So, it’s been a while since I’ve posted here. Months to be exact. You see, I’ve stumbled across a bit of a problem or maybe it’s problems?…writer’s block, distraction, raising my boys, volunteering and even joining a women’s Bible Study (which will be a whole other post on its own). I’ve also sat back and begun evaluating my blog. Do I want to keep it? Are the words I’m writing entertaining, spiritually rejuvenating, educational, or just plain fun anymore? I mean, who actually reads these words? Who takes time out of their busy days to read my humdrum, my stories of dysfunction and insanity? Who? I have no earthly idea, but I’m back.
I’m back because I need this outlet. I need this place where I can complain, brag, whine, and just plain disgust everyone with the stories of my life and that of my children. I need the release. I need the feeling that someone else feels me, that someone else sits at their computer, reads my words, and says, “I feel your pain” or “I’ve been there before” or “your child really is the spawn of satan.” Yes, even that last one I need to hear.
I’m back because for a while my only thing to look forward to was writing, sharing my adventures, misdeeds, and disasters with you all, and then I left that fall to the wayside. The only thing I started looking forward to was my cocktails in the evenings, which isn’t always bad. I’m back because I feel like I’m becoming ignorant to the world around me, that my children are continuously sucking me dry of any brain cells. I’m back because I need to feel like there are other adult voices with which I can communicate even if it’s just through the written word. I’m back because I need you all and I need to feel that you’ve missed me, that you’ve questioned at least once where I was. Yes, I do have a bit of a narcissistic personality.
I’m not sure where to start anymore with my blogs. I’ve sat back and attempted to revive my blog, to find new things that will compel people to come to me, to read me, but I’m drawing a blank. After all, how many mom blogs are out there these days? Hundreds. Thousands. Millions. Perhaps more than that, I mean if I haven’t had the time to sit down and write then Lord knows I haven’t had the time to research the number of mom blogs out there. So, what do you all want from me? What makes you come to me? What makes you miss me? What do you want to read about? It’s not a rhetorical question. I REALLY WANT TO KNOW!
I can give you a teaser of what’s to come…my volunteer work with a wonderful cancer alliance and my new roles there, my two children and how dramatically different they are with school and my pains with how to get one to progress, and then my latest adventure that I’m super excited about…a Women’s Bible Study.
So, stay tuned. I am back. I NEVER really left, at least not in my heart and mind, and I’m hoping that 2017 will bring on my best blog to date. I might even learn a bit more about WordPress and make this site super groovy (sorry. I was on a bit of a Brady Bunch binge watching kick today).
