I've really enjoyed blogging. I've met the kindest people. I've learned so much (I'm talking about blog reading here, too). I've been able to keep track of little anecdotes, my recipes, my projects. What a great community to be a part of.
While I have found that I have many cyber friends, only two of my flesh friends probably read this and from my family, I think only Jeff, my mom and sister, Missy, check in on me. I don't know why that is. I love reading my friends' blogs. I'd be tickled if any of my family members had blogs.
Lately, I think I've blogged to pass time. More action than doing. I think it has been a means of escape. I have had a tendency to go through bouts of depression since Aidan's last surgery and my own health issues in the last year and I know when I get anxious, I empty my mind by surfing.
I had the day alone today to listen to a little Springsteen, work on some sewing projects, and to think about what I want to accomplish this summer and how I can resolve some unresolved things in my life. One of my easy answers is to spend less time on the computer. Since I can easily get caught up in anything on the Internet, I think a couple less excuses for going on it will help me with this break.
I'm sure I'll check in from time-to-time to read blogs and to blog myself, I just think that from now until Labor Day, it will be much less.
I look forward to sharing with you again soon. Until then, I will delve into my quest for good health, happiness, and peace. I wish the same for you.
