While you were doing that, I was doing this.

While you were doing that, I was doing this.

See! I still exist.  After nearly 3 weeks (or has it been 3 weeks?) off the grid, I am finally trying to jump back into the world that exists in this computer.  In fact, I am guessing that I will finally get in the groove just in time to head off to BlogHer in San Francisco next week.   So what kept me offline for so long?  Well, I was chillin at the beach. Thinking I would have no trouble getting hooked up and online, I never mentioned that I would be leaving. Turns out, getting on and being able to work and chat and check email and such was not the easy time I thought it would be.  Yet being offline for so long was just what I needed.  I know I owe way too many people way too many responses, email, posts etc.  Now that I am home, hooked up and able to connect with the outside world, I will do my best to catch up. Really. (Did you notice the “do my best” part?  Yeah, still out of my groove.)

But I am sure you understand can I understand why.

While you were getting ready for work, I was doing this:

And for most of the day when I would normally be home doing chores or trying to keep the kids busy, I was hanging out here:

And then as the late afternoon hit, I did a little bit of this:

And as the day drew to a close, I sat in amazement watching this:

Is it any wonder why it is tough to get back into the groove?

Next up: Taking on the jellies, BlogHer stuff and a way too late post about a book I was totally supposed to post about ages ago.  For now, a nap.  This blogging stuff is tough to get back into.  I need my beach back.
