Blogging...Just a Phase?

I feel like I need to get back to blogging on something of a more steady schedule. I miss it. Unfortunately, at this point I tend to forget about it totally. But I love to get comments and it is time to get back in the saddle!

I really need to get back on the ball when it comes to blogging. I tend to do get really into something and then drop it or at least massively scale back. I'm not sure why I do this, but I do know it is genetic.

My dad does the exact same thing; usually my hobbies aren't as expensive as his. He spent a year or two buying Jeeps and doing body work on them and re-selling them. This went on until I asked him to pain my truck...it got painted, but never did get buffed out, so it was never shiny. He bought a portable sawmill and got into that, but never managed to get the lumber cut for mom's deck extension. He does still use it to build his outer-buildings on the farm though... He got us all sucked into going to the lake during the summer, and for several years we would go 2 or 3 weekends a month during the summer. He bought a pontoon boat and a camper and took diving lessons. He even bought me diving lessons one Christmas. Now we haven't been to the lake in over 2 years!

I've dabbled in lots of things over the years: candle making, scrap booking (even sold Creative Memories products for years), bought a telescope, built a fish pond in the back yard (it's all grown over and the irises have become one giant blob of roots, so I can't fix it back up), I've started to write several books over the years but don't get past the planning stage (actually writing one seems too daunting) and I even go hot and cold on my photography even though I love doing it (currently in a cool phase-not quite cold). Blogging is just another thing in a long list of activities and hobbies that have run cold over the years.

I know I can't be the only person out there who does this.
