So, after the Great Server Malfunction of 2013 (oh man, let’s hope that was a one-time thing!), the blog is back up and running smoothly(ish–that IE compatibility problem is still there, but I’m working on it!). I gather that it was down for something like 17 hours, which feels like an eternity; but I have to remind myself that we live in an age of technological miracles. Letters, photographs and videos get sent nearly instantly across the world–from our phones! We sit in chairs in the sky, incredibly, and fly across continents in hours (anyone else love that Louis CK bit?). It’s okay if occasionally things break and need to be fixed. Oh man, let’s hope it’s fixed!
I wanted to thank everyone who offered to help (or commiserate!) while the site was down. Your support is so tremendous and I truly appreciate it!
So, I promised an update. It was my daughter’s 6th birthday yesterday (I seriously can’t believe she’s SIX already!). I brought paleo cupcakes into her class (this recipe for anyone who is interested-I stretched the recipe to 30 cupcakes so we had the leftovers for cake after supper too) and only 2 of 20 kids didn’t devour them. I successfully stuck to my autoimmune protocol 21-Day Sugar Detox all day (which means I didn’t even lick my fingers when they got covered in whipped chocolate ganache frosting while frosting cupcakes at the same time as I cradled the phone while on hold with tech support from my webhost!). And, although I did indulge in seven strips of comfort food bacon at lunch time, I felt much better afterward and do not regret it (I was feeling very woe is me until that point, so it was nice to feel like I can eat yummy food). So, now that the Great Server Malfuntion of 2013 is behind me (knock on wood!), I can once again focus on what I’d far rather be doing: creating content!

I also promised a teaser. I’m going to be making a VERY BIG announcement in a week and a half. I’m so excited to share this with you all! That’s all you get for now, but I promise more (and better) teasers as the week goes on…
