when i first decided to start my blog, i needed a hobby.
work wasn't engaging (plus i had one foot out the door),
chris was working ALL the time (insert murderous rage here),
and i didn't have anything to do with all of my free time.
so instead of drowning myself in wine, eating everything in sight, and getting totally lost in terrible tv,
as glorious as that sounds,
suddenly i had lots to do and didn't want to kill chris every time he came home late or worked on the couch all night.
i was writing and coming up with new ideas all the time,
saying whatever i wanted,
putting my life with chris out there in the open (some background on that),
and as cheesy as it is to say… it was exactly what i needed.
it helped me find 'me' again.
it made me reflect on how i felt or what was going on.
it shared all of my exciting news.
it found me friends.
and as much as i love my blog,
i just haven't needed it in the same way lately.
chris is here with me all the time,
we have a
completely insane puppy to chase around,
my job is exactly what i wanted to be doing and has really taken off,
i'm busy getting to know sf,
and i'm a lucky, lucky girl for all of my visitors and trips lately.
life is good and full.
i'm a happy girl.
this isn't a goodbye or anything - just some random thoughts!
i'm still trying to figure out where to take my little corner of the internet these days.
for anyone still out there who've had blogs for a long time, how did you do it?
is this a normal phase? or am i a lazy bum with a million excuses?
