Well, I'm back, and an internet sabbatical was a good thing. It didn't exactly go the way I thought it would. I thought I'd get a lot more done. Maybe being gone on a 4,000 mile round trip (driving) and being sick for 3 weeks after that had something to do with that. I envisioned spending tons of time reading to my kids and writing snail mail letters. I wrote only one letter, which is almost done but not yet mailed...Hi Valerie! I haven't forgotten!
We spent a few days with my Grandma in California whom I hadn't seen in eight years. I haven't been to her home in over twenty years...So this trip meant the world to me. She's my kids' only living great grandparent, and it was so special for them to get to meet and spend time with her.
I made progress on some of the things I've been working toward in my home, even in spite of being gone and sick. Now if I can just conquer the laundry monster...
I expected to be back with loads of inspiration, but so far I don't feel exeptionally inspired. However, I will be blogging regularly again, and I'm looking forward to it.
And I can't let all this time without being online go by without saying:
I *heart* the internet! The thing I missed most was keeping up with bloggers I know IRL or online. I wondered how everyone was doing daily. It's good to be back, but I'm glad I had some time to make sure my feet were firmly planted on the ground where God has me.
