Have you ever felt like a hamster on a wheel? Everyday you get on the wheel and run. You like it. You know what to expect. You know what you’re doing. You’re just running on your wheel like always. Maybe you pause for a sandwich and some Judge Judy (I know hamsters don’t eat sandwiches and watch Judy. Just go with it). Then you get back on the wheel and run. Maybe do a few flying hamster tricks and buy some cute hamster heels (I know. Go with it). You’re super hamster and your life is great.
Then one day you crawl out of your fluffy hamster bedding and your wheel is broken. You think in your little hamster head, “Life has given me lemons. I’ll make lemonade.” I can do it. I’m super hamster. No sweat. Only your lemonade sucks and your wheel is still broken. But that’s okay. Just a minor set back. You can fix it. You can fix everything. So you bust out your tools and get to work. You work hard, but someone sticks their hand in your cage and grabs your wheel before you can fix it all the way. You try to “hang on baby” but they shake you out, and you’re left on your hamster back thinking WTF! WTF just happened to my wheel? Give me back my wheel!
Okay, I’ll stop now with the hamster analogy. As some of you may have noticed, I have been away from the Goddess Blogs for eight months. The other Goddesses have kept my statue in the header and dressed me according to the season. I want to thank all of them for that and for being so kind and understanding when real life knocked my feet from under me. Thank you all for keeping the wheel going until I could jump back on. And I especially want to welcome new Goddess Christie Ridgway. Don’t let her innocent face fool you, that girl is wild!
I’m back and ready to rock and roll. What have you all been up to since I went away. Babies? Book deals? New mascara that I need to know about?
