Ouch. I just looked at the date of the last blog post: August 23.
Where have I been since the end of the summer, you may ask? Well, I've been in big cities, the wide-open ranches of Texas, the South right at the end of the Civil War, Las Vegas, Boston, the Canadian mountains, prison in California, planets out of our solar system, San Fransisco, small towns, a world of zombie and alien invasions at once. I've been hanging out with lovers and fighters, losers and winners, people struggling to find themselves or find each other, people with a mission, and people searching for meaning.
In other words, I've been in books. But I've also had some real-life stuff going on. My son graduated from college, moved to DC for a few months, came home, moved to Denver. I worked on my annual Basket Bonanza fundraiser (thanks to everyone who donated!), as well as some other church projects. I've had some great fun with the hubby at a water park. I've had some great results with a new workout/food program (lost almost 20 pounds!). And I've started taking swimming lessons (no, I never learned to swim when I was kid.)
But I haven't blogged. Why? Well, yes, all that other stuff kept me busy. But I've felt like I didn't have much to say, for some reason. Not much motivation to write (thank goodness writing's not my job!). But I do hope that changes. I like to write, when I have something to say.
So for now I'll say Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Happy Holidays...or maybe a simple hello and I'm thinking of you!
