The Daily Toki is back in business! First, I want to say how much I’ve missed blogging, and connecting with all of our friends and readers. Miss Toki has been a little sad too. She likes getting her picture taken. (Not really . . . but she’s a good sport about it 🙂 )
I’ve gotten emails and Facebook messages from several of my blogging buddies, and I want to apologize for the radio silence. So . . . what have we been up to in the five months? I hope I didn’t scare anyone with my last posts, where I mentioned that I was feeling “sick as a dog”. It was all true, but for a good reason. Miss Toki is expecting a new sis – and not the doggy kind!! I had extreme morning sickness starting in November . . . and I spent most of that month bedridden and miserable. I didn’t feel up to doing much of anything until about mid-January. So I have about 3 or four months of unanswered email that’s still piled up in my inbox.
As you can see, it’s all good news, but lots of changes too! Toki has been taking it all in stride. And she’s had the chance to spend a lot more time with Josh during the past months. But now that I’m feeling more peppy, I know she’s itching to have some more big adventures.
In fact, this brings me to my second piece of big news. Josh, Toki and I are moving back east! Josh and I have spent 8 years in Southern California, and Toki was born here. We love the bountiful sunshine, raw wilderness, and big mountains of our adopted state, but we’re looking forward to the new adventures on the horizon. We’re moving to Ohio (my native state), where Toki will get to try her hand at the country life. (Any tips – City Dog/Country Dog?)
We’re planning our cross country move in mid-April. I will be taking the train, and Josh and Toki will be trucking it on the interstate. So I look forward to re-connecting, and to sharing our adventures to come. It’s going to be a wild ride . . . but I know Toki is up for anything.
