I know I said I was stepping back from my blog because the stress of selling/buying a home, getting ready to move, dealing with new and existing health issues, and just feeling pulled in a million directions.
Cutting back from commitments I think is wise. However, not writing was not a very prudent decision. All the years after I started with bipolar and then everything else took away my creativity and my ability to write. I have a second chance and I realize that writing IS me, or at least a big part of me.
So, I will still be writing as the thoughts come and I will be reading as many of your posts as I can. I am still shying away from new product reviews (after finishing those I am committed to now) and volunteer work on a few of the Chronic Illness groups I belong to.
Today was my first solo trip since we brought my van, Levine, back from my in-law’s place where we stored it all winter. Hubby cleaned the inside for me as there was some inevitable mold but nothing like what we found in the house. When I got in it smelled very fresh and clean! I just went to the grocery store five minutes away to pick up the items that were shorted in my delivery yesterday (still having problems there). It was nice to be out in the sun but it is equally nice to be home. I am proud of myself for getting out there. Six months ago I was ready to sell the van and not drive again.
Oh, if you are wondering why my van is named Levine, it is a Maroon 5-door. Anyone that watches the Voice or knows current rock bands will get the reference! If you aren’t in either of those groups and really want to know, comment below and I will tell you! 🙂
Since this is Hubby’s first day back on day-shift (Mondays only) I am going to make a zucchini lasagna for dinner so I better conserve some energy. That is two “events” in one day – shopping and cooking.
