My Apologies

I've been fairly absent from this blog the last few months and I apologize for that.

I moved back to Virginia from Maine in January after taking a leave of absence from work for depression and anxiety and honestly, those two things just hadn't gotten any better after the change. Lots of things have gone on recently and not so recently that have made it difficult to write, as well as difficult for any improvement as far as the depression and anxiety are concerned.

I've also been at a loss for things to write about, honestly. With my book blog it's easy, I write about the books I read and love. Here, I have to be creative. :-P And sometimes I'm all out of that kind of juice.

I'm still researching homeschooling and am still planning on going that route with Alanna come the fall. It's a lot to do and a lot to plan for, but I've been fortunate enough to have help from some of my old classmates from highschool and some friends from back in Maine.

I'm also going through a pretty ridiculous divorce that is the source of all kinds of irritation. But that can only last so long and then things are over and done with. My advice in this situation? Make sure you truly know who you're marrying when you marry them. You don't want to look back on however many years of your life that you spent with a person and wish that you could take them back. Do them over. I love his family though. With all my heart. And at least one good thing came out of it all. :-) The pretty little 3 year old who's asleep in the next room.

So if anyone has questions, or if there is anything you would like to see me write about, please don't hesitate to let me know! I will try and start writing regularly again soon.


  1. Tara, I didn't even realize it had come to this with everything. I'm so sorry to hear that you've been going through such a rough time of it with your anxiety and depression, and now the divorce. Even in the best circumstances marriage is difficult and I know you guys have had many hurdles to jump. I'll keep you in my prayers. I wish you well with homeschooling, too! :)

    Lots of hugs,

  2. Thank you Carla. It's ok. I probably could have saved myself a lot of the anxiety if I had been insistant on ending things when I first realized I should. But hindsight is 20/20.

    I appreciate the prayers!
