I'm Back

22 August 2012

So I've been having one of those weird "Why do I even blog?" weeks. 

Honesty time??

I've been in a funk generally. Money gets tight in August in the Rhodes Casa because Mama doesn't get paid in the summertime. I start school next week which is good because of the $$ involved, but I love summer, and I don't want it to be over, and it just got hot in So Cal. And I like heat in the summer.

I had a dear friend from come visit over the weekend. We had a lovely time, but now that she's gone she made the Texas shaped hole in my heart even bigger than normal.

My little sister is abroad for the semester, and the fact that she isn't a text message away is driving me bonkers.

End of summer has me suffering from a general decline in hygiene. My fingers and toes and leg hair and head hair are all in dire need of attention. Jacob is gone at a networking event this evening which deprives me of any hope of even showering today. 

I've been trying to break the cycle. I did laundry yesterday; I took my laptop into the apple store for a doctoring; and I made a decent dinner. So...mildly productive. But all it takes is some mediocre muffins and a dud loaf of sourdough this morning, and I'm right back where I started. 

So no. I haven't felt like blogging. Writing always forces me to have some perspective on life, and I've preferred to remain in my grumpy corner counting grievances.

And then Grace goes and shares her little secret, and I got all sappy and sentimental about this blogland and readers coming in droves out of their stalker caves to share in her excitement. I remembered that I love being a part of it. I love celebrating with you all.

That's it. No pictures. 

Ok. Just one. (I even busted out the real camera for you because I'm feeling so inspired.)



  1. oh thanks Kate!!

    love your candor.

    Gosh I wish I could zip right over with the kids and let you shower and then we could throw them in their cages and drink something strong in moderation.

    and why did I say Gosh?

    you know I wish you would blog every single day.

    I'll keep wishing.

  2. Awwww...he is a super cutie. Real camera or not! :) Glad you have rejoined the blogging world!

  3. Discovered your blog not to long ago! You've got a great writing voice!

  4. I missed your writing and pictures every single day!

  5. You know what? I miss you!
    I'm really hoping you can come out to the wedding. It's going to be May 3rd, and to sweeten the deal, you can meet the whole clan of Campers! ;)

    It's nice to hear that other people can be in funks. Heck, I haven't blogged in 9 months! Now that's a blogging funk! I'm glad you're blogging again. I kept checking in my reader and kept seeing the intro about the sourdough starter and was like.....where is she?!?!
