I still can't believe it's been eleven months. I have thought often of my poor, neglected blog, and thought about how to jump back into blogging regularly. And then I thought of how to explain my absence, and all the updating I would "need" to do...
Because my children's photos on the sidebar are about two years old now...and various links need to be redone or removed...and I haven't had short hair in a few years so my profile photo would need to be updated...
And I would put it off again..and again...because life got a bit busier during my blogging break. For instance, Robert is now a senior, with weekly football games that are close to wrapping up.
|Robert is number 84. My sideline shots are the only ones where you can tell who is who.|
And so here I am, just deciding to start where I am and change what I can when I can. And that will be OK.
That, and I will be in a chili cook-off tomorrow, and I'm supposed to come up with a name for my chili. All I came up with (besides "My Husband Signed Me Up For This") was Cheeky Chili. I guess this is as good a reason as any to jump back in, right? And maybe I can hit some highlights of the past eleven months with occasional "Throwback Thursday" posts.
Baby steps, y'all.
