Oh my! I'm sorry it's been so long since I've showed my face around these parts. I knew it had been a while, but I had no idea my last post was nearly two months ago.
So, back in February, I had a slight cold that progressed to an annoying cough that led to a week of feeling like crap followed by a visit to the ER finally earning me a not so luxurious, overly priced, three day stay in the hospital. Nice. I don't remember a time when I've felt so sick. I spent a lot of time away from the computer and the more time I was away, the less I worried about what I may be missing. The longer I stayed away, the better it felt. Like medicine for my soul. I've not read a blog since before I was in the hospital- unless you count looking up a Pioneer Woman recipe. It's been nice. There was a time when I would have thought it impossible. Give up blogs? Not a chance. Given enough distance, enough time away, and I realized that my blog reading habits had let more feelings of negativity into my life than I wanted. It had begun to make me feel like I wasn't measuring up. Like the blog world was taking off and I wasn't keeping up. Once I stepped away from the frenzy, I realized I don't want to keep up. I just want to live my life and write about it every now and then if I have the time. No self-imposed pressure to keep up with the imaginary Joneses.
So, I'll be around. I'm not sure when or how often, but I am sure playing with this nearly two-year-old peanut will come first.
