I'm back, baby!

The best things in life come back!

I have been unbelievably busy for the last few months, but I am back, baby!

The last few months for me have been insane. I was working like a maniac. I worked every day from 6am to midnight. I moved cities. My wife got pregnant with our second son (due in March). I have been away from Poligo for too long. All of this has been to set myself up to change to working full time on Poligo and The English Farm (my online school). We have lots of cool plans for Poligo, and now I have the time to put them into place! I am excited. I hope you are too.

I have lots of good stories to tell, and I will be writing my diary again from today. How have you all been? I am looking forward to reconnecting with you.

insane: crazy
maniac: a crazy person
do something like a maniacdo it very hard—so hard you must be crazy!
due: a baby is due on the day you expect it to be born
set [yourself] up: prepare yourself to be able to do something
put [something] into place: install or set up

Hi Mari,

It's nice to hear from you and so nice of you to say! We're really excited, but having a hard time thinking of a name (again!).

I hope your year is off to a flying start!
