Hello, Stranger



Be honest.  You're making that face right now.  You're also thinking, "WTF, Karla?!?! Where have you been?  What have you been doing? Why haven't we heard from you in so long?"

Valid questions every single one of them.  

Honestly, friends, 2014 just was not my year.  At. All.  Things happened.  Life (as it will do) changed.  There were ups and there were downs that I wasn't sure I'd pull myself out of.  There were lumpy dogs that freaked me out for a little minute until we found out that lumpiness was nothing to be concerned about.  There were births of new friends and family members.

And there was the loss of one of the most important people in my world.  Someone whose life was cut far too short.

Then, I disappeared for a little minute.  I couldn't handle the loss, so I just didn't.  I stayed home. I didn't talk to anyone, not on the phone or in person or even on the interwebz.  I went from being your garden variety introvert to a complete and total recluse.

I had my own private little pity party BECAUSE EVERYTHING SUCKED.

So, 2015 has got to be better, simply because things can't get any worse, right?

Usually, this it the time where everyone is making a boat-load of resolutions (or fighting to keep them as it is the 12th of the month), but I'm only going to make one:  


I'm not going to disappear again.

I know that doesn't sound like much, but believe me when I tell you, it'll be hella difficult.  But, that is my resolution.  Keep me on it, will ya?  I knew I could count on you, peeps.

In other news, how are your resolutions going for this new year?  Do share.
