It's Been Awhile
Do you ever feel like everything is crazy and that you have no time for pretty much anything but the basic functions such as eating, sleeping, working, etc.? I sure hope so, because if I am the only one, that would suck, as well as make me feel pretty darn pathetic.
It only has been about a three months since my last post, but whose counting, right? Go ahead and call off the search parties... I'm back. I unsuccessfully attempted NaBloPoMo, have celebrated Thanksgiving, done Christmas shopping, baked many cupcakes, cookies, and desserts, as well as have celebrated Christmas with family since anyone has last heard from me. I've also changed jobs, and done many loads of laundry, rang in the New Year, and probably numerous other things that would generate various degrees of interest.
So what exactly has been preventing me from posting these last few months? Not exactly any one thing in particular. It more has been a zillion little things that just form a unsurmountable obstacle when it comes to my time and my energy.
The holidays have come and gone. While I absolutely love the whole holiday season, I am thrilled it has finally passed us by. I really enjoy being with family, and just the whole spirit of the season, but the amount of stress I create for myself is not something I will miss.
A little less than a month ago, I changed jobs at work. While I am thrilled to be doing something different (I loved my old job, but sometimes you just gotta mix it up), it has been a rollercoaster of busy. The transition from my old job to my new job has been a stressful one. I think the ride will finally be over, as they have finally gotten a replacement in my old position and so I will not be juggling new and old responsibilities anymore.
Now that things seem to be settling down a little bit, I am hoping I can focus more on things that I want to focus on. Some of these things include my new job, some projects I have around the house, my blogging, and of course spending time with friends and family.
Some things I am looking forward to this year include my kid's birthdays (which although are not for another two months, I already feel like there is some pressure - self induced, of course - to plan some sort of party or something), the new job - and the opportunities it will bring, my baby brother's wedding, and the Revenge of the Leftovers.**
(**officially, I believe that the name of the movie is going to be Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, or something along those lines, as well as the release date has been changed to 09/27/13**)
Anyways, this post really has no specific point, other than pointing out that obviously I'm a slacker who hasn't written anything in a few months. As well as to be an opportunity to write about my excitement over a children's movie that comes out in 217 days. (Only 5 days until the first trailer **jazz hands**)
I cannot wait.
