Musings of a Chicago-Born New Yorker

And I’m Back

You know how it is when you get on a roll with your blogging. You blog every day and pat yourself on the back. You begin writing drafts of posts in advance because you’ve got it like that.

Then one day you realize you never published you draft. Then you go out of town for a weekend. On Monday, you’re too tired to post again. Then you realize you never edited your draft, so it’s really more trouble than it’s worth and you could just do it tomorrow.

Then you get a long weekend off from work and admit that last thing you want to do is spend non-working hours tethered to a computer/cell phone putting out another post.

Then you look up and six weeks have passed. You’ve neither blogged nor read any of the blogs you regularly do. You wonder if Single Lesbian Brooklynite has managed to rid herself of extra emotional women who aren’t even remotely ready for a relationship. You wonder how Silver Neurotic’s wedding plans are going. You wonder if Kat Richter’s boyfriend situation is still going strong.

But still, you’re uninspired. It will take so much time to catch up. And really, what excuse do you have to explain where you’ve been? Florida, back to St. Louis, making your friend’s life celebrations super awesome sounds great and all, but who really cares?

Then you remember the majority of your blog reads like a journal so you should suck it up, apologize to the 5 1/2 people who read your blog and get back on the horse.

To preview, I’ll first post all those drafts (there’s only like 3) I started and never published. Then, I’ll move onto the cruise we went to (crossing Bahamas off our country list!). Next, I’ll talk about Project UnPack which finally extended to our living room. Lastly, I’ll discuss how amazing it’s been helping my friends celebrate birthdays, graduations, etc.

I definitely haven’t even missed blogging, but I’m glad to be back!

    Well, I’m happy to see you again. I was going to write you an email, to see how everything was going…but realized I didn’t have your email on hand. LOL

    And to get you up to date…moving two weeks from today so I’ve been trying to pack and all that fun stuff. Still working on invitations (or rather, insisted fiance work on invitations). Had my dress fitting and ordered my wedding cake! Obviously…the most fun aspect of wedding planning.

    • Oh wow, you’ve had a lot going on. Cake tasting is the best!
