i'm back

Thank you, first of all, to all who wished me well during my little time away. Though I don't know if I am at full recovery (because I'm a little wacky anyway, so I'm probably just normal for me), I do know that I feel much better. Part of that could be due to the fact that RL came home this week! (WaHoooooo!)

There's just been a lot of stuff going on in my head and blogging just became something else I felt I had to do. What fun is that? My Mom used to tell me I should've gone into web design, but I knew if I did it wouldn't be any fun anymore. Even if I could've possibly made all kinds of money, I knew if it became something I had to do, I probably wouldn't want to do it at all.

The stress of blogging seems silly, but finally having an audience to write to was so important; I didn't want to let anyone down. I felt I owed it to my readers to have something even remotely interesting to read. But this little break has given me the rest I needed and helped me get some perspective on this particular hobby of mine.

I'm going to make some changes. Some obvious changes and others, not so much. But the main thing is I am going to have fun with this and let it be an outlet instead of a monkey on my back.

So, how are things with you?

Yeah, I can understand that. These here blog things can really turn into a monkey on your back if you take 'em too serious. Relax and enjoy it for you. Believe it or not we'll hang around either way!

Glad to have you back.

Fresh paint job for a fresh outlook, eh? Works for me. . .

I know what you mean about the stress of blogging. I experienced something a lot like that when I was blogging. But I tended to resolve the 'pressure' by putting time/energy and 'brain space' into the blog, at the expense of things (like my kids, and my job) that really should've taken precendence. Hence my current status as Former Blogger and Comment-Space Gadfly. . .

Glad you're back! I understand what you said about the blog getting stressful. That's how I felt a few months ago when I took a break too.

I love your new template!
