The Lost Season

I'm astonished my hit counter shows me with any readers at all after I didn't post for four months!

It has been a physically and emotionally exhausting four months. Much of it was spent in Massachusetts, where I continued helping my parents prepare to move out of their house, took my 17-year-old son on college tours and to classes and volunteer work, helped support my mother-in-law during and after two stays in the hospital, and navigated a series of household disasters -- all of which, naturally, cost a lot of money we weren't expecting to spend.

And in the middle of all this, a longtime friend committed suicide.

Somehow, blogging retreated to the back burner of my life. But I am feeling a reawakening flicker of interest in it, since recent months have given me so much to post. I'm also catching up on the latest from my blogroll.

I am grateful (and still surprised) at the people who have kept an eye out for me all these months! I'm back and look forward to hearing from you.

oh happy day!
So glad to see your blog pop up in my reader. Sounds like a busy and exhausting time--college tours? eek! Glad you're back! I need some fall local destination ideas or at least a way to live vicariously through you. One of the days we'll do a photo walk/afternoon!

Sometimes life happens outside of the blogs. I'm sorry to hear about the rough times you have had. I, myself, am glad that the college tours are finished.All that is left is furnishing a dorm...*groan*

I look forward to new posts....no rush!!
