How to: Come Back

katherine holmgren, beaverdamusa.comIn the last three days I have broken a trampoline and been bit by a dog. I don’t mean to brag–I know you don’t need that from me. But I wanted you to know what’s been going on, you know, in case you’ve been wondering why my guard has been up.

The last month has been a terrible case of writer’s block for me. I have learned that moving, starting a new job, and living in a house that has no basic appliances or internet can really take the creativity out of a person. That person being me. But I’m bouncing back slowly but surely. Yesterday I made it through a whole day without having to take a nap!

I think moving back to the Midwest is going to end up being a really good thing. Goodbye soda, hello pop! Goodbye cramped city life, hello open spaces! Goodbye living comfortably, hello living in a construction zone with no internet for at least two months! You get the idea.

Thank you for your patience as I pull together a new normal. I think I’m going to have a lot of stories to tell. We are having a funeral for the trampoline this weekend so that’s something. Also, I need to find the dog that bit me to make sure I don’t have rabies. Please think of me when the next full moon appears.
