Unplugged

 So, I don’t know if many noticed but I’ve been almost MIA this last week.  Why, you ask?  Well, because I started this great activity where people give you money if you show up at a certain time and do what they ask.  Yes.  A job.

I’m back to work teaching english to primary school french children.  Between my new schedule, my kids schedules, doctors appointments, ballet and gym classes and trying, desperately, to get through critique material and prepare my own MS for submission-  the blogging is taking an offical backseat.  I’m sorry blogger, you cute little thing you.  I love stroking your pink and white checkered backdrop and gushing over all the comments that light up my day.  But alas, I must unplug until Wednesday.   And then I’ll be unplugged from then until NEXT Wednsday.

I’m leaving (on a jet plane)—really, who can resist?)  Friday –and going HOME (well, my old home- that is CONNECTICUT!) for FOUR WHOLE DAYS!!!  ALL BY MYSELF!!!  No kids.  No husband (though I love them dearly.)  I’m heading home for my cousin’s wedding (I’m a bridesmaid- always wanted to be one.  I know that’s lame but it’s true.)  Words can’t express how excited I am.  I will take pictures- even though I’m not sure how excited ya’ll will get over the inside of CT Walmarts and shopping centers.

I’ll miss my blogging pals!

We'll miss you. But just stay safe, and we'll be happy.

Have a great time at the wedding. May the new job provide the necessary funds with as little bumps in the road as possible. Roland

You'll definitely be missed, Katie.

Wow, think of all the reading time you'll have on the plane. And think of all the books you'll be able to buy once you hit the States. :)

Have fun at the wedding and enjoy your time away :)

oh, sure. string us along, make us into your supportive, adoring fanbase and then just leave us behind as soon as something better comes along. something shinier, something newer. let me guess, it doesn't come home tired after a long day at work, right? it never has to concern itself with things like laundry and screaming kids right? and it's younger, of course it's younger.

Hrumph.

well, i just hope the two of you are happy.

and when it doesn't work out, don't come crawling back to us because we'll have moved on.

(just make sure you travel safely, okay?)

You may very likely be the first woman I've ever met who is excited about being a bride's maid. Enjoy you're trip!!

Congrats on the job, but it does make things tough. Learned that lesson this past summer myself. You'll make do, I'm sure.

Have fun!! I love being a bridesmaid!!! But unfortunately for me, everyone who would have asked me is already married. So unless my sister in law's BF decided to get off his behind and marry the girl, my bridesmaid days are over :(

Have fun!

Melody said...

That's so NOT lame to want to be a bridesmaid!

Or, if it is, then I'm totally lame with you. :)

WindyA said...

Have fun! And sometimes, a break is a good thing.

P.S. It's nice to know I'm not alone in my desire to be a bridesmaid. Have never actually been one though ...

LTM said...

Sounds like a fantastic job! How fun :) Good luck with everything!

And have a great trip home - such a nice little break - every one needs some time to themselves. We'll miss you!

Candyland said...

A...job? *GASP*
But I want all your attention every second of every day. The only reasonable suggestion I have is for you to quit the job.

Talli Roland said...

You're gonna be a busy gal! :) Have a great time at the wedding and take a well deserved break! Don't forget us!

Laura Marcella said...

I'm a bridesmaid in a wedding this weekend, too! Have fun, Katie, and enjoy your break!!!

I've never been a bridesmaid although I would love to be one. There's hope yet though! Have a blast!

Enjoy your trip!
Hope to see a post tomorrow...?
Otherwise, take some time off!!!

Colene Murphy said...

Have a good trip! We will miss you but life is a good reason to be gone from the internet I think.

Shannon said...

Hi Katie,

I have noticed you haven't been around much, but it's definitely for good reason. Congratulations on the new job and for finally being a bridesmaid.

Have a great time in CT!

Unplugging is good sometimes!

Melissa said...

We'll miss you! But I understand unplugging. I was sick last week so was MIA and come November I'm going to be WAY too busy.

Congratulations on getting a bridesmaid. I totally understand the dream. Can't wait for pictures!

Carolyn Abiad said...

Have fun in CT! Sigh. Haven't been back there in 3 years myself. I sooo miss the seafood (and the friends :D)
