Those who have tried blogging know that it is sometimes a struggle. There are times when words seem to dry up and there is nothing going on in one’s life that is worth writing about. Other times , blogging seems a waste of time and one wonders if there is any point to it , that nobody is interested in what one has to say. This has happened to me many times in my almost seven years of writing this blog. However, in all this time , I only stopped writing twice : once , for 5 months in 2010 and then again at the end of July this year. This is my first post since July 28th.
This time , the reason for the hiatus was different. We had decided last year to move to an Active Adult Community in Somerset , NJ 20 or so miles from where we lived in Edison and, September end, we finally made the move. We left Edison where we had lived for over 41 years , 21 of them in the same house. September 28th was our last day in the old house and we are currently marking time until our new house is completed. It was to have been completed August 1st but it is now scheduled for December 15th. I only hope they keep this date.
Anyway, we are presently ensconsed in a 14th floor apartment in the heart of New Brunswick and loving it . Now that the nitty gritty of moving is temporarily over , I have time to blog again . I’m back and I will have several interesting things to write about , I have been reading the New York Times online and I feel myself getting smarter and more interesting every day… just like the guy in the Holiday Inn Express ad.
