Miss me?

April 22, 2013

I know, I know, it’s been a while. More than three years, to be less than exact. I kept meaning to start blogging again but … you know ….

Not surprisingly, some things have changed.

After about two and a half years that blasted house finally sold last April. I should have chronicled life in a show house on here, but it was so depressing I couldn’t bring myself to put it all down. Let’s just say it was a real bitch getting everything all nice and clean for a showing and not getting a bite time and time and time again. 

After the house sold, I quit my job at the newspaper, moved to northeast Ohio and (eventually) got a job as a data processor. I’ve been living with my sister’s family since then, but this weekend I’m moving in with a friend. Sugar Puddin’/The Puddin’/Baby Cat is still in Findlay, living with a friend until that glorious day when I can bring her out here with me. For now, I stop and see her when I’m back out there, and she hides from me and hisses and then grudgingly lets me pet her a little. And then she hisses some more. I miss her terribly.

Things haven’t gone like I thought they would, but that’s pretty much how life is, right? I thought I’d get some sort of editing job, or something at least loosely related to editing, but apparently, that’s not how it was meant to be. I didn’t plan on living in a basement for a year, I thought I’d be back on my feet in no time, Puddin’ at my side, but again that’s not how it was meant to be. I didn’t think I’d be moving from that basement into a random friend’s house, but … that’s something for another post.

So why am I dusting this blog off now? Well, I have something in the works that requires me to relearn this here blogging platform, and I need to get back in the habit of posting regularly. Plus, I have thoughts and stuff.
