Breaking the Silence- Part 1

Are you there? Yes, I am here and kicking despite the lack of posts.  Things have been quiet around here totally silent. This is where I'd normally apologize for being a bad blogger. But to be honest, there won't be an apology this go round. 

Do you wish you have been blogging?  Absolutely. I love sharing our foster parent experience so people can understand what it is really like. And I love using this space as both my outlet for everything that life throws at me and a virtual scrapbook of sorts. Not to mention that this blog has provided me with so much support in the past that I miss those virtual hugs. However, blogging becomes no fun when you can't/don't want to/don't know how to discuss what is going on in your life with the rest of the world. And this is the biggest reason why nothing has been said until now. 

Do you regret that you haven't been blogging? Not a bit. Life has taken us on a wild ride we NEVER expected. My first job is wife, then mom (you can insert foster or doggie before that if it makes you more comfortable), then accountant, and finally blogger. So when I'm up to my capacity in those first three jobs, the blog will slow down.  And in some circumstances like this one, it will just go completely silent.

So what happened? Since I have been gone a while, this is a loooong story.  You may have guessed by the title of this post that there will be additional parts to come.  This, in fact, is Part 1 of 3.  So stick around this week to hear the whole story! If you've been here before you'll know that my updates are the uber vague in general and this will be no exception. Honestly, I really wish I could just tell the whole story but it's against the rules and not in everyone's best interest. So here's my attempt at explaining this crazy story while only giving you 5% or less of the details! This should be fun!

Let's start with explaining what was behind this post.  Within a week, I found out that one of my favorite people had undiagnosed medical problems, my job could be eliminated, and that Butter Bean could be "going home today". Those last three words rocked my world. Not because I'm not in support of reunification- I totally am- but because it was happening on a technicality.  The good news is that those first two things resolved themselves meaning my friend is okay and I'm still employed.  Butter Bean's case was not easily resolved. 

To be continued.  duhn, duhn, DUHN!
