Unattached and Loving It!

Unattached and Loving It!

I’ll be very honest. I have nothing to hide. I’m not hiding and have not been kidnapped. I haven’t been on WordPress lately – not since my last post on July 3rd. That’s not a typo. July 3rd! OMG! Thirteen whole days! I haven’t even kept up with the blogs I follow if anyone even noticed. Facebook has even been sadly neglected. Sorry folks. 😦  Social media actually took a back seat this time!

We went out of town for the Fourth of July holiday and I left all my charging cords and laptop at home – not on purpose, but even so…Read about that nightmare here. Of course I had a secret stashed phone charging cord and after hijacking a USB plugin from my sister I was back in business. There is just so much you can do on a phone though and reading all that small print makes me dizzy.

I got used to it. Used to the freedom of not being attached, not having to check in, not checking stats, and not having to write. No pressure, no worries, and no crossed eyes!

Well, I’ve used that as an excuse long enough. I’m back home, my charging cords all here dangling from their electrical sockets, and my laptop is booted up. But…H starts his percussion camp in four days and then band camp after that. Summer will be gone for us. Gone will be the days of  staying up late to watch ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ on Netflix. (We are on season six, episode eleven. Will this ever end?) and sleeping a little late in the mornings. I think I need these last days of summer vacation with no obstacles in my way. My head will be clear and there will be no interruptions. I will be able to catch up on back blog posts, write some posts of my own, and finish the last few chapters of ‘What Line’.

No one may notice, though I hope they will. What’s four more days? What would you do?

  1. You won’t believe this, but I woke up thinking of you, and there you were LIKING all over the place. I’ve been behind on my reading too…I knew you were away, and I totally love the idea of Greta Garboing it for two weeks. I hope the time away, cyberly and otherwise, has restored and rejuvenated you. Welcome back 🙂

    • Thanks Susannah! I started last night by reading your posts I have missed and then got drawn into watching 4 more episodes of Grey’s Anatomy with H! We may never finish this series so we can continue watching in real time! I marked my place and will continue reading your posts sometime today so I can soon read YOU in real time!

      • Yes I am! It’s been hard to get back into a good rhythm. H back at work and Andrew off to Troy again. H just thinks I need to spend weekends running around doing stuff with him. Could be worse. He could not want me around! 🙂 thanks for asking. BTW I downloaded Model Behavior today. Now if I can only figure out how to turn the page on the app on my iPhone I’ll be in business! Lol!

  3. I think it is wonderful that you took time out to enjoy your life, not saying that blogging is not fun but isn’t everything. I think sometimes we get so tied up in our technology that we forget life is supposed to be about connecting to people. 🙂
