You don’t know whatchoo got ’til it’s gone

Hi folks. I have been away for a little more than a week but it feels like forever. I just wanted to give you a quick update.

I lost/dropped/wasn’t paying attention to my phone at the bus stop and it disappeared. I don’t know exactly when it happened. I just know that one minute I was putting it in my pocket to run for the bus and the next thing I knew, it wasn’t there. I’m a clumsy mofo, and I’m sure I probably just missed my pocket.

Anyhoots, I spent a week on a crappy older phone without the ability to post or take  pictures or anything. I also spent the week mourning the loss of the hundreds of food pics, including some intended for future posts, that were lost. On top of that, I was trying to pack and move in the middle of night classes and homework and the day job and….. phew!

With the help of a friend, I got a new version of the phone that was lost this week. I officially finished the move last night, and that means hopefully I’ll be back up and blogging by the weekend.  I’ve been thinking a lot about gratitude over the past week, because a really stressful and difficult week was made much, much easier to bear thanks to some incredibly lovely people I’m very grateful to call Friend, my new room mate, and some new neighbors who were kind enough to help make my move just a little less frustrating. So, my next post will be about gratitude, and ways to say thank you with food.

And thanks to those of you who always stick with me when I experience these little hiccups. 🙂

It means I’m now part of the No Kid Hungry blogging team, and I’m super excited to figure out how to make the No Kid Hungry campaign a regular part of things here. If any of you are planning to participate in or attend any No Kid Hungry events in your area, or on your blog, please reach out in the comments section and let me know how you think we can work together to increase awareness.
