Some Stuff On My Mind

I have been thinking about getting back into my blogging.  It's been ten years since I started and the blogging world I joined then is quite different now. So many of the wonderful bloggers I followed when I started this adventure are no longer gracing us with their wit and words.

My world has changed too.  When this started I was the mom of two young boys.  Now they are both in double digits and so much closer to independence.  Turbo is 16. He drives, has a girlfriend, and is going about this growing up thing pretty well. Bruiser is 11.  He's in fifth grade and doing quite well.  He is taking a martial arts class and really enjoying it.


Two years ago we got word from our work that we had to move to keep our jobs. So we moved.  Away from friends and family.  Away from our comfort zone.  Just away.  Now we live in a new town with a new house and hopefully new friends.  I have trouble making friends.  I am an introvert and just have trouble putting myself out there to meet people. I'm trying but it's very slow going.

The last two years have been a roller coaster and not really in a good way.  Nick has had health issues.  An ankle surgery, oral surgery to remove an impacted wisdom tooth, a neuropathy in his hand, allergy issues, the list goes on. 

For myself, I'm still dealing with occasional kidney stones, stress related stomach issues and just recently, I had a colonoscopy.  I had it done because my mother died of colon cancer four years ago.  She had a brother who also died of colon cancer.  They offered me the genetic test, but I decided that I just wanted to go straight to the colonoscopy.  It a good thing I did, they found and removed a rather large polyp that did, after testing, show as precancerous.  I get to go back in for another colonoscopy in three months. Fun times.  Oh and I am also dealing with pre-menopause heading to menopause.  Getting older sucks.
So that is just a little of what has been going on here.  There is so much more.  I think writing out some of this will be good for me.  I certainly don't have friends who drag me out of the house where we live now.  I working on it, but it's not easy.


  1. Wow... Your oldest is already 16?? Crazy how time flies!!
    The blogging landscape has definitely changed, I still plug along because I like looking back on posts and seeing where I was at that stage in life. Comments are few and far between, but I'm doing it more for myself at this point. And I still love to write, so there's that.
    Getting older sucks. I've been fairly lucky so far, but I have suddenly hit a stage where people I know in my age group are being diagnosed with cancer. It makes me so nervous. Good for you for being pro-active in that department.

  2. I am sooo with you on the menopause thing! UGH! It is such a struggle. I always thought people were crazy when they acted like over 50 your body starts going downhill but that is my experience.


I love to get comments! They make my heart go pitter-pat! Go on comment--I'll do my best to go give your blog some love too!
