I’m Alive!

Well hello there. I know, I can't believe it either. A new post. What? You thought I died? Well no, but I've lived more than my fair share of life in the last couple of months, so I've been MIA from blogging. But I did think about it a lot, so the good news for you, is that I made my site better. At least I think so. Here's what changed. 1. Now when you happen by the site, you don't think it's written by a 13-year-old girl. While I liked (and lobbied hard for) my old background image, I'm over it. I'm also over all the annoying plugins I had in the side bar, and the big navigation bar, and lots of other crap. Now it's all user-friendly and it all works. What a concept. 2. I'm done giving advice. The truth is I don't really know what I'm talking about, I just like to talk. So if you read a future post, and there are good nuggets of advice, then that's a bonus. But from now on, if you want me to tell you what to do, you'll have to be my Boyfriend or future child. Sucks, I know. 3. I'm trying to find pleasure in simplicity. That's hard given that my favorite thing ever is to over-complicate everything. I am literally trying to figure out in what month I should give birth to my first child in order to give him (or preferably her) the best chance at life. See Kindergarten redshirting. No, I'm not pregnant and no I'm not engaged. Just a lunatic. So, I thought maybe if I simplified my site then maybe it will translate into a simplified lifestyle. We'll see. So what have I been up to? I know you've been patiently sitting on the edge of your seat wondering what my fabulous life has been like, but settle yourself, it's been more chaotic than exotic. Here's a peek. 1. Moved into the new house. You know how much fun moving is, so I'll leave it at that. 2. Hosted my immediate family of 5 in our new house for 5 days. Thankfully we're all of drinking age (at least vacation drinking age), and we pretty much have just become friends at this point. No bloodshed, lots of personal jabs. Great stuff. 3. Hosted Boyfriend's mom and nephew for a week. Loved having them stay with us. I've decided I will most likely be a helicopter parent, and for that reason, I probably shouldn't have kids. 4. Survived the depths of hell. If you live in the Midwest, and went outside at any point last week, you know what I'm talking about. So far the summer's been very eventful and exhausting, so Boyfriend and I booked an all-inclusive stay in Cancun to recuperate. How's that for simplifying?
