Sometimes We All Just Need To Take it Down a Notch

As I am sure that many of you have noticed, the past few weeks I have been absent from my blog.  To be honest, I haven’t had much to say.  After a series of events, I realized that I couldn’t do it all.  I simply needed to shut it down, rest, and repair the body that I have pushed so hard since I gave birth to my daughter.  I actually happened to come down with something so bad that I ended up working from home on the couch for almost a week (while my husband graciously stepped into the role of super dad).

I certainly don’t want anyone to worry about me or feel sorry for me, but I do want to thank all of the amazing friends (really family) that have reached out to make sure that we are alright.  Due to my inability to work my normal schedule, I did have to reach out some people for help.

  • Chex cereal
  • Butterscotch Chips
  • Chocolate Chips
  • M&Ms
  • Bagel Chips
  • Pretzels
  • Oatmeal Squares (Wow! What a great addition)
