Drowning

Ugh.  

Just came up for air (beneath the dozens of cardboard boxes) long enough to say, 

"It's not you, it's me."

My Google Reader is at 123 today.  I'm getting panic attacks for neglecting such fine authors, but for now ... I have to pull away and focus on packing, moving, oh and ... paying attention to my kids.  

I think I'll have to break up with Twitter and Cr8Buzz too because I just can't keep up.  And I'm a girl who likes to put her ALL into everything.  So if I can't be the best, I quit.  (Great teachable moment here, if only I had time to figure it out...)

While I'm on sabbatical (read: getting my world screwed on straight) please read a real-life friend of mine who has decided to blog, again, for the fifth time.  Please pop over and give her a welcome.  I promise you some adorable twins on her site.  

In between gulps of packaging tape, packing paper, and shoving shampoo, wine glasses, and dump trucks all into one box, I'll check in.  Until then ... I'll miss ya'll.

I'd offer to help you if I wasn't overwhelmed with impending graduation festivities and visiting in-laws. We'll miss you--hope the move goes smoothly.

I'll go check out the twins, but I've already committed to the idea that you have the most beautiful twins going!

Kathryn said...

Ugh. It all sounds completely exhausting and overwhelming. Remind me to NEVER even attempt it. ;)

And to think you owe it all to the Vagisil!

Melanie said...

See you soon (literally!). And Twittering is overrated.

Cheri said...

Mine's at 95. I am in the same boat, but with no boxes. Take care.

Delete your google reader.... period. Get ride of them. Turn it off, no one cares..... I know I haven't posted any thing of great worth myself.

And.... real life friend.... eh hem.... I'm real life. (wink)

We love you. Hang in there.

Boy/girl twins! Another "sister." Thanks for coming to my blog. I'm sorry I've found yours only as your taking a break. But as a mom of twins who moved 8 times in 10 years, including a move abroad, I feel you sister. It gets better. And your twins are ADORABLE!!!! Good luck

Sincerely Anna said...

Good luck with the move and hope all goes well!

Good luck with all the packing! Miss you and your wonderful posts and pics of your precious children:) Looking forward to an update....when you have time, of course!

I hope you are leaving a bottle or two of wine out to help with the late night packing. ;)

I'm with everyone else. Delete the reader. We'll all be happy to see you when you return.

Hang in there Jamie!!

CRigg said...

also, thanks for the support and the blog "shout out"... you're the best. Again, you've inspired me to slow down, write, and reflect again. You have some awesome posts!

Karen said...

You've got a great excuse to neglect blogging. Get moved and settled in - we'll still be here when you're back in the swing of things.

Amber M. said...

Hang in there, lady! You will soon be all settled into your gorgeous new home.

We'll still be here when you're done.

Angela said...

Packing and Pain both start with the same letter.
Makes me not want to P.

Denise said...

yuck - moving. I feel you pain. I'm still moving in a year later. I am sure you will be much more efficient than I have been! :o)

Stephanie said...

We'll miss you! Packing up is never any fun. I may be there soon too...keep your fingers crossed!

Can't wait for your return!

Courtney said...

I will miss you! Can't wait to hear about the new home. I hate packing and unpacking, I do not envy you...

Sue said...

Just moved across town this weekend for the summer months. (We rent out one house to wealthy tourists). Anyway, moving blows!
But you will be happy in your new home and we will still be here when you get a second (or hour).
Good Luck!
