because I felt like I should toss something up here


Hey. Remember how I used to write stuff and post stuff here all the time? Like more than twice a month? Yeah, me too. That was cool.

I haven’t left, though. Well, actually, I did go on a trip, and come back. I went to Colorado for a cousin’s wedding. (All four of us went, and we got to see various family members, including my mother. Which was wonderful. Phoebe and Theo hadn’t seen my mother in over a year.) But what I mean to say is that I haven’t really abandoned the blog. I actually still write drafts that never get posted, and think about posting something almost daily. I’m not quite sure what gets in the way, except maybe the guilty sense that my time should be going in other directions.

I’ve still been keeping up with Project 365, and while I have definitely hit the doldrums, I am still largely enjoying myself. Many days, I feel like I’m going through the motions, and end up with predictably lackluster shots. Often taken at 11pm, somewhere in my house. However, when I look back at a month’s worth, I am generally pleased to see that there have been a few shots that I actually like. And every once in a while, I manage to do something fun.

In other news, in case you haven’t checked in on my sister’s blog, the latest news on my nephew and the pathology report was good, if unsettling: the masses removed in his recent surgery appear to be dead tumors. So, not requiring more chemo, which is fantastic. But unnerving, in that it’s not clear when, exactly, these tumors first showed up.

There are plenty more things that have been on my mind, and perhaps I will get around to sharing them. But for now, I should get back to some other stuff.

  1. Well, I picked the perfect time to randomly check in on you. Blogging has more or less fallen to the wayside for me as well. I’ve seen a few other blogger friends lose their umph, too. I’m calling it Blogger’s Malaise. Maybe more sun rays or a copper bracelet will rejuvenate us all.

    I am so glad to hear your nephew is chemo-free. I wish only the very best for the little guy.

  2. yay for the deadness of the tumors!!

  3. Another excellent post thanks for sharing! I enjoy reading your blog very much. Spending time with my family is something I love to do. Feel free to stop by Easy Lifestyles sometime. We would love to see you there

  4. Good to “see” you back! Doldrums or not, there are still some very interesting photos turning up in your 365 project, and I really like the ones you’ve posted here today!
    I’m pleased to hear that you still write drafts for the blog, even if they don’t get posted… from our point of view (i.e. your adoring public), it’s a shame they don’t, but from your own point of view, maybe it’s the process that counts?

  5. Always glad to see you in my reader!

    Glad your nephew is chemo-free, but I know how those nagging medical questions can be unsettling!

  6. Jennifer (ponderosa)

    Missed you!

  7. I had the dead tumour thing too – they never did explain it, but who cares as long as they don’t come back. Very happy for Diego.

    And very nice to see you pop up in my email subscription this morning!

  8. hello fellow blog delinquent. nice to see you.

    pass the tissues

  9. Glad to see you are back. And I love your literal interpretation of TOSS. :-)

    Continue to send good thoughts to CA for Diego and your sister and family.
