The Hiatus is Over!

The hiatus is done.  It’s nice to be back in the blogging/social media world.  There were days that I missed it, and days that I didn’t as much.  This past month was really hard.  I had the miscarriage the week before Mother’s Day and it lasted through Mother’s Day.  I am so much better now than I was at the end of April; however I still have my moments.

I learned a lot.  I learned people don’t always say the right things.  I learned that prayer, friends, and drinks from Sonic are amazing gifts to the heart.  I learned that sometimes it is just hormones.  I also learned that I really need to be honest with myself and who I am, without feeling guilty or trivial to the world around me.

I don’t like to be left behind or left out of anything.  I want to be relevant and respected.  I want to read all the cool books, be interested in all the right trends, and have the ability to describe every experience with energy and enthusiasm.  At least I wanted that before.

Now, I want to embrace a more select group of interests.  I want to be picky with my time and how and with whom I spend it.  I don’t want to dictate what I do by what I see on the internet or in the culture around me.  Most of all, I want to share all of this with you.

I want to talk about TV shows that I watch or books that I read, no matter how silly they are.  I want to write about things I ponder without wondering if people will stop reading my blog because it’s too wordy.  I want to talk about my garden, even if I’ve killed a plant or allowed too many weeds to move in.  I want to talk about the silly things my dogs do and not be afraid that it’s annoying.  I want to share the songs I sing to the top of my lungs, no matter how eclectic or crazy.  I want to talk about my journey with running or yoga, even if I never run a marathon or have the ability to stand on my head.  I want to talk about the places I’ve seen and things I do, no matter if it’s ordinary or extraordinary.

I’ve chosen areas that mean a lot to me.  If I lived as if no one was watching and money was no object, these are the things I would do.  I hope you enjoy the coming posts as I slowly get back into the blogging world.  What are your favorite interests and things to do when no one is watching?

  1. WELCOME BACK! 🙂 You have definitely been in my thoughts and prayers! My hobbies are definitely cooking, writing, reading, and jogging. BUT when no one is looking, I have a serious obsession with the series ‘Once Upon a Time’, ‘The Amazing Race’, and ‘America’s Funniest Home Videos’. 🙂

    1. Thank you! I have missed my dear internet friends. 🙂

      And I am totally obsessed with “Once” too! I’m a sucker for a good story, especially a fairy tale! Are you excited about the Wonderland spinoff? I’m counting the days!

      1. Awww, I JUST watched it, and it looks SO good! I’m so glad you told me about it! I totally hadn’t seen any previews until now!!

  2. Welcome back! I am so glad you are on the road to recovery (mentally, physically, emotionally…you’ve been working through a lot) and I know prayers and support will keep you on it.

    I am looking forward to reading wordy posts about the funny things your dogs do and other stuff that interests you. 🙂 Yay!

    1. Thank you for the prayers and support! I really have felt them this whole month.

      My dogs are quite the little entertainers. It’s almost as if they do the things they do so that they can be in the spotlight of my blog. I don’t mind. 🙂

  3. Katy, I’m so glad you’re back. My goodness, I did not see your last post previously. My heart goes out to you. I’ve never had children, but my sister had a miscarriage many years ago and I know how hard it was on her. Give yourself time to heal. Your faith will be a big help as will your husband. It was probably a wise decision to not blog for a while to give yourself a chance to regroup, gather your thoughts, react to the situation as you needed to in a private setting. I send you hugs and hope that you will continue to heal. It sounds as if you have a lot of support around you which is important. Welcome, Back.

    1. Thank you, Fran! I have missed your posts so much! It’s like I’m being reunited with long lost friends this weekend! Also, thank you for your words and encouragement. I’m so glad I have gotten to know you in this blogging community!
