Liar, Liar!

It's me again. Back for about 5 minutes. I'm pitiful, I know. I keep telling you I'm back and... I'm not. I keep telling you that I'll get around to reading everyone's blogs... and I don't. You're all thinking, 'Liar, liar, pants on fire!' Aren't you? It's OK, you can say it. I won't be offended. I suck.

Life has just sort of taken over right now. Most of it's good... some of it's not so good (but I'm trying really hard to keep those bits at bay). Work is up and down (wish it was more up) but I've got some new projects in the works (more about them when they come a little closer to fruition). The Booby Walk is this weekend (gulp) and I'm readying my butt (and heel) for 60 miles. Wish me luck! GoGirlGo! starts tomorrow, with (so far) about 25 5th-grade girls participating. I'm excited about that and (kind of) looking forward to training for our 5K in 12 weeks. I'm still in the pool every week with the little ones, getting splashed and kicked (and hugged) and loving every minute of it. I've started going to a weekly divorce care group with my neighbor. Though I don't know that I'll get much from it, as I'm pretty far out from my split (5 years), I think one or two people in the group might be benefiting from my experience, and helping people always gives me the warm fuzzies, so I'll keep going. I'm still doing Weight Watchers faithfully each week. I'm absolutely loving it, have been enormously successful (no pun intended)so far, and I've even made a couple of great, funny new friends there as well. And I've got a big old (boring) book to finish for my man-book club and a list of events happening with the social networking club.

I'm a little tired, truth be told, and after writing all that out, I kind of understand why. I hope you'll understand why I've been scarce lately... and I hope you'll cut me some slack. I will be back... I promise. Really and truly. No lying.

And now I have to run out the door to pick up Herself. Later, 'gators! Love you, miss you, see you soon! XO

Hey, if I was working though a man-book I would be out of the picture forever...

...not that I know what a man-book is...

...you reading about cars?

We miss you, but totally understand Diane. (:

Ladybird World Mother said...

Totally worn out reading your post, let alone living your life! Well done for finding time to write ANYTHING. Good luck with all those endeavours. Try and tell us little snippettes now and then. xx

You've been a busy little beaver! I'm tired just hearing about all the things you're involved with this fall.

Good luck on the booby walk!

Rachel Cotterill said...

Sounds like you have absolutely loads to write about - if you ever sat still for two minutes ;) Don't worry, I think we can all identify.

If you do have a minute for skimming the blogosphere, I can offer you something thoroughly undemanding: pictures of dogs flying through the air. Yup, I've been terribly intellectual lately....

We Blog.
Yes, it really seems like that on occasion, BUT
it isn't right, gal.
It's Web Log, and, while it's always nice when folks stop by to say "hi!" or critique or applaud your work, it isn't actually mandatory.
Heck, I haven't made enough from my art to buy paints, and so have been double scrambling for handiman's work (which I found! YAY!) and have been up against the wall with that.

And, I actually met up with one of my blogging buddies, and we're hot to meet up again, but, dang! Life just keeps us tied down to doing what we have to do, eh?

Keeping your head up and happy is more important to all of your friends (me too!) than tracking down a few minutes to wander over.
Be happy with your family, gal!
And, remember Will Roger's line, because it IS true...
We only have a short time to spend here. So get ALL the good laughs you can!

boneman said...

....wait...
a man-book?!
what the heck is that?

no...no.
maybe I don't need to know that.
I'll just move along now...

You got a lot on your plate. Understandable.

Don't you worry, my friend, we are not going anywhere. . .and I mean ANY where!!!

blognut said...

Yeah, whatever. All these other people are telling you it's all right for you to be absent, and I'm NOT going to do it. I'm NOT! I miss you. And I hate it when you're hiding. And I'm stomping my foot and throwing a tantrum right this very minute.

So there.

And yeah, I understand. I just felt like being a big baby blognut for a minute. It's all good.

HLiza said...

Oh you must be so fit and slim now with all those activities..! I wish I have that craziness in my life at the moment..when all seems to stand still..

Jean said...

Good luck on the boobie run!
With all other things on your plate, it just might be a break ;-)

Jenners said...

I can't believe the booby walk is here! That seemed so far away when you first started writing about it but now it is here! You'll do great!

And I defintely see why you might be A LOT TIRED and absent from blogging world. But it all sounds pretty good.

Debbie said...

A Woman Of No Importance said...

Slack truly being cut, darling - No wonder you're exhausted with all that's going on - That's probably why you're feeling crapola prior to your mammoth charity run too...

Love you, lots of luck x

She said...

I've been slacking off the blog, too. Been so busy, and it's hard to keep up, so I GET IT!

Sending hugs and loads of love but NO kisses on the cheek for you, missy!
