She reads books as one would breathe air, to fill up and live. – Annie Dillard
Hi my readers.
So I promised that I would be more of a "real girl" in my posts.
If you didn't notice, my posts have been lacking and reviews have slowed down to a snails pace. Well...
The reason for this is that I've been depressed. With depression comes the lack of motivation or will to do anything.
My blog is always on my mind and it sucks to not have the energy every day to try to do something for my blog. And this also means that some of the Friday's that I have my Featured Author posts may not get done until I can eke out some energy to do so.
My depression is due to grief. January 8th I lost one of the most important people in my life, my great uncle. It wasn't expected, in many ways. He did have cancer, but he died from a heart attack, not the cancer. My uncle wasn't just my uncle. He was a father figure and he was one of my best friends.
It's a little easier to handle every day, but I definitely do feel this overwhelming sadness when I think about how I can't ever just call him again. Or I can't hear that belly laugh that would turn into this hilarious wheezing laugh. Or the forever long stories he'd tell about some show or movie he watched. It's really tough.
I know that time will heal this wound but right now it's pretty raw and I'm still learning to deal with it.
Thankfully I have some really awesome family members and awesome friends. They're trying to keep me out of the deep abyss and I'm so lucky to have them.
When I do have energy, like right now, I am trying to use it productively and work on my blog. But for authors who are looking for their interviews or reviews, I do apologize for the lateness of it. I'm trying, very much so. Just please be patient with me.
