I know I've been scarce.

I do know that I've been pretty scarce for a while now. I'm attempting to get my sh*t in gear and get back to the way I was here at A Couch With A View. Here's a quick recap of what's going on in my world...

Work. I went back to work in November and the crazy work schedule does take a lot out of me. I don't work normal hours. I'm a waitress and a bartender, so when you want to eat and drink, that's when I'm at work. Evenings, into the later night. I'm usually home by 2:00 am and then I must sleep because the kids will be back at my house around 7:30-8:00 am.

Yes, I did just say "back at my house." Meaning, I split from my husband. I moved out as of July 1st, but it was quite some time coming. Things were too far gone for too long and we were just getting mean to each other, especially at the end. Things are still not nice, but we're apart and hopefully we can move past the bitterness and act like grown ups and conversate about the kids like normal human beings. Like I said, its not nice, therefore its not happening now, but I'm hoping someday it'll be like that. We'll see.

Prepping for BlogHer '10!! I've had these plans in place for a year now and now its not too far away at all. I miss the girls that I've grown to love over the past few years. I couldn't be happier to have them in my life and I'm so excited to see them once again. I haven't seen them since last September!! Its such a horrible feeling when you're going through so much and some of the best friends that you have are scattered all over the country.

I'm wrapping up a 77kids by American Eagle campaign through The Motherhood and I can't wait to write up the post about how cool the store is. It definitely rocks and I'm stoked to let you all know about it.

I wound up in the emergency room on Thursday, with what I thought was a broken nose. Having a toddler boy is hell on the body and with the headbutt that I received, I thought it was broken. Thankfully no, only seriously swollen and deeply bruised. I shall survive.

Yesterday was my birthday and it was probably the worst one I've ever had. So many plans fell through and I wound up eating awesome bbq take out and drinking wine straight from the bottle all alone last night. Eh. There's always next year...

I'm sure I'm missing lots that I've had to say, but that's that for now. Thanks to so many of you for sticking around even when I haven't had a lot to say. I promise, I'll be better soon!!

I wish I could have said "Happy Birthday" to you on your Birthday, but I hope saying it now somehow helps, "Happy Birthday."
I hope your life gets easier and better.
God Bless you.

Belated Happy Birthday to you. You definitely have been busy! I can relate to the crazy hours. I spent many years as a server and bartender. My last server gig was at a casino and was third shift (horrid hours but great money). It is tough, and you have my sympathy. I hope things start getting more positive in your life, and that BlogHer brings you much joy.
