I haven’t blogged in quite some time, and that’s because the last two months of my life have been a wild rollercoaster ride complete with accomplishments, turmoil, and setbacks. The funny thing is: I didn’t purchase the tickets to this ride, they were given to me; unfortunately, I had no option to decline them. Last week, I thought the ride had ended. I believed it was over, so I unbuckled my seatbelt and stepped out of the coaster seat with a sense of pride; knowing that I had weathered the storm and survived. I was relieved that the nightmare was finally over and that life would continue on in its typical fashion…that was last week. Today however is a different story completely; if I were a betting man and had known that this morning’s weather was any indication of how my day would turn out, I’d be rich beyond my wildest dreams. Unfortunately, I’m not psychic, and today’s gloomy rainy morning didn’t set off any precursors to let me know that I was in for one hell of a ride.
A peace offering. How could be mad at these faces?
Wow, it has been quite a while hasn’t it? Really, 5+ months since my last post? A lot can happen in 6 months huh? But is 6 months really that long? I know a ton of things that can’t get accomplished in less than 6 months, let’s see: you can’t obtain a college degree in 5 months, you can’t walk from New York to California in less than 6 months, and apparently you can’t pass a bill in Congress in less than 5 months. So you see 6 months really isn’t a long time to stop blogging, based on the previous examples, some things of far lesser extent take much longer!
Guess what folks; I got interviewed about this blog! How cool is that? I think it’s awesome. The good folks over at Black Unlimited contacted me and expressed their fondness for Daddy’s Fish Bowl and requested the opportunity to ask me a few questions about the blog. Well you know me, being the media whore that I am, I couldn’t resist. It was a fun experience and I’m very thankful for the opportunity to participate. I can already see the jealousy in Oprah’s eyes because she didn’t get this exclusive interview! I foresee her kicking herself for many moons to come about missing this opportunity, lol.
While you’re there, please feel free to checkout all of the other great content that the site has to offer. They have feature interviews with photographers, designers, and even film makers. There’s something for everyone so enjoy.
So did you guys miss me? I know, it’s only been 3 days, but still, that seems like an eternity to me; as you know, bloggers don’t get any paid vacation. Well, even if you didn’t miss me, I sure missed you. Writing is something that I really enjoy doing & what can be better than writing about your family? I mean seriously, doing something that you enjoy (writing) and it’s about something you enjoy (family), it doesn’t get much better than that.
So I’ve made a few changes around the site recently and want to get your feedback on them, as well as how things are going in general. Read on to find out what’s new and share you thoughts, concerns, questions, etc.
