Or poke the bear.
Or so I've heard...
Okay, so maybe I'm not exactly a troll. Or a bear. More like a hermit. They're kind of the same, right?
Since I left work for summer vacation I have done exactly nothing with anyone other than my family.
Not that we haven't done things together. Or that I'm hiding in a cave in our basement. Quite the contrary. We have been to multiple baseball games (Toledo Mud Hens, Detroit Tigers, and Cleveland Indians-love our AL Central League around here!). We have gone on vacation to Georgia's Tybee Island for one week, enduring the rains of Tropical Storm Debby and eventually the 100+ temperatures that followed. I am still knocking sand out of my morning walking shoes two weeks later. We have several family gatherings in the works for the remaining summer months, a few more baseball games, and are considering a couple more family outings.
See, I'm not a total hermit.
Yet I haven't left the house unless we all have. I am happiest sitting right here at home. Ticking items off my to-do list like cleaning out closets and organizing the pantry is my job. I've always vacillated between a social butterfly and hermit, and the swing this time has been dramatic. I've even stepped away from blogging and much of social media. (many apologies!)
Why must I feel apologetic for this though? Clearly my batteries are needing recharging. My person/self/energy is sapped. This past school year was pretty hard on me emotionally. I've been in a funk. I am spending the summer trying to right the ship, so to speak. When I say don't feed the troll (or poke the bear) I mean I need the time to recover my energies before jumping back into blogging, running around, social media, and more. I will say that I have no intentions on giving up this space to write and share. I just need to get myself together first and then will return. I love blogging too much to completely walk away. So when I am ready to jump back on the wagon, I will be back at full force. And hopefully any of my readers that stick around, will be here to read again.
