Back from hibernation--or, a cat nap, if you will

Good evening, kittens--

I suppose it's time for me to update the ol' blog, since I haven't done so in over a month. How many of you are still out there? (Taps gently on computer screen). Helloooo?

When I was in college, I had this fantasy of those career women with a Starbucks in one hand and a Blackberry in another. Power shoes, Bluetooth in ear, the whole nine yards.

Well...guess what...

I'm now one of those career women.

I've been working in my field for ten years now, and I don't know when or how it happened, but all of a sudden, I went from rookie to veteran overnight. It's been both exciting and scary. It's interfered with my blogging, and especially my reading. I've been lucky to post a few random entries, mostly about the weather, and one book review.

And I've been watching and reading a LOT of news coverage. Collective bargaining, public sector workers at odds with local government, politics, and now...the earthquake in Japan. We've had what, three major earthquakes in the world in the last thirteen months? (Haiti, Chile, and now Japan). I've been steadfastly avoiding any story having to do with Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan.

Lastly, I've been a lurker. Well, mostly a lurker. I've commented here and there on random blog entries. But I haven't posted on my own blog, mainly because my life has been this:

"Wake up. Work. Come home. Eat dinner. Go to bed. Oh, and a few meetings thrown in on a daily basis for good measure."

I have very few leisure events planned for the future, save for a weekend trip to the city with Mama Cat and Sister Kitten. But compared to last year, my social calendar is very empty. No weddings or baby showers/bridal showers. No fun concerts. No spontaneous road trips.

So that's where I am right now. I guess this time is teaching me how to live in the present, and not anticipate the future too much. And at this present time, I think I'll go have myself a glass of wine. :)

Hope to be posting regularly again soon.

A glass of wine is the perfect way to wrap a comeback blog post. Bottoms up!

Welcome back...I know how it is when real adult life takes away from fun life stuff!

I've been diggin some great wines from Portugal! And I have been way absent from the blogosphere for the past few months. Taking a little time now to do some perusing-thought I'd stop by...even though I see you on FB!
