I'm still here!

Yeah, yeah. I know. I haven't posted in nearly a month. It has been a pretty crazy month, however. My uncle whom I haven't seen in 8 year visited from Virgina. I've been sick, other family members have been sick. Works been crazy, in fact I think I've worked every single weekend since my last posting. Parent-teacher conferences. Co-workers being out for 2/4 weeks and me being in charge of taking over for them while they are out.

The list goes on and on doesn't it? Notice anything about the above list? It's real-life. Nothing really out of the ordinary. I could have even listed that our car is leaking coolant and will need major surgery to replace the head gasket, but that wouldn't really matter. What I see up there are a list of things that just happen to everyone.

The choice to stop updating the blog while the banana hit the fan was mine however. I could make up some excuse about how I literally didn't have the time, but I did. I chose to spend it other ways. I could have found a half an hour twice a week to squeeze in a really short but upbeat blog posting on some random topic, but instead I let it slip through the cracks as I dealt with real life.

Nothing wrong with this at all. To me writing is a hobby, and one that has to be set to the side for a while while I deal with other things in life. Like everyone else in this world, I have many other tasks, all pressing for my time. How we choose to spend them is ultimately what we'll accomplish in life.

So there ends my apology without apologizing. I'm still here, still kicking, still dreaming about writing, and still updating the blog.


  1. Yes yes life happens. Glad you are still kicking-JB

  2. Life does seem to happen everyday, huh? :) Hope everybody is well at your house now and the wave of busyness is past! It sure was good to have your family here for fall break. Our hike was especially good. You should come too next time!

    THANKS for letting us borrow your GPS! It was a life saver on our trip! They have really crazy streets back east and we would've been totally lost most of the time. We saw some really neat things. I'm so glad we made that trip 7 years ago, we were so ready to go back and see everything that we missed the first time!

    Have a fun Halloween! Take pictures & share! :)
