Sorta like the Tin Man

Well, the computer is back.

But besides the overwhelming numbers on my email and my reader, I am feeling just plain old rusty.

I managed to clean out my two email accounts this morning. One was a reasonable 52 emails while the other was a shocking 192! Had I not done a quick check on Friday at my Dad's house, no doubt it would have skyrocketed over 250!

My Google reader is a WHOLE.DIFFERENT.STORY!

I was seriously having a little panic attack as I awaited for the screen to pop up this morning.


I knew I had to make some tough (and some easy) decisions pretty quickly.

I bit the bullet and quickly deleted all my non-essentials. PopSugar, Celebrity Babies, and other informational reads. That helped a LOT! But there was still a LOT to deal with!

I didn't want to miss anything, but for the sake of my sanity, I decided that I would read (scan) as much as I could, but just not comment. That last part kills me. It really does. Just know, if you visit me, then I have caught up on your life but just didn't feel I could spend the time it takes to comment as much as I like. I played fair, whether you had one post or 21!

Not sure? Well, I know there has been a trip to Hawaii, a potential move to Africa, upcoming trip home, lost teeth, lost time, parenting issues, concern for friends and family, and much much more! And so many wonderful pictures!

I realized while getting through the long, long list, that bloggers fall into several categories (all in jest, of course!):

The Over-Achiever Blogger. Otherwise known as, the ones who make the rest of us look bad or lazy!

The Regular "Joe"Ann Blogger. Those of us who make regular decent attempts at this thing.

The Check-In Blogger. Those that drop us a crumb now and then.


The Complete-Slacker Blogger. Those that we know and love, but they just don't make it a priority. Over, say, things like working or feeding their children!

At this time, I would like to personally thank all of the Complete-Slacker Bloggers in my reader that had mercy on me while I was gone!

Because frankly, many of you in the other categories talk way too much and made my life miserable today! ;)

I will try to clear out the cobwebs and download a few pictures before I return next week.

Missed you guys!!
