It’s Saturday afternoon. The kids are asleep, Bryan is snoring on the couch, and Return of the Jedi is on cable (HD!). I have just enjoyed a relaxing hour of catching up on some beloved blog reading – as much as two months worth of posts! That may sound overwhelming to some, but to me it was just the thing I needed to do. There is a lot of ‘to-do’ lists in my life, and as much as I love my blogs and my blog friends, I have at times put them before the other necessary facets of my life. It has been refreshing to spend the last few weeks not obsessively checking my feeds. I read two books, for instance. And now, as I have time to sit and enjoy my blogs in a time and space that is not full of other noise, I find I enjoy the experience of reading them more because they are not seen as another item to check of my list. So if you have missed my presence in your comments – go check your email now because I think I’m all caught up!
