I did somewhat on my other blog (READ MORE HERE), but that took a HUGE chunk of the "hockey enthusiasm" out of me and I think I was (still am, a little) in a type of "hockey depression" (even moreso than I usually am during the off-season which, I'm sure, most of you can understand!)!!
This is actually how big of a HOCKEY FAN I am ... some of that stuff affected me so intensely that all the enjoyment I get out of watching, reading, listening to, talking / blogging about hockey was just squashed and I literally haven't had any desire to have anything to do with it for awhile (THUS no posts since then). I think I'm on the upswing for right now, but I'm not promising anything because I also feel badly when I don't come through for you with my promises ... I want to enjoy this again and I want this to be for FUN and not become work like it has been for me, soooo ...
I actually came on here to post something to "hold you guys over," but once I started this I ended up writing a pretty therapeutic post (and ended up explaining myself in the process!) ... things DO happen for a reason and I'm hoping all of you understand (perhaps can even relate a little!)!
ONE MORE THING before I move on to the real reason I began this post ... THANKS TO ALL OF YOU for sticking through this with me yet again!! I appreciate your loyalty more than you will ever know especially since these hiatuses can be frequent at times!! Blogging is enjoyable, but I consider it such a BONUS / BENEFIT to have great readers, followers, friends because of it!! THANKS, also, for those of you who continued to email me and post things on my Facebook wall ... for those of you who haven't received an answer, please continue to be patient as I will get back to you (it's always a goal of mine to get back to as many of you as I can!)!!
OK ... now I'll move on to the real business at hand (it can serve as a little gift of appreciation to all of you, as well, if you haven't already seen it!)!!
