[100 things about me]

where oh where has my little blog gone?

i've been meaning to write for a while now. i actually sat down long enough to redo the logo up there and then i was getting ready to write and...i didn't.

and i'm sorry.

not in an "i apologize to you" kind of way, because you guys never make me feel obligated to write. and i appreciate that. but, it's more of a "i am sad i haven't written anything because i miss writing" sort of thing. and, i do miss you guys, too. really, i do.

i have stories to tell. stuff to say. and i'm just sorry i haven't been able to do that.

my life has been getting in the way lately.

i'm heading home for several days to be with my family. my family really needs me right now, and i realized that i've been putting my job and myself and my life first. too many things. too little time. too busy. too something. all the time.

i've been doing a lousy job of prioritizing. too much time doing the things i don't love, not enough time on the things i do. i miss my family. i miss writing. and i haven't been spending any time with either. instead i've been tap dancing in some ridiculous effort to not get fired from a job that doesn't reward or challenge me with an employer that doesn't value me.

yep. someone's priorities are definitely askew.

so, family first. then the writing.

then...everything else.

in the meantime, enjoy the archives, and thanks for stopping by. should have new stuff up on wednesday of next week. would love it if you'd come back then.
