I'm alive.

I feel awful for not having blogged in so long, and am going to make a concerted effort to find time to do so regularly again.  The biggest thing, I think, is that I simply don't have time to do it in the mornings so I'll need to rearrange my brain patterns, and start doing it in the afternoon or evening.

Yes, I'm still buried with work, insanely behind and treading water.  It's one of those double-edged swords.  I'm thrilled to be this busy, on the one hand, but would sure love ten minutes to take a breath.

I did manage to get my garden in (more detailed post later) because the weather's been gorgeous here.  But other than that it's all work, all the time.  My house is frighteningly unclean (though I finally broke down and mopped yesterday afternoon because, ugh).

I haven't blog-hopped, I haven't spent much time on Facebook (though I'm there at least a little bit daily -- I need a small fix of my friends!).  I MISS you guys.

I think summer will help.  I lose nearly three hours a day in drive time for the kidlet taking her to and from school.  Next year, assuming she's accepted to the new school (we had our final interview last week and the board is meeting to review applications soon -- we were told there were, for the first time, more applicants than there were spots to fill, but that DD's "resume" is pretty impressive, and we shouldn't worry about her chances too much) it's only a 12 minute drive (in non-snow weather) AND I won't have to wait in a line to pick her up (which takes me almost 30 mins every afternoon).

We'll see.  Honestly, I'm not entirely certain what the answer is.  I do know I'm losing my mind just a little bit.

She's ALIVE!!!

Glad to see you back. 3 hours is an awfully long commute.

I've hit my limit on how many things I can take on. When something new enters my life, I have to decide whether I really need to do it, and then I have to delete something else from my workload. There's just no other way.

I used to feel guilty until one day I asked myself what would happen if I were dead. Who would do this stuff? The answer was sobering and I stopped worrying about not keeping up after that.

Wow, that's one heck of a commute for DD's school! I hope she is accepted into the new school, not just for her sake, but yours as well.
Hugs on the busy-ness!

I was just thinking of you and sent you an email and then I come here and you're here. Yay! I missed you.

I've been wondering what happened to you. I miss reading your blog, although I've been busy too and haven't been around much lately either.
