When Doing the ‘Right’ Thing Feels SO Wrong.

First things first, I’ve been a super crappy blogger.  Part of it is the fact that I’ve been super busy, and part of it is that I’m out of the blogging groove, and when you lose your writing routine, it’s the same as losing your running or healthy eating routine.  It doesn’t come easily, you have to work at it, and it’s not second nature any longer.  You really have to make the effort to make it happen.  And I just haven’t been making that effort.  So, I do apologize for that.  I do love blogging, so I have to make an effort to fit it in.
