Remember me? It's been a month (ONE MONTH!) since my last post, and although I am ridiculously out of touch with many of you and feeling rusty in the ol' blogging arena, it was a much needed, impromptu break. Not gonna lie, as much as I relished this partial disconnect from social media, I have missed this creative outlet of mine and I am encouraged by those of you who have emailed me to check in. Thank you for thinking of me!
So. Where was I? Oh, yes. Florida!
My trip to Florida last month was quick and painless but I did not emerge from those brutal flights unscathed. My journey home involved three flights and measured almost twenty hours from start to finish; I had never been more happy to arrive home on Maui, shower, and crawl into bed to catch up on sleep that did not happen in almost 48 hours. I came home on a Saturday night and by Monday morning, I had chills, aches and a fever. Awesome.
What followed was two weeks of pure torture for us. I say us, because not only did I feel like total and complete pond scum, but my Rock Star husband doted on me and and foot, picked up the slack (and then some) around the house AND was banished to another room for two weeks so that I could rest and recover in our Queen sized bed alone. So, yeah. Two weeks of the flu and a wretched case of laryngitis later, one can only imagine that I wasn't really in a blogging sort of mood. And instead of lambasting myself for failed attempts at a structured blogging schedule, I just let it go and focused on getting well.
Which brings me here, on a Monday evening, exactly one month later. I'm healthy, no longer sleep deprived and I've finally found my work (and life) rhythm again. I'm slowly easing into the pool of creativity that has gathered at my feet over the past few weeks and I'm looking forward to sharing that with all of you!
I'll be back tomorrow with some updates...for now, I'm shutting down for the night to make room for the garbage that is reality TV. There is so much about this particular Monday night show that drives me insane, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't totally entertained by it.
'Fess up. Who else is watching The Bachelor? ;)
