Nearly two years have passed since I last published online.
I bit my nails as comments and messages piled up. Facebook reproached my torpor with endless shame-inducing notifications. Tweets and tumbles ceased. Everything online gathered digital dust, save for Netflix and Hulu.
The world forged on as I streamed another episode of Midsomer Murders and fiddled with Pinterest projects.
Why such apathy from someone who cares so much?
I ran out of spoons. My parent’s health and son’s education required my full and immediate attention.
I am resuming my blog because I enjoy documenting my life.
Putting it out there refreshes me, like opening a window in a stuffy home.
No manifestos here, just finding my footing, and returning to my original journal format—family stories and personal observations.
Join me while I play catch up and share posts long-queued to publish.
Be gentle with yourselves when crochet, crosswords and time wasters are the only palatable way to spend the last minutes of your day.
Most of all, do not be afraid to reconnect. Awesome people await you!
