Hello out there in WordPress land!

So, it’s been a hectic few weeks, and I’ll tell ya all about it, but first – today is the two month anniversary of my husband and I quitting smoking!  Two months since we quit, and no cigarettes, no cheating…nothing!  We’ve done something that we haven’t done before!  I’m still coughing crap up, but it’s like my hubby says, I smoked for over half my life – fifteen years – that’s a long time for my lungs to recover from.  I do feel better.

Having a blue day…

So as I sit here at the house, trying to write, trying to focus on something, I realize that I’m having a blue day.  I’m not depressed – I’ve been there and I recognize what that feels like – just a little blue.  Maybe it’s the weather – a little gray, cool again, and a dreary Saturday, though it’s only our Thursday.  I’m just a little melancholy.  I miss my friends, I miss my family.

And, back to work!

Okay, so maybe not work for me.  Had a great weekend with the hubs.  My grandmother sent us $1000 to help our move!  And hubs got paid.  It didn’t go as far as it will since we’ve had to recover from the last few months of only paying enough of our bills to get by.  But they are all paid!  And we got to go grocery shopping!  Ah!  We got to buy everything that we needed instead of just enough not to starve.

My New Article Is Up!

So, it didn’t qualify for an upfront payment (which is what I’m assuming is what took them nearly a week for!), but they finally let me know so I could just submit it.  And now it’s available for your eyeballs to view it. ^__^  You can find my article here, and of course on my articles page.  It’s a good start and I’m already working on the second article in the series.

When will it be me?

So, those out there who have children, before you had children, did you have one of these moments?  I’m cruising through the “Tag Surfer” on my WordPress dashboard, and I see a picture that’s obviously a woman with a child in her lap, and she’s smiling.  And I nearly started crying.  I’m ready for that to be me.

Happy Beltane!

Happy Beltane!  May your day be beautiful, your lands and life be fertile, and your summer bountiful!  It’s a beautiful day here today.  I took my husband to work and driving on S Lake Shore, with the windows down, sunroof open, and oldies station (all 60s weekend, woot!) blaring was invigorating.  We’ll be doing a ritual tonight (which we always try to do at least Beltane and Samhain, usually Yule and the summer solstice), but for the first time we’ll be doing a fertility ritual.
