Still here - just overwhelmed!

Sunday, November 29, 2009

OK - I know I have been MIA for a few weeks.

First, I was having connection issues. After several calls to the cable company, a tech finally came out to fix the problem. One good day on the computer and then the rains came. For some reason, rain really messes with the connection - probably because one of our millions of tree rats (aka squirrels) gnawed a line somewhere.

I often jump on the computer at work during my lunch break as a back up, but work has been crazy. Deadlines, compliance paperwork, trying to finish experiments before the holidays - no time for a full lunch some days so definitely no time for computers. Somehow I am also supposed to organize the holiday party for our group.

And, we have family visiting. The in-laws are in the guest room (aka "Man Cave" - a converted tool shed) for an undetermined period of time, and my son and daughter-in-law are visiting.

The dance troupe just finished our show for the Darkness to Light gala. We have another big performance coming in January and I am on several committees for that.

Add a few holiday parties and more family. Talk about stress! Plus, the cold and lack of daylight makes me want to stuff myself and sleep.

Still, I am doing well with the exercise and not too bad with the food (except for the alcohol calories). I am working hard to maintain. Running my second 5K on Saturday so wish me luck!

Hopefully, I will be around more now! I will be needing all my Spark friends and their support to make it through the holidays!

    Don't we all need that support system? Makes you wonder who name the darn things? Not to much Holly about them once you reach a certain age. Hang in there!

    welcome back! iknow how too much family and events can take up all your energy- but remember to focus on yourself every now and then-- if you don't recharge and take care of you-- you have nothing left to give to everybody else. :-) good luck on your race!

    Sounds like you have a lot going on! Hopefully it will calm down after the holidays? In any case, we're here when you need us! Spark on!
