I completely forgot to check in here and then things kept getting busy and I couldn't come back. Things have quieted down a bit for me now since moving again. I'm now living in another country in a rural country area with a more relaxed lifestyle. I'm looking forward to being able to finally make a return here where I won't have ot disapear in one or two weeks. Future plans include buying or building a greenhouse for growing tomatoes and other plants and finishing a second degree in college. Hope everyone is doing well! :)

Welcome back, Boy Scout, and congrats on becoming an Eagle Scout! That's quite an accomplishment.

Sounds like you've been busy, HyperWing, and I'm glad you've stopped by too. I look forward to seeing you around the forum this summer.

Good to see you again, Boy Scout! How cool you're heading to university this August. May I ask what your major will be?

Your thoughtful and reminiscing words brought me goosebumps of thankfulness once again for this forum.

Drop by again when you're able!
:D

Okay, so I've been gone a while. Just a few - what is this, Wednesday? - years. During which time life has been up and down, and everything in between. But you guys got me through some of the worst years of my life and I've never forgotten that.

So, to get to the point, I'm back!

Anne! So good to see you on NarniaWeb again!! :D I was just thinking about you the other day and wondering how you were doing!

I'm glad to know that NarniaWeb was there for you during some rough times... I know it's been a haven for many people over the years, myself included. :ymhug:

Btw, I finally read LotR for the first time this year and I am now able to perceive the full awesomeness of your username. ;))

Great to have you back on the forums now that SC is getting going... it's going to be a fun time on NW! :D

Hey, you all!

It's been a while! The last time I posted was in 2014!

Anyway, last time I posted, I had gotten married. We've now been married almost five years! Since then, I've finished my college degree, my husband and I moved to another area of Alaska, and I worked for two years in my field. We then both quit our jobs about a year ago and moved, I got pregnant, and we now have an almost four-month-old daughter! I'm now a stay at home mom doing a little bit of work in my field from home.

It's nice to "see" everyone and I hope you all are doing well!

Hey, narnian_at_heart! :) Good to hear from you again! Life sounds like it has been very full for you of late, but very good. Congratulations on the birth of your daughter!!! :D How wonderful! Congrats also (albeit very belated) on graduating from college. :) May I ask what your field of work is?

Thanks for stopping by with the update! :)

@narnian_at_heart, hello again! :D Welcome back, and congrats on the baby! I feel like so many NarniaWebbers are young parents now (or in my case, an older parent with young kids hahahahaha!) Once upon a time I started a Kids thread here in the SO, but I think most NarniaWebbers that are parents just don't have a lot of time to post anymore so it never has traffic. But if you're ever bored (hahahahaha!) feel free to post about your baby. :D

@checkers! Hello to you as well :D Congrats on surviving school and your job sounds amazing! It's fun seeing familiar faces pop in again after being gone for so long, but I guess that's what happens when some fresh Narnia news surfaces.

@fantasia_kitty, I've literally been trying to break into this account for aaaages but the email address I signed up with doesn't belong to me anymore. 8-| The Netflix news got me to try guessing my password one more time and it was something super obvious and I felt like an idiot. :|

Thanks for the warm welcome friends, this place is giving me so many good memories. <3

So nice to see some old faces back on NarniaWeb! Welcome back, narnian_at_heart_ and checkers! :-h

checkers, your struggles with remembering your password couldn't help but remind me of the trouble of trying to get back into Narnia when you're looking for it... ;))
