Well, on the blog anyway. The house is another story.
Welcome back to anyone who hung around during my, um...sabbatical. Writing daily is really a habit. A habit I got out of on the long trip overseas for the film and a habit I am trying to get back into. Bare with me while I'm learning to juggle again.
So, the blog. New name, new banner, new layout, I'll soon be mapping to a new domain, but have no fear, you will find all the same fabulous content: Crazy shit my kids say, humorous observations on small town life, half-assed homesteading, recipes you can make with kids hanging on your legs, massive rationalizations, underdeveloped theories on parenting, and the occasional peek inside the life of an almost famous (hopefully) screenwriter.
You'll notice I've put up a navigation bar under the banner, too. That's where you'll find the archives, and how to subscribe (if you've long since purged me from your feed reader!) and how to contact me. I'm not doing any ads for now but who knows what the future will bring. There's also a page in the nav bar for all the various series I've done (Cheap & Easy, Comfort Foods, Organic on a Budget, etc), my Amazon Bookstore and a page with info about my movie, Hysteria.
I'm sure I will get around to posting about the trip but I'll just tell you now that it was wonderful, hard and long and we were all really glad to get back home and settle into our good, old, boring routine.
So have a look around, refamiliarize yourself with some of the old Toby Show favorites (in the side bar) and if it reminds you of why you checked in here first thing every morning (well, you know, after Dooce and SouleMama) then resubscribe to the new and improved Jonah Lisa Land.
It's spring in the mountains, so it's sure to be a good time for all (and I promise future posts won't have nearly as many parentheticals).
