Back by Popular Demand...

I’m back by popular demand!

{Haha!  No, that’s so not true.  I just made that up.}

Its okay, I know you were all wondering where I was…
{again, I made that up too}

I took a long vacation from my wits, that’s where I’ve been. 
I’ve been working like crazy, spending the little time left running in circles and trying to keep up with doctor appointments for the kiddos and the house and trying to eek out a few moments with Po and then writing.  Truthfully, I’ve been a mess.  I’m flying by the seat of my pants and my bum is need of some new padding!  Haha!
{Did anyone else just get a funny visual of that?}

I had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I hope all of you did too!  Mama and Daddy had the kids while Po and I worked that Wednesday and I’m telling you they cooked the heck out of the place.  I thought I would have to pay my dues of being new at work, but they gave me Thanksgiving off and I was so happy.

I ate more on that one plate than I had eaten the entire week
Then I wanted to die
Then I vowed never to eat again
Then I had pie
Then we played games with the kids and relaxed
Then we went home I still wanted to die
I asked myself why I do this to myself every year
And then I ate…again {wink}

I haven’t had any moments for more “Chronicles of Movement”; however, I’ve had several “chronicles of standing”.  I would like to just put this thought out there…
Dude, I was so much more adept to this in my early 30’s.  This standing around stuff at work is leaving me such a sad little granny without her walker when I get home.  At work, I’m peppy and full of smiles and I have this higher pitched sweet cashier voice because I’m all about customer service and then I come home and I look like the hunch back of Notre Dame!  Haha! 

This is not me joking people this is me sitting on a heating pad at this very moment.
{And every moment I’m home!}

 I crack myself up.  My back hurts but while I’m sitting on my heating pad I have to then switch it to {usually my right leg} because of leg spasms.  So then after a bit my back starts again….I have a solution.  I need heating “Pants”.  Good right?  I may end up rich after all once those things hit the market. 
Eat my pants Snuggie!  What?!

Okay, this might be a sign I have in fact been away from the blogging world for too long and it is true indeed that the portion of me we thought to be sane was indeed a facade.  I still want the heating pants…I’m just sayin’

So, on to the next update, I’ve been writing.  At night, when I should be asleep but I can’t sleep because I get off late I get a second wind that should be filled with cleaning and laundry but instead is spent vomiting words from a story onto a page. 

See when I get a story in my head and I don’t get it out onto “paper” then it’s all I think about.  I can’t sleep, I can’t focus {okay like that’s new} and it literally consumes me.  So I’ve taken a break from the one I dreamt about to get this little puppy out of my brain.  It’s been therapeutic.  Since writing is my escapism it’s possible the story was created to pretend I am the beautiful and witty main character who does not require heating pants.  {maybe…grin}

It’s coming along though.  Not my sleep, the story.  I’ll let you know if it turns out to be crud or not.

I would also love to throw out a big fat THANK YOU to Beth from 
I have about 30 new followers from her Black Friday giveaway.  If any of you new followers have come back to stop by then  

And for some reason I feel the need to tell you I just ate almost an entire pint of my homemade salsa while writing this post.  I’m feeling pretty good about it too.  I swear there is something euphoric about that salsa.  Maybe I should market that too.  What a perfect holiday combination; Heating pants and Pidg’s salsa for those cold and old winter days!

{Okay, I’m done, for reals this time..smirk}
But if you have any ideas for packaging just let me know {giggle}

Okay, I’m off to write.  I missed you all to pieces!  I am hoping my little hiatus is over.  After this post, you might not be thinking the same thing.  Rambling and choppy thoughts…ut oh…it must be time for caffeine to slow the old brain down.

Have a great Monday!




  1. I was wondering where you were!!! I'm glad you're back. I was super excited when I saw a new post in my daily reads section from you. I'm glad you had a great Thanksgiving and the day off. :) I did the same thing, ate too much then wanted to die. Then I came home and ate more pie then went to bed with heartburn which kept waking me up coughing. I hope you're back for good cause I miss reading your daily happenings. :)

  2. Glad you are back..... I was wondering where you were too! Ooh... and I got my necklace the other day from the giveaway I won and I love it! I considered giving it to my mom for a Christmas present but I loved it too much and kept it for myself. :)

  3. YAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!! I, no joke, was seriously just thinking today...ok all day haha...why I haven't received an email about one of your posts!!! OK...actually it was this morning because I usually get a morning email alert with your post and that is my morning read with my coffee :) and then I logged onto Facebook just now and saw that Beth from Through the Eyes of the Mrs. announced you posted!!! I'm so happy you're back!! I love this!! Keep goin' chica!!

  6. Oh my gosh Pidg! I just love you!!! LMAO! When those heating pants hit the market.... I need three pair. Design one for a man wouldjya? My hubby could use a pair himself!!! You absolutely just brightened my night.... and guess what? I'm sitting on a heating pad! <3 - Dawnee

  7. I was awake (wanting to get up an write) when I got the ifttt notification (don't worry no one will know what ifttt) - its a gadget guru thing - anyway that you POSTED. Yay! Earlier in the week I checked to see if my ifttt was still working ;-) So I'm up. Since you had Salsa, I'm having Skittles (just a few) at 3:00 am. LOVED THIS, MISTCHA!

  8. Well, I think you should post about that Homemade salsa a little more!! I'd love some right about now! :)

  9. Welcome back! Missed ya tremendously - can you feel the love in here?:)

  10. Haha I am a newer reading and this was just what I needed this morning! A good laugh! Have a great week!! Looking forward to reading your posts!

  11. I have missed you SO MUCH woman!!! Heating pants...BAAAHAHAHA!!! You better bet I'd be right there next to you in my heating pants eating chips and salsa with you ;)

  12. I clearly am not the only one who missed you!!! Annnnnd I feel like the heating pants are a great idea, I do think they need a special extra cushiony part up front for that "time" when women (or just me) feel like my uterus is going to fall out with each little step. :) You had better patent those babies asap, you never know who is reading this, and you'll see them on QVC tomorrow at 9pm EST. LOL! :) Glad you're back!

  13. welcome back! i was wondering where you were! glad the holidays were a success.
