Life: I need to breathe!

I'm sure you've all noticed that Jax has been pretty much missing in the blog world!
Although she has been trying real hard to keep up with you guys and your blogs!

For those of you who have noticed my absence, I am very much alive.
I'm alive and well.  I'm just really, really busy!
...but busy in a good way.  I totally love it...

Jax, what exactly have you been up to that has been keeping you from us?
I knew you all were concerned!!  No worries guys, I'll let you all know!

1.  School
The genius in my head told me to take a summer class to get a few credits out of the way.
Turns out squeezing a whole semester into a four week course is similar to ancient Chinese torture!
The fact that the first draft of my final was due by the second week of class was a great hint!

2.  Work
I've been working ridiculous hours because of internal changes within my company.
On top of my daily tasks, I have been given the workload of a second employee!
Goodbye blogging time during work hours!

3.  Family
My family has been sucking my very little spare time dry.
Between dinner dates, parties, chasing mice, and just spending quality time together, I've been booked!
These aren't complaints.  I love every minute of my family time.

4.  Boyfriend
I've been seeing someone new and really enjoying it.
Juicy details?  Eh, not yet!

5.  Vacation
Next week I will be taking a full weeks vacation to lounge on the beach and get some sun.
Because of this, I've had to be working double time on my personal errands to prepare.
Ohh, how I can't wait to get a tan and spend some girl time with my Mommy and SuperDebbie!

I apologize to everyone who's blogs I have been neglecting.
I'll be working super hard this week to catch up with you all!

In the meantime, please excuse my lack of posts.
I have a lot of things going on and am running out of time to do them!
If you really, really miss me then just shoot me an e-mail.  I always respond :)

What has been eating up your time this summer?

  2. Changes in work has killed my free time very well. I dont do as much worke here than I did before. I think this time of year somehow affects other bloggers, I notice a lot of people who dont post as much as they did in the spring

    1. Right? I used to get a lot of my blogging done during work hours. That was stopped real quickly when they decided to give me the work load of 3 people instead of 2. Sigh!!! I get an assistant next month so let's hope the work gets cut down a little.

      I noticed the same thing. Bloggers must love the sun!! lol

  3. I was actually thinking about you this morning and was a tad bit worried about you my dear blogging friend. So glad to hear all is well. Looking forward to some juicy details about the hot new boyfriend!!!

    1. Thanks, Betsy!! Well Taylor is a trooper because I'm not sure if I would ever do that again. I am STRESSED over this silly class. :( :( lol

    2. haha...don't worry..you'll blink and it will be done! :)

      Glad you're fine...actually, I thought you still had that party toe and were STILL out on the town somewhere! lol....

      Delete
    3. Omg, I know!! When my professor said, "The first draft of your final project is due on Monday" I was like "What?! It's only class #2 right now." LOL Horrible!!

      Party toe?? That's where it's at!!! hahahahaha

  6. Summer classes are definitely intense. I once took an upper level literature course during the summer term. I still get a bit of a twitch when I think about it... *twitch*

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Omg, I totally get the whole twitching thing. I really don't think that I'd ever do it again!! The extra credits are totally not worth this stress!!

  8. Wow it has been so long since the cat has seen you with a new post, the cat thought you were dead. Hmm believe that? hahaha somehow I doubt it hahaha

    The course does sounds like hell, so screw that, glad I never did that. I can attest to catching those damn mice taking a loooong time haha and a post from bonkers land? Oh won't that be grand. The cat can't wait for that hahahaha

    1. hahahaha The Cat knew all of this already. But, you did a great job pretending :P :P

  9. I was wondering why you stopped posting and commenting so much! I'm glad things are going well and I can't wait to hear about the new boyfriend. lol (And the vacation and stuff too, of course.)

    1. Yes, it really was the class that is killing me. That's really been eating up all my spare time. I don't even have time for dinner anymore. Le sigh!! As far as the boy goes, we like!!! lol Vacation? Yes, please!!

      Delete
  10. Just breathe, no worries! Those summer classes are killers, but you'll feel great once its done! And yay about the new man...Im glad it's progressing! You definitely need to make time for that!
    Ive never known how you could post everyday like you have...I can barely manage two posts a week!

