Hasta Luego!

After much consideration (and procrastination), I am finally outta here! Not forever, but for a while. I may - because I lack self-control - be checking in, but if anyone asks, I'm not here!

The plan is to return in the fall. That should give me a few months to deal with the news of our son's illness and rearrange our lives accordingly. Plus, the best months of the year are upon us - time to play!

In the meantime, there's still lots of great content here to explore:

In need of a giggle or a guffaw?
Well, I Never!
You're Not a Duck!
His and Hers
How to Achieve a State of Deep Relaxation... in 2.5 Minutes or Less
The Inevitability of Change and the Futility of Resistence

Or something to make you go 'Hmmm' or 'Awwwww'?
Remembering 'G'
My Heart Belongs to You Little One
I Choose Community not Competition
Ten Things Quotable
Not My Mother's Daughter

Looking for a little parenting advice?
Ten Tips for New Moms
Quiet Time: A Welcome Daily Ritual
Is Competition Good for our Children?
Are Parents More or Less Involved in Their Kids' Lives These Days? Is This Good or Bad?
Do You Take Time for Yourself Each Day?

Or perhaps some help in the kitchen would be nice!
Eat a Rainbow!
Lunch Should be a Four Letter Word
Drink Your Greens
Peanut Butter & Pretzel Truffles
Honey, Is There Anymore Cake?
Cheddar Cheese Potage
(Stay tuned upon my return for some delicious and healthy allergy-free recipes!)

  1. Sue, Please take good care of yourself and Jack! We will miss you, and look forward to your return! (((hugs)))


  2. take care Sue! hasta luego!

  3. Take care and enjoy the spring/summer. The crocuses and buffalo bean are blooming so spring is well under way. Hopefully the summer weather will return soon (as I look at the snowstorm outside - so much for a cookout/campout tonight). Now it's time for me to get off the computer as we are still observing Screen-Free week (communication and work are allowed).

  4. We will miss you--but will be here when you get back!

  5. We will absolutely miss you. Can't wait to here how these next few months go when you return. You better return!

  6. I hope you have a wonderful summer, and I really hope your son is feeling better soon!!

  7. I know you will be very busy with your family! Thinking of you my friend xo

  8. You will be missed.

    Enjoy your hiatus and good luck with your son, I hope everything is okay.

    Much love to you and your family.
