All quiet on the Eastern front.

Haven’t had anything to really blog about.  Life feels nearly “normal” right now. Working on taxes, enjoying some nice weather (even hung out laundry for the first time this season – really.. it’s the little things) .   And in typical Maine fashion the day after it was nice enough to hang laundry it snowed!   The ground is once again white but in March that’s what’s known as sugar snow. The sap will really start to flow now.  We enjoyed a night out with friends over the weekend and spent some time with our girls on Sunday.  Last night I had a glass of wine  and watched the drama on American Idol (total guilty pleasure.. AI and the Voice!)  Though I haven’t had much to say I have continued to check in a few times a day and read. Some of the blogs have brought a smile, some have been informational and one nearly broke my heart.  It’s funny how fast I have become attached to a group of ladies I will probably never meet and I wouldn’t dream of not checking in regularly to see what they are up to, how their latest tests have come out and what’s next for them.   I guess it shouldn’t surprise me… I have forged other cyber friendships over the years…  but it always does.  Keep blogging ladies.  Even if I don’t always comment I’m listening.

    So true on all fronts! The bonds we make with those we meet in cyberspace who have touched our hearts and our lives are deep and glorious friendships–despite never coming face to face. And it sounds to me as if you had quite a lot to blog about…sounds like you’ve had a beautiful week or two just enjoying life! So glad to hear that you are feeling “almost normal.” 🙂

    It sounds like you’re doing well and living life. I think we all need a little more of that – positive time with family, doing little things that bring you comfort.

    So really is to be found in appreciation of those little things. What a delightful post to read today 🙂

    Nearly normal is good stuff. Enjoy it!

    Someday you’ll find a ‘new normal’ and be happy with that…it’s all evolutional! I’m glad you’re feeling normal and doing the simple things that make you happy! Be happy everyday! 🙂 ❤

    I learned so much reading other poeple blogs that it amazes me. My new normal is doing about 75% percent (I was a REAL doer, can’t sit still) less than I used to and being ok with it. My friends say I still do too much. I love the normal stuff, well except vacuuming up dog hair and cleaning up cat vomit.

    Happy Day, Simone

      Hi Simone. I have a note from my doctor stating someone else has to handle the vomit and hair 😉

    I am a huge idol fan too. Sigh. That and Criminal Minds. 🙂
    I love the punk rocker ( cant remember his name). And my favorite got voted off last night, Shannon.. pfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffft. Too inexperienced, but I still hate it.
