The Time of My Life

  1. shana says:

    I wasn’t about to send you an angry email or anything but I did think to myself yesterday…where has that Lindsey gone! Glad to see you back here!

    • suburbanturmoil says:

      Ha! Well, I know how you feel, because I STILL haven’t gotten over certain bloggers quitting back in 2006 and 2007! But I promise, this hiatus was only temporary.

      • I asked after you on FB, and definitely understood THEN read about your Stepmom and couldn’t fathom how you carried on with such grace in the face of family tragedy. You ARE an inspiration and although I’m sure it’s quite against the “rules” would love to know how you’re actually feeling about who’s on the right side of the fence in this campaign! I had to ask…I know you can’t answer…

  2. Keryn Ross says:

    I have missed you this summer, as well, but I figured with the political campaigns heating up, and all your dares, and the little people in your house, and all–well, I’m glad you’re back!  And I’m very sorry about your sweet stepmother.  

    (And I will admit to cheering a little inside when I saw your post about Sally Hansen nail stickers on The Stir yesterday.  She’s (Back and) Still Got It!)

    • suburbanturmoil says:

       Thank you, Keryn! I needed a fashion break- I wasn’t thrilled with the clothing over the last few seasons. I’m just now starting to get excited again about the fall season, so I think that will benefit everyone! 🙂

  3. Good Lord, woman. Did you have time to breathe, or think, or sleep, or be still at all? Holy cow! I thought I was busy, but you have put me to total shame! So proud of you- xoxoxo

    • suburbanturmoil says:

       I could never maintain this pace. It was sort of the summer of a lifetime. And I think about how busy you are all the time! 🙂

  4. Laura Lohr says:

    WOW! That’s some summer you’ve had!  What a ride!  You’re had some amazing adventures. Glad you survived and enjoy your empty September calendar.

    P.S. I think people were angry because they missed you and needed your inspiration. 🙂

  5. Cheekylotus says:

    I love you and I’m proud of you! And I owe you a phone call. 🙂 Aaand next year can you bring face powder to our party for me in your purse? Hahhaha

  6. bereccah5 says:

    That is just so so amazing! I’m very proud of you and all your hard work. 🙂

  7. LAR Family says:

    I’m so amazed at all you’ve been able to do! You’ve been missed in this space, though, and I’m glad you’re back. Although I have to admit, I’ve spent less this summer without your posts on where all the good sales are. 🙂

    I’m anxious to hear more about your Quebec trip; my husband and I went there last summer for our 20th anniversary and LOVED it. Whale watching was the biggest highlight for me, and I thought the old part of Quebec City looked like it belonged in Disney World, it was so perfect.

    • suburbanturmoil says:

       I can’t wait to write about it. I was dubious about leaving Quebec City, but the countryside ended up being our favorite part of the trip.

  8. Jessica Ashley (Sassafrass) says:

    I am so proud of you and inspired by you and laughing, crying and gasping along with you. Here’s to you…and to Hot Pockets. xoxo

    • suburbanturmoil says:

       Thanks, Jess! I’m so proud of all of YOU’RE doing! It’s great to see so many of my “mom blogger” friends achieving their dreams this year.

  9. yeah welcome back!  such an interesting summer you’ve had!!

  10. NancyB says:

    Whew!  what a whirl-wind summer!

    I’ve missed you and have been looking forward to the return of this blog in particular.  I’ll have to go back at my leisure and make sure I’ve watched all of the I’ll Take That Dare videos.

    Welcome back!

  11. Robyn says:

    I know that bend in the street from Old Quebec, I adore it there. I am a working Mom myself, and have absolutely no idea how you pulled all that off. You are incredible, kudos to you!

  12. Oh my word, Lindsay! I am tired just reading all of this 🙂 I am so glad you’re back, and I just wanted to let you know that I will be here to read even if your next post isn’t for a year. And, I promise, no angry emails 😉

  13. Margaretmbarney says:

    Well, I need a vacation reading all that you have been up to!!

    But, seriously? You are one hell of a woman with so much to tend to. It sounds exhilarating, and fabulous and just overflowing with new people to connect with and such wonderful opportunities for you to showcase all that you have to offer. Cheers, big hugs and a toast to you–you are inspiring!

  14. Amy says:

    I am glad you are back. I missed your posts.

  15. Knewman4 says:

    Great to hear about your incredible summer! I’m sorry we didn’t have a chance to meet up in PA. I heard you say in your Reading piece that the state budget was slashed b/c stimulus money dried up, and that is just not the whole story! If you ever get a chance to work on PA education stuff again I would urge you to look at our blog about the PA ed budget,

  16. Natasha P. says:

    Look forward to reading more about all of your adventures! 

  17. Sara says:

    Sorry you got hate mail. I have missed your posts, but I figured you had important things going on. I am glad you are back! You have been a busy lady! Take care or yourself.

  18. Sally Rogers says:

    I’ve missed you terribly, but am so glad for you!  Welcome home!

  19. Jasmine Jim says:

    So glad to have you back!  I figured you were busy working on exciting projects. It’s wonderful to hear the child rearing duties are being equally distributed. I hope to achieve the same one day. I ‘m very sorry to hear about the sudden death of your stepmother. Losing a family member is terrible and when it happens suddenly is even more so devastating. I wish you and your family peace in your time of sorrow.

  20. Miss B says:

    The reading of Fifty Shades of Grey is hilarious. I’ve never read any of the book since I’m not into smut or terrible writing, but this is brilliant! I sent the video to my book club gals. Granted, I’m a good 20-30 years younger than all of them, but I know they will think it is funny too. Frankly, I think we ought to hold a special meeting and do our own dramatic readings. It might just be too hot for youtube!

  21. Angiedawn28 says:

    i’ve just skimmed this post, but OMG-Bruiser has grown up- he almost looks like a little man and not a boy.

    glad you have you back!

  22. Mary A says:

    That makes me tired.
