Back in the saddle again

So much has happened. 

We moved to Minnesota. My dad moved to Minnesota as well. The kids started school, then finished for the summer. Dan settled into his new church and I settled into my new job at Target. Life trucked along. 

The summer ended, school began again. We enjoyed a beautiful fall. 

Dad passed away on October 4th. We laid him to rest on October 13. Our lives continued, now with a large Leon sized hole in it. 

I’m not sure why I stopped blogging. At first it was unpacking, getting settled. I’m always tired after work, sometimes (especially after Black Friday, ugh) so tired I can’t leave my chair when I get home. I didn’t know what to write about. I just didn’t feel like it. 

Why am I back? I have no idea. I don’t know if I will write every day, or once a month. I will probably make this my journal, my memory keeper, my way of getting thoughts out. Who knows. I just know I want to get back in touch with the writer in me. With my creativity. 

So there it is. I’m back in the saddle again.

    I thought of you yesterday when I noticed it had been so long since you blogged. I wondered how you were doing in MN. I’m so sorry to hear about your dad. I hope you continue to blog, even if it is not often.
    We are plugging along here in ID. 2015 was a long year of trying to help my parents very long distance apart. We are praying that their old and new house closings are both on Monday and they can get settled again.

    So glad to hear from you again. We miss you in the WI library community (altho to confess Lloyd and I moved to MN across the river from La Crosse last winter). I am so sorry to hear about your dad. Alot of changes for your family over the past few years. I join many others in sending you good thoughts!!
