I hear the underworld is a bit chilly this time of year

I feel a deep sense of shame that it has almost been a year since I updated this blog. I will be mature and take a deep breath and bravely admit - it was completely my sister's fault. If she hadn't talked me into joining facebook, I wouldn't have had two things to avoid updating.

Now that I have admitted that she is to blame, I will look for more reasons why it really was a good thing I have ignored my responsibilities as a blogger. Ask yourself, did you really want to hear about my completely ordinary life? While I admit, sitting at the computer would give me another reason to avoid cleaning my house. (And I am always looking for more of those) I don't really feel as though I have much to share in the way of "news". Maybe it is because I tend to think of "news" as something exciting or devastating. The most exciting thing to happen to me this week was finding out the commissary had cabbage back in stock when I had really been craving cole slaw. How depressing is that?

But, my dear friends and family, you asked for it. A few of you (who will not be named) have been bugging me (and by "bugging" I mean "mocking") and asking when I would get this blog going again. As touched as I am, I know better than to think you are waiting on pins and needles for the next chapter in the saga that is my existence. If I am wrong on this point, I feel very, very bad for you and you need more hobbies.

So! Welcome Back to us! We are planning a trip to Sutton Who on Saturday, and I will post photos then. Or not. I could just use this quick, sarcastic post as a way to banish my guilt and ignore this stupid thing for another year....
