It’s me, Trisha. The one who used to blog here daily and then it slowed down to a few times a week. And, it seems that I haven’t posted a thing in something like 3 months. That is a long time for me.
Confession… In the time I haven’t been blogging, I also haven’t been reading many blogs, at least not ones that I regularly follow. Heck, I haven’t even read many books that weren’t intended to teach me things about cancer or radiation.
I’m still alive. Promise.
Are you ready for the giant list of excuses? I have them. And I think they are relatively legitimate. But really, I know *most* people aren’t looking for excuses. It’s not like this is my job or main life commitment.
That being said, I really like blogging. And really missed it (I know, then why did I stop doing it for so long?). I have ton of things I would like to write about.
My main excuse is the fact that I am very pregnant. As in the Creature could make an appearance any day now. And in the past few months, much of my energy has been put into growing this little creature or figuring out how to make our home/life hospitable.
Next up, I’m a resident. Yes, I know lots of people are. But, the combination of pregnant and resident is a whole lot to deal with. Especially when you have issues with being a chronic overachiever who bites off more than they can chew, doesn’t want to say no to anything and has to do well on every single rotation.
Lastly, I have a life with other commitments. I like my family and my friends and my church. They all require time from me.
So, by the time I got split into those three things, making sure I was clean, fed and got some semblence of sleep, there was little time left for blogging. Sure, I had time I could have used for blogging or fun reading, but mostly, I wasted it mindlessly staring at the TV or What To Expect forums (more on those some other time).
In summary (as if this is some sort of essay or proposal), I wish I wrote more, but I didn’t. Now, I am going to try again. Let’s see how this goes…
