I Just Can’t Stay Away!

Daily Prompt – Prudent

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! πŸ™‚

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.

  1. Dear Lydia, I am going to be very very selfish here… I maybe should encourage you to stay away from blogging for a while, if you have other things to deal with, and yourself to take care of… But I am just happy to read you πŸ˜‰

    So, a warm welcome back… Take things easy, and enjoy yourself online with us πŸ™‚

    Have a great week! xx


    1. Cyranny, I have really missed you! It has been awhile since I visited the cove. Are my seat and blanket still there? I shall come for a nice relaxing visit soon! And writing is cathartic. I think if I cut it off completely, I would be more stressed with the other things. Being here with all of you is the best medicine there is!

      1. People who don’t write couldn’t understand how addictive it can become… And WordPress is such an amazing community! I totally understand your need to be back among us πŸ™‚

        I hope we can help you when you need to vent a little, or if you need entertainment πŸ˜‰ The Cove is always open for you… And you just have to put the “Reserved for Lydia” sign on your seat before making yourself comfortable πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ And there’s always a nice selection of refreshments ready too… lol

        Take good care, gorgeous πŸ™‚ Have a wonderful week!! xx

    1. Thanks, Felicia! I have just been putting off making the lasagna for so long I wanted to do it and knew I didn’t have enough zucchini. But I do need to plan better. I have an important appointment in the morning and at the same time the purchaser’s inspector will be checking out our place – two stresses even though I am only at one!
