4 Years Later...

Amazing how you set something aside, intending to get back to it, and you do! 40-ish months or so later...

First, an update:

When I scan back over the length of this blog, and scan I do... I don't recognize that girl and so many of those moments anymore. It is sometimes like the earth opened up and swallowed 5 years of memories, or I was simply more numb than I realized.

James is a high school senior, and to keep this from sounding too much like that Christmas letter you get from your cousin and never really read because she drives you nuts with her overachieving, that's all I'm going to say about that. Also, he would murder me if I wrote about him here.

Nicole lives in Florida, works at Universal Studios and is ... finally... I think... happy.

We said goodbye to Jessie in the summer of 2014. I was not ready to let her go, but then, I never would have been. She picked a time when I was not home and drifted away. It was just as hard as I expected it to be.

The reason I don't spend as much -- okay, okay any -- time here is because I began writing for a living. No, don't go getting all excited. I write the boring stuff that entices you to buy something at Staples or book a trip on Orbitz. It's a decent living and lets me keep a flexible schedule. I will focus a bit of this blog on the irritations of being a freelancer because there are many, and I will also address the positives that come with it. I used to get paid to tell you that... but more about that later.

It's good to be back.

Cool to see you here! I don't have any kind of reader, so just happened to pop on by. Can't believe your baby is graduating from High School now. Mine is finishing her second year of college. I'm glad that you're well.

Hi everyone,I’m so excited my husband is back after he left me for another woman. My husband was having an affair with a co-worker and i love my husband so much but he was cheating on me with his co-worker and this girl i think she use witchcraft or black magic on my husband to make him hate me and this was so critical and uncalled-for, I cry all day and night for God to send me a helper to bring back my husband! I was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr.Wealthy can help get ex-boyfriend back fast. So, I felt I should give him a try.
