As my last post was a month ago, I feel it necessary to pop in and give you all a little update on my life.  It seems like blogging hasn't just taken a backseat, it's more like stuffed in the trunk.  :\ 

About 2 months ago, we started the process of getting my son evaluated for autism.  Two weeks ago, we got the official diagnosis... he's autistic.  Being a rational human, I realize that autism is not a death sentence, by any stretch of the imagination.  It just means that it's going to take a bit more work on everyone's part.  However, the mommy in me died a bit that day.  I was reeling and it took about a week for me to quit crying.  I kept going back and emotionally cutting myself by reading "A Trip to Holland".  I feel quite a bit better now and we do have a plan on place, but those first few days were rough.

Also, I've started working out like a mad person.  I go to the gym everyday and workout for about an hour and a half each time.  I've seen inches lost, but the scale keeps going up.  Stupid muscle mass.  LOL.  So there's where a big chunk of my free time has gone.

Plus, my job really ramped up over the past few weeks, but now we are seeing a decline in volume again, so I hope (*hope*), I may be able to get in some swatching soon.

I hate it that my blog has essentially died.  I do try to keep up with the blogging world on Twitter, but I still feel like I'm completely out of the loop, and I miss it.  :(  I think I really need to make a concerted effort this weekend to swatch some of the new collections I've received.  Though at this point, some are so outdated, you may no longer care.  :P

Also, I really don't want to do this, but I'm going to have to suspend blogger round ups.  I just don't have time to do them, and I don't want anyone entering in their info and waiting on me to get my act in gear.  I just don't know when that's going to happen.  I do plan on slowly doing them again, and I have plenty of blogs to list (both from my form and from my giveaway), so if you give me your blog info, you may see it in a roundup in the future, but for now, the round ups are going on an indefinite hiatus.

Anyway, thank you all for sticking with me.  I really hope I'm able to get back in the action again soon.
