Okay...Here Goes. ::GULP:: A Little Bit of Hypocrisy and A LOT of Humility

I swore I would not do this.
I SAID I hate bloggers that leave their blogs and come back.

Well...hey. I am back. So, right now I HATE me and I am a big hypocrite.
I accept that.

Forgive me other bloggers that have done this...I am in your tent now.

I simply have too much to say - and those of you that followed me over to Facebook were all, like, "Gawd Skip...get a damn blog already. You are wordy as hell."

Yeah. I do tend to talk a LOT.  Not FB or Twitter worthy, believe me. I was close to getting banned. [KIDDING!]

So, I am back. Just a bit different, this time.

I always said I wrote "I Make Soap" for my family. THAT is true.  But guess what...the kids grew up.
And they know what is going on....and it ain't pretty. My health is sucky. Has been. You guys know this...but now...all those niggly little questions you SO wanted to know?  I will answer them.  I didn't write them before on the blog or admit because the kids didn't know. Now they do.

And? Now?  I get to talk about the GREAT, the BAD and the UGLY. Plus, the ridiculous and funny that seems to keep happening in our part of the world.  And if you are lucky you MIGHT get a recipe.

And know there is going to be a helluva' lot of fun stuff on here.  I never disappoint.  Steven and I have spent many a night re reading what I have already written - just stuff that happened - but we discovered I am pretty damn funny. To us anyway. Some of the conversations I have written down don't mean a lot to you  all, but my gosh, they make us stupid laughing.   So? There. giggle

And, no my punctuation is not getting better. It will continue suck. I can't proofread to save my life, [then again I am wondering who can HA - YES - sick humor is still around. What did you expect?]  and I think I need to start an orphanage for how many commas I *adopt* when I write this blog. [that was for you Fitz] I am a comma hoarder. I know this.

So..THAT is all going to stay the same.

But, now? I am going to cuss a bit. Not much..but some things make me so incredibly mad [think health care in THIS country] that an occasional "shit" and "fuck" are going to sneak in, sorry about that.

Right now? I am back in the house, stuck [and I LOVE our home] occasionally out in Ozcarz and trying my best.  But I am now writing this blog for ME.  Stay, insult me, love me, leave.....at this point, I know who my friends are and I will take care of you and try not to offend you.

You guys are tried and true - and I would NEVER have made it this far without you.  I only ask that you not question what I do with my children - that's all.

Question, complain, bitch at me if you will...but Sr, Dee, Tee, Squirrel and Wallene are off limits. That's all I ask.

Steven and I are fair game. Just when you hear our decisions - don't question our position with the kids. Okay?

I know you all.  My Tadpoles. Gosh, I love you guys....there is a lot of honesty coming...you have probably already figured out a lot...but ....I need this.

I need this blog.

Otherwise I think I am going to chew Steven's ear off.  Ask those on FB - they know. giggle

See you on the FLIPSIDE! I AM BACK - about 12 pm today.

Love and miss you all.  JG

Yay, you are back. A very wise decision my little froglet !! We will all be thrilled to bits that you are back, and we will laugh with you, swear with you and support you as much as we possibly can. We won't even mind about the commas. I always think I put in far too many anyway ! So! We are here on this ride with your little Skippy friend. Write and say whatever you want to! The only thing I have to ask, is that now that I've come off my Blog, could you please let me know on Facebook when a new post comes up ? Thank you! Sending love and big hugs to all of you x

Lyndylou said...

Woo hoo...she's back!!! I love it :) I have been trying to get onto my blog for weeks but the damn thing wont show me anything!

Still trying though and looking forward to hearing you swear...lol...and of course to hear all your news xxx

Happy to see my dear friend back and raising some hell!! Go D-U-K-E-S!!!!!!!

Steven Nicolle said...

Great you are back SkippyMom!

Tessa said...

Ok, I'm #5 but I said I would be here and here I be....lol. So glad to have you back where you belong! I can't wait to read everything you write. Tessa doing the Happy Dance here ....

Jeannie said...

hey hey! Well, I for one, have missed you although I don't miss wasting time reading blogs. I hope I don't get sucked back in looking for good ones. I totally understand wanting to blog again - I won't - but I understand it. Sometimes, you just want to air out the socks. And for the record, I think you and Steven have seriously messed up your kids and there's no hope for them whatsoever. ;)

Big Mama was at the back door this morning when I opened it up to let the cat in and she made me think of you. So. I am so glad you are back because I have missed you and was so happy to see this post! And I would never question or criticize how you deal with your kids.

Marni Hicks said...

YAY!

CWMartin said...

Funny, I was just going to send an e-mail to say hi and hope everything was okay. Forgive me if I decide to just be a lurker this time, though.

I think blogging will be very cathartic for you Skippy!

And you know I swear like a truck driver in real life - so the f - bomb doesn't scare me one bit!

Hugs - and welcome back!!

Tracy said...

Well when you responded to a tweet yesterday I figured you might be sneaking back into the digital world. Looking forward to reading your stuff again. :)

Greenmare said...

Atta girl Skip! It's like a diary that talks back to you! eep, that could be good or bad, as long as you don't pull a Voldemort and possess us when we read it! Love you dearly!

Gypsy said...

It is SO good to see you blogging again. And there is such a wonderfully supportive community out here waiting to hear how you and your family are doing, and we're all pulling for you.

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

Woo HOO! I'm glad to hear it. Just blurt it all out, kiddo... the good, the bad, and the ugly. We're listening, and you know we already love you. Nothing you can say or do will ever change that.

(And I loved the post time. Made me smile.)

Diane Laney Fitzpatrick said...

Yay! And, I think, your use of commas, is just, fine, really.

noexcuses said...

Welcome back! I, too, have been away for various reasons. I was drawn back by your name, "Skip", which was my mom's name. Then I remembered your blog and why I liked it so much. I think I've screwed up my kids, too! I look forward to reading more from you!

Teresa - in the Middle Side of Life said...

Very happy to see you back! I've missed reading your posts, and yes... You are VERY funny! I'd never question your decisions regarding the kids and no one else should, either. Life is too precious to judge the actions of others. Much love to you and yours.

Juli said...

Hello! *waving from New England* You'll be happy to know that I ditched my plans for the evening because my feet hurt. I know, right? *I* put myself first tonight... that and the kids weren't begging for the beach bonfires tonight. :) I for one are GLAD you are back. Let it all out girlie!! And you know, I thought about this all day (while cooking in the mail truck) and since this is a "new chapter" of the "book 'o Skippy" why not change the name? Perhaps, "I Use Soap" or "Wash MY Mouth Out With Soap", or "Comma Hoarders Unite!".

Just a thought. :)

Jason and Michelle said...

I'm glad you're back :)
Healthcare in this country is a disgrace. I won't even begin that rant....

Eva Ason said...

Hello there friend :-) Happy to see ya back!!! You can do as many missed punctuations as you like...I still enjoy reading your posts (Ha!) Happy 4th of July to you and Steven.
Hugs from Ireland xo

Welcome back! :D

Linda said...

I had just started reading your blog when you went away. I never did figure out what your health problems were. But, you are funny.

Yum Yucky said...

1st Man said...

YOU ARE BACK!!!!! I don't know how I missed your return. I feel like you had a party and I forgot to come, lol. SO nice to see you back among the blogging. OK, now off to catch up on what I"ve missed since you started back.

Big hugs!

I am so glad you are back. I really missed you.
