Serious. Bloggers. Block.

I have become something I never wanted to be.  Something I criticized others for.  Something that in my deepest darkest moods knew I wasn’t capable of.

I have become this:  Someone who started something and abandoned it.  GASP!

Surely there is a support group for this very issue.  Hello. My name is Ashley and I abandoned my blog.

How could I have let this happen?!  So what if I have a full time job…. and am newly married… and have two stepchildren in addition to my 3 children… and a new extended family… and a new (to me) house to paint and re-decorate from the er.. “previous female inhabitant” aka ex-wife… and new neighbors to meet and get to know.  Is that terrible?? Could it be that my life is so complicated I couldn’t maintain a simple little teensey weency blog?  Umm, yeah.  I guess the answer is yes.  So what do I do?

I pick up my laptop, dust her off, give her a hug and march type on!!

You’ve just got to keep on keepin’ on, right?! Nothing’s gonna stop us now! I think I can, I think I can! Just keep swimming!  Push it!  When the going get tough, the tough get going!  It’s the eye of the tiger… Ok, you get the point.  Bottom line is: I’m ba-aack!!

I may not post daily, weekly, bi-weekly or monthly but I will post, this I promise.  I will imagine my little cheering section is jumping up and down!  And I’m bowing and curtseying and blowing kisses as I accept a huge bouquet of roses!!

Ok, back to reality.  Bottom line folks… reality is just that.  To achieve YOUR goals in life YOU have to make the efforts.
