I think I saw my picture

on a milk carton in the bloggosphere... So, I figured I'd pop my head in and just say hi. I'm still alive. Just not feeling the blogging thing. At all.

I apologize for not reading and commenting. Although I do think of you guys a lot. I'm not really hiding... It's just Facebook is probably the most I can muster at the moment.

Chicklet and I had a wonderful trip South the first week of March.
Problem is, every time I come back I'm just sad.

I'm trying to organize my life. In doing so, I'm leaving some baggage behind. 

Coming out of a fog that started during mom's battle with cancer and really opening my eyes to many, many things and the nature of people and relationships.

I have a lot to think about still and I may start to write some of it down again. I don't know.

I appreciate all the kind wishes and sweet words on the Chicklet's birthday post. I truly do.

Remember to wear green tomorrow... or I'll have to pinch you and swat your butts with a shillelagh.

Hugs and smooches and gropes...

Maybe I want to get pinched;-)

Katman said...

Anndi...you don't need to apologise mate. We're all with you.

It isn't obligatory to blog regularly. Friends will always be around, even if you're offline for a while.....we're not going anywhere, are we?!

Take care

Dana said...

Oh, sweetheart. I have times like that too when it's all I can do to muster my energy up to check my e-mail before falling in the bed.

:hugs, kisses, and gropes:
