Help! I need somebody~

I'm feeling a little lost. I know exactly where I am, of course. I'm at home. Today, for a change, I'm not going to pack up and move - except to walk to the supermarket and back, for my step count. My home, the one that doesn't have wheels, is going to stay right here. So why am I lost? Well, it's weird. For three and a half months, I sat over there -----> to write my posts, and there was always something to write about. I was visiting some places I'd never seen before, having little adventures - not big adventures, thank goodness, but little ones - and I wanted to share them. Now, it's back to Life as Usual - at least until the next trip. But - but I'm not ready to stop. It's become important to me that I come here and share my day, and that I share your days, too. First thing this morning, I checked to make sure that Kat Magendie had arrived safely at her home - and I started catching up on my other favourite bloggers - for the advice and inspiration they provide, and also because somehow our lives are intertwined now. That sounds pretentious, but I can't think of a better way to put it. I care what's going on in John's life, and Katrina's - (how could I get by without seeing those lovely hats?). I want to get my dose of good cheer from Angie - hmmm. Today, I can learn to make a bayou punch!

Well, you get the idea. Just look at my bloglist. I seem to have moved into Blogland, and I don't want to leave. So what should I do? This is supposed to be a travel journal. I'm not traveling. Shall I change the leader and make this a stay-at-home blog? Shall I go back to Turtle Tracks? If I do, will anybody come with me? I need some advice!

Meanwhile, I'm in this beautiful place, waiting for the dogwoods to bloom again. Every year, I look forward to getting home in time to watch the buds, wait for them to open. There. That's a good reason for getting home while it's still cold - I know I haven't missed the first dogwood blossom! While I wait, there are the snowdrops - and then will come the crocuses, the daffodils. In the words of Roseanne Roseannadanna, "If it isn't one thing - it's another."

Glad you're home safe!

I think your post says a lot about being lost, but also sends a strong message. We still enjoy you no matter where you're sittn'!

Thanks, Kim. I appreciate the vote of confidence. When I linked to Turtle Tracks and read my last post there, I realized I've been pondering this problem, albeit unconsciously, for months now.

I have to check in with all my lovelies too! And we are glad you are home safe and sound. I'm sure you'll think of plenty to blog about.

Sandra Leigh said...

Oh, dear, Debbie. Be prepared. I've started work on the character sketches and timeline for my NaNoWriMo novel. News at 11:00!

what a wander you've had....reentry is always such an adjustment!

see you about -- where ever your fingers and mind choose to settle in cyberspace....

Sandra Leigh said...

Thanks,Kimy. I think I'll try to figure out a way to combine this blog with Turtle Tracks (my original, non-travel blog).

Hi Sandra:

I know I'm late on this, but as you know I was away. I was just saying to Eberle yesterday evening that "I hope Sandra Leigh keeps blogging now that she's back from her travels." I do very much look forward to your posts & would like to see them continue whether it's in this space or another-- if the latter, just give us a heads up! I'm sure there must be a big re-adjustment after such a long period away & living a different lifestyle.

Thanks, John. I'm still trying to figure out how to combine my Blogger blogs. I'm beginning to think it can't be done. Maybe I'll have to hire a 12-year old to help me!
