It’s been a long time. I’m still around. I think periodically about returning to the world of writing. But I’ve spent a long time dealing with some personal demons. I think I have been battling some depression and I’ve not felt like doing much about it. I also and struggling through the daily life of caring for my two monsters, and the Type One dia-baby is an added handful. My husband was deployed for much of last year and this year I have again struggled with my depression and I’ve struggled to get though basic things like school and housework.
It’s not all been a rough road though. I’ve started knitting again. I’ve been working on tie-dyeing again. And I recently started experimenting with dyeing yarn. I am slowing getting the itch to be myself again.
Depression is a weird thing. I don’t feel “depressed”. But I also don’t really enjoy doing much of anything I once enjoyed doing, to be honest I don’t enjoy doing much of anything.
But I’m working on it, I’m working on myself. We are getting ready to move this summer and I think as much as I have grown quite comfortable in SoCal, I am ready to move on. It’s time to start our next adventure, and one step closer to retirement and finding our forever home.
I’m hoping to keep this up for a bit, perhaps partly for my own mental health, and partly so I have something to look back on in a few years.
Tonight I’m working on cleaning up the old posts merged from the old blog “Fractured Fairy Tales”, I am removing those from here and they will still be available as long as blogspot is still alive. Then I am going to move to the couch and work on some knitting, This week I’ll try to share a post on how that has been going after a VERY long hiatus.
