I've decided not to let this place die a slow fizzle of a death. I plan on rejuvenating the ol' blog. Why?...because I like to write and this keeps things simple and neat. While I did stray over to that other place where people are crushed by candy and other weird phenomenon, this is where it all started. I find that I actually have documented some of my history here...when Linds said to me the other day, when was my last day of school I had to weed through old posts here to try to narrow it down. And I found it nostalgic, comforting and it just felt like home. And, it's like a journal where I can keep track of things and check in on myself. So this'll be at least a weekly thing (again). Not that anyone cares, is listening or will read, but because I'm no quitter. It feels like I've said this here before, but I mean it this time. I did forget my password and how to sign in, but have cracked the code. Here's what I've learned about passwords....once you hit fifty, you forget them just like they're car keys that you put down someplace when you walk in the door. It's hard to keep these things straight. We should be assigned assistants at 50. They could flip our pillow over to the cool side, tie our runners should we ever decide to use them (in which case we'll properly refer to them as walkers). They could keep track of our car keys and passwords, make sure our skirt isn't tucked into our pantyhose and that we put both earrings on. Although, I recently lost a favourite earring but that hasn't stopped me from wearing the lone soldier. I lie. I tell people "oh, I must've forgotten to put the other one on when I left the house". Such bullshit. After 3 times, they're onto it. Then, I blame it on wine. I actually lost my Shoppers card when I really needed it the other day (for a promotion that required it). Searched everywhere for days. Then, inadvertently stumbled across it yesterday when I wasn't even looking anymore. (Funny how that goes). Put it on the table, with the coupon/promotional flyer. Picked it up today to go out the door and got called away/distracted. Lost it again. Rinse/repeat cycle. (Quit looking and swearing, moved some clothes that Linds had flung around in her packing fury and found it underneath them). I quit...this game isn't even FUN. I am a little lazy today...with my football team out of the picture and my hockey team not playing until tomorrow, today was named nothing to do day. So I ran with it. Linds is in Squamish, twirling fire and being cool. I so miss her when she is away. Ty is here, waiting for Fiona who we also miss when she's away. We'll go to our favourite little burger joint tonight for chicken pesto deliciousness. Fiona will go meatless, as is her life. That's about it for now. Next post will be about bunnies. Love you all. All none of you. xo

I was so thrilled to see your blog climb to the top of my blog roll thingy, indicating that you had a new post! I knew you couldn't stay away forever. Actually, I didn't, but that's another thing that happens after 50 - you can claim you knew it all along.

Keep writing, my friend!
