If You Need Me...

It's been a rough few months.  I have to apologize as I have not been blogging as faithfully as I usually do.  Trystan and I are back home and he is doing well... much better than me.

Living in a hospital for almost four months taught me a lot about my life and choices.  I realized that I have a lot of great friends that I can depend on and trust but I also realized that some relationships, even in the worst of circumstances can not be rekindled.  I received well wishes from people whom I have only spoken to via this blog and Trystan received gifts from new friends and people whom I now consider extended family.

You were all so lovely when I posted about our stay in Portland.  Whether the post was about the terrible cafeteria food, finally finding the Starbucks, loneliness, or feeling helpless, my fellow bloggers offered support, encouragement, and advice.  Thank you.

I am trying to return to normalcy.  I am trying to make:  cleaning my house, cooking, and doing laundry a priority again and I am trying to get back into the swing of things at work.  I am trying to schedule blog posts and photo opportunities when truthfully, all I want to do is sleep and cuddle up on the couch. 

I spent four months with nothing to do so why is it so hard for me to get back to my life as I know it?  Why am I struggling?

It's crazy how one life event can change so many things.  It can realign your priorities, make you realize who you can rely upon, and show you how strong you can be.  I guess it doesn't really hurt anything if I take a few more days to return to normalcy.  If you need me, I'll be on the couch.


  1. You didn't have 4 months with nothing to do. You had 4 months of high stress. No wonder you're feeling some burnout. Take some time off, refill the well and recharge the batteries, if that's not mixing too many metaphors. Give yourself the gift of down time now, my dear!

  2. You SHOULD take some time to recharge. Your readers understand. Truth be told, we should all be focusing on our priorities and taking more "time outs" away from blogging. Hope you get some rest, and don't feel guilty for lounging. The laundry can wait...;)
