Around

If you've noticed I haven't really been around these parts lately. It's not that I don't want to, I can't. This blog and I aren't getting along right now. There was a lot of you never make time for me .. and you're clingy - you want all my spare time for yourself...

This is by no means an apology, but blog and I, we've got some issues to work out. We can't be together all the time now and someone isn't taking it well.

If there's one thing I've learned as an adult, it's that free time is insanely valuable. As kids we spend all our time playing. Sure, we get called in for dinner and a shower but we know that we can always be back at the playground tomorrow. It's not like that anymore.

Our plates become so full of tasks and to-do's that we lose sight of the playground. We forget how important it is to just play. To not have to worry about this bill, or that assignment, or this deadline....

There are so many things going on right now for me... parties, deaths, financial irritations... and really, its all just a routine part of adult life.

The point is, you have to remember to take time out for the playground. So whether this blog likes it or not,  I'm taking that time.

If you need me, you know where I'll be...

I totally agree. I've been at odds with my blog this summer too- I just want to get out there and enjoy life!

I have to ask where the playground is in your picture. It looks eerily like one from where I grew up.

Completely agree. I disappeared off my blog until I had the time to come back to it. I had to get everything in order (kind of) before I enjoy again. I'm off to go find a swing set at a playground!

That's how I'm feeling about August too. I can't do the 5 days a week anymore. I need to get the rest of my shit in order first. I'll post when I can but this month, the blog is not top priority.
