Don't Worry, I'm Not Dead

So a month came and went with no posts. I sat down in front of the computer one day and all of a sudden, I FORGOT HOW TO BLOG. No I swear. Too much time had passed and I felt like it would have to be this super dramatic explanation as to why I had disappeared for so long.

I pondered a few scenarios that would be interesting: I met this fantastically hot lawyer, fell madly in love and eloped in Ireland planning never to return to the States again; I won the lottery and have been spending all of my time shopping for new shoes and handbags and with all the guys who now want me for my money, I have a date every night; or my friends set me up to be on the next episode of the Bachelorette and I've been spending all of my time writing lists of the qualities I want in a man so FOX knows what 25 guys to pick for me.

The truth? LIFE. Simple as that.

While I wish I had won the lottery, met the man of my dreams, or something equally exciting, nothing of the sort has happened. My social calendar definitely exploded there for awhile. I was playing volleyball once a week, getting together for happy hours with friends (including Margarita Mondays), riding my bike, planning canoe trips, watching one of my best friends get married, spending quality time with my family, and of course the oh-so-familiar "D" word. Dating. Lots and lots of dating. I'm still really busy. In fact this week I have gotten home after 9 every night. Sometimes I feel like I never STOP AND BREATHE.

But you know what? I missed you guys. And I'm back.

Anyone still with me or did you all hit 'unsubscribe' after the month long hiatus? And for those of you reading, what the hell have you all been up to?!!

Megan said...

Hurray! You're back! You've been missed. :)

brandy said...

Glad you are back. I saw some of your margarita photos on facebook- you definitely look like you are having the summer of your life!

(And yes, I know... some people have tried to tell me that's turning into fall but I refuse to believe it.)

Vanessa said...

Great to see you back! I'm up to no fun, broke up with SO, trying to get house sold in terrible market, find a new job and figure out how to rebound from this mess. But I'm staying positive. Most days.

Yea! You're back! Claire and I have been having a blast this summer, and I can't believe it's September already!!

Katelin said...

You were away? What? Shit, I think I've lost a month of my life somewhere.

nancypearlwannabe said...

That's the beauty of RSS feeds! We're here when you get back. Sounds like you had a lovely summer- welcome back. :)

longredcape said...

Yay! I was wondering what had happened to you! I've been doing the "D" word, too. Ugh. It's so exhausting trying to analyze all these guys when they're probably just sitting around thinking about their next bowel movement.

3carnations said...

Welcome back! Glad you've been keeping busy!

Sara Jane said...

ChasingParadise said...

OMG Hiiiiiiiii! It's been so long. So many bloggers have just started dropping off the face of the Earth, so I'm really happy to see you're not one of them!

I can't wait to hear more dating stories :)

As for me, well still planning the wedding...but we finally have a date and place, so we're on track.

She's back from the dead! Hahaha. Clearly, based on all the comments, your readership did anything but delete you from their feeds. Myself included. Welcome back!

Passionista said...

I definitely understand completely! I'm trying to blog as much as possible but I'm on a two week stand still, since it's been busy, and now I don't know how to jump back in :-/ Glad your back, I've missed your posts.

lspoon said...

girlinterrupted1218 said...

Well welcome back girl! I took a little hiatus myself and just started blogging again. I have to say it felt good not to be strapped to my computer. But I did miss it.

Princess Pointful said...

Apparently, almost twelve billion of us missed you, but the looks of it!!

chasinglibby said...

Yoda said...

Its good that you didn't elope to Ireland. A friend of mine was there this past week and said the weather was dreadful :-p

Glad you're back!

Paula said...

I'm sad to say I've not been up to much. Busy working and drinking - not at the same time (mostly!) and I've been pretty skint so not been able to go out much. AND I've been trying to diet - unsuccessfully, mainly due to the aforementioned drinking! Glad you're back!

freeandflawed said...

Welcome back! Obviously we still love you :)

orangemagoric said...

I'm glad you're back! I was wondering where you went... although, I'm one to talk, since I stopped blogging for about two months, only to start again on a completely new blog. I decided to go anonymous... so I'm working on becoming a better blogger, but so far I'm still a sporadic poster.

Surfergrrl said...

Welcome back, and yeah for volleyball!!! I love it. I've played all summer.

k8mc said...

The Dutchess of Kickball said...

We are all still here, welcome back.

Trish Ryan said...

Welcome back. Every time I checked your blog, I wondered, "Is 'I'm not gonna write you a love song' secretly code for 'I'm not ever gonna blog here again?'" Glad to know that the answer is no :)

I just blogged about that new lotion that claims to make skin feel like yogurt, so clearly, nothing life-changing needs to happen before one posts...

:)

Tipp said...

Wohhoooo! Glad you are back though secretly I was wishing you were living in Ireland so we could all come and crash on your coach.

Life is same old same old.

Can't wait to read more!
