Unlike the Freakout Flatline of 2010, my most recent blogging disappearance has simply been the case of me living life. Outside of the Internet.
At first I was all sad and sloppy and itching to be with you here in this small space of chasing rabbits. And then I found myself in Hobby Lobby. Where Jesus and decorative pillows meet.

- Could God be speaking to me in this religiously-infused retailer?
- Am I living a life worth blogging and tweeting about?

The blogging break wasn't without moments of great plotting and planning.
Some involved fixing the child and family welfare system. Some involved combining my birth and THE MOST PHENOMENAL GAME THAT WILL EVER BE.

Most importantly...I was present for this.
Now back to balancing living life and hugging this small space of chasing rabbits that I quite like.
What about you? How do you balance it all?
