{The Reason for the 7 month blog escape}

Wow, it doesn't really seem like I was gone a whole seven months, but I was. There were several factors in my sudden disappearance from blog land one being that I was over stressed at home with so many people living with us and between the chaos they all brought and the upheaval it brought into my home I think I started to pull further and further into myself and away from the things and people I enjoyed. 

I know I have depression tendencies but can mostly stave them off with some "ME" time, although now I realize I never got my "ME" time but at the time I couldn't seem to figure out why I was spiraling. I pulled away from everything, including photography and my camera. My crafting suffered as well and it didn't help that my carpal tunnel was making it harder to create the items I love which in turn made me sink further into my own self pity. Of course this only hindered everything else in my life too.

I didn't realize how much my life was being bogged down by the constant stream of guests in and out of our home until after they were all gone and suddenly I could breathe again and finally my house was my home and sanctuary again! It's only been a few months of NO GUESTS but I can feel myself getting back to normal. I am even picking up my camera again editing them in a timely manner. 

My depression is still here but it's fading and though I know it won't ever fade and will come back in spurts, I don't want to feel so alone while surrounded by so many again. I haven't felt that way in a very long time and I don't ever want to feel that way again. Slight depression is what I am more capable of dealing with and living with and can manage. What I was mired in during the past seven months was exhausting and overall draining. I'm glad I am pulling out of it.

My goal is to start posting once or twice a week and work my way back up to daily posts about the happenings in my chaotic little world. I also hope to get back into the things that I pulled away from during the past seven months. 

I know the next few months will be a crazy as I try to get into a homeschooling routine with the kids and get myself back into a good frame of mind to enjoy my life to the fullest again. I am hopeful and know because I can breathe again life will become easier and the goals I set will be achieved.

So starts my journey to a better mental state, better health and overall happiness and joy for life that I lost and want to regain back.


  1. Good for you, dearling! Love, Love you!

  2. Welcome back to the blogosphere, Arya! I'm so glad you are taking time for yourself. I'm not much for keeping in touch and the like, but if you ever need to talk or vent or whatever- I'm here for you!

  3. I caught on to your blog a while back. Glad that you're blogging again. Guests (no matter how much you love them) can really exhaust you, I know!! You can never truly relax. You have a lot on your plate and I can tell that you mean so much to so many people. None of us have our acts together. We just do the best we can and say "oh well" to everything else. :) Have a lovely day.
