Look what the cat dragged in

I’ve been MIA.

What started out as writer’s block (and would have been a perfectly valid reason for taking a break), turned into author’s apathy, both of which were compounded by a facebook addiction, my return to work, a change or ten in family dynamics, and having my second seizure in a seven month span.  Not cool.  I’ve taken a bit longer bouncing back from the seizure, and though I look “okay” on the outside, my thought processes have been glitchy and blank, which has made it just about impossible to form a coherent thought from start to finish, which has caused me to feel vulnerable in my relationships and attempts at conversation, which have taught me a new coping strategy, being quiet.  I’m still learning.

I did get to add significantly to my prayer journal, I’ll share some of that in the next little bit.  I wish I could say all of my time was productive, but I do feel that I have had a pretty good rest, even if it was self-imposed.

The past couple days, I’ve felt the familiar pinging of ideas, questions, ponderings, and connections being made in my little brain, and so, since I process best by verbalizing (or writing), I decided to get over myself, and celebrate the first Sunday of advent by attempting to get some of it into some decent blog content.

Oh.

That reminds me.

Happy Advent!

  1. I know what you mean about writer’s block, fb addiction, returning to work, and family changes. All of the same causes for less blog posts for many others as well, I think. So glad that you’re doing better after your seizure and are able to come back to write again. And bring us the cheer with some snow! :oD

  2. Lyn, still praying for you daily. Are y’all doing better? What are you doing in the “returned to work” life? It just dawned on me you mentioned a change in family dynamics that I missed all those months ago in my first reading of this post. Someone move or a new grand, perhaps?

    • Thank you, Kat. I am actually working in my own home, being caregiver for three of the cutest kids ever! God just blessed us with Grammie Rewards #6 and 7 in March and May. Life is busier now than I had grown accustomed to, I’m hoping to get one blog post in a week, but even that seems ambitious at this point. Thanks for asking 🙂 Blessings, Lyn
