Boston

You thought you were rid of me, eh? Well, I'm back, and I've got some things to say!

The last two weeks have been calm and quiet and good. Re-reading my last post, the situation a few weeks ago sounds so simple and one-dimensional, but it isn't. Despite that, I'm feeling good about where I am now, and I am so, so grateful for the really sweet gestures from so many. Thank you! What comes of two weeks without blogging and social media is a lot of sleep, a lot of talking with your husband, winning Scrabble (worth noting since Mr. TBS almost always wins), working out, the flu, and a whole heap of school stuff.

I admit that it was nice to pretend that this blogging thing didn't exist, but surprise, surprise. I miss it, so here I am.

I'm happy to be back, but I can't ignore the looming tragedy of yesterday. Like the rest of the country, I'm still in shock about the Boston marathon bombings yesterday. Thankfully, everyone I know is all right.

My sister is a runner, and I've been at so many of her finish lines amongst the cheers and festivities. It's an exciting place to be, and athletes dedicate so much to those events. This catastrophe leaves me shaken, even 1,800 miles away.

I'm sending my best out to Boston and all who have been affected. 
God bless those who stepped in and became heroes, no uniform required.

So happy to see you back. It really is a tragedy when yesterday should have been a joyous and accomplishing day.

Glad you got some R&R away from blogging and social media gooorl! You deserve it!!

On the other hand, I too am very shocked and shaken by Boston's events yesterday. Targeting another innocent audience for no reason at all? Just makes me fearful to be alive in this era :(
