A Moment...

...to breathe. Just a moment. Well, an afternoon, that is. I have been rebuked countless times since moving to Annapolis for my laxity in blogging. At first I had no excuse other than laziness and jetlag for being so remiss, but I have, at long last come up with three good excuses which I will lay out in High School essay-like form.

First,
Second,
Finally,
In conclusion, I am now working three jobs (read approx. 6 1/2 days per week), one which occasionally requires my presence at 5:15 am, another which occasionally requires my presence until as late as 11:00 pm, and I am exhausted.

Or, as a more true explanation, I now work as a hostess at Phillips Seafood Restaurant, a barista-in-training at Starbucks, and a nanny for Charlie (who is just under two months old). As you can, I am sure, tell from the fact that I have posted twice today, I have the afternoon off, and am desperately trying to catch up with my life. So I'm off (like a dirty shirt) to get everything else done. Right now. Effortlessly.

You're excused. But only because you made me laugh out loud in the middle of Dawson's. Where Lauren works, btw, and Jim and Amy were visiting on Friday.

I'm glad I can amuse you, and jealous that you see not only Lauren but also Jim and Amy far more often than I.
Oh, and I was glad to see that you're blogging again too. I like what you're writing both for yourself and for the Weekly.
Say hi to the people I know (and like) there from me.

Welcome back. I had almost given up checking but thought I would take a chance this morning and...there you are! Good to see/read you again.
And who the heck are Lauren, Jim and Amy?

Did Jim and Amy move to Boise?

Whew! If I was doing that much, I wouldn't be blogging!
