Starting anew.

Well, well, well. I guess I can only stay away from my beloved Beanstalk for so long.  I’m sitting here on my couch, morning coffee in hand, and I have a sudden urge to post on the ol’ blog. Old habits die hard.

So here I am, posting on the ol’ blog with not much to say. Or, too much to say. There have been so many things that have happened since my last post that I vote we just start anew. I don’t have the energy [or the memory] to update you guys on everything that has happened since February. My birthday, Lu’s birthday, summer holidays, summer vacations [New Hampshire, Denver, Iowa City]. I got to see family, see old friends and make new friends. Life is good, isn’t it?

Starting anew on the blog right now feels appropriate.. a part of me will always consider September the beginning. Even though my world doesn’t change in September, it use to change in September. I always loved the first day of school. The kiddos in Chicago go back to school today. Wishing them a happy & successful year.

Alright, this dinky little post is all I have for now. I’ll be back with my random musings on a more regular basis. Off to yoga. Bye.
