Hello friend

You know how you can have a really good friend, have lots in common, and really enjoy talking with them - and do, regularly - but then you lose touch with that good friend for months and months because life gets in the way and you feel like you just don't have a minute to dedicate to catching up or commiserating or asking for or offering help but you miss them and think of them often and would really like to talk with them again and you know you just need to set aside some time to catch up because it's so important but so much time has gone by and you start to feel really awkward about picking up the phone or sending an email because all that time has passed so you think about it and think about it and wonder how you would start the conversation after so much time has gone by?

....

Hello, friend. I've missed you. How have you been?

DUDE! I was so happy to see you pop up in my RSS.

So hello. It's great to see you here. We've missed you too.

OK THAT is a little creepy. I was thinking about how it had been a while since you blogged and clicked over here YESTERDAY to see if maybe you had moved urls or something, but Blogger was giving an error on your homepage (seriously... one of those weird bX-21hjg3 thingies).

Anyhow. I'm glad you're OK.

You know you're a well-rounded person when you're comfortable carrying on a conversation with your blog, right? I do enjoy reading your words. Glad to have you back.

Come join us for a drawing. Three books to be given away. Sometimes, being a follower is the most fun.

Why yes, I do have a few friends like that. The wonderful thing about good friends is that you CAN pick up where you left off. Hello friend!

Hello, friend. Spring must be in the air; accounts for all the blog posts in my reader and mud on my floor.

Heather said...

I, too, was thinking of you and there you were when I decided to sit down with my reader today.

Hope all is well!!

Fairly Odd Mother said...

Yes, tis glad to see you this morning.

We're fine and enjoying this lovely, lovely weather. I hope it warms you like a big hug from the internets.

Lara said...

I missed you TOO! Also, my four readers probably miss me, 'cause it's been a few weeks...

Debbie, i obsess said...

Lordy, yes.

Will you please stop reading my thoughts aloud to your public and write something of your own, Chicky? SHEESH.

(Miss you, too. Wrote nearly the same post today myself about missing you, and, well, life in general, really. Winter needs to end for good right now so I can get out of hibernation mode.)

For the first time since I started blogging, I was sidelined by work and househunting...and sheer exhaustion, for a week.

(And if I'm honest, those posts that I did manage to write? Not even close to anything I'd want anyone to read.)

TheOtherElle said...

Good to hear that you feel the same way about us that we feel about you! We missed you...but good friends can pick up the conversation right where we left off, without missing a beat.

Glad you are back, friend!

Jennie said...

I was happy to see you in my feed reader, too!

Joe @ IrrationalDad said...

Wassup Chicky Chicky!!?!?!?

A Vapid Blonde said...

OH Hai! Have you lost weight...my god your hair I love it. Lets go get pedicures!!!

Christina said...

I've been that friend as well.

But the best part is, once one of the friends reaches out to connect again, the friends fall right back into conversation as if no time has passed at all.

Good to see you again!

I know how it is...I'm in the same boat. I miss my friends in the blog world... Life, family is getting in the way, and that's okay. We can always come back when the time is right.

Glad you're back!

i feel this everyday too...i thought i was just feeling lonely and that i felt i would bother my friends if i suddenly email or txt them..oh well, i should have done it

Alice Van-Weed said...

it's really normal to miss your friends, eh..i used to deny that feeling because it might mean im living an unhappy life..i dont want to think that way...
