Lost Blogger Found and Returned to Her Office

Where the heck have I been? I’m so sorry to have disappeared. I don’t know where the time has gone….

Perhaps in worrying how much writing energy email and blogging and facebook actually consume in a writer’s life…

Or recovering from a bad bout of irregular heartbeats that plagued me 24/7 for 2 months. Not life-threatening, but when your heart feels as if it’s trying to beat its way out of your chest, it can be a little distracting. Drugs weren’t helping, so started taking magnesium and CoQ10. Now I have relief 50% of the time…

Or focusing on losing weight. (Gained 30 pounds in the last 3 years, my brilliant solution to stress. Grrr.) Have lost 10. Only 20 left to go. I’m following Weight Watchers, which is a fairly easy program. I can eat whatever I want. The only thing I’m really avoiding consistently is food.

Or starting my annual speaking schedule (7 done so far, 13 in May, only 4 in June!)

Or trying to keep the house cleaner… (Okay, no, this one’s a total lie. Gaack. A vicious dust bunny bit my ankle the other day.)

Or adjusting to once again being the Primary Farmer as Melissa brings home the bacon, so to speak. 

Or working on a new novel (almost done with first draft…lordy, what a mess.)

Or trying to develop a new nonfiction idea (lordy, what a mess…)

Or knitting socks….

Or drinking wine and little squares of dark chocolate….

Or watching this stupid video—makes me laugh..not sure why!


Whatever caused my disappearance, let’s hope I don’t get lost again. Please, let your last few months have made more sense than mine!

  1. Welcome back. I think it is OK when actually living life takes precedence over blogging about it.

    Good luck with the tachycardia – I know it is scary. And good job with the great start to losing the 30. Hard work, but so worth it for your health.

  2. Coincidentally, I’ve been a lost blog reader. Just trying to catch up with my favorites now!

    I’m glad that during our lost period we had the chance to meet at Yarnover in Minnetonka. I truly enjoyed it. Another wonderful coincidence!
