Hello? Hello? Is there anyone out there?

Hello? Hello? Is there anyone out there?

Wait, hang on, this song just came to mind even though the words aren’t quite the same:

Wow you guys! This is the longest blogging break I’ve taken since I started blogging in 2011. I thought it would only be the month of April but then when the beginning of the month rolled around, I wasn’t ready to come back yet.

Not because I don’t miss everyone, because I do…and I can’t wait to see what everyone has been up to, I was crazy busy doing some great stuff and I didn’t want to stop! I know so selfish of me.

What great stuff? Well, we welcomed another grandchild into the family. Amazing! Which means more time with my first grandchild so mom and dad can try to catch up on sleep. Yeah right! Sleep! What’s that?

I’ve been writing. Not marathon writing. Just here and there when the mood strikes me. I’ve been doing recovery work and volunteering. I also started a podcast. I’ll talk more about that next time.


Then there was the time I went to the beach the first week in May…before noon…and managed to get a sunburn. Either I’m changing or the sun is getting closer. At least I was able to enjoy it. That’s all I really cared about. And seeing crabs. And feeling the sun. And the sand. And the seagulls. Ah, beach weather, I’m so happy you’re here!!

And a total side note: yesterday marked two years that I’ve been at this website!

What’s the best thing that happened to you in April or May?
