I'm Back.......or at least I think I am

First things first:
  • I'm alive and as well as an overweight, diabetic smoker with high blood pressure, hypothyroidism and serious spinal problems can possibly be.  
  • I've been "gone" for almost 3 years.  Most of that time was spent sucked into Tumblr.  I deleted my Tumblr account - jossisgod - about 6 months ago.  
  • While I've been gone I've lost several more cats, mostly due to old age.
  • My current mood is a mixture of FEAR & ANGER.  Needless to say, for those of  you who have read my blog in the past, it should be obvious that the recent election is the cause for my mood.  As a result of said mood, I've been avoiding the news, whether on or off the internet.  I make occasional forays onto my Twitter account, also @jossisgod btw.  My respect and adoration for Joss Whedon has remained firmly intact, needless to say.
Honestly, at this point, I don't have anything in particular that I feel the need to share or to rant about.  I just wanted to put up a post to let folks know that I'm back on this blog.  Part of the reason it's taken so long - besides life interfering - is that I'd lost my password and access to my recovery email account.  For whatever reason, I decided to try again yesterday and VOILA! I was able to get back into my Ecocatwoman account.  I hope you will bear with me for a bit until I get back into the habit of writing and expressing myself and even sharing with others. 

Since retiring in February, 2015 I've become somewhat of a hermit, choosing to stay home and have as little interaction as possible with the world outside.  My last year in my job was traumatic, to say the least.  My self confidence had been beaten to a pulp and left me with a need to run and hide away.  My trust in others was seriously damaged.  I went into a forced hibernation and have, only recently, felt like stepping back into the world.  Consider this me "testing the waters" and taking baby steps.
