Dear Blog:

I’m sorry for neglecting you and I have missed you dearly.

Needless to say, time is a limited resource for me and you’ve paid the highest price.  I had devoted time to you during the small daily breaks that I have had to myself either in the early morning, nap time, or late at night.  But alas, I’ve been cheating on you.  There is another and his name is “Exercise.”  I made the choice to abandon you in order to fit into a pair of pre-pregnancy jeans.  How shallow of me?  I know.

But would you believe me when I say that I did it for your own good?

You see, Exercise has allowed me to have more energy.  It has lightened my mood and enhanced my creative spirit.  I no longer spend countless thoughts on a wardrobe I couldn’t touch or dreading a summer spent in maternity clothes (although the baby is 9 months old).  I am kinder to myself when it comes to the food I eat and the time I spend with my good friend, Exercise (with whom I have had a love-hate relationship).

I have come to terms with the reality of my life:  I must constantly choose how best to spend my time.

There are mornings and nights that I have tried to spend quality time with you after Exercise but it’s never worked out.  There have been hugs I’ve needed to give, a rolling baby I’ve needed to find, an impromptu concert I’ve needed to applaud, and my one true love needing my immediate attention – a Red Velvet Cupcake (just kidding, Ever-Patient).

I have about a dozen posts you’ve held onto patiently, waiting in the wings in the “Saved Drafts Folder.”  It’s time for my return to you – a love that I never knew I had until it ceased to exist in my life.

So let’s rewind and start anew.  We have a lot to catch up on.
