So ... Where Have I Been?

This space has been so random for so long. Truth be told? I almost deleted it. Wiped it clean and considered starting over somewhere new. But when it came down to it, I couldn't.

I love this space.

It's been mine for many years now, and taken me through so much. Lucas's early life is all here. Max's, not to much. That's my fault, and well, motherhood really. Then we moved, and I just sort of lost control of my life.

I had grand plans of sharing all of our adventures here in Germany (yes, we are still here), but things just didn't go the way I expected them to. Staying at home with two CRAZY, crazy boys is a lot. My husband travels way too much for work, and I sort of found myself in this place where I wasn't really moving. Same things, every day ... over, and over, and over again. Everything I loved sort of fell to the wayside, and I figured out how to much make it through the day.

But I recently decided that enough was enough. It was time to take my life back, as much as I could. Do things that *I* love again, and that includes writing. I did a very poor job these last two years of making time for myself. So enough is enough.

Writing is one of the things I have missed the most. I have always enjoyed it, and for many years, writing here, or my last blog, was cathartic for me. A way to just feel at ease with my life, and spend some time with my thoughts. I look forward to doing that again.

There won't be anything fancy or crazy here. Mostly just me writing. I recently started the Keto Diet, and am loving how easy it is (I should have done this so long ago!) so perhaps some food recipes and such. Pictures of the boys for sure. But mostly me, taking my life back.

Thanks for sticking around, those of you who have. I'm glad to be back.

Work in Progress

I don't even know if anybody is still around, but .... I miss writing.

More to come, my friends, but I am in the process of making some changes, and working on writing again. If you have stuck around, are still following, and still checking in, I appreciate you.

Ignore the mess for now, while I adjust and fix some aspects. I should be up and running by next week.
