Oatmeal on the Ceiling

... the name of my new ultra-hipster folk & kazoo band.

I kid. Although now that I'm thinking about it, does that not sound furcking AMAZING?!

I've been out of the blogging game for a lonnnnnng time and I don't really know how to jump back in. Do I make a list? A slideshow? Do I just share my Instagram feed? There's no handbook for this.

We moved, bought a business, completed our first year of homeschool and are working on the second, got a new dog, bought a house, and thankfully (THANKFULLY) have not had ANY MORE KIDS. I've gotten on and off and on medication, taken up running, said "haha fuck that", gained weight, gained more weight, lost someone, made friends, fallen in love with brie, re-started and ended therapy, been diagnosed with early endometriosis, OCD, and a "severe anxiety disorder", signed up for yoga (wut), went to a GYM (wutWUT) and our most recent adventure involved a near-death experience and a total knee reconstruction for Grover. Like, they had to use dead people parts to put him back together. (YAY SCIENCE!)

We're doing GREAT, y'all.

I can't help but think back to the beginning of all this, when I had these huge dreams of getting SUPER DUPER internet famous for spray painting bamboo skewers and arranging flowers and crocheting scarve and having thousand$ upon thousand$ of readers and I'm just like THANK WHOEVER IS IN CHARGE OF THAT that THAT DIDN'T HAPPEN. (THAT was a fun sentence.)

I don't do things like this for other people anymore. Hanging out with the Grim Reaper changes shit.

Writing here has always been incredibly cathartic, though, especially when I took my various nose dives into the upside down. So I might keep up with it, I might not, but I thought I'd pop in to say "hi" to anyone who's been here looking through the PPD posts or the crochet patterns or whatever other incredible weirdness they find lurking in the shadows (BOO). I'M STILL BREATHING, BABY!

And yeah ... also procrastinating scrubbing oatmeal off a ceiling. #winwin

P.S. A LOT of my image links are broken; please bear with me on that. It's on the list. For now, just use your imagination.

Pin It!
