I’m Not Sure I Even Remember How To Do This

Posted By on March 1, 2011

*blows dust off this website*

Well, that was an unplanned break. And I know I shouldn’t talk about the break and I should get back into the whole blogging thing again, but DAMN! That was a long break and much longer than I expected.

Nothing really exciting has even really happened. I have started to go back to the gym. I even re-started Couch to 5k for the millionth time. And because that gets me home later in the day, I have enough energy to barely make dinner and then watch something on the boob tube.

That’s really only part of the reason. The other big part was that I debated just quitting altogether – no big fanfare, no big goodbye, just slowly walking away, leaving a post up with ‘junk punch’ in the title, for all of eternity. Sums it up pretty well.

See, I’ve been tired of the internet lately. I’ve let drama and other things bother me to the point where I forgot that the reason I started this website all those years ago was because I wanted to write. Somehow in all the twittering and Facebooking, I lost that. I lost that it was about writing. I let things irritate me and I would get caught up in it all and I would forget “hey, this was always supposed to be about writing. Nothing more, nothing less.”

It took a chat with one of my favoritest people in the world to remember this. She reminded me that it is about writing and it was time to Blog Like it’s 2004! (Or 2006, since that’s when I started.)

So that’s what I’m going to do. Because I miss writing. I miss posting. I miss all of you, you especially! Yes, you, right there at the computer!

There you have it. Look for more posts from me. Including my tale of the Office Coffee Creamer Thief! Yet another person I want to junk punch.

I’m back, bitches!

    Dude! I was totally thinking last night that it was about time to check in on you and make sure everything was OK! And then? I dreamed (remember, it’s morning here) that you made a new post with pictures of how fabulous you looked because you had dropped like thirty pounds or some ridiculous amount in your absence! Good to have you back. You’ve missed….absolutely nothing. It was February, after all.

    Also, I think that is my favorite picture of you of all bloggy time.

    The credit actually goes to Karen Sugarpants….A wise, wise woman who totally encouraged me to go back to blogging like it’s 2004. It’s sooo liberating.

    So glad you aren’t quitting. I think it would be a mistake.
    love you!

    I totally understand the “sick of the internet” thing, but I’m SO glad you’re back!

  11. Moose says:

    Huzzah! So glad. Also, that is the best picture in the entire world. Would it be creepy if I made that my wallpaper?

  12. Jen says:

    Glad you decided to stick around! I tend to take long, unplanned absences from my blog, too…and my theory is that since I AM in it for the writing, sometimes I just don’t feel like writing. But I love your blog and your stories, so yay, you’re here/back!

    So glad you’re back! I wanted to email you and ask you to please! post! something! because I needed a touch of funny in my life these days. But, fortunately, I held off emailing you and making your blog all about me and my needs. LOL Seriously, it makes me very happy to see you posting!

  14. So glad you’re back! Whether you know it or not, us lurkers have missed you big time. I can understand getting busy with life, lazy and even just tired of blogging but I’m not there yet. However I’ve never done it on a daily basis either. I do the once a month thing like it’s an after thought. It’s like everything else you do in a routine, the longer you are away from it, the harder it is to go back to it. Like being off of work, after 2 weeks you NEVER want to go back. I look forward to seeing what you’ve got up your sleeve next! It seems no matter how big or small, your posts are entertaining! 😉

    Welcome the fuck back!!!! Missed you more than words can say – so I’ll leave them to you 🙂

  16. I’m not sure I’ve EVER commented on one of your posts; and if I have, it’s been quite some time.

    I’m glad you’re taking a step back…I will gladly admit that I miss the days of just having 10 blogs to read. Of Miss Doxie, and The Wino and when everything felt smaller and cozier.

    So! If you’ll keep posting, I’ll keep commenting (or at least I’ll try)
