I'm back

I'm back to blogging.

So, what happened? A week ago, I was feeling despondant. I don't know for sure, but I think it may have been due to getting off schedule with my antidepressants rather than anything major going on in my life at the time.

That night I went to mutual. The activity was doing some yard work for a sister in our ward. Afterwards I went back to the church building and stayed another hour or so helping the Bishop with a few things. When I got back home I was feeling a lot better. Those simple little, almost insignificant, acts of service made me realize that I need to stop thinking about myself so much.

Anyway, I was feeling much better the day after my last post; but, I needed to prove to myself that I'm not addicted to blogging - that I could quit anytime if ever deemed necessary. So, I set a goal to go 1 week blog free.

And, I made it! I have not looked at any blogs since last Wednesday. But, I have missed my blogging friends and am anxious to see what is going on in everyone's life.

A fate worse than death

2) Start a 5000 piece puzzle.

I'd probably be less than half way through picking out all of the edge pieces before I lost interest.

3) Begin your cat collection.

Cat's hate me!

4)read the entire harry potter collection back-to-back.

Not that! Anything but that! I tried to read it once. But, I think I got to page 3 in book 1 before I got bored.

btw, am I the only one who didn't think the latest movie was that great? (my least favorite of the series)

5)watch the super-duper extended version of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. and all the side bar stuff that goes with it.

Ya know, when it got to the end, I didn't really care that much for Frodo anymore. He was kind of whiny. I was thinking "Sam, just pick up Frodo and throw him in and be done with it!"

6) talk politics/economics with sean.

Well, I would, but I haven't seen you online in a few days

Okay Abe, glad to know you're not a bloggoholic and are well and good.

So go ahead, feed MY bloggoholism: what's the next hot 'Enigma' topic?

How about...

1) Ice cream and other compulsive habits in the Moho community.

2) Homophobic LDS cultural traditions and terrorist MoHo activities at church events.

3) Prevalence of ADHD in Moho's; our attention to detail, but inability to deal with it longterm. (Judging from your dismissive responses to the tedious time-consumers tendered by concerned readers.)

4) Viability of VT programs in the Moho community (you know what I mean!)

Cheers.

Someone once told me that Utah leads the nation with the most ice cream consumed per capita. Is this really true? Or is this just another Mormon urban myth?

2) Homophobic LDS cultural traditions and terrorist MoHo activities at church events.

Hmmmm. Not sure I would want to touch this one. Got enough people out there who think I'm on the path to apostasy. Maybe I'll just stick with safe non-controversial topics, like masturbation and MoHo dating :)

3) Prevalence of ADHD in Moho's; our attention to detail, but inability to deal with it longterm. (Judging from your dismissive responses to the tedious time-consumers tendered by concerned readers.)

LOL! OK, you caught me. Yeah, I have AAADD

4) Viability of VT programs in the Moho community (you know what I mean!)

I know exactly what you mean. I think the idea has merit. I just don't know how to go about putting forward the idea with the other MoHo's.

It's good to "hear" your voice again.

You made it a week! Congratulations! I knew you could do it... That wasn't that hard now, was it? :)
