Are you there, blog? It's me, Anna.

Dear Preciously Patient Blog,

Well, as you can imagine by my 3 week break from blogging, life has been rather overwhelming. I've got so much to say, so much to catch up on, so many raises my blood pressure just typing it this sentence.

Here are a few reasons why I've been away:

1. Work (yes, this is my first summer EVER to not have a "summer break").
2. Playdates (though I don't have a summer break, all my teacher mommy friends do and I'm trying to keep up with my playdates while I can with them on my days off...if you know me, you know I can't say NO).
3. Social life (see previous number - I can't say NO, nor do I want to, honestly. My friends are so special to me and are pretty much priority number one when it comes to maintaining my sanity so I just have to make time for them even when there isn't any time)
4. Computer meltdown (our computer is over-worked, too, apparently because it developed a nasty virus while away in Hilton Head with us - when I intended on catch up on posts! - and demanded an immediate doctor's visit upon return)
5. Life (need I say more?)

I'm not taking a break on purpose, I fully intend on keeping up the blog because its so cathartic for me. Organizing my thoughts, sharing Bridget news, just makes me feel better and I can tell by my current stress level that its been missing. Our computer is all well and good thanks to my office's tech angels, so let's do this!

Just now I tried my best to go through my dashboard and look at all your new posts, too, bloggy friends. Unfortunately, it just stressed me out when I'd skimmed through about 20 new posts and realized I'd only gotten through 2 days worth. Sadly, this just means I'm going to have to start fresh from here and become a loyal follower of each of you again starting now. I miss reading about your adventures and seeing your tips, news, opinions and thoughts. That's another reason I love blogging and I believe it makes me a fuller soul - YOU! How's that for a hug today?

All in all, I hope to return soon with posts about books I've read recently, our Hilton Head trip (ahhhhhh-mazing!), summer adventures, stress about my journey into law school that's nigh upon me, yada yada yada. I need this outlet in my life, but my "me" time continues to shrink into the abyss. Anyone for adding more hours to the day? Or perhaps a personal assistant? Know of anyone who a) will be at my beck and call without pay, and b) will also promise to be invisible on a whim so as to avoid annoying me at all cost? I don't think that's too much to ask, do you?

I know things will fall into the place their designed to be at the moment they're supposed to. That's just how is always works because there's a plan for all of us. Sometimes it's harder to see it, but we have to trust that it's truckin' just as we all are (ps I'm a grammar freak and seeing all these phrases end in prepositions is killing me but I'm just too tired and busy to rework them...arg!).

Let's all raise a glass to living each day to its fullest, grabbing on to life as hard as we can and really making the most of each moment we're blessed to have. That's what I'm doing today. Are you?

Thanks for giving me my time, blog. I look forward to overloading you with pics of my blessings as soon as I can.

Hugs and kisses,

Anna :)
