Back to my normal self

sick baby Pictures, Images and Photos

I have been sick since past Saturday, but I am finally able to sit and type today's post which is a relief!!! I was able to visit some blogs and leave comments, but when it came to writing my own post, my brain just didn't want to help me with it.

It all started when I realized my right ear was acting weird. It felt like when you go swimming and get water inside of your ear. I couldn't pop it, so it was very uncomfortable. And I thought I was losing my hearing which was really a scary thought! Then somehow I caught a bug from my Soapy who had been coughing at night (which she got it from her sis Ju Ju's BFF, Little Miss M). My body ached and joints hurt... I couldn't get out of the bed all day yesterday. I was miserable!!!

On top of that, I was a bit overwhelmed with everything: my new work, kids and everything else's in my life. I hadn't had the chance to really sit, relax and take it all in when I started my new job because I was always on the go. So, I decided to take a little break from blogging and recharge my energy. I think it helped me so much. What I realized is that you need own peace and serenity in order to enjoy your life and yourself. Without having that, you would totally lose it!

I just want to thank you all who entered the "Pay It Forward" contest last week! I will announce the lucky winners tomorrow afternoon, so stay tuned!!

This is where I want to be right now...

I know if I had 2 children and a family I never would be able to blog, I can barely do it now, we totally undestand. :)
RELAX WOMAN!

You are so right on about finding your own peace and serenity.

Grab it where you can find it! And that picture looks like the ideal place.

For me, for now, it is the snatches of time I take to be here, or not, if I don't feel like doing it, I don't.

But it's nice cuz it's always waiting for me when I get back.

And it's always good to hear that I was missed.:)

Peace - Rene

Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day- I am still getting back since I want to actally get a feel for every one who stopped by.
Really liking your blog, so much I am adding it to my list- and I love how you showcased James Pond and his family- you are so right, a lot of us want to do the right thing but it is a rare and wonderful individual who totally changes his whole life as well as his family to do so. :)
Oh, and most of my *true loves* were wanted to be in loves. ;)
