Yes, I am alive!

I've gotten juuuuuust a few emails and messages over the last couple days about my lack of posting on here. Sorry bout that folks! Things have been a bit busy and I have also been enjoying a little time off from work. Much needed time off from work or I was really going to have a meltdown.

I had to head up to PA earlier than I had planned to drive up for Thanksgiving. Sadly, my Godmother (who I had mentioned in this previous post) passed away and her funeral was last Monday. While it was a sad occasion, the service was filled with so much joy and music. I want to write about it because it really was a touching day and a great tribute to the wonderful person she was, I just haven't had it in me to write it out yet.

I enjoyed Thanksgiving up in PA and even a Saturday evening in NJ with one of my best friends from college...but it was a good feeling to come back to VA and my apartment. And then there have also been more dates with this guy (no, not Fist Bump, the guy at the end of the posting)

Just as I was getting used to feeling like a human being that isn't inundated with work emails and wincing at the red light blinking on my blackberry, I had to come BACK to work today and I have literally felt the waves of stress crash down over me all again. I am even taking this small mental break now to write this because I have no idea what time I am going to leave my office tonight.

So please bear with me as I struggle to find some semblance of "back to normal" and can get back in a good routine of posting again.

I hope everyone out there had a wonderful Thanksgiving (and came back to a happier office than I seem to have returned to!)


  1. I turn my phone off from time to time just to have one less thing to look at.

  2. Oh sugar, I am so sorry to read about your grandmother. But so happy it was a celebration of her life in the end!

  3. I am sorry to hear about your godmother.

  4. Just wanted to say I love your "About Me" description, so cute :)

  5. So sorry to hear about your godmother.

    And, hope things settle down for you soon!! Stress and being overly busy are never good things!
