Is This Thing Still On?

So, we have taken a bit of a break here, but now we are back in business!  I have to admit that I have been desperate for a creative outlet and I am so glad that my fellow Wonder Women agreed to come back to this blog.  It has been YEARS since I wrote anything for Wonder Women, so I had to take a walk down memory lane to see what has changed in my life.  It would seem that almost everything is different.

In 2009, Superman and I took the most amazing anniversary trip to California wine country.  That weeklong trip will go down in history as one of the best trips of my life.  During that trip, we plotted out a great number of changes in our lives.

In 2010 we lost Wondercat after he went bonkers and started attacking us.  That was not so fun.  Later in the year we adopted two kittens who were meant to mend our broken hearts and instead they both left us too early -- one due to an illness and the other to an accident.  2010 was one of the worst years of my life in many ways and I was very happy to see the calendar turn to 2011.

In 2010 we set in motion the mechanics to make a move back to our homeland.  This took months and months of work and stress on both our parts.  We did manage to pull off what can only be described as the biggest surprise in our family's history when we announced we were not moving overseas, but only a few miles away.  The look on my mother's face was worth all the stress.

In early 2011, we moved back to the midwest, started building a house and began to get settled in.  However, a wrench was thrown in our nice and easy settling in plans when we discovered we were expecting Superbaby!  Superbaby made me nauseous for most of 2011 and arrived six weeks early to make the point that life would never again be predictable or uneventful.  This baby has blown my heart wide open and makes me laugh every single day.

During 2011, I also became a stay at home mama and I love my new job.  It is fun, trying, rewarding all at the same time.

So, to say that things have changed for me and that I have a new perspective on life is an understatement.  However, I have embraced all of the change and welcome the chance to share some of myself and my life with you.

Thanks for sticking with us while we took a break and made some huge changes in our lives.  We are the same women -- we have just matured (a little!) and have some new life experience.

And don't forget that YOUR wine-country anniversary trip inspired OUR wine-country anniversary trip ... a debt I can never repay. Fearless readers, you should each make sure you have a wine-country anniversary trip of your own someday.
