Like a bad penny. . .

Hello there!  Some of you may remember me.  I used to go by the handle "Diary of a Mad Bathroom".

A little over a year ago, I was sailing through some rather choppy waters, personally and professionally.  I did not have the focus, time or sense of humor left to keep my blog going, so I folded up my tent and I retreated.

The funny thing was, I did not retreat for long.  The siren call of blogging was singing my name from a distant shore.  Unfortunately at that time, I had so much bitterness and stress, that I thought I needed to change my message and provide an outlet for others that were going through similar experiences.  This bitterness gave birth to my first ill-conceived attempt at blog re-entry:

The Only Water Cooler in Hell

Maybe it wasn't entirely ill conceived.  There are certainly plenty of people that have had miserable work experiences, who need a place to rant about it. I think I just burnt out fast because I was working from a place of negativity. Oh, and I was supposedly running it anonymously. Surprise! It's me (like you didn't know).

That didn't last very long.

Then I decided that I would start a food related blog.

The Pedestrian Palate

Over the years I had posted plenty of pictures and stories about my cooking and baking exploits on Diary of a Mad Bathroom.   So why not a food blog?  But again, the single threaded topic burnt me out quickly because there is so much more that I have to say than "hey I just baked some yummy brownies". Blech. Boring.

So here I am, back like a bad penny, hoping to tap back into all that I loved about blogging.  I can't wait to see what the blogging community has to offer, who's still around and who suffered from a similar identity crisis to mine.  Just this one post and I already feel better.   I hope the PTA didn't exhale, because I am back in the saddle and ready to start targeting their most heinous, bitchy and judgmental members. Warning - A Vera Bradley Bag and a luxury SUV is the same as a target to me.  Duck bitches!

Did you notice who was leaving all the comments on Water Cooler?? Yep....ME. Why? Because I love you and now I'm super excited to have you back!!! that my youngest is starting college, I'm officially out of the PTA lane....but I can live vicariously through you. I might even give you some good lines to lay on those controlling b*tches. :)

I just happened to glance at my reader and there you were resurrecting your blog! So glad to see you're back, and so glad I didn't do lose your feed when I changed over from Google Reader.

Looking forward to reading more.

Lin and Shelly - thank you so much for the awesome welcome back!

Brownie is still a wonder dog and spike is getting long in the tooth and weirder by the day. I can't wait to really dig in and get back to the business of blogging. Happy to see you ladies!

Thank you Empress. I miss the old days too.

I am happy to be back and even happier to see you.

Oh Thank God! I hoped that's what I was seeing. I just burnt some nasty cookies and I don't care. I'd rather have a good rant about the PTA : )

Diary of a Mad Bathroom said...

Aww girl, you burnt your cookies for me...I'm honored. XOXO

Oh my goodness. My prayers have been answered! I had resigned myself to re-reading your archives for the third time to occupy me for the balance of '13!

So great to have you back.
