Bear With Me

You might remember that about a year ago....yes, a YEAR ago (don't judge!) we decided to take a break here at The Art of Being Conflicted.  I had come to the realization that I have a  personality that takes the "Go Big or Go Home" approach to all things I enjoy doing. This often translates to nothing else getting done.  You realize, of course, this tendency to let an activity take over my life is limited only to things I enjoy.  (usually these activities don't require much exertion.) It did apply to blogging. That led me to the point of taking some time off to readjust my time and priorities. 

Remember this? 

BUT here we are....Crabby is ready to get off the bench and is officially done with the whole "smelling the roses" thing. 

blogs don't write themselves
As for the year might be curious about all the wonderful, exciting things I managed to accomplished with all that time I saved by NOT immersing  myself in blog reading and writing.

In theory, I should of had "oodles" (technical term) of time that I could now reinvest in the pursuit of other activities.
With all that being said....I can't think of anything that stands out as being NEW and EXCITING. My life continues to be a very  good life and nothing has really changed.  Sure, I have been  spending less time in front of a computer which has allowed far more time with family and friends and that point can't be diminished in it's importance but still... I didn't take on the any amazing feats.

 I can't think of anything really that rates as "truly astounding" or affords me  material for a major best seller extolling my amazing accomplishments.  I have more material pertaining to the things I DIDN'T do.
I didn't end up in (or under) any of the Kansas floods.  My house DIDN'T wash away. (knock on soggy wood) although I shouldn't count that out yet.  The rain is continuing to pour in the Midwest.
I, also didn't BLOW away.  I realize that many of you think...
                                       Kansas = Tornadoes
Not necessarily. 

In the past year, I  haven't climbed Mount Everest or any other mountain for that matter.

AND, while this one might shock you...I didn't receive any major writing awards.

So as you can surmise, my friends, life is going along fine, if not a bit uneventful. 

I will wean myself back onto blog (both writing and reading) and try to use a bit of discretion in the amount of time I spend doing it.
