Has it been a year already?!?!?

Oh, yeah, I crack myself up.

Sorry, folks. I disappeared on ya. And it wasn’t really a good thing, either. You can see in my few posts from last year, things were in a downward spiral. I had to take a break … from almost everything.

It was a long haul. But I am better now. A lot better. Not pretend better. Not “faking it” better. Not waiting-for-it-to-get-better better. Just better.

I started thinking a few weeks ago that I really need to begin blogging again. It’s always so hard to restart, yet ultimately so worth it to me. Like exercise. It is exercise – for my brain and my spirit.

Of course, I did the diet thing: “I will start this weekend. Ok, I will definitely start on Friday when I get some free time. Nope, ok, for sure over spring break.”

A couple of days ago, I realized April was about to smack me in the face and I remembered the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge. Just like signing up for a weight loss support group, I had to do it. When I did it in April 2012, it was a real awakening for me. Hard, yes. Worth it, yes!

So, here I am. Starting again. That isn’t a bad thing. It’s just life.

P.S. I decided, too, that I needed to take the plunge and move my blog to WordPress. It has been on my “to do” list for five years. Really. So, I dove in head first, worked like a maniac all of last night and got ‘er done! There are some glitches, but I’ll be back later with duct tape and J.B. Weld and see if I can get ‘er patched up.

  1. I love your new look on WordPress. And, so glad you are doing the A-Z thing. Like you, I’m using this time to reconnect with my inner blogger, although I haven’t yet written one today. Time is a tickin’

  2. Good luck with your new blog and the Challenge! It has a lovely look. Our crocuses are blooming here now. Late this year, but still just as pretty.
