Well I'm back! I've actually been back for a few weeks. I have been putting off writing this post but I've decided to quit procrastinating and write! First my sister is much better. A combination of diet and a more positive attitude have done wonders for her (along with sticking to her medication regimen).
My sister and I spent a lot of time together but I don't really feel any closer to her. I suppose her being over a decade older than me might be an insurmountable obstacle. I am glad I spent time with her though; I think I understand her a bit better now.
My life has changed since I last wrote. First; I'm dating someone ('bout time). Things are fairly new but going well. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Second; I have a new job. I exausted all of my sick time and rather than keep my then employer on hold I resigned. There I was back in the job market. I had to remember how to job hunt, it's been a while but job hunting is sort of like riding a bike. Once I started I remembered how to do it. My new job is very laid back. I still work for a non-profit. This time I'm working more directly with people who need a little help. I'm finding it challenging and fulfilling.
Finally; I have decided to stop blogging. I've given it a lot of thought and although the current political season is chock full of blog topics I have felt a sense of freedom in not blogging. I was so caught-up in this blog I can't even imagine going back to that. I remember spending hours blogging and most of the time it was fun but at a certain point it became more of a responsibility than a joy.
So I am retiring Mes Deux Cents effective immediately. I will be around though. I plan to commence commenting on all of your blogs very soon. I have missed all of my favorite blogs SO MUCH! I have missed all of your varied perspectives on all that's going on in the world. So look for me to stop by very soon!
It has been so wonderful having all of you stop by this blog. I have enjoyed all of the conversations we've had. I've enjoyed looking forward to all of you reading my posts. I so appreciate your concern for me and my sister; it really proved that I have a blog family and that means a lot to me.
Anyway, in the next few days and weeks I look forward to starting my day and ending my day reading all of your amazing blogs. And who knows, maybe I'll get blogging fever again!
I love you all, talk to you soon!
