Back 2 Blogging In 2011!

Posted by Lisa E.  |  at   10:12 AM No comments

Hello out there in cyber-land! It's been 10 months since I've blogged here! Ay, Ay, Ay!
I am so sorry about that. (not sure anyone is even aware of my blog, but I'm going to try to continue with it this year and hope 'someone' is interested).

I'm not going to try to recount the happenings in my life from 2010. Too much to rehash, a lot of it not good or exciting stuff. Instead, I will press forward and tell you about 2011 thus far.

Let's start with last night, shall we. I took down the Christmas tree yesterday, re-arranged the living room and put some of the Christmas decor up in the attic. So what happens last night? After I give the kids a bath and while Jay is taking a shower, I go in the basement and there is water all over the laundry room and in the back storage area. The hot water heater burst! Yeah.

Christmas night we had water over half the laundry room because we had roots in our lateral line. In the past we've had issues (flooding in the basement because of hurricanes, laundry hose on the loose, etc.) but never two incidents this close together. Is God testing our patience or what? We will survive. I am very thankful hubby has a friend who is a plumber and came over to help and will be back tomorrow morning. Guess who doesn't get to take a shower until this is all fixed? Me of course ;-)

Jay and his plumber friend are buying the new water heater as I type this. I cannot wait to take a shower and of course I have a lot of laundry to do.

What else can I tell you about 2011? I've only exercised once on my elliptical because I've been dealing with tummy issues. I probably ate too much junk over the holidays and am paying for it now. I started out with a great attitude and outlook, but I think the winter blahs/depression is setting in. I think I have Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D.). Maybe time to sit by the window to get some sunshine or turn on one of those 'special' lights.

So for now, that's about all I can say about 2011. I only hope it gets better from here. I also hope I keep my promise to myself to be a more active blogger.

If you are reading this, Thanks.
