I’m a survivor.

Whew. Forgive my lack of posting as of late. The sickness that took me the edge of myself has finally receded. I don’t know what kind of Yankee Bug that was, but good gracious. You Wisconsinians know how to grow ’em!

I have a great plan for all the things I need to tell you this week [including but not limited to] :

  • Lake Geneva
  • a pizza that burned my chest
  • the Chicago Fire soccer team
  • my column in a magazine (including a giveaway!)
  • rear-ending a family after they dropped off their eldest at college
  • dirty feet
  • some books that I must MUST tell you about
  • and how I almost moved into the house next door.

Life did not stop when my respiratory system was overrun with mucus-a-plenty. Nor did my ability to brainstorm what I would like to blog about [apparently].

Also. I worked on that list during church [forgive me].

I’m a little late telling you this, but oh, y’all. It is a FUN month at (in)courage. Free stuff like EVERY DAY. Crazy, but true. Cause it’s our birthday. One year. One year of pure writing bliss. I adore (in)courage. Click on this beautiful button to see more.

[Literally. I just typed “beautiful bottom.” Don’t click on anyone’s bottom. It’s not polite.]

Today is my official catch-up freelancy day. So I will be writing the articles I owe [cough.(in)courage.cough.], responding to my email inbox and bloggy email inbox which both overfloweth, and conducting meetings throughout my day at Frothy Monkey [obviously].

Two delightful birthdays occurred over the weekend : Ansley and Melanie. Both women have stepped into super important places in my life and I refuse to picture it without them. Send some birthday love if you have the time, bloggites.

Phew. Can you tell I’ve missed you? It’s like I just want to tell you everything in one breath. Your turn. Catch me up. Did you write an awesome post that I need to read? Did something awesome/sad/cool/noteworthy happen recently that I’m totally out of the loop on? Are you pregnant? Engaged? Going on a date? Making a new recipe?

Just tell me how you are. Cause I’m nosy like that.

    So glad your feeling better, hope your day of catching up goes great.

    Since we just chatted you know whats up with me. But I’m happy to report that I did manage to start blogging about Ethiopia. Two posts down,like 12 more to go. 🙂

    Hopefully one of them will work for the MC guest post.

    Talk to you soon and enjoy a coffee at the Frothy Monkey for me.

    Thanks for the birthday love, sweet friend. Wish we could go to Taco Garage and eat tacos bigger than our head to celebrate.

    Glad you’re feeling better!

    Well. We’re most likely moving to California. We’ll know for sure August 29.
