It started out as taking a few days off for lack of inspiration. School was winding down, summer was drawing nigh, and I had so much to accomplish. I put the blog on the back burner to finish getting final grades in, attend meetings, and wrap up end-of-the-year things.
Then the first week of summer rolled around. And it felt so nice to not have a schedule. I'm sure I am not alone in saying that I am way more productive when I am busy, because I have a sched. and stick to it! Needless to say, I got lazy, I started eating ice cream for dinner, and I avoided the blog some more.
Next, you see, we got a puppy. And suddenly my days were devoted to catering to Pablo's every whim. (Pablo is a yellow lab, btw). Obviously, no time to blog when puppy wants to help you type, then chew your power cord, then lick your computer screen, then have an accident on the carpet.
|Hi, I'm Pablo. Aren't I cute?|
Before you know it, I was in Las Vegas, NV. Not only was I super busy basking in the sun, walking the strip, and enjoying the nightlife, but I also didn't want to pay $12 per day for internet! Say what?!?! Welcome to 2011, Stratosphere Hotel. Everyone has free wifi! Get with the program! Needless to say, the blog was put on hold for another week.
When the weekend rolled around, it was Wedding City, baby! Two of my dear friends got married in the same city this past Friday and Saturday! Celebrate, recover, celebrate, recover. I barely had time to open my computer! How could you expect me to write about anything?

There is so much to catch up on! A few bucket list items to check off! Some life lessons learned. This will all be coming to you in the next few days...along with plenty of pictures and stories.
Ah. That felt good. You know how you take a break from working out one day. Which leads to an entire weekend of slacking. Then suddenly you can't imagine even putting on a pair of tennis shoes. And before you know it your muscles have atrophied and you are just a puddle of skin and bones and fat? That's what it felt like to stop blogging. I didn't even know where to start. Didn't know how to jump back in. Finally, I just had to plug my nose, close my eyes, and cannon-ball into the deep end. Refreshing.
Now it's time to see how many unread items are on my Google Reader...yikes.
