It's been 10 months since our baby girl was born.  I've written so little, even though time after time I said to myself, "I have got to share this moment!"  Yet, I rarely did.  So much in our lives has happened and writing just kept being pushed lower and lower on my to-do list. 

I took Squeak's to a friend's BBQ last weekend and for the first time I thought, "I feel good.  I am back."  I am trying to organize myself more and give myself actual writing goals.  I'm good at 140 character Tweets, but am not good at carving out time for longer writing.  My goal is one personal and one professional blog each week - wish me luck! 

As many of you know I took a magnificent step in my career just over three months ago when I became the Digital Content Manager for 9NEWS.  What you probably don't know, because I haven't shared this, is I am the newly elected President of the Heartland Chapter of NATAS, which is our regional Emmy chapter.  (One of those I need to blog moments that didn't happen.) What you may know is Shawn left the television news industry after 14 years to focus on teaching and freelancing.  (I did blog this!)  What you probably don't know is Squeaks is trying her hardest to walk and finally cut her first tooth just yesterday.  Nor do you know that my stepsons are growing way too fast and one chose to stay in baseball while the other is going to take scuba diving lessons.  (All moments that I should have written about.)

Some of life has felt like I was being tossed around in the waves, just barely able to see land.  Now I feel like I am I am swimming in the waves and am resurfacing.
