Confession: I don’t know how to start off a blog post after taking an unintentional month-long break.
How are ya?!
Boy howdy, it’s been a while!
Do I just ignore it?
I don’t know.
But, like a good friend, blogging just sort of falls back into a natural rhythm, picking up exactly where you left off.
I’d be lying to you if I said I took a month off from blogging because my life has been fantastic, and I was too busy with all the goodness of it all to find time to blog. That I was preoccupied with world travel, an influx in freelance work, or volunteering with needy children/making the world a better place.
Because none of that happened. Not even close.
I have a day job, and it’s been busy.
My weekends have not productive, as they majority of them have been spent on the couch watching Criminal Minds and The Killing (I swear I’m not a sick bastard, but I do love those types of shows.)
My aunt ended (I refuse to say “lost”) her battle with leukemia; it’s unreal how you can see death coming from a mile away, yet are still knocked out by grief when it finally arrives.
My mom made a visit to Richmond, I had dinners with Jamie and Emily, and we’ve finally trained Penny to stay off the new couches. We bought a new comforter, and have grand plans of painting our bedroom, but I have serious doubts. I got back on Facebook, de-friended the shit out of people, and now I know what’s going on in the world
And last but not least, I wrote a blog post.
