Amazingly enough, today is this blog’s second birthday-Yay!
I really wish I had something witty, articulate, humorous, and lightly insightful to write here. Instead, I had The World’s Most Painful Leg Cramp Ever.
Apparently it took getting so run down and dehydrated that there was not enough moisture in my body to keep it running without my muscles seizing up into painful knots at 5 o’clock in the morning for me to realize that, “Hm, I seem to be running on empty here.”
In The Artists Way Julia Cameron talks about going on artist’s dates with yourself in order to keep your creative well filled. As I sat down to list all the things I’ve done since I marked my previous blog-a-versary and the list got to be six pages with still no end in sight, I realized that I’ve perhaps let my well run a little bit dry.
And so I’ve decided to give myself a little vacation from blogging. Not like I usually do, where I can’t think of anything to write and don’t post for a week, all the while worrying and obsessing about the fact that I’m not writing. No, this time I’m taking a vacation in my mind. I’m giving myself permission not to think about my blog for the rest of this week. I’m gonna take a little time to refill my well.
So thank you all so much for sticking with me for the past two years. Here’s to many more “entertaining stories from everyday life.”
I’ll see ya when I get back.

Having leg cramps is never fun. As a child, my youngest sister used to get them because she didn’t initially drink enough milk. What’s your calcium intake like these days?
My marathon runner friends have been known to develop cramps from over-exerting themselves. Perhaps you’re the kind of athlete who discovers physical limits once you have surpassed them? This can build great mental endurance.
Then again, as you’re a new homeowner, you may simply feel compelled to initiate fix-it jobs which enable you to discover muscles you never knew you had. All the power to you and your continued physical and mental self-discoveries!
Well done!! You deserve a vacation. Enjoy!
