I haven’t been able to sleep for days. Well, at least sleep past 5:00 a.m. I’m just so excited about life. It’s summer and I’ve been traveling and even have a few more trips on my agenda. I’m married to a wonderful, fine-looking, cooking man. My kids are happy, healthy and (mostly) a pleasure to be around. I got a new red bench from France. Life is good.

And then there’s this. Starting on Monday, I’m embarking on something beyond my wildest imagination. I’m going to be blogging for CafeMom’s The Stir. Five days a week. For their Love & Sex channel. (That part’s not really a surprise.)

For those who do not know, CafeMom is a social networking site for moms. The Stir, CafeMom’s blog, is described as “if you’ve somehow managed to snag an hour to meet your girlfriends for a cup of coffee – and finally have a moment to chat, uninterrupted!” Doesn’t that sound like fun? The site has some really great content. Informative, humorous and wide ranging. Some of their other channels are Healthy Living, Beauty & Style and parenting at different ages (Baby, Toddler and Big Kid).

I’m still going to be writing Life’s Dewlaps. There are plenty of thoughts in my head to go around. And I’m even going to make a few changes to my blog. Adding some new content, highlighting some of my new favorite things and even going a little literary on you.

In the meantime, check out The Stir. And then start looking for me there on Monday. Don’t worry; I’ll remind you via Facebook, Twitter and email. You might be surprised by what I write. You might even learn something. At the very least, as always, you’ll be entertained.

And hopefully, in the next week or so, I’ll get some sleep.
