Rejuvenating my blog

It’s been more than two years since I’ve blogged. I’ve wanted to. I wrote many posts in my head, but just never got around to publishing them; I’m not sure why. Maybe it was because I wrote so much for school that I didn’t feel like writing anything else.

Anyway, I’m back now. Actually, I thought of starting a whole new blog. But I see no point in leaving an outdated blog up and didn’t want to take the time right now to back up all my posts. Plus, I didn’t want to have to think of a new blog name (thus taking it away from someone else) when I really like the one I have. So here I am.

First, let me summarize the past two years. This is more for myself than my readers (because I know I don’t have any). It will be a good look back.

– In August, I finally completed my masters degree in journalism. It was a four-year journey. I am SOOOO glad to be done!
– I have a 12-year-old brother named Ben. In fact, he joined our family shortly before the last post I wrote two years ago. He has been a foster child for most of this time, but the adoption was finalized in September! He sure is an awesome kid!!
– The teenage foster child we had for a year and-a-half left our family almost that long ago. I took it really hard and will always miss her.
– We have a different teenager with us now. She can be hard to live with, as most teenagers can be. But really she’s pretty cool.
– I have a 2-year-old nephew named Malachi, who is too smart for his own good. Some days (like today) he acts like he doesn’t like me, but I know better 😉
– I have a new niece or nephew coming next month 🙂
– This summer I embarked on a quest toward healthy(er) living. Currently, its a little off and on since the cold weather limits the produce available. I’m still figuring out my winter options. There will be more on this soon.
– I’ve seen lots of good days, bad days, friendship, laughter (lots of laughter), a few tears and made a lot of memories. Overall its been a pretty good two years!
