Where've you been, Girl??

I know.  I know.  It’s been a minute.  No.  Maybe not a minute.  More like an hour.  Or two.  Or maybe more.  I don’t know, but I’m here now.  I took a sabbatical from blogging for a while.  So many things have been going on with me that I just didn’t have it in me to post a little something.

Work has been the main reason that I took off.  I travel a lot with my job.  In May, for example, I was home for only 1.5 weeks out of the 4.5 weeks.  Basically, I spent 75% of the month on the road.  While I do love travelling and getting a chance to see places that I may not normally see on my own dime, I find it to be quite taxing.  It is definitely time consuming with the prep work, work during the trip and then the follow up work afterwards.  It is also taxing to the body.  Lugging suitcases and briefcases.  Travelling through time zones.  Jet lag and so on.  It’s tiring!!  I get home and want to fall out!  My travel schedule has since slowed down for the next couple months, so I have a little bit more time and energy.

The other thing is that I have a boyfriend now.  With my travel schedule, I really have to work harder to fit in quality time with him.  The relationship isn’t really new, (7 months), but it still feels new since I haven’t been around a lot.  We’re still settling into our “routine”, whatever it may be.  I still want to be all up in his face and he wants to read and play Angry Birds.  God, that game is SOOO addictive and killing my QT!  lol  I digress.  I think that during my travel time off, we can find what works for us and get more comfortable with being around each other without having to account for every second together.  Well, that’s what I hope.  We shall see.

The bottomline is that I’m back…for now.  Shout out to my Voice of Reason for your advice yesterday about the blog.  I’ve missed it and I’ve miss my readers too.  See you soon with the next post!


  1. I am SUPER GLAD that you are BACK YAY!  Life happens, but writing, you can always pick back up like catching up with an old friend from elementary school.  It misses you but still loves you!

  2. Aww! Thank you! This makes me feel really good about being back. I
    thought no one had missed me. lol You're so right and I look forward to
    your return as well!
