I'm Ba-ack!

What the Hell Happened?
Have you forgotten me, gang? I wouldn't be surprised if you had. It's been more than a year since my last confession, er, blog, and that's a long cotton-pickin' time.

I've missed you--no kidding--but I needed the time away to do some deep healing. Following a long period of illness last year, my dad passed away. The stress of his death combined with a really sucky year took me down...way down (I think I saw Pennywise down there with me...and yes, I was floating...facedown mostly). I'll spare you the gory details of my emotional demise, but suffice to say, it wasn't pretty. It was the yearlong version of the Oprah ugly cry...super-sobber...tearville...brain-dead valley. You get the picture.

As these things tend to be, my recovery was an uphill journey. I can honestly say, I learned a lot along the way, and now I think I'm ready to enjoy the ride again (hopefully, downhill and by the seat of my comfy pants, squealing all the way!). I may hit a few bumps along the way, but I'll keep rollin'.

So Glad to See You!
I really am thrilled to be back in the blogging/writing saddle again, and I'm so glad to see YOU! I hope you'll stick with me. I'll do my best to entertain you and make your time with me not-sucky. Heck, I even have some work being published this year. Yee-Haw!

Well, gang, I know it's not much of a start, but I'm ba-ack. :-)

Wickedly Yours,
Fran Friel
