Brief Break

Some of you may have noticed a big giant FAIL on my part to get around adequately. Instead of a nice big dose of blog hopping, I have been down around 10 a day—visiting new followers and a FEW comment returns, but I am having trouble with it. The writing deadline at home and a swamped workload at work. So I think the best thing for me to do is take a break until I both have more time for thoughtful posts AND am in a position to reciprocate. The break will last until I get this revision back to my editor—I suspect by mid-week next week I should be back, but it really depends on my concentration. I have done first round on 2 of the three chapters under deadline, but there is research to do to fill in a little, and then a cleaning up... So we will see.

Anyway, I apologize for my absence and I super-duper double apologize for my low rate of getting around to see all of you.

I will leave you with a little amusement:


If you end up WITH pants however, it was BAD. Very BAD.



The science cats are always my favorite.

 
Where is a frog like this when you need him?

Anybody suspect we've been infiltrated?

We'll call this one gallows humor...

I'll miss you guys!

Thanks for the morning smiles! I totally understand about the blog break...I had to do the same thing a couple of times last year. Good luck with everything!

Love the infiltrated cats! It took me a little time to figure out who was infiltrating!

Sometimes life takes over and needs must. I hope you get the work done to your deadline.

The cat over whose shoulder I'm reading this thinks the photos are hilarious. I believe I heard her laugh/snort.

Listen, priorities are so important. You have much going on. You'll be missed, but your legions of fans surely understand. xoxo

Have a restful break. And 10 blogs a day for you makes me the champion slacker. Take care of yourself!
