My Blog

My blog…
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.
What gives? 
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.
