It's Me Again!

I'm sorry I haven't been posting anything lately - I apologize to my three devoted readers.  :)  Seriously, I don't know who reads this besides my best friend and some people from Russia whom I suspect are some sort of spammers anyway.  But that's okay, I don't really do it for others - I don't think - I mainly do it for myself.  It's a space in which I can be myself, vent, opine, and maybe, just maybe, connect with another soul out there who's going through something similar.  Instead of posting I've been fiddling with the design and text colors.  I was bored with the "French Windows" or whatever my old design template was called.  Now it's appropriately named "Book Club!"

I almost posted a political rant last week after my blood got to boiling over something one of the candidates said.  And then I thought, why put that negativity out there into the universe?  Isn't there already enough negative energy in our society, especially in the political arena?  I held back.  And vented to my husband instead, who capably fulfilled the role of listener for me.

Speaking of my husband, have I told you lately how wonderful he is?  He is the best dad.  Affectionate, playful, caring, funny - all the qualities that made me fall in love with him have just blossomed beyond limits towards our son.  J.'s first word, not surprisingly, is "Dada."  He only says something like "mama" when he's crying!  They are big buddies, which I hope lasts forever. 


  1. I love your new layout! I need to upgrade mine!
    And I love seeing you so in love with your family! :)

  2. Good point, but I just can't help but rant politically on my blog. I'm actually planning to try to give up complaining for Lent. However, the one exception is politics.

    Every 4 years during a presidential campaign, my blog becomes full of politics as I can't help myself. :)

    It's gotten to the point that yesterday my mother-in-law (who wasn't reading my blog back in 2008) said to my husband, "Marie really has her knives out for that Santorini!" Haha. I'm sure I'm shocking my Tory mother-in-law! :)

  3. Santorini! Love it. Well, Marie, it's getting to the point where the ranting in my head is threatening to overwhelm me, so I may be forced to vent my feelings in the blogosphere. :) Seriously, I can no believe some of the things these GOP candidates say. And people are buying it! Gah!
