I Live to Blog Again

I am ready again to blog and write.  Life got in the way in a major way last year.  Overwhelmed with personal stress, I had to end my previous blog, Pampers and Pinot.  It had run its course anyway.  It was a great blog, and like Oprah, I had to leave while people still liked me.  You see, my head is still big enough to compare myself to Oprah and assume that I am liked by the masses.

I don’t aim to make everyone like me anymore.  I am simply myself and that is enough. 

My life went through a complete overhaul – the biggest being that I went through a divorce.  There were many health problems to get through (all is well now).  I had to focus on my son and his adjustment to all of these stressors. 

What hasn’t changed about me?  My sharp wit and tongue are always at the ready.  Laughing is an extremely important activity!  People may hold their breath when I begin to speak, but there is no need to worry.  My heart is big enough to make me cry every time I watch Brave.  I try to approach people with understanding and love.  My devious humor is just for fun. 

I am a very creative spirit.  Blogging keeps me writing.  Writing keeps me feeling good. 

The world is full of love – in so many forms.  The world is full of blasphemy – of all types.  I plan to write about both.  No holds barred.

I’m back.

  1. Welcome back! I recently returned from a long blogging hiatus as well (became department chair, got preggers, got married, adjusted to life as a new mom..etc.). Sounds like you've had a few hurdles to get over, but I'm happy to see you've returned victorious! Writing is such a cathartic process - I know I really missed it when I stopped. Happy new blog and happy new life!

  3. Welcome back, Kristy! I missed your humor. Glad you've emerged strong from all you've gone through. Blogger is dropping blogreader, so I've followed you on email.

    1. Thanks, Eva! Say, with Blogger dropping Blogreader, does this mean that the "subscribe to" posts/comments widget is useless?

  5. Hi Kristy,

    It's great to see you back!! I'm so sorry to hear about your divorce, but I'm glad to see that your spirit is stronger than ever!! Did you get to do a lot of writing last summer? I think writing for me is also a lot like dieting...My intentions are good, but oh yes, I just had chocolate ice cream for breakfast! Hugs and kisses to you and your little guy!

  6. I'm sorry about your divorce. It sounds like you are in a strong place now. I also understand about having to take a break from blogging, I have to do it many times so I don't get completely burned out by off-line life :)

    1. You are so right - we can get totally burned out on on-line or off-line life!

  13. I like your blog name and the linking of love and blasphemy... It reminded me of an end of a book that I'll soon post a review of that had the line, "The world is filled with Trouble... And Grace... That's all there is."
