Hi. I'm Not Dead.



Imagine, if you will, that I am sheepishly poking my head into the room and waving a small, embarrassed hello. Cause that's what I'm doing in my head.

So, let's get the awkward explanations out of the way right off the bat. I was unexpectedly gone for a while.  A long while.  I'm not sure why, other than I tend to do that.  Fall off the face of the earth, that is. 

Nothing horrible happened, my family is fine. I'm fine. We're all fine.  I just needed a little break from blogging that I meant to last just through New Year's and now, well, it's freaking April.

Oops. My bad.

I get a little reclusive in winter...kind of like a crabby, hibernating bear. When I'm in that state, I feel like nothing I could write would be fun or funny or interesting and it all seems like way too much work anyway.  (Hmmm...depressed much, Jen?)  Yeah...if I'm being totally honest, I believe I do have a touch of Seasonal Affective Disorder. (It's a real thing. I swear. Go Google it.) But the sun is slowly coming out and the snow and ice are finally gone and I can feel myself coming back to the land of the living.

I live in the wrong part of the country, that's for damn sure.  I dream of living in Southern California someday where I hear they have things like plants and sunshine and temps above 7 degrees between the months of November and April and all the people there walk around feeling all superior what with the sufficient levels of vitamin D coursing through their veins and all. Hell, I could move to Southern Ohio and have less of a barren winter wasteland to contend with than I do here in the fair dairy state of my birth...

But, that's neither here nor there. I am back now and I can already feel my blogging mojo returning. Just the act of logging back into my account and dusting off the cobwebs has triggered a whole slew of future post ideas.  Thanks to all of you who stuck around and to all of you who subtly and not so subtly (I'm talking to you A) pushed me to get back into the game. And thanks in advance for being patient with me as I find my voice again.  

This post is definitely sub par but I have to just write something and slap it up there or I'll never be able to start again. I was just reading back some of my old posts and I was relieved to realize that I'm not as big of a no talent ass clown as I thought. So, there's hope for better posts to come. I promise. 

Incidentally, I've always wanted to work the phrase "no talent ass clown" into a post....Yes! I AM back!

See you all (very) soon!

XOXO,

YES! Welcome back my friend :). Even your self-proclaimed sub par post is Class A (and that "A" most definitely does not stand for ass clown! Haha). I am always happy to offer, as MommyCAR stated, a not-so-subtle kick in the pants! Love, A

Thanks! That means so much coming from you, your titles kill me! :)

When someone writes an article he/she retains the plan of
a user in his/her mind that how a user can know it.
Thus that's why this paragraph is perfect. Thanks!
