The prodigal returns.
It's been a long time. I know, that's understating the obvious but it
has been a full year (and then some) since my last post. What
happened??? I don't know.
May, one year ago, I suddenly lost my blogging and my stitching
mojo. I think the first anniversaries of my Mother's final illness
and her passing may have had something to do with it. I lost my
joy in both of my once passionate hobbies and really didn't want to
do much of anything. Apathy is a terrible feeling and such a waste
After awhile those feelings faded but by then I'd been gone a long
time (it seemed to me) and I felt terrible about that and so guilty for
just up and disappearing. I didn't know how to return, couldn't think
what to say, and so I just let the time keep passing. I started stitching
a bit but it wasn't the same without my friends to share it with. And
so it went. More time passed. A new year came and I thought
perhaps that might give me the incentive (and the nerve) to make that
first blog post. New Years resolution and all that. Well obviously
that didn't happen. I dithered on.
So what's made me suddenly sit down here at the computer and
start typing?? I guess I got pissed off enough at myself and gave
myself a bit of a shake and a stern talking to and decided to put
my fingers on the computer keys and let the thoughts role out.
I've missed you! Yes, YOU! I've missed keeping an eye out
for pictures for my blog, picking books to rave about with you,
showing off my latest stitching project (such as it is) and looking
eagerly for any comments you may have left for me.
So here I am. I'm hoping you'll still be out there and willing to
come back to visit here. You have my permission to kick me or
yell at me or whatever you like because I feel that I deserve it.
But if you do take the time to come here and read this post and
come back again and again and forgive me for being such an
apathetic twit I'd be so grateful and thrilled.
Thanks for visiting and for reading this post.
