AWOL - again

I know not what to say.   The side of my brain that helps me know what to blog about is AWOL.  Seriously, taking 9 days off from blogging messed me up.   I can tell you about my husband who, when my daughter and I were gone, worked so hard and the house was so clean when we got home.   That would probably be boring, though.   I can tell you that we went to the best little restaurant in town here and had breakfast and, because the woman in the booth next to us complained about her food, her waiter gave us her dessert (yes, breakfast dessert).   The food really was delicious, so I don't know what her problem was.  Anyway, that too would probably be boring (although free dessert always excites me!). 

I could tell you that Little Boy was gone when my husband picked us up from the airport.  He is now safely with his Arizona family.   That is way exciting to me, but probably not so much for you.  

So, I will send the MPs out to find that side of my brain that will allow me to write something interesting and hopefully dazzle you tomorrow with tales of . . . whatever.

  1. I'm happy for you that some of the stress in the form of a wee man has been removed from your life and I sincerely hope he finds happiness with his new family.

  2. 1) You are always interesting because I just like hearing from and about *you*

    2) Lots of changes... losses... shifting of realities... your dad, your family, little boy.... life changes in routines, thoughts, prioritizing etc. lots going on. It will settle.

    3) You can always catch up on reading :)

    4) One of my favorite books, online and free: How to Survive the loss of a Love. - Best book? Maybe not. Good one though.

    Sending vibes of peace your way.

  3. Those sounds like pretty great topics to me! Your husband is a keeper and glad that Little Boy has moved on. you must be very relieved! As for the lady next to you....was she elderly by any chance? My mom is constantly complaining about every single meal whenever we eat out, that the food is 'lousy', meanwhile i'm scarfing down my food wondering what the heck she's talking about. I think the elderly start losing their sense of taste.

    1. No, she wasn't elderly. And she was nice about it - - just didn't like the food. Man, I hope I never lose my sense of taste - I love food!!!

  6. Have your MPs keep an eye out for my missing ideas too, will you? I haven't gotten back in the regular posting groove since the A to Z challenge ended!

  7. Sometimes a lull after the storm is a GOOD thing.

  9. I am glad the little one did get to his home in Arizona. I hope it is all going well.

    I think you've been through a lot lately with your dad and its going to take a bit of time to get it all together and then it will never be the same. After my mom died, I couldn't even decide what to make for dinner for a few weeks, and I wasn't blogging at the time but it was just good enough to get up and go to work; I thought that was a good day just to get that done. Take a break, you'll feel those creative juices flowing a bit as things settle down and the raw grief moves on to the next stage, etc.

    take care of yourself!

  15. I loved this post and mainly because i so relate to it! I haven't blogged in more than 9 days and cannot seem to find clear thoughts to express any ideas! I may give it a shot today, but it does seem as I procrastinate writing that it's more difficult to get back in the groove. Good to see you back!
