Checking In

So ... here's a first for me.  I'm not going to apologize for not having written in so long.  I mean ... don't get me wrong ... of course I feel bad if you've been waiting for my next post.  Of course I wish I'd written more often.  But you haven't just been waiting around, have you? No ... you've been living.  And over the last month or two, though there were a number of things that I wanted to write about, I just didn't have the time.  You see, I've been so busy doing things that I just didn't have a minute (or a few hours) to sit down and write about them.

In the past, when I went for a while without writing here, it was usually because things were going poorly for me.  I was upset, hurt, frustrated, depressed, sick, angry, stressed (or all of the above).  I've always said I wanted to keep this blog positive, and when I didn't know how to write about all that without bringing you down too, I just ... didn't.  So I guess I shouldn't have been surprised when I got an email from a friend who was worried when I hadn't written in so long.  But this time it's different.

It's actually been a pretty good month or two since I last wrote.  My heart was repeatedly warmed by the caring thoughts and deeds of others.  Hubby and I went on vacation and had an incredible time doing ... everything!  We're getting into the crazy busy season at work, but since I love what I do, I (mostly) don't mind the late nights and weekends.  I've been getting work done on my latest tattoo, and it's becoming bigger and more beautiful than I'd imagined it would be.  Yes, I'm still dealing with medical crap: we're adjusting meds, and I'm still a mess, but we are making progress.

I'm not going to delve further into all of that right now, though.  It's not that I don't want to bore you with the details - I really do (well, I hope I won't bore you, but I do want to give you the details).   Just ... not right now.  When I have a little time, I'll definitely write more.  For now, I just wanted to check in and say ... I'm doin' okay ... and I hope you are, too!
