Hello, Readers! I don't know how many of you follow this blog very closely but you may have noticed a lull in the number of posts recently.
No? Okay. Consider me humbled.
I've lacked a bit of inspiration lately. Oh, those pesky dry seasons in life.
Or am I just lazy? A hefty dose of both, most likely.
Vicious cycles of the bipolar brain.
So here is my confession... I am wholly unprepared for the upcoming 31Day series hosted by another, very prolific and popular blogger.
I started planning for it way back in February but lost steam somewhere along the way. In order for me to do what needs to be done to be ready, I'd have little time for much else. A few cups of coffee here and there, and an occasional potty break would be about it. It was a VERY ambitious (for me) series.

And since I'm not sure I want to convert this blog into a "follow me on my weight loss journey to health" blog, I've joined another forum dedicated to health and fitness for regular people. Like a combo of MySpace and Weight Watchers, only free. It also has a blogging feature!
Don't worry, though!
You weren't? Okay. You folks are determined to keep me in line!
I still plan to post my usual stuff about the goings on around My Not-So-Empty Nest, just not in a break-neck attempt to complete the aforementioned challenge.
Writing this blog has been very good for me and have no intention of giving it up. So I hope all 4 of you who read will continue to do so and comment occasionally to let me know you're out there!
This was going to be the button for my series. I want to share it with you because I think it is pretty...
