I've Fallen and I Can't Get Up!

If anyone still comes around here, you must be shocked that there is a new post.

I thought I would finally resurface long enough to tell people where the heck I am and what I'm doing these days.

The simple explanation is that I just got out of the habit of blogging. I find that once I stop doing something, it is hard to get started again. I only wish breaking bad habits was as easy.

The longer explanation is that once I was fully engulfed in putting on Oklahoma!, I slowed down dramatically. I had for a few months posted at least once a day. When the streak was broken, I felt the freedom to let go a little bit.

I love blogging and reading blogs, but it was consuming too much time. It wasn't really school starting up because I was blogging regularly when I was teaching AND taking classes of my own.

I just stopped and couldn't get going again.

One of the barriers to restarting is that I am currently assistant director for our next show here at Riverbank Community Theater. We are doing A Christmas Story and I am not only doing all the publicity stuff I did for past shows, but I am going to be at practice four nights a week.

You can see why I didn't jump right back into blogging!

Finally, I am sorry that I left all of you hanging for so long. Not only have I not been on my own blog, but I haven't been on any of yours much either. For some reason, Blogger doesn't give me email notifications when you comment me either. I can't find anyone who knows what happened with this and it is very frustrating.

I am thankful for my blogging friends who came looking for me; sorry that I didn't even know that you called until now. Maybe one day I will get that fire going again, but until then, Global Warming is a scam. (Oh, God Bless and happy blogging!)
