Remember that gal, WM ? Yeah her, didn't she used to blog back in the day?

I've been jokingly referring to myself as the "former blogger" lately.

Why ?

Because although it's only been a little over a week since we were last together I feel as if I can barely manage to formulate a cohesive post. Right now quite frankly it feels like a chore.

I never evah thought I'd feel that way.

I'm just as content to slide under the radar right now and read about the fabulousness of other bloggers lives and put blogging about my own on hold. That said, I'm certainly not deserving of this fabulosity, bestowed upon me by my girl Alex.
In a word, Alex rawks. She's not afraid to touch upon that which may be considered controversial, she's not afraid to laugh at herself and has the best "lessons learned" at the end of her posts. So thank you,A. You know I dig you right back. And so that I might feel somewhat deserving of this award, I must make excuses explain why I've been absent and may continue to be over the next two weeks.

Without any further adieu, I give you my life in bullet points aka why I'm not blogging right now

  • Incredibly busy at work. End of January was hellacious. Boss now on vacation for the next 2 weeks. Trying to play acting director in her absence.

  • Incredibly burnt out. Despising work. Desperately fighting the urge to quit, cash out my retirement account and start my own business. Contemplate writing book about fantabulous idea. "How to sit on one's arse and simultaneously make money"

  • Oldest stepdaughter,TomGirl turning in to rebellious teen. Skipping school,lying and visiting taboo websites

  • Increasingly busy 4 1/2 year olds with tons of preschool activities

  • Trying to plan a family vacation to escape the madness, obsessing over everything. Is this the best hotel? is this the best time to go? Am I getting the right rate ? and in the end deciding nothing.

  • I'm sure there is more. There is always more. But thanks for hanging in there with me

    Hang in there. Sounds like you need a nice, long vacation!

    Hurry up and finish the book though. That is one that I would love to read!

    Maureen said...

    Ah, yes. Life. Sucks that it gets in the way of blogging, doesn't it?


    Hope things settle down for you soon.

    I completely understand! BUT...don't stay gone too long!

    I can't bear the thought of a WM free blogosphere!

    Stick to the nonsense...that's my motto! :)

    Hope you get a break soon!

    Everyone needs a break now and then! And I will get in line at the bookstore to buy your book, assuming I get an autographed copy.

    Biddy said...

    i have taken a few blog breaks. they are good for the soul...

    oh, and can i have the 1st autographed copy of the book? cause that's so up my alley!

    I think we're all kind of in the same boat right now.
    Busy as hell, yet nothing of any real interest going on, and no urge to post about it anyways.

    I've been contemplating how much blogging gets in the way of real life and vice versa.

    Hope you find a happy medium.

    Brillig said...

    I would TOTALLY buy that book. :-D Good luck with all the crazines...

    ~JJ! said...

    Hey, I remember you.

    Hee hee...

    Hope you get what you want...Start your own business...I wish I did that.

    Sorry to hear about the teen rebellion. I'll pray for you.

    You're doing better than I...I don't even make the time to read (but I think of you guys ALL the time..seriously.)

    Life gets in the way of fun and fun often takes on its own role of just Something Else You Gotta Do.

    Post when you have time. That's what Google Readers are for. :D

    Ally said...

    You've set the standards so high! I'd always be a "former blogger" if I had to blog more than once a week (or less)! I honestly don't know how you and others do it. Anyway, take your time, and come back when you're ready. I personally would like more details on the rebellious teenager, so that I can take notes for when our time comes.

    It's hard to find a good blogging balance. I've been behind in my blog reading lately. I absolutely love reading your blog. Thanks for the kind words.

    Cherann said...

    That's so funny because I called myself a former blogger before I even read this! (Scouts honor!) Life just kinda gets in the way of things.
