One would think that I packed up my suitcase, grabbed my passport (the one that I do not own) and jetted off to some exotic location to see what the rest of this world has to offer.
Wishful thinking, huh?
Although that would have been an ideal explanation, there is nothing exciting to report. I've simply been living the simple life. Sorry to disappoint.
I've been hanging around in pajama pants,
checking my social feeds,
eating ice cream in dangerous quantities,
watching ratchet reality television programs,
practicing the art or isolation,
stalking the thredUP site for fashionable finds (here's $20)
distancing myself from negativity,
dying my hair blonde and black within months of each other,
arguing with my teen about his video-gaming,
and conquering the world of potty training with my toddler (Please check out OH CRAP! POTTY TRAINING: Everything Modern Parents Need to Know to Do It Once and Do It Right by Jamie Glowacki. You can thank me later.)
Err, I mean, COME BACK! Things are about to heat back up. It may be a bit lukewarm in the beginning (like the beach water was in Ocean City, MD when we visited in June). But, I promise I won't leave you hanging (as much) like I have in these past few months.
Summer seems to have gotten the best of me. Not a bad problem to have, I guess.
I thought about updating with a post on several occasions. You know the ones that state the obvious about how I haven't posted in awhile, that I'll be back soon and how deeply sorry I am for letting my blog go down the drain? Yeah, that one.
Then, I realized that no one really cares. There are like fifty-million blogs and sites on the Internet to troll. My little piece of the online world would surely not cause any one (or two) of my readers to lose any sleep. Shout-out to you both. Ha!
Speaking of sleep, I have yet to get any. This little toddler of mine has decided I must pay the consequence of being a parent. It can't all be perfect Instagram pictures and worthy Facebook posts from my little guy. I have to work for this motherhood gig.
While I've been missing in action from this particular outlet, I have been making an appearance elsewhere. Are you following me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Periscope (@keonte), Google +...down the street? I kid, I kid. But I do want you to check me out on the sites that I mentioned. Sometimes it is just easier to do a quick share rather than compose an entire post of rambling (which is where this post is heading).
I have so much stuff to dump on you, I can hardly contain my excitement. You're going to want to sign-up to receive updates to my blog (or at least read one post, then unsubscribe while I wreck my brain trying to figure out why you would do such a thing).
Don't go waiting for some extra awesome announcement about me being invited to take over Harpo studios. My heart would have immediately stopped upon being asked and I would have never made it to this blog to share the news. I'm just glad that I haven't been invited to be on the Maury show. **wipes brow
For now, I'll be slowly working on getting my voice back to the place that has helped me in so many aspects of my life. I may even do some re-arranging and dusting off. Who knows?
If you're reading this, thank you for sticking around (I couldn't find my Drake album cover font for this sentence).
