The wheels on the bus go 'round and 'round...

Yes........I've been blogger-absent for a few months.  Okay.....more than a few.  It wasn't intended to be that way in the beginning, but after a little while, it DID become an intentional break.  And a good one. You see.....I've been on journey of inner reflection.

Last fall, right after my last blog post, I attended the SPD Symposium in Seattle.  While I didn't necessarily have an epiphany while there, I had some "ah-ha" moments.  Those moments started me down a path to asking who I am, and more importantly, what am I becoming?  Where do I want myself to be in 10 or 20 or 50 years?  Not career-wise, or financially.......but as an individual.

Through my daughter's SPD, I have become much more attuned to the inner being of all humans, and more importantly, to the inner workings of myself.  No........I haven't become a new-age nut.  But I'm more aware, through her, of how the outside world is capable of driving our emotions and reactions, and how we all need to be able to break that chain when the outside world is a negative force. 

So.....bottom line........I'm back.  For the most part, this is a news-y blog about my family and will continue to be.  But I'm growing up.  (About time, eh?)  I hope you also see a new maturity, a renewed sense of humor, and a Mom more at peace with the chaos that is my life at this stage.  Life is going to continue with or without me.  So I might as well ride the bus with a smile, right?

Welcome back, blog-readers.  :)
