Well, as promised, I’m back. In my last post, I apologized for getting lazy with my blogging and told people to stop nagging me, which prompted the question from my son, Brian, “Wow, Mom, are people really pressuring you to get back to work? I didn’t realize your fans hung on your every word.” Wise guy. Okay, I admit, no one was nagging me, except myself. I’m sure no one noticed that I hadn’t written anything in a while. Ouch. But, truth be told, I’m aware, understand and fully accept the fact that people have lives that do NOT revolve around me and my fragile ego.

Okay, I know I’ve been slacking a bit on the blogging lately (so stop your nagging, already. I mean it). I feel like I’ve got a lot going on right now – making sure my son, Brian, has all his financial business in order for the start of his graduate program at De Paul in a few short weeks, taking my daughter, Mary Kate, on various college visits, getting my other son, Peter, ready to move into his apartment in Iowa City in a couple of DAYS, squeezing in a trip to Door County, WI to relax and attend concerts at Birch Creek Music Performance Center to see Mary Kate perform in concert, planning my OTHER son, Mike’s, wedding rehearsal dinner (which, I know, shouldn’t be a big deal, but, believe me, it’s become complicated), buying a dress for the wedding (I’m starting to stress a little about that, but I know I’ll have a great dress that day – somehow), working, and, of course, juggling bills, bills, bills (something I’m sure everyone can relate to, right?). Anyway, once my brain gets cleared, I’m confident that I’ll be much more prolific.
But, in the meantime, I came across this fun poll and thought I’d share it with you. Enjoy…
WHAT EVENTS ARE YOU LOOKING MOST FORWARD TO AT THE 2012 LONDON OLYMPICS?
Swimming. Phelps is going to put the pot aside for a couple weeks!
Volleyball. Kicking my girlfriend out and throwin’ on the sweatpants!
Rowing. I’m not from the states.
Gymnastics. I dream of meeting a girl that limber someday…
Basketball. The NBA playoffs just were not enough for me!
