Blogger. Interrupted.

I'll admit it: my blogging hasn't been all that prolific as of late. No, really, it's true! I haven't been writing up to my potential, whatever the hell my potential is. Okay, I don't know what my writing potential is, but whatever it is, I think it's safe to say I haven't been attaining it. Throw that on to the towering stack of bodies that is my unattained potentials.

I could honestly write volumes about the fascinating world that is opening and trying to run a business, but to do so would potentially, unintentionally, expose some of our trade secrets, such as they are. . . whatever they are. So, I err on the side of guarded blogging, which is to say not blogging much at all.

I can say this whole store operating thing has been a complete 180 degree shift from the world of freelance writing and editing--which I still do, but it's on the back burner, because the store takes precedence.

We also have two kids, which is kind of a big deal, and not just because it's our responsibility to keep them alive. Until the store, hopefully, meets with financial success, we can't afford daycare--and even if we could, Zoey requires an increased level of care and attention we don't trust many others to provide--so each day is an exercise in improvisational logistics between running the store and caring for the kids.

Yes. There is stress. Stress is involved. I feel I should stress the stress. It's stressful.

The point is, with all of this taken together--with emphasis on the stress--penning blog entries, shall we say, isn't high on my priority list. I still want to keep my blog going, of course, because I've been writing for over ten years now, and it would be a shame to not keep it up. Besides, an argument can be made that this blog kept me somewhat sane back during our seemingly endless NICU ordeal.

So, I'm still here. Things have changed is all. Don't they always?

What is this "blogging"? Is it anything like Thunderjournaling?
