I just thought I'd relieve your fears and enable you to sleep peacefully again by letting you know that I am, in fact, still planning on posting here on this blog. I know, I know. You've been staring at your computer for the last 2.5 weeks waiting earnestly, tapping your fingernails on the table, checking your Google reader obsessively in hopes that I'll write a quick post telling you about all the ways that moving back home has me rethinking my entire identity and how I'm now writing a soon-to-be published book about the life-altering experience of returning to one's hometown.
Well, despite the fact that you are most likely not doing any of the above, I figured I'd still dash off a short post and let the world know that this will not be another abandoned blog, despite the lack of recent posting or of having interesting things to say of late. In case you were unaware, moving to another place and living with your family until you find another house of your own can be very time-consuming and requires heightened levels of emotional energy. There's also a lot of stress-eating and that takes up more time than you'd expect.
So, all this to say, I'll be posting interesting things here shortly. (i.e. recipes for possum stew and how to skin a squirrel in two minutes flat). So, prepare yourselves for true tales of life in my hometown where sweet tea and fried food rule and where "gizzards and livers" are proudly offered at local gas stations. It'll be a good time.
P.S. Don't feel too sorry for me. There are two Starbucks within twenty minutes, which means I'll probably survive.
