I've been absentee lately, I know. I have so much to post about, but no time at all! I have barely touched a computer in days. I really miss you all. I have a couple posts in the works and about 6 billion others stewing in my head. I promise one of these days I'll find the time to make bloggy amends.
But for now, there is just too much else I need to devote my attention to. I'm really digging in at work and starting a whole bunch of new initiatives and projects to enhance our office's ability to render legal support to the Marines. I have big plans and I really need to devote my energies to that right now.
On the home front, I'm still in massive cleansing mode. With the Frost Moon (also known as the Beaver Moon) 4 days ago, I started a massive sweeping purge. Cleaning out storage areas, getting rid of bad habits, and even doing some social network purging. Because no one needs 500 Facebook friends. Seriously. I've been meaning to pare it down for a while now, and I've finally started. I'm trying to trim my life down to only positive people and things. No more wasting my limited energy on pointless matters (*much*).
And, I suspect, once I've surmounted the initial hill in my big cut and clear, I may even be a better blogger for it. More time for blogging if I'm wasting less time on other things.
I miss you all, and I'm sorry I haven't been stopping by and commenting. I still love you, and I WILL be back as soon as I possibly can.
In the meantime, I can usually find time to throw up recipes around dinner time, so the recipe site is getting more regular updates than anything else. If you're really missing your daily doses of me, please follow the Recipes site!
For instance, the other night I made the most amazing Squash Soup. Seriously. I was completely blown away by how delicious it turned out, and it really only had a few ingredients. Please check it out and give it a try, it is SOOOO worth it. I haven't been this proud of a recipe in quite a while!
ALSO, I can't comment on your blog if the comment form is embeded below the post. I don't know why, but it's pissing me off. Last time this happened, all I had to do was delete all my cookies, however that isn't working this time. I have actually read a bunch of your blogs then been thwarted in my efforts to comment. If anyone knows the answer, let me know!
