Hi there.

So I've been a complete failure at blogging for the past 2 months. I know this. I feel shame. This is me walking with sadness and forlornery in my heart when I think about you and how I've let you down.

I've gotten some really nice comments and emails from you guys wondering what's going on. Let me answer some of your questions.

A: I'm at my house in stretchy pants and a black cotton shirt that more or less hides the boob stains. More specifically, I'm probably in my kitchen unloading the dishwasher, or doing a crappy job keeping my house clean, or spraying Febreze on the carpet where the geriatric cat has had his most recent accident or possibly staying up late watching Kahn Academy videos so that I can help my oldest child with her math homework.

Last week I went to Florida with my family so that we could spend time together. We did this because my husband is very selfishly traveling all the time for work. So we REALLY needed to have so much family time that we all got kind of sick of each other and the kids would be like "YAY!!! Can I please go back to school now so I can get away from you, mommy?"

So all 5 of us stayed in one small hotel room for a week and it worked like a charm. We had tons of fun, we occasionally snipped at each other, somebody puked, somebody peed in a place that was not in the potty and somebody snored like a warthog and kept us all awake every night. Then we got home, Cap'n Coupon left almost immediately on another trip, and we had two snow days in a row. YAY!

A: Thank you so much. I heart you for caring about me. I'm totally fine, really. There's nothing to worry about. I'm just spending more time being a mom and less time writing about it. I kind of have to. I'm on my own with my kids a lot and they need my attention. Also, they're getting older and I'm struggling with how much I should be sharing about them moving forward.

Oh! Another thing - I got asked to do some outside writing assignments and it was HARD to get them done and write for Babble and write stuff for here. So I quit Babble. December was my last month. Hopefully it will free me up to do more stuff here.

Also, I have a little bit of writer's block. Because I have no time and then when I get some I'm like: La la la Facebook! La LA LA la Buzzfeed! La la la youtube videos of Tim Hiddleston dancing for me.  No, you guys. Seriously. Look at Loki dance. He's precious and adorable and I think he needs me to make him some peirogies.

Right. I KNOW. Skills. 

So 30 minutes later, I've watched 10 videos of him dancing and then my kids start screaming and my window for blogging has closed and I'm like well, crap. And here's the other thing: once I get out of the habit of writing all the time, it's hard for me to back into it. So I'm dealing with that too.

A: I know. I'm sorry. I should have said something. I should have been like - I'm kind of caught up in my real life and I suck and I'll be checking in with you via Facebook and Twitter and I swear once I get it together, I'll start writing more. Will you guys please forgive me?
