Back From My Blogging Sabbatical...

The last couple of months have been quite busy for Michael and me, and I inadvertently took a long break from the world of blogging. No fear, though, I'm back! I was trying to re-enter the blogosphere with an exciting post, but I have no earth-shattering news or event. So, I guess I will explain what's been going on at the Ford's in the last few weeks.
I have recently poured a large amount of my time into organizing my life, and I am finally feeling much better about the whole situation. It's amazing to me how clutter can cause such anxiety. One little thing can be unorganized (i.e. my closet, car, work bag, lunch box, etc.) and I cannot cope. Is it unhealthy? Yes. Do I need Lexapro? Yes. Does Michael think I need Lexapro? Yes. Am I about to get on Lexapro? Yes. Anyway, my life is 99% organized now, and I am so excited about it.
Also, I am now working the same hours as you people reading this blog! I now have a full-time days position, and I couldn't be more thrilled. I so took for granted the small things like being able to have dinner with my husband. Working nights for a year really made me realize how special things like that are and how easily they can be overlooked. I am so thankful that God provided me the opportunity to have a job that I love so much. When you look at the big picture, working nights was really a small sacrifice considering how great my job is. I definitely have GREAT respect for people who work nights on a long term basis. I would need more than Lexapro!!
Michael and I have been enjoying thinking about what will be coming to our house around January 2010. Chaucer and Colette! We have our fingers crossed! Which reminds me, I have got to talk to my doctor (about the Lexapro) and our breeder (about the puppies)!
I promise I won't stay away as long this time...
