What's a Blogger to Do?

When one realizes that it has been over 2 months since the last posting. When a relative comments "perhaps you've run out of things to say..." (not likely!). When one has missed out on reporting some pretty big events. 

Whatever is one to do?

Well, first, I would suggest a less formal tone. One is actually you. And by you, I mean me.

So, I'm just going to jump back in. I'll start from here-- where I am today and perhaps we can have some fun Flashback Fridays for a time.

Where I am today: I'm back in Kazembe. It has been nearly a week since Tom and I turned into our gravel driveway at around 4 PM last Thursday, and I realized I had been gone for almost exactly 3 months. That is a long time in orphanage months.

All the big kids were waiting by the gate to say hello. They presented me with sweet, homemade cards. 

I met Samuel for the first time. He is adorable. More about him soon.

Our regular two-week shopping  accompanied Tom and I home, so I jumped straight into helping out with unloading and stashing away, and then cooked a beef stir-fry for dinner. It felt wonderful to be back in my kitchen!

I've unpacked all but two of the six suitcases and trunks that traveled home with me and my big project right now is figuring out what happened to my desk. Standing in its place is a massive pile of papers and debris. I'm assuming it's still there somewhere. 
Payroll was due just 3 days after I arrived so I got that out of the way--with just a few tears (all mine of course)--and now I can focus on getting on top of my paperwork. 

My trip to the U.S was a wonderful success and I'll be sharing more of that with you soon.

Also in the blogging pipeline: Josephine (the second new child), my shrinking self, castles and memorials, new classrooms, proud moments, interesting experiences, and more.

    I drop a leave a response each time I like a article
    on a site or if I have something to valuable to
    contribute to the conversation. Usually it's triggered by the sincerness displayed in the post I browsed. And after this article "What's
    a Blogger to Do?". I was moved enough to post a thought ;) I do have some questions for you if it's allright. Is it just me or do some of these comments appear like coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing on additional online sites, I would like to follow anything new you have to post. Could you list all of all your social pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
