I don't like having silence on the blog, especially when I have so many things to talk about. I know I can't control my body or the symptoms of my Lupus, but I still get mad when I can't find the time to blog. And it has been that way for a few months!
I also feel bad that I have pretty much abandoned the event I am hosting this month. I had big plans for my reading...and that has fallen away. School has been crazy busy recently, so I'll throw that excuse out there one more time. ;) But now that some of the craziness is going away, and my Lupus symptoms (like the sore inflamed joints) are disappearing, I've been saddled with a cold. Drat!
Anyway, school winds up on Wednesday in preparation for our Spring Break. We're lucky this year to have over a week off of school. In addition to reading a great deal, I'm also making plans to catch up on the HUGE backlist of posts I have in draft form. I'm thinking I'll get cracking early and schedule everything out until I am caught up and up to date. :)
I hope you can all excuse my absence. I'm still trying to find the balance between work, family, hobbies, and my health. It has been a rough road, but I am getting there. I miss blogging and the amount of joy it brought me...and I know some of that joy now comes from other places-like teaching. But I miss it and want it back. Please just continue to bear with me.
