Back in Black

New year, huh?

I suppose it is. For that... hooray. I always like starting a new year. not as much as celebrating my birthday or going out to dinner... but new years work for me.

As you can see... I canned the pink. it'll be back, cause let's face it.. I do love pink. but for now... I'm working the black. It's slimming, no?

This is going to be another re-building year for me, gang. let's face it.. Rachel passing away flat out knocked me on my ass. I'm still nowhere near ok with her being gone... but I gotta get moving again. I was consumed with guilt a lot these past three months... and overall just lost and paralyzed. wait.. have I said this before? either way. it is what it is.

I sent out New Year's cards (instead of the christmas card) and included a letter to our friends and family in which I touched on some resolutions and the general state of life here in the house o' cze-johnson.

I'd talk about them now, but most of the few left who still check here probably already GOT the card, and really? I just wanted to get this obligatory first post over with. oh, and apparently one of the batteries in a fire alarm is going out, cause I hear a chirping.. a loud, ear-piercing CHIRPING which will SURELY wake up the sleeping child whom shall remain nameless but holy good LORD I need that boy to be napping right now... so I'm gonna go get that taken care of. that chirping needs to stop.

cause you know... naps are good. mommy NEEDS the kids to nap.

just sayin'.

I'm glad to see you back! Here's to a great new year and exciting new adventures (which will no doubt be plentiful w/two small children!).

Happy New Year! I am glad to hear from you, as I've been manically checking the Cze-J for way too long...waiting...hoping...praying that you were really OK (or as OK as OK can be right now) least I can be less manic, now that you've gotten over the hump of the first New Year post. Headed to Jersey later this month for my mom's 80th. Wow! That's crazy. I'll be traveling sans partner with the two gremlin-pumpkins. Still miss you...still miss the cheesecake brownies...even though I made some a couple months back that didn't taste nearly as good as they did back in Daytona! Much love. Deb in Denver

I'm glad you're back! And yes, black is very slimming. I'm wearing it today.

Let's hope this year is a much better one for you!

It'll be awhile before you're ok, but it does get easier. Not perfect, but easier. Wishing you many happy moments this New Year, Crystal in Sacramento.

Nice to see you back in the written word. Slow and steady, right? It all comes together like a woven blanekt, feeligns, moments, times to come... so just keep on keeping on and don't beat yourself up for breathing now and then.

I'm digging the black. Tres chic.

Yay! You're back! I was starting to do crazy things like curse out my computer screen when I'd check on you and you were still PINK lady! I'm just happy to see you again.
(and yes, I got the new year card--loved it! Beautiful photo of the kids. Gracias!)
