She Surfaces (now with short p.s. added)

So it would appear that if you abandon your blog for a year, you may find that some changes have taken place in your absence. Some weeds may have sprouted up, or vandals may have hurled rocks through your windows.

Or all the comments you had accumulated over the past 5 years may have been vaporized -- POOF. Thanks for nothing, Haloscan.

I'm not sure what prompted me to dust off my Blogger account. I don't have anything particularly exciting to report, no great insights to share. I'm still doing the freelance editing thing, the kids continue to blithely ignore my command that they just stop growing for crying out loud. We've been dealing with the fallout of The Year the Economy Went Kaboom, during which Jeff lost his job. I don't want to complain too much about that, for we are far luckier than so many other people in similar straits. Let's just say that we're both looking forward to a brighter horizon.

So the question now is, should I return for real? I know that a lot of my blogging friends have gone quiet as well. Maybe they're like me, reading but not posting? I guess I'll play it by ear.

Till next time, Namaste! (In honor of the penultimate episode of Lost tonight)

p.s. So the lovely new commenting system requires a login for your name to appear. If you'd rather not login, can you just leave your name with your comment? Because I'm nosy like that.
