I'm baaaaccckkkk....

... and madly trying to catch up on the almost 600 (!) posts on my Google Reader that have accumulated over the past week-plus. Between the renovation, work and my mother's visit, I feel like I'm quite of sync with the blogosphere these past several weeks. I've missed blogging about Canadian Thanksgiving, Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Day, the anniversaries of my grandparents' deaths, politics & elections (Canadian & American). Sigh.

I had a pretty good visit with my mom. I always start the week with such high expectations & umpteen plans for things we can do... which somehow never quite get fulfilled. Nevertheless, we spent time together & that's the main thing. And the weather was mostly goregous. : ) We did go to see "Jersey Boys" on (Canadian) Thanksgiving Sunday, which we thoroughly enjoyed. We went to the mall more than once, & strolled along the waterfront here. And we went to the cemetery last Sunday. Mom picked up a plastic Halloween pumpkin at the drugstore for Katie -- her one & only grandchild (guilt, guilt). :( Apparently it will light up, although the batteries weren't working. : )

In the meantime, I was pleasantly surprised to log on here & find a flood of comments from the lovely ladies at SITS. Not quite sure how you found me, but so glad to see pregnancy & infant loss being recognized in the broader blogosphere.

Coming up: return to work on Monday (boo, hiss...), escalating year-end madness, Halloween.... and my blogoversary!!


  1. Glad your back and glad you had a break!

  2. Missed ya girl . . .

    Glad you had a good time with your mom and some fun.

    Seems like I turn my head for just a second and g. reader has amassed an entire library of posts for me to go through - but 600! Gracious lady - what are you reading??!!

    Anyway - glad you are back and thanks for stopping by "my place" while you unpacked!

  3. Welcome back! I'm glad you had a nice visit with your Mom. Take your time catching up ... 600 entries is a lot of reading! I'll likely face the same after my parents visit in December. Yikes!

  4. welcome back! a break can be rejuvenating sometimes.
