After 12 Weeks...

Been a while! I'm honestly not sure that anyone will read this, but I'm going to write it. Minimizing this blog for a few weeks was really helpful to me. It helped me to see that this little space still has a part for me. This is just a good place for me to think through certain things that I can't really bring up in other places. I am not promising regular posts or anything crazy like that, but I am not ready to give up this space.

I will say, however, that I was reminded immediately one of the reasons that I had trouble writing posts even before taking a break. I don't know if it's Blogger, or my internet or my computer or what, but getting on here can be a ridiculous undertaking sometimes! It'll take forever to load, if it ever does. It doesn't like to save my draft if I finally do get on here, and it's very difficult to get pictures loaded. In general, sometimes it will take so long that if I have a few minutes to type out a few thoughts, those minutes will be rapidly eaten by glitches in the system.

Anyway, if the silly site will let me, I will still try to blog occasionally. I'm still going to keep my hiking blog (which would also be updated more if Blogger wasn't such a pain in the butt!). I did like switching to my email being forwarded and following blogs through my other email. It means that I only have to log into this one if I actually want to blog. And it allowed me to weed out blogs that I am no longer following. I would be better about following and reading, but see above for issues with Blogger loading! Hopefully, I will be able to do a little catch up soon.

Other than that, I am just sitting here trying to recover from a crazy backpacking trip. My mosquito bites are making me crazy! I have a topical cream to help with the itching and it kind of does, but then they just start itching all over again. I hate it!  Okay, more later. Just because I am behind, what am I missing? What have you been up to?

Grr! Just to cement my frustrations, after clicking "publish" 10+ times, it refuses to actually publish! This is why I rarely blog anymore!
