I'm baaaaaaaack.....


Remember me?

Okay - so I kind of disappeared for awhile. Unexpectedly. And for that, I'm truly sorry. (Heck, what am I saying... I bet you didn't even miss me!!)

My life has changed a lot over the last year, and as therapeutic as this blog had been, I think I just needed a break - some time to clear my head. Plus, I became so consumed in reading umpteen million blogs a day - it kind of lost its appeal.

But I've missed having an outlet for my thoughts, so... here I am. Back again.

If you're reading this, thanks for hanging in there... I guess that means you didn't unfollow me just because I bailed for a while. There are at least two possible explanations for that: 1) You had complete faith that I would one day return; or the much more likely 2) You didn't even realize I had quit posting. Either way... hello again.

I hope you all have a very merry Christmas. And I'll be seeing you soon :)

Everyone needs a break now & then! Welcome back, I hope you're keeping well :)

Dan said...

You left off the third possibility - that we knew you were gone but just figured you were on a lazy trip down the Amazon river with no electronics. {*grin*}

Trudy said...

I figured you'd be back Heather! Glad to 'see' you too. Hope you had a nice break, we all need them from time to time!

Have a very Merry Christmas and God bless you!

Aw yeaah! You're back!! I really enjoyed reading your blogs and once you disappeared I was a little worried... But glad that you're ok now and that you've taken a break from the craziness that life brings us. :) Merry Christmas to you too!

Matthew said...

Glad to see you back!

Missy said...

Yep! Noticed that you were gone and glad you are back! What have you been doing during this break?

H.K. said...

Welcome back! Everyone needs a break and blogging should be a hobby, not a job, so take it easy on blogging and just read & post whenever you want.

Merry Christmas!

Kitten said...

Welcome back! I, too, noticed your absence. I went to click on a post one day and couldn't access it. I got worried!

I know EXACTLY what you're going through with respect to posting...in fact, I'm going through it right now. There's nothing bad going on, I'm just all blogged out for now.

That, and the holidays have kept me TRES busy!

Anyhoo, glad you're back and alive! See ya in the blogosphere! :)

welcome back!

I'm glad you are back ... I missed you. I was worried that something horrible had happened to you but then (as you know) I inquired about you via Diana and was relieved to find you were OK -- despite the loss of Toby. I'm glad you decided to come back ... just do what YOU want and don't get caught up in all of the blogging ridiculousness that can grab hold of all of us at times.

Welcome back and you should only do things that make you happy. Life's too short to do things you should enjoy but feel are an obligation.

You're back! I thought you were gone forever! Hey, I didn 't get the chance to mention it before you disappeared before, but our college's football teams both play in the Sunbelt. Dumb ole' Troy beat my Ragin Cajuns in the last home game of the season. :(

Dan Felstead said...

Heather...! I have been happily noticing your comments again on the blog and thought I would check back and lo and behold you are here again!

Welcome back! I have read all of your post up to today (the 6th) and it looks like you have been busy! That is neet that you have made contact with an old friend...good luck with that! If you want it ti..hope it goes somewhere.

I know what you mean about the blogging world taking over your life...it has a tendency to do that. I had to cut back on leaving so many comments as well...it had gotten to the point that it was taking the best part of a day just to keep up.

Keep the faith with the bitter cold...it will pass...I hope!

I only found out you're back now (12 Jan 2010) but I'm happy to "see" you again, Heather!
