Hello? Hello? Is this thing on?

It’s time to address the Big Elephant in the Blog – my not blogging. Perhaps that’s not the best metaphor. I’m actually rather scared of elephants. Nevertheless, I must state, at the beginning of this post, that I’m pretty certain that, due to complete blog silence, I’ve lost most of my readers (please, please come back!!!).

I’ve been absent from blog cyberspace for quite some time. I have a whole list of legitimate reasons, some of which are quite compelling and will elicit great sympathy from you, and some of which can be chalked up to general lameness, insecurity, and borderline laziness.

I have retreated into a protective cocoon of late. A myriad of issues including but not limited to, adoption delays, health problems, church stuff, getting a new job, and trying my best to be a mom and wife in spite of the toll these other things have taken, has compelled me to cut out things like creative writing and well, working out at all.

Thanks to the good news we’ve received with regard to our adoption – we get to pick up our son on July 1st! – and some medication (don't worry, I'm not dying), I’m feeling more emotionally and physically healthy and somewhat ready to brave the blank page once again.

So, if any of you are still out there, I'm gonna try and give the blog another shot. I promise to at least post more regular adoption progress updates and lots of pictures of our son after our July 1st court date. Stay tuned!


  1. Still reading :) Glad you are back!

  2. some of us die-hards are still here ;)


  3. I was wondering where you were and if you were ok. Thank you for the update!

  4. Hurray for the post! Can't wait to hear more about how the adoption is progressing.

  5. I have been missing you and I am so glad your back!

  6. Excited for the update and looking forward to meeting your son! :)
