Hey everyone! Remember me?
I know, I know... you thought I'd dropped off the face of the blogging world, into the vacuum of the abyss... like George Clooney and Sandra Bullock in "Gravity." (Did you guys see Gravity? When I first saw it, I thought it was a decent movie... but then I started thinking more about the science behind the entire scenario, and I liked it less and less the more I thought about it. Perhaps it's one of those movies you're not supposed to THINK about too much... like the Transformers franchise or superhero movies or pretty much anything James Cameron has ever directed...)
But where was I? Oh yes... my neglected blog. I don't know if it was our long, cold, cloudy winter (so many clouds... so much cold... so... long...) -- or if I was just stuck in a particularly tenacious bout of writer's block -- but whatever the reason, I couldn't seem to find the motivation to sit down and write anything for my little corner of cyberspace.
And then one day I started thinking that perhaps, maybe, I just needed to start OVER. Well, not literally... I mean, my old blog still exists. I love that old blog... in fact, I love it so much that I didn't even choose a new name for this one. Because let's face it -- I will probably never be one of those people who has a focused, single-topic kind of blog. Random tangents are my specialty. (Please refer to the above "Gravity" tangent.)
But I DID feel like I needed a bit of a new start, just to jostle my brain back into blogging mode. I'm also hoping to post a bit more often about cooking and baking, and maybe a little more about working out... with, hopefully, the occasional travel musing when I have a chance to get away. Of course, I'm sure my usual random thoughts will occupy more than their fair share of space in this blog...
I'm hoping that this newness -- coupled with the fact that warmer weather and sunshine have FINALLY arrived in Chicago (I seem to be a bit solar-powered) -- will give me the incentive I need to launch myself back into the blogging world. Welcome to the new space -- if I don't post again soon, someone yell at me, okay? :)
