I know, I know…. you’re wondering why I dropped off the face of the blogosphere??!!
I have hit a couple of weeks where too many of my personal obligations had a head-on collision with too many of my work obligations. And the result, unfortunately, has been no time to blog.
I have yet to figure out how to commute 1 1/2 hours to work in the morning, work for about 9 hours, commute 1 1/2 hours home, do laundry, go to the dry cleaner, buy toothpaste, wash dishes, shovel 2 inches of ice off my steps (Every-Damn-Day), undecorate Christmas, maintain friendships (insert deep breath here) return Christmas presents, feed the dog, cook dinner, pay bills and so on, and so on, and so on. Forget about fitting in any sleeping & unwinding… I’ll have to wait until Spring for that!
The good news is, I have off from work tomorrow and I plan to write a true blog post. The bad news is, I truly think that this pace may continue for the next month or so. I’m in the midst of budget planning at work for next fiscal year in addition to quarterly business reviews from the end of 2010. This my friends means 8-9 hour meetings at work to prep for and discuss more meetings at work. All culiminating in even more work meetings that will take place in FL. Which also means, more work travel. Sounds like fun… right?! Sure, almost as fun as having a bucket of ice water tossed over my head or maybe falling off a treadmill.
Either way.. I just wanted you to know that it’s not just my blog that’s suffering.. it’s my house too. At this very moment, hubby’s Christmas presents are still on the floor in the living room, there are items sitting on the stairs awaiting their jouney upwards and… perhaps the worst of all.
This is what the hallway looks like as I ascend my stairs.
Yes, those are Christmas bins and other assorted items that need to make their way to the attic. They’ve been sitting in that spot for a little over a week.
Here’s a better look at just how sad this is..
That’s something like 7 bins, 5 boxes, bags and other loose items that have been cluttering my hallway because I’m too busy to even nag hubby to help me stowe away Christmas until next year.
I’m even debating with myself which I’ll be able to tackle first… these bins or blogging. And….. since the bins require hubby’s help, I have a sinking feeling that the blog may win!
Anyhow… wish me luck and forgive me for disappearing for a while!
