Just Checking In

Hey folkses! I just wanted to check in and basically tell everyone hi. I know I've been disappearing a lot this year and I wanted to reassure everyone that I have no intentions at all of leaving blogging, it's just been a really weird year. I've had circumstances come up in the last week that have made things even more strenuous though so I'm likely to be away from regular blogging for a little while, but I'll be back after I've taken care of me. Hopefully, regardless of how I'm doing overall, I'll be here for Dewey's Readathon!!!! If anything, that will be a day of happiness which will lift me up for a day :) Sorry, I'm not trying to be cryptic or anything here, but I had a sort of traumatic event happen at work that's caused this and it's not something I can talk about in a public forum. But I'm doing ok and taking some time to just work on me right now and I'll be back as soon as I can be.

I did actually finally finish a book this month! The Color Master by Aimee Bender which I absolutely adored...I'd love to tell you all all about it so hopefully I can squeeze a review out sometime soon. But if you're thinking of readathon books and you're a fan of magical realism, this would be a good one!

*hugs hugs hugs hugs hugs* to everyone and I miss you all so much!!! I'll be back soon. Love to you all!!

Definitely Chris, you need to take care of yourself - and know we'll be waiting right here. Or maybe over here. Or possibly even over here. (I'll try not to make a mess.)

I hope you're doing well. Whatever the trauma is that happened at work, don't blame yourself. <3

It's always good to see you post! And keep posting to Instagram. I think that's where I see you the most.

Aw, sorry about your experience. We had a pretty traumatic week, too. I'm now officially not a blogger but I'll still drop by to visit and maybe I can unofficially join in on the readathon. Hope the coming weeks are better. Loved your pic of Charli at Twitter!!!

Oh Chris, I hope things get better for you soon. You've had such a tough year. I miss your posts, but you know I - we - understand completely. Life is more important in the end, the living of it, and while blogging is fun and real, life has to be lived too. You know what I mean...take care, and I really hope things settle down for you and your family soon. Hugs.

Life can be rough sometimes, and I hope the stress and trauma will pass soon. My year has been kind of rocky too. I hope things get better for you soon and we'll hear from you again.

Many hugs to you too, Chris. I miss you and I think it's good you're taking care of yourself. I'm so sorry about what happened, whatever it may be, and I hope things get better soon. <3 & hugs.
