fonder. Or elsewhere. I hope you haven't all gone elsewhere. I didn't mean to take a break from my blog. It's just that things got a bit busy and before I knew it, it had been a few days, and then I couldn't think of anything to write about, and then it got to be a week, and then I thought, well, I better come up with something good because it's been a whole week. And then it was 10 days, and I thought, well, now I really need to come up with something good so these people don't think I've been sitting around, reading books, eating yogurt covered raisins and letting my house and kids go to pot.
It's like the "Cathy" cartoon I used to read years ago. Her boyfriend comes by and says, "Let's go out," and she says, "Okay, but let me freshen up a bit." And for the next eight frames she's changing clothes, putting on makeup and realizing that it's been 10 minutes, then 15, then 20, and as the time passes she's panicking that it's been so much time, she better look REALLY good because she's been in the bathroom so long, so she's re-doing her makeup, washing her hair and after an hour and a half. . . well, you get the picture.
I guess blogging is like exercising. Once you take a break, it can be really hard to get back into it. Except, from what I'm told, with exercise, you really start to miss it. So far, that hasn't happened. I take a break and I never miss it. But I do miss blogging. And during the past week and a half I've been writing posts in my head. But just like when I just think about doing sit-ups and going for a walk, I don't have much to show for it in the end.
So, for better or worse, I'm back!
