week Isabel had strep (her second time since December). This week, Gabriel has bronchitis and Paula has an upper respiratory infection. I seem to have caught it as well. The biggest development is that I have just been diagnosed as diabetic. Nice, huh? On the plus side, since Monday I have been eating more responsibly (cutting down on excess processed carbs and sugars, eating more vegetables, watching portions) and keeping an online log of what I eat, and in four days I have lost four lbs. I have such a long way to go, but it gives me hope that I am on the right track.


  1. Sorry you all have been so sick -- and sorry to hear about the possible diabetes. I'm sitting here writing this with a feverish kid in bed next to me. This winter sucks!
