Have you wondered where I was?
Did you think some evil befell me?
Were you having visions of the chickens pecking at my decaying carcass?
I'm here - and very, very well!
There's going to be heaps to catch up on - but I just wanted you to know -
Just over a month ago - my laptop gave up the ghost.
Replacing it, or repairing it was low on my list of priorities - so I just closed it and put it away.
I pulled out my old defunct cell phone and tried to stay somewhat connected through that - but it was such a pain.in.the.butt.
I tried in vain about four times to put a one sentence blog post up letting you guys know what was up.
Thank you for your comments and emails!
A blog reader from California, sweet Mary Jo - heard about my plight on Facebook.
She had a dream in which she sent me a laptop.
Upon waking - she sent me an email saying that she felt she was supposed to send me one.
I hemmed and hawed a bit - not knowing if I could/should accept such a generous gift - and how would she feel if I didn't blog - but just sat around and ate Cheetos and surfed Pinterest?
I thought perhaps I was done blogging.
I was enjoying my season of being unplugged.
Then, one morning whilst making the bed - I had a blog post burning in my duodenum that I felt needed to get typed out. I even had a title for it "Chasing the Noodle".
I accepted her offer.
This beautiful laptop I'm typing up on is nicer than anything I could have purchased for m'self.
It literally just came out the box, and here I sit - pecking feverishly, letting y'all know I'm alive.
Do you know that feeling you have after you've slept in a strange bed for a few nights?
How good your own bed feels?
That's how my fingers feel right now typing up on a real keyboard!
I'll catch up with you in the days ahead.
I've missed you.
PS - I apologize for any technical errors this post seems to have - I have to do some figuring on here....
