Bad Blogger Girl

I thought about writing a post filled with great excuses about the lack of posts over the last three months. Then I thought I’d write a post filled with good reasons for that silence. I even contemplated telling the truth but realized that was boring and no one wanted to read about that.

The truth, however, behind the summer of 2009 will take far, far, far more than one simple blog post. You see, when last I blogged I had yet to tell you about my amazing Euro-trip through Hungary, Austria, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Germany, the Czech Republic, Poland, and Slovakia. As much fun as Hubby and I had tooling around for two weeks in a tiny car, our adventures had barely begun.

Since then I’ve been back to India – the country that started this whole expat dream. From there we hit Dubai, London, Inverness, took a side trip to Jordan, and stopped to visit a mystery city, where I met up with several Internet and bloggy buddies. I have also formed a slight addiction that is not only costing me far more money than I had anticipated but is also driving Hubby nuts. (Okay, that part isn’t so bad.) Plus, I’m well on my way to forming a second addiction that may secretly be the best marital therapy since Eve slapped Adam upside the head and told him to start taking responsibility for his own actions.

Oh and I have a HUGE announcement.

Am I forgiven for leaving you with a photo of the Gloved One for so long? What if I promise that I still have one more trip yet to take, and lots of blogs yet to post? All those stories I hinted at above and many, many more are on their way to a blog feeder near you. Best of all, I can finally catch up on what you guys have been doing all summer.

I really am sorry about the silence but I promise you that I will more than make up for it in the weeks that come!

I was just thinking about you this weekend -- good to "hear" from you again!

Protege said...

I think having a life is a good excuse to be away from blogging.;) And considering your huge announcement to come, I think there will be even a lot more of your time required from real life in the future.;)

Addictions...huge announcements...travel...I cannot wait to hear more. And it's horrible of you to be gone for so long - and then just tease us about upcoming posts :-)

Sounds like a bunch of exotic stories.
Wonder what the surprise will be though.
