I just got off the phone with my at-one-time Professional Organizer cousin. We were catching up and discussing the things we wanted to accomplish in 2010. As I was complaining about not blogging and how on earth have I not posted anything in so long, I received a second message from the very kind and understanding Skye, a BlogHer Ads editor. She informed me that they were, in fact, going to close my account with them, because, even though I have promised over and over that I will begin blogging again with some consistency, the truth is, I haven't.
So, my wise (and whip cracking) cousin, told me to write something right this very second. I immediately felt panicked. What could I say after such a long absence? Don't I have to explain? What about all the things that have happened?
But, NO, she said. Just do it. No big pressure, nothing complicated. You owe it to yourself. Start somewhere.
But what about the holiday decorations that need to be put away? I have to shovel the two inches of snow that fell last night. And take a shower. What am I going to make for dinner?
Do I even remember how to type? Or how to post?
Turns out I do.
I am jumping back in. Cross your fingers for me. She told me to start today.
And so I have.
