It’s been two weeks since we had to say goodbye to our Morgan and our little family is trying to find the ‘new normal without her. I’m okay…until I open my mouth to actually talk about her. I can write about her, I can think about her, but I say her name and burst into tears. Our cats are our family, our little ones, and no matter how long it’s been, I still miss the ones we’ve had to say goodbye to.
I need to get back to my elimination diet because I felt so good on it (if hungry–there wasn’t much food). I haven’t slipped too badly but I am giving myself grace over it because frankly, I lost a beloved fur baby and frankly, I don’t give AF that I went off the diet. Reactions, however, aren’t a good thing so it’s time to get back to it.
I took an intensive writing conference, and will be processing info for weeks. I think it will be good for me, having deep thoughts to mull over. It will give me focus. One of the things I realized is that I really want to build my blog community. I LOATHE dealing with Facebook, and I am so irritated that they’ve throttled organic reach to push authors into buying more and more ads. I love my Youtube channel, but it’s labor intensive so I’m cutting down on the frequency of my vids. Patreon made me feel odd. Twitter’s toast. IG is fun but not the place I hang out. Soooo…yeah, blogging is where I feel most comfortable. I love writing blogs, I love having time to think out what I want to say. I also love the fact that I can blog as short or long as I want.
Anyway…just thinking my way through the evening. Missing Morgan. And just…ready to make some changes that I think will be good for me, as a writer, and as a woman/person.
How are you peeps doing? Let me know!
