The blog was felled by a move, a remodel and several retreat weekends in a row where I was speaking.
I had decided the blog could wait.
The blog had to wait.
Then I decided the blog could die because no one really read it and I could remember the things I wanted to remember without writing them down (that is HILARIOUS that I thought that because I can’t remember much of anything right now).
But yesterday when I was dropping off Savannah at her piano lesson a mom/friend who I rarely see told me she enjoyed chuckling at the blog and that laughter was just what she needed during a stressful day at work.
AND Y’ALL KNOW I LOVE TO LAUGH.
It’s a hobby of mine.
(I’ve heard it uses up calories too which means I should be laughing more … tell me something funny people!!!).
Then at the bus stop this morning my new neighbor (whom I love!) asked me when I was going to post again and right then and there I thought … well, today … today I am going to post.
And truth be told, this whole remodeling thing has felt VERY lonely. VERY. I think in part because I was used to going to see college students two days a week, played tennis sometimes and saw friends more regularly. I need social time and as social as it has gotten (other than the retreats which were wonderfully refreshing for me) … is talking to Marty the carpenter and Solomon the contractor.
Every day I talk to them. We joke and laugh and sometimes it’s stressful. I know many of the workers at the Great Indoors and several at Lowe’s.
These are now my people.
I even took their picture the other day … I always tell them they are my first dinner guests!
But I miss my old friends. I missed the blog. And so here we go again.
Tomorrow I will show you the first before and after of the house.
