The tool tip, when hovering over Windows Live Writer, says ‘My Blog’. Yup, it IS my blog. Lately, it hasn’t felt like my blog. It’s been an almost non-existent place. My blog is where I tell my stories, share my experiences or hop on an occasional soap box. I usually approach ‘My Blog’ with ideas in mind, words at my fingertips. My last post was back in September, the end of September. As far as I’m concerned, that’s a long time to go without an update. Maybe taking a short, unplanned, hiatus would go unnoticed by the two people that actually read this crap. Today, I was again reminded by one of those two people that I’m due for a post.
The typical adult excuse is that ‘life just got in the way’. Around the time of my last post I discovered that I was pregnant with my second child. I would have loved to write, but I spent half my time at work and the other half sleeping on the couch! I wanted to share my early pregnancy developments, but it was too early in the game. I felt compelled to tell the world that I have continued to run, not with the frequency or intensity as before, and I will maintain this as long as it feels good and I progress without complications. I want to brag about the fact that I haven’t fallen victim to the Whopper, Jr. (as I had during my first), but I find comfort in pepperoncini peppers. Life continued to move as Thanksgiving passed and the holiday season slapped me in the face.
And today, December 28th, a few days shy of a new year and exactly three months later, I opened my laptop and tried to write…about absolutely nothing. I’d like to say that I will resolve to post something at least twice a month, but life could get in the way again.
