My apologies...

I know I’ve been MIA a lot lately. From my own blog, as well as yours. I’m sorry for the lack of comments. I’m still hanging around, lurking in the shadows most days. I’ll try to do better, but I’m not making any promises. I was falling into that dangerously consuming obsession of feeling like I was missing something if I didn’t read a billion blogs a day and I felt like I should take a few steps back.

Plus there really hasn’t been anything blog-worthy in my world lately. Sure, there’s a lot going on – but it’s not all been fun and games and I just don’t have the energy or the desire to drag it all out into the open.

Let’s just say that my trip out west could not come at a better time. We moved it back a week, so now I’m counting down the days to July 22 – when I’ll be on a plane to Billings, MT to start a week worth of down time surrounded by some of the country’s most beautiful scenery. I’m so glad that my family enjoys outdoorsy stuff and that (even though I’m technically grown and gone) they’re allowing me to be a kid again and crash their vacation.

So, only thirteen more days until I get a chance to see one of these guys:

Hey Heather!

I don't you should apologise for being MIA. I used to feel badly about not being able to post or read blogs lately, but sometimes it has to take a back seat to other things going on in my life, just like you are trying to do.

I do want to post more often, but it's impossible to do this summer. Anyway, have a great trip to the West Coast and I really look forward to reading about it!

Beautiful..I hope you have a wonderful time. I miss the days of vacationing with my parents!

And don't feel guilty about the blogging and commenting, it's important to take the time you need too!

You definitely don't miss that much by not reading a billion blogs a day ... it is so easy to fall into that trap though, isn't it? I'm constantly trying to "reel myself in" and relax about stuff.

I'm so excited for your trip!

I've been MIA a lot too... don't feel bad. (Or at least don't feel as bad as I do... what is it with all these guilty feelings of not staying caught up with everyone anyway?!)

I'm so excited for your vacation! Pictures, pictures, pictures!

Capricorn lives near a buffalo farm, so I see them all the time. And I always think of Kevin Costner in Dances With Wolves for some reason.
