Well, It has been a very long hiatus.  But I am back.  We are seeing the beginning of a new stage in our evolution as a family.  Mom has returned to the workforce, Dad has changed careers, kids are potty trained, going to dances and yes going to "sleepovers".  So much has happened since my last check in that I am sure that this will have to be in 2 parts.  I have finally decided to return to work.  I am counseling pregnant women to quit smoking and it is a great job working with great people, that I can feel good about.  Unfortunately I still miss my munchkins about every other moment of the day; but that is off set by the fact that It feels darn good to be back and to feel like I am making a difference at home as well as in my community.  Our little people are going through many changes as well and school is coming soon for the youngest ones and HIGH school is around the corner for the oldest!  So we are all evolving.  
SO I am following my bliss working at a job I love, still cringing at the burst of 100 or so new grey hairs on my head that sprout new every day, struggling to enjoy my outside job while missing my munchkins, trying to juggle dinner and dessert, lipstick and laundry, housework and homestead, kitchen and kiddies....oh...it's nothing....just mommyhood:)  Enjoy your blissful life.....
