If any of my regular reader(s) are out there, you know that I took a hiatus from blogging after my father passed away in January. It's been a tough, tough year. I quite honestly, didn't feel like anything was interesting, witty or funny, and didn't feel like writing. Between teaching, working on the estate, and just life in general, I was exhausted.
However, my number one reader of my blog (my Mother) asked if I'd start it up again. I went out to Southern California to visit her for two weeks, right after school got out, and it was well worth it. Time with her, time to decompress, time to think. And one thing she said was she missed hearing about my kids and all the silly things that go along with teaching.
And I got to thinking that it's been enough time. The estate business isn't done yet (I'm shooting for December), and I have a lot more to do. But it's summer now, and although I just finished a week of in-service, and have a week of summer camp, it's starting to look light there's a light at the end of the tunnel.
So, it's Father's Day - my first one without my Father - and I thought I'd come back and visit all of you and say hi. I'm listening to the College World Series in the background, and he'd appreciate that. He did love baseball so.
So for all the Fathers out there - bless you. And for all of you who still have your father, please take time every single day - not just Father's Day - to appreciate the gift you have.
I think I'm kinda glad to be back.
