Haiku Friday: where the hell’d she go?

hey, have you seen cate?
she hasn’t blogged in ages
where the hell’d she go?

she used to be here
it’s like she done dropped off the
face of the planet!

i’m here. and i’m sorry i left the blogosphere without a word to anyone. but i’ve been in my own personal packing/unpacking/moving hell. seriously…whose idea was it to move anyway? oh ya…it was mine.


i’m in my new house. it’s small, but beautiful. the layout makes daily life with the boys much easier. still settling in, but we’re enjoying it.

moving was tougher than i thought it would be. lots of thoughts and emotions cropped up that i kinda half-expected didn’t expect, and which took their toll on me…leading to my disappearance. and the logistics of the move itself were mind-boggling. but that’s another super-long post.

i’d like to keep my re-entry light-hearted, so i’ll refrain from sharing the depressing details for a few days. for now, i’m just glad to be back.

i missed you all….did you miss me? (lookin’ for some love here…hint hint! 😉 )

    Welcome. Back. So happy you are in. Moving in is just has hard as moving out.

  9. Kelly says:

    I’ve moved with a family, and can attest to its own brand of hellishness. I can feel your pain. Take your time, ease back into blogging when you feel you can.

    I even emailed to see if you were okay. I’m so happy to see you posting again.

  11. Scylla says:

    Moving does suck, but great Haiku!

  12. yertle says:

    Yay you’re back. I missed you. I had checked to see what your last post was a while ago, and realized you were in the middle of moving! Transitions are challenging. Be gentle with yourself.

  13. Kathryn says:

    And, she’s back! Yeah!!!!

  14. Jennifer says:

    Glad to see you out and about! I know ALL about moving…

  15. Mommy Daisy says:

    I have missed you, and it’s good to “see” you again. Good luck settling in.

  16. wineymomma says:


    I hate moving!

    I think I will probably go into blog withdrawal when the time actually comes!!!

  17. Stepford Mom says:

    Moving is the bane of my existence, I feel for you. Glad to see you survived it and are able to get back to normal stuff again :)

  18. bananas says:

    Glad to see you back online! are you back online? I can see how movign and unpacking and all that could get in the way of blogging. Ugh.

  19. Charlise says:

    I was worried about you!!! Glad you are back.

  20. Huckdoll says:

    Hi Cate! Good to hear you are doing well and that you’re back :) It’s been a loooong time since a post of your popped up in my reader!

    Hi Cate,
    I found a great site called “women’s hair loss project network” for all of us with Alopecia of some sort. Check it out.

  22. I would pretty much gouge my eye out before I ever enjoyed moving.
    Best of luck with the boxes and the sun coming out and giving you a sunny outlook on life. (WHOO! Cheesy!)

  23. manda says:

    Yay! I’m so glad you posted. I was starting to worry! :)

  24. Mrs. Mustard says:

    I figured you were moving and I know what a pain in the ass that is. I’ll be going MIA in a few months time, too. Might be nice…maybe…

  25. Blue Momma says:

    I hope you are finally getting settled. Wish I was closer and I’d help!

    I haven’t been posting – or commenting – as much lately, but I have missed you. Come back and join us soon!

  26. VDog says:

    Yo gurl, I’ve been MIA myself. Hope you’re settling in well and hope to hear from you soon!


  27. Lora says:
