i have been terribly, awfully, hopelessly remiss! i sent a ton of christmas/new year's letters with my blog address, driving friends and family to my blog and then i completely disappeared. silence. nothing.
my deepest apologies.
as you may know, through a fostering agency, we welcomed two little boys into our home last march. they promptly started pre-school/day care and the 3 of us (k-daddy excluded) started getting sick. since last march, i have been sick approximately every 3 weeks. in addition to being a new mom of 2 very high-spirited little boys, and all of the emotional ups and downs that go with fostering. i won't/can't go into detail about the boys and our/their situation - it is not mine to tell at this time. but my point is - i'm exhausted - physically, mentally and emotionally.
i have been sick approximately 3 times since christmas. my body is beaten - i am not eating or acting healthy in any way. i want to eat good, healthy food and i want to exercise. but i find myself so tired and heavy that all i can muster is the bare minimum. the only part of my body that has remained remotely in shape is my mid-abs from coughing. i'm not being a good wife, friend, housekeeper, blogger or mother. i don't have the energy to take action on my new year's resolutions. i'm just getting over being sick again, my man is sick now and i'm stuck. i just want to cry.
i have nothing to offer you right now, no words of wisdom, no pose instruction, no book reviews and no bad photos - only whining.
but here is my compromise - how about i commit to three times/week instead of daily. when i get the hang of that, i'll expand from there. i also commit to trying to take and include better pics.
i hope you and your family are well. feel free to post your whines here if you need to - i'll listen and even sympathize. sometimes, that's all it takes.
