I've been pretty scarce around here to the point where I was wondering if I was ever going to come back here myself. The past few posts have been so depressing and gloomy that I wouldn't expect many people to come along and check out what I wrote the next few times because of the predictable taste of what is coming out of these pages.

I realized that we are almost to the end of August and it is my blogiversary. I started this way back in 2004 and I'm still, although barely, here. I have to make a decision. I either start doing this a little more regularily again, or I walk away. I hate to walk away… from anything.

So here I am, begging your forgiveness for being absent. Wanting to come back and purge the thoughts that stuff my head day in and day out. Hope you'll be along for the ride. If only to let me know that you, too, are still here.

Thank you to all who gave me condolences on the dogs. I know some people just think they are animals… but to those of us who have them and love them, they are family. Just the furry kind.

I'm back. See you soon.

  1. I’m still here, I always read but don’t often comment these days. With my life such a mess – how do I dare comment on other people’s lives. Sheesh.
    Glad to hear from you though, and happy to continue reading however regularly (or not) you post.

  2. But there is nothing to forgive.

    Life happens. Things happen. When you come back, I’ll be here.

    Happy anniversary.

  3. I, too, show up regularly and don’t always comment. There are just too many times that I’ve felt so discombobulated lately and the words don’t come.

    I always tell those who I read: your blog is to do what you want with–just as my blog is mine and I do my own thing there. Whatever you’re comfortable with is definitely okay with me.

    Congrats on your blogiversary–hopefully there will be many more years!

  4. I’m always here…you are in my feed reader so when you post, I see. 🙂

    Happy four years and honestly, there is nothing to forgive whatsoever. Trust me…I get it.

  5. Happy blogiversary. I, too, like the others mentioned above have been reading (tho perhaps less frequently as my life’s been crazy too) but not commenting.

    I don’t know why I don’t always comment, but sometimes that’s just the way it goes.

    If you stay, I’ll be reading. If you leave, I hope you’ll at least still stop by and read me.

    Buenos con queso,


  6. Animals are more important to me than most people (who are also animals, biologically speaking).

    I am so sorry for the loss of your furry child.

    Happy birth of your blog.
