I’ve had this nagging ache for the past few days.  The ache turned to anxiety.  What could be the cause of my distress?  The distress had an overlay of guilt that deepened every time I walked by this idle computer.  Yes, it was lack of attention to my blog.  How could I let it go unattended for so long?

For almost two years I’ve shared my musings and opinions with an unseen audience of friends.  Every few days I have been click clacking on these worn keys with a vengeance.  In turn my readers have commented and encouraged me to continue.  Then suddenly I abandoned them.

Sure I have some really good reasons.  I’ve been on vacation for eight days.  Before that I needed to prepare for the vacation.  Upon my return I needed to do catch up on the house cleaning and clothes washing.  My husband and son-in-law removed the broken dishwasher (yes it was not salvageable) and installed the new one.  For anyone who has replaced an appliance you know what an uproar the house is in for a couple of days. I needed to address that.  Outside some plants had dried up, had to be re-potted and dead headed because of the lack of attention during the heat.  Just some of the activity that kept me away from my comp.  These and other life events took an incredible amount of time.

Still reasons are not excuses and my nagging guilt became all-consuming tonight.  Here I sit too tired to relate any of my current adventures, but taking a moment to say to those who read and enjoy my blog, I’m back.  Within the next few days I’ll let you know what I’ve been thinking about lately.

To all my family, friends and followers, glad we had this moment.
