Eleven Days

That is how long it's been since I've blogged. 

In that time:
  • Work has been insane.
  • My condo has not sold.
  • Maddie and Riley have been sick.
  • I've instituted a new plan to go running a few times a week before the kids get up.
  • I've read the book Cloud Atlas.
  • Riley has blossomed as a puzzle-doer.
  • I've been slothful about cooking, cleaning, and most other basic life pursuits.
The truth is that my mind is totally preoccupied with Potentially Very Exciting and for Now Unbloggable situation that I mentioned a while ago, and because so much of my mental energy is expended on that, I find that I have little else to say. And since I have little time in which to say very little, I don't blog. And lo, eleven days pass and I wish I could think of something to say besides this drivel.

But for now, I can't.

What's been up with you? Hopefully something more interesting than what's been up with me. Dum dee dum dee dum . . .

We know its been 11 days ;) I'm sorry about the condo. Your sick of hearing it, but it simply is the market in which your trying to sell. It will go..... Your just keeping us cyper friends hanging with this potentially good news!! Happy weekend. Even Michigan weather has finally broke and we are promised an 80 degree day tomorrow!!

I miss getting more info from you but think it's great that something covert's going on in your life!

I'm recovering from surgery and convinced my surgeon to let me go back to work on May 5...by promising that I would sit on my ass and be a good girl. Promise!

Just came to your site about an hour before this post since I was thinking my RSS feed must be broken. It's NOT, obviously! Excited about the new "stuff" going on in your life. Hopefully one day it will become bloggable! ;-)

I loved Cloud Atlas. What did you think?

Excited to eventually hear about the Unbloggable Situation. :)

I wasn't a fan of Cloud Atlas, although I rarely like books that feel a little sci-fi. What did you think?

shmo said...

Glad to get your wave to the peanut gallery! I've definitely been missing your posts.

Snick,
I am out on severance and looking to change careers to the children's publishing industry.
Any advice??

I think there's something going around in the blogosphere. Stress, illness, and general blog funks. Hope you are able to have a fantastic weekend!

...withdrawal...shakes...

haha. I totally understand what that's like. If there's something really deep going on, but I can't talk about it, then I have nothing to say!

I hope you can blog about it soon.

jules said...

What is it with all of this sickness in April, anyway? Aren't we supposed to be past that?

Signed,
Wondering how long it's going to be before we find out exactly what this unbloggable situation might be.

I was thinking of you during Idol on movie night when Kris sang "Falling Slowly" from the movie Once. I would not have seen that movie except that you recommended it. I liked the movie and loved the song, so I was excited to hear it on Idol. All this is a long-winded way of saying thanks for pointing me toward that movie!

You will never be boring even when you are hiding something very, very exciting. We can see the twinkle in your eye all the way from here....

One word for you: Tease!

It couldn't be (potentially) happening to a better person (whatever it is).

Your condo / my job. The race is on now isn't it... I hope it is a tie and I hope it is soon!

You are on my mind a lot lately.

Ooooh. I am excited to hear about Unbloggitibility, whenever that comes out.

Been thinking of you, and checking your blog more often than I probably want to admit.

Rev Dr Mom said...

I've fallen off the blogging bandwagon, too. I think sometimes we just need to BE...at least that's what I've been doing.

And I hope all the balls you're juggling, including the unbloggable ones, fall into place.

Aimee said...

Man, I CANNOT WAIT to hear what this new, " Potentially Very Exciting and for Now Unbloggable situation" is.

Here's to your condo selling very soon!

Anne said...

I'm glad you're running again. You go, girl. :-)

Ginevra said...

what's up with me? Well, I had a baby yesterday. :-) I will email u with details but couldn't resist the urge to share my interesting news, since u did ask. FWIW I haven't blogged in about, oh, 9 months. XO, j

Karyn said...

Yes, I am so with you on the not-blogging for a while... I just don't "feel" it right now--although I tend to still check other blogs and wonder why others aren't blogging. :-) But, it's nice to hear a bit from you. I always look forward to your news, but even more so now. Take care.

Jane said...

The suspense is killing me with this unbloggable thing!

I really liked Cloud Atlas too. I keep meaning to read his newer novel, Black Swan Green, but haven't gotten my hands on a copy yet.

Also, re your comment on my recent blog post -- I am so glad to hear that my twins aren't the only little brutes in town. I really do think the twin dynamic has something to do with it.
