I'm Still Breathing!!!!

Yes, believe it or not, I'm still alive and kicking.

This has been one crazy year and I must really try to make an effort to continue my blog....why? Because I love writing.

So what in the world could have kept me from blogging? Well......hmmmm....what a loaded question.

First off, I was an idiot and agreed to be the PTA president of my daughters elementary school....yes, they saw the "Sucker" sign on my forehead and said "Ask her!!!" So, now my house is in shambles, laundry piled up to the sky and kids are barely eating what I would deam a "healthy" meal. I have emails from parents regarding anything and everything, fundraiser baskets and decorations spewed throughout my house and a monstrous size bottle of Pepcid next to my bed ....and, if that wasn't enough, I agreed to help head the Ad journal/playbill for my daughter's highschool, I'm on the Picnic committee that welcomes over 300+ children to our school, I will be helping a local Investment company with idea generation, I was asked to help play/sing in a cover band and I finally decided to take the plunge and start my journey to a new career as a web developer, while maintaining my pharmacy degree!


Yes.....stupid is as stupid does....or as my husband said the other day....Mid-Life Crisis!

Is there anyone out there who is in the same boat? What have you been up to?


  1. Oh my goodness, Julie.. I get a little more exhausted just from reading and imagining all this. I know why I'm not involved in any PTA activities at the girls' kindergarden. Just can't do it. Please take care of yourself and don't burn out!

    1. Hello Stephanie!! I'm definitely feeling's been absolutely insane and I just can't find a break. I can't wait for the summer.... :) Hope you are well!

  2. Ow. Just reading that tired me out. Are you aiming for some kind of record? Greates Superwoman Ever?? ;)

    Oh, but it is SO GOOD to see you back on my dash. I was starting to get worried. Even sent you a message via the blog's FB page, on new year's day.

    Ooh, plenty happened. I had a major bout of writer's block - courtesy some very hurtful comments by my friend - survived it, patched up with her... 2013 was a generally crappy year, and 2014 doesn't look promising. Last year in school, major exams - I'm a ticking time-bomb!

    Small consolation: my birthday's this Sunday :)

    Anyway, welcome back *hugs* How are your kids?

    1. It's so nice to see your comments again! I always enjoy our little chats....first off, Happy Birthday!!!! I wish you a very happy year....This will be better than last year.

      It's funny how you had a little "friend" issue as I did too with my best friend of 14's crazy how a little misunderstanding can really hurt someone you care for - but I'm happy to say we are back together and our friendship is that much stronger.

      hugs back! The kiddies are doing great! I also hope your thoughts are flowing and that your pen never runs dry....or keyboard battery never dies! lol

  3. good deed goes unpunished. But you already know that! Take time to breathe.

    1. Rich - Thank you....and you are so right. I know that and yet I can't keep my hand down when they ask for help. I hope you are well.
