Me too, people.
I wonder if the Blogging Blahs is an official diagnosis. It should be. As a long-time blog reader, I've seen it happen to many a blogger. One month you're all up in her business, conversatin' in the comments section of her blog, making passive aggressive cartoons about her ex (or maybe that's just me), and looking forward to her next post. The next month she's just gone. Totally leaves you hanging. And you're all, "I bet her asshole ex has her tied up with duct tape in his storage shed. The lack of wifi is the only thing that would keep her from posting!" And you're surprised to discover that you really miss her. Her riffs and rants had become a part of your life. Like a really dysfunctional daily newspaper.
So I won't do that to you.
I have the Blogging Blahs. I admit it. I remain in awe of the awesome, witty bloggers who can do it every day (like my homie Erin at Oh Honestly, Erin). Heck, I'm even in awe of people who can post weekly at this point. I seem to be fresh outta blog inspiration. Or maybe I'm just really tired. Maybe it's because I'm anemic or maybe it's due to my vitamin D deficiency. Crohn's disease affects nutrient absorption, but I don't seem to get the one upside to that (weight loss!). Maybe it's this %&#*ing neverending fibromyalgia/arthritis flare. Maybe it's that I'm really loving my life right now (except for the above-mentioned %&#*ing fibromyalgia/arthritis flare) and I'm more into living it than documenting it. Maybe it's all of that.
I just haven't been feeling very fluent or funny lately. Plus, that %&#*ing fibromyalgia/arthritis flare is affecting my right thumb. So typing hurts. &^%&*%&^!!!!
Tired, cranky me isn't really much fun. So, when you think about it, by not blogging, I'm actually being kind. I'm being a humanitarian. (You're totally welcome.)
I'm not depressed though. I don't want y'all to think that. Despite my health problems, I've been going to parties and inviting friends over and I just painted Nature Boy's bathroom. And I've been baking!
(I was aiming for the "signature swirl" from that DC Cupcakes show here, but I ended up with Poo Piles.)
After the Poo Pile Debacle of 2013, I broke down and bought a cake decorating set with tips and bags and whatnot. The results were so much better!
Oh yeah, aaaaaand Nature Boy and I just got cast in a local production of Godspell! Woohoo! We both got principal roles, which was a happy surprise for both of us. Don't know if you know much about Godspell, but here's a character list if you're interested. I am playing Peggy and Nature Boy is playing Herb. We'll be practicing for the next 3 months and the show will be in June. We are really excited!
I guess I just want y'all to know that I will be in and out as far as blogging goes. Which is nothing new, really. But I won't disappear from the blogosphere without telling you first.
P.S. Today is my husband's birthday!
