I posted a notice on Facebook earlier this week that I was deleting my Facebook account and my blog. I was trying to get away from spending too much time on the computer. And it worked. But I found that I really missed sharing myself with my friends and family on my blog. The Bagel Factory represents four years now (WOW!) of blogging and quitting that is no easy feat. I'm glad I got rid of Facebook. Maybe I'll be back on there someday when my kids are older and begging to have their own accounts, but for now, it's the right choice for me as a busy, scheduling-handicapped, mother-of-three. But ditching the blog didn't end up feeling good.
So . . . I guess what I'm trying to say is . . . I'm back. I probably won't be a blogging maniac, but I'll blog when the feeling strikes, the mood is right, and all my other wifely, motherly, homemakerly duties have been completed for the day (though that is not the case right now . . . hm . . . .). And since, like I already mentioned, I am seriously organization-impaired, blogging will be sporadic and infrequent at best.
Because of my announcement of my attempt to escape my social networking addiction (Yeah, I said it. It's true), I probably have no readers left. But if, by some miracle, there is a die-hard Liz fan out there who happens to try to hop back on here and finds me back up and running, here's a shout-out to you and a big, BIG virtual hug from me. :P
Love you guys!
P.S. Typing this seems so trivial in light of what happened in Japan this morning. I am constantly being reminded of how pathetically small my problems and trials are in the grand scheme of this big, wide world. I'm sending my prayers across the ocean to be with the battered people of Japan.
