No Excuses, Just The Facts


I'm not going to make excuses for why I haven't been here. I'm a rut, and it is what it is. I've gotten a few e-mails asking where I've been so I thought I'd pop in and give you a little update...

It's summer and we've had guests, play dates, outings, a big 7th birthday to celebrate and we've been having a lot of fun! That being said I'm tired. I've been fighting depression for a while now and it's an exhausting process all around for those of you who have experienced the situation first hand.

My nurse practitioner has been fabulous about going through this with me. She gave me one medication that at first appeared to be working, but soon not so much. We recently decided to try another medication and this one appears to be working better, but it is still in the early stages. But one thing that has changed is that my muse is back! For a while there she had left me.

So what does that mean?

It means that late last week I went back to a story that I had written the first chapter to about a month ago. I started writing and it has just been pouring out of me. And you know what? I never think anything I write is good, but this story, this story really is! I've been writing every day and the story is just falling out on to the paper and I actually let two people read what I've written. They liked it too, so I feel like I'm on the right track!

That being said I've been busy with life and I'm really enjoying writing again. I'm also being inspired by all of the local fresh fruits and vegetables that are beginning to be available, so food will be back soon. My "garden" is doing well too, if I can keep the damned ground hogs out of my plants!

So bear with me, while I work things out. I'm here, I'm just lurking in the shadows for the moment.

I hope you all are having a fabulous summer! I am...Except for the heat of course! ;oP

If you're born to write, then keep it up. That's the main reason for starting my blog. It may not be what I've dreamed of writing, but it's writing that I keep current. I started panicking about age when I saw my first gray sprouts in my beard but the writing has eased my age panic.

Hang in there girlie! Sounds like you have had the best of help in getting better. I'm so glad you are writing. It certainly soothes the soul, much like good food! I've missed you and am so glad you are back. N

Gray hair? What are those? I don't have any of those! Nope, not me! That's my story and I'm sticking to it! ;oP

It's been very therapeutic the writing! I'm so happy with this story. It's just flowing out and I rarely think anything I write is good, but this is...I hope! ;oP
