I think my blog should file for neglect...

**Be warned...delirious brain dump ahead...**

Photobucket
our first snow - 2.11.12
so...i guess you can say its been ages since I last posted anything and as much as I wish I had been off gallivanting in the Caribbean or doing something for the betterment of society...I've really just been at work.   Over the last month or so I've worked between 60 and 90 hour weeks, spent 10 days straight away from my family in the western part of Virginia, lost my cool a few times (cue the mad dash to the bathroom to let the tears fall in the privacy of a stall), started Addie in full time pre-school, been in a car accident (everyone was fine, but the car...not so much), and spent an insane amount of money at Starbucks (its my safe haven).  Crazy, right?!...I guess, but its my life during this time of year..and I'm not complaining because god knows I'm lucky to have everything I have.  It's funny to think back a year ago when I was talking to my favorite beach bum about starting a blog (which was born in none other than a Starbucks) and trying to figure out what I would call said blog.  And so...workaholic momma was born...which at times this summer when 40 hours was the norm seemed a bit silly but right now its right.  I feel like I've missed out on so much...of my own life, my friend's lives (blog and non-blog), and my time with my family.  And some days...I just feel like a hamster in cage running on the wheel as hard as I can but never going a.n.y.w.h.e.r.e.  So....I have no idea when I'll be back to a normal blogging schedule but I really really appreciate all of the sweet emails, tweets, and phone calls...y'all really don't know how much all of that means to me!!!!  I miss this blog world and all of the great and wonderful people I've met because of it...lots of love to you all and a very very happy valentines day!!

I was wondering where you went to! Remember to breathe and enjoy life with your little family. They are what matter most. Even if it is coming home after a long day and scooping up the sleeping baby to get some snuggles. It is just a season of life and you will triumph! Hugs to you!

Welcome back! The blogging world has missed you, but sometimes 'other' things have to take priority. Hopefully things at work will slow down for you soon!

I missed your appearance on Saturday (I was running late), but I hope to see you soon...even if it is for nothing more than some Starbucks. ;)

I was just thinking to myself the other day I hadn't seen you around lately!

Hope the craziness dies down soon! We'll all still be here when you come back!

Awww - you have been missed! I always get worried when blogs I like go quiet - glad to hear it's just the busyness of life.
