not a hoax

When you inexplicably disappear from your blog, it's tricky to jump right back in. You can't just ignore the fact that you've been gone for two weeks, yet you're too lazy/ashamed to explain why you've been a deadbeat blog parent (or, you just have no good excuse).

It's similar to when someone has been mispronouncing your name for so long that you decide it would just be too embarrassing to correct them and let it carry on forever.

You have to finesse your way back into the blog habit by subtly acknowledging that you've been absent. Or, in my case, giving your husband nightmares that you're slowly morphing into Joaquin Phoenix.

All that to say... I'm still here. Promise.
