I've been a bad book blogger. (Hand Slap, please!) I never ever thought that I would be as neglectful of my blog as I have been lately. It seems that I am in a sort of "funk" that won't lift. My reading time is non-existent as of late. The household is in a sort of upheaval at the moment.
My husband has been having to work late every night and every Saturday to get a project finished in time for a deadline. Our dinner schedule is thrown off, which means we're eating late, things are being done at odd hours....evenings have always been my reading time....at least 2 hours before I go to bed. If I'm not reading, well, then I feel I've got nothing to blog about. I have still been keeping up with my Teaser Tuesdays, but that is about it. I have missed being able to browse everyone's blogs and see what you all have been up to.
Which is what prompted me to post this reflection this morning. I was crushed when I visited Dar's blog this morning and learned of Buddy's passing. It felt like a punch in the stomach.
Since I started this blog, I have come to think of all of you as friends as well as fellow book lovers. Dar was one of my first friends when I started this blog and made me feel very welcome here. It is difficult to realize that in the time that I have been away from my blog, things happen...some terrible, some good. I just know that in the past, when I have gone through many a similar situation, that all of my blog friends have been there for me, and I appreciate every loving thought and comment that I receive.
Blogging is hard work and takes a lot of dedication....which so many of you have. I love visiting and reading your blogs and please know that you are appreciated, even if I don't have time to comment. And to Dar.....I'm so so sorry for your loss. To Cecile: whom I haven't been in contact with for months, who Friday sent me the longest email catching me up with what's been going on in her life. To all of you.....I promise I haven't forgotten what you mean to me. You're in my thoughts daily.
