Well HELLO There!

No really. It's ME! KATY!!
(Did you wet yourselves just a teeny bit??)
And I'm not even at the public library! I'm in my very own house.. on my very own chair.. in front of my very own.. wait for it.. PROFESSIONALLY REPAIRED, no-joke, computer!
I've never felt so high.
It has been OVER 3 months.. as in.. maybe even 100 days, since I have had any real kind of consistant cyber-world access, and I kinda feel like the 5th grader that moved away for her Dads job that didn't work out so has moved into Grandmas house back in her home town, showing up at middle school hoping her old friends let her sit at the lunch table! Do you even REMEMBER me?? Does my family look VAGUELY familiar?? Take a minute.
It'll come to you.
Oh the moments I have missed!! The posts that have past me by!! Is blogging even still a THING?? Are there new trends and fonts I'm behind on?? Am I allowed back in??
I feel, so, BEHIND. But I'm a fighter..and determined to forge ahead.. not dwelling on the past (or even really making a fervent effort to catch up on yours, or mine.. cause that's just overwhelming-- and a given that children would miss feedings, and underwear would not get washed.) SO! I'm startin' fresh!
Join me.. won't you??
(Unless ofcourse, a newer, even cooler girl moved in on my side bar slot on your own blog, ya know, while I was away.. and you must choose to leave me behind. Understandable. Hurtful.. but understandable.)
But being that it has been, winter.. and it is still, COLD.. ya really haven't missed out on much from me. Lots of driving Jesse to school.. searching for the perfect work-out pant, watering the chickens, and singing Taylor Swift songs really, really loud.
WOW. Maybe it's an O.K thing I haven't been here to bore you to falling tears.
So for now.. I will just delight in the fact that I will have access to all of YOUR adventures.. and leave you with some of the things that have come out of my kids mouths lately that entertain me WAY more than the Redbox rentals I've been checking out.. (Example: 2012. Really? Honestly if that limo, or plane, barely missed one more falling building or piece of flying schrapnel, I was gonna lose it.)
So here's just a few of my latest favorites:
(Note.. I'm not forgetting that I have a son Jesse.. it's just that being 13 and all, he prefer I don't quote him so much.)

Sam, while lacing up his shoes for school, casually asked,
"Mom, do you know what a 'pimp-slap' is?"

Bo, when asked by his brother why he felt he should be allowed to play such mature games on the X-BOX, responded:
"I don't know. I just like them. Don't judge me."

And Sophie, when questioned about her possible need for a fresh pair of undies, replied,
"I don't know Mom. Smell if they smell JUICY."

On that note..
real glad to be back.
