Tap, Tap, Tap... this thing still on?

Yes? Good.

So much for good intentions for posting every day, huh? I think I'll call January a loss and try again in February. NaBloPoMo has a neat theme for February: "want." So maybe I'll be able to explore that.

January has been one of those months that has been so up and down, I'm still trying to process it all. I think one of the reasons I've had "blog block" is that I wanted to do a post to honor my friend Dinah, who passed away this month, and it's been hard. How do you sum up almost 40 years of friendship in a meaningful way?

I've also been sick. Really truly awfully sick, to the point that I wasn't well enough to make the trek to Vegas for "the" baby shower last weekend. More about that later. The up side to it all is that I have finally recovered and it was truly amazing on Monday to find that I actually feel "good" as opposed to just dragging myself around. It's quite amazing!

Today is #1 Grandson's 21st birthday. Just in case I wasn't feeling "elderly" enough with a great-grandchild on the way, now I have a grandson who's "legal."

So, okay. I'm back to blogging. Let's hope I can keep it up! I've got a couple of pieces of unfinished "blog business" that I'll try to catch up on the next couple of days, and then we'll see what happens with "want"ing to do better!
