Yeah. Well, I took some time off. Had a bit of a blogging holiday.
Haven’t been posting or reading (sorry, friends).
I thought to myself, “Why not? Why have I eschewed this most noble activity?”
I’ll tell you why.
Life didn’t suck this summer. I actually had fun.
I realize in retrospect that most of my blog posts starting in late 2008 were the direct result of life going off the rails.
And wondering what God was going to do about it or to me.
My husband had heard it all, but I still needed an outlet. So here it was: my anonymous blog where I could blow off all I wanted.
But this summer was great. I didn’t work (at a job), but, instead, devoted myself to redoing our kitchen, bathroom, carpeting and other odd jobs which arose, in part, because of a toilet overflow last spring.
[An aside: amazing what damage water can do. I now have nightmares of toilets filled to the brim. They’ve replaced the “I’m on the way to an exam and never attended the course” stress dreams. See How Bad Can it Get?? Apparently Worse… for the sad story and Our Kitchen Saga for the result]
And I spent the summer living off of the home equity loan we used to do to the house what the insurance company didn’t — and TOTALLY DENIED THE FACT THAT THERE WAS A RECESSION GOING ON!
So, I had a great time.
No need to blog.
Now I am looking for a job
And guess what??
I have something to blog about again.
… to be continued …
