9 years and 6 months

My blog is 9 years old today, and it’s been 6 months since I’ve written in it. I find both of those time frames amazing.

I used to write in Snippets and Tidbits all the time. Now, I can’t seem to find the time to read a book, make my bed (who wants to do that anyway) or get regular exercise. So, what changed?

I do sleep more than I did. I was told caffeine wasn’t really my friend and to go with the natural flow for sleep with the goal to get a good solid 8 hours. And I decided to take a bit of time in the morning for meditation/reflection, which is good for me. But it seems these self-care health changes have impacted others. I used to get up and go for a walk, but now I’m sleeping in. I know the thought is to go to bed earlier, but 10 is early enough, and during the work season, I don’t get home until then anyway. In any case, I guess it’s a matter of priority. You can always make time for something you feel is a priority.

When I do find the time to sit down, I seem to have “lost my voice”. For a while there were things going on that I wanted to write about, but felt I couldn’t. When I could write about them, I didn’t want to anymore. I didn’t want to give the subject more power. And I didn’t feel, “I got up, ate food, worked, did chores and went to bed.” merited a blog post.

Over the last six months, I’ve certainly had a few things to write about. I’d like to find my “voice” again and exercise my sense of humor and blogging brain again.

Let’s start with a generic update, and I hope I can expand from there in future blogs.

M turned one and is now 18 months old. She’s amazing!

Work continues to grow and evolve .

We sold our BIG house and are living in a much smaller home.

We went on tour to England and Scotland. Hubby and I went to the Highlands after the tour group left, and I continued on to Ireland.

I guess those would be the highlights.

So, yeah… kinda boring post, but… it’s a post, and that’s a start.


I believe you make your own reality whether good or bad. Thus, my favorite saying is, "Say what you mean and mean what you say."

Well, Sharon, if you wanna know what I think....
