I used to write every day. The things I would type out would come from me like water out of a faucet – the words just pouring out onto the screen with such ease. I was funny and real and had so much to say about life and being a mom of many and a military wife.
Somewhere along my path the writing became more and more difficult. My faucet was clogged and no matter what I did I couldn’t seem to get it flowing again. All the writing-plumbers’ tried-and-true advice did not help me. I lost not only my ability to write but my will to try. Eventually I turned my back completely on my online journal of 16 years; this blog.

I think I’m ready to try again. So much has changed and there is so much to say. Not only has my family grown and changed, but the world seems to have become a foreign place.
For the last several months I have felt the words starting to come back. I have said things like, “I should blog about that” again and “that’s a story for the blog”; words I haven’t said in years.

I don’t know if I’ll be all that witty again. whether that part of me is gone for good or if practice will bring it back remains to be seen. I do know that my life is still pretty funny. My toddler cracks me up every single day in between bouts of driving me crazy. My husband and I are still reasonably goofy and my oldest daughter may be the funniest person I have ever met.
She’s married with 2 little girls of her own now if you can even believe it.

My oldest son is also married with a daughter and a second baby girl arriving in a couple of weeks.
And babies #3 and #4 are both engaged to be married in November and January.

I’ll have to tell you all about it.

One post at a time though.
Let’s not get carried away.