    1. Thanks, Kianwi!! Yes, the summer class is destroying my life!!!! Never again will I subject myself to something so damn horrible. lol

      A lot of the posts that I would put up daily were done during my work hours. With all the extra work load that I've been given, there hasn't been anytime for R&W. Oh well, things got to give somewhere, right?? lol

      Delete
  11. I hated when work got in the way with blogging - how rude!

    Boyfriend, huh....how dare you tease us all so....we expect details and we want them now!! Just kidding, my love. You enjoy your real world and we'll be here. I'm glad to know you're having fun with the dwindling days of summer!

    1. PS - the eye is for Pat....

    2. Right? How dare work take over some of my blog time?! Hmph!!

      LMAO Oh, you want details? Hmmm, he's Cuban and very sexy. He's really super sweet and very nice. He's about 6'3 with a rocking body. He's one of those guys that is cute but doesn't know how cute he is. Want more details? I'll shoot you an e-mail. LOL!! Downfalls? He doesn't know a thing about football... lol

      hahahahaha @ the eye.

      Delete
    3. Ohhh, I love the details you gave - especially the not knowing he's handsome part - Devin is the same way! Heck, yeah, shoot me an email, I want to know how you met and all that good stuff. Cyber Mom wants to know and I especially want to know if the family approves...

      I can overlook not knowing about football. You'll be a good teacher =)))

  13. Well, busy is a good thing (except the work part)!

    So happy for you about the new relationship! I hope that continues to go smoothly!

    Also, have a great vacation! Nothing better than lounging by the ocean with cold drinks and people you love!

    I hope you have a blast!

    1. Thanks, Ray!! I always appreciate your encouraging words :) I can't wait for the vacation either. Lord knows I could really use it! Well, who couldn't use a vaca?? ;)

  14. I looked for your post yesterday and saw you didn't do one and wondered what was going on. Don't feel bad about not posting when you're busy or feel bad about not getting to our blogs. You've been around for a long time and have done a marvelous job of getting to us all. We will wait for you Jax.

    Best of luck with the new boyfriend and I hope he's as nice as I hear he is gorgeous.

    1. Thanks, Anne!! Yes, he's a sweet heart and we like :) :)

      The main issue has been my school. The summer class has been rough and now I'm finally going on vacation. I'll be back to regular soon. xo

  15. I work as a slave for the most evil corporation on earth... so, I feel your pain in regards to doing the work of 2 people. But I don't like them taking Jax away from us like this, and monopolizing all your time. Maybe I should write my congressman about this to complain. I'm going to google now, to try to figure out who my congressman is.

    1. LMAO Finally, something construcitve!! I will wait for the results on this. :)

  18. I took a bit of a break from blogging, too. Someone commented that it's common in the Summer, and perhaps it is, but after spending some time away from Blogger, I don't think I will ever post as often as I used to.

    1. Yes, I never realized how much of time it took up until I stopped doing it for a short time. The summer thing does appear to be true in the blog world :)

  20. I know about the busyness of life. That's something I'm going through as well.

    It's great to hear about your new love, even if you're not making it public yet! :-)

    1. hahaha Yes, it's under wraps at the moment :)

  21. Do not ever feel the need to say you are sorry for living and enjoying life. We all need to unplug and step away from our blogs. It refreshes not only our minds and bodies but our writing as well. Go enjoy yourself!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thanks, Kristen!! That means a lot. Unplugging has become crucial. I'm officially running on zero me time and it's driving me bananas! ;)

  22. WHAT!!! You tease us with the tantalyzing boyfriend tidbit and leave us no juicy details? Your absence is understood, your lack of posts forgiven, but the lack of steamy details...shameful!

    That aside, have a great time at the beach.

    ReplyDelete

    1. LOL Well, I'm glad that I'm excused for the part that I apologized for at least. hahahaha

      I will enjoy the beach, as long as it don't rain ;) xo

  23. Well, I see life's treating you well! That's always good to hear.
    Whats keeping me 'busy' is my desire to be the best Tekken fighter in my school! :P

  24. me too! i have been struggling recently with work and the warm weather. :) Glad to hear I'm not the only one!

  25. You have a life? WHAT? Totally unacceptable!

    I've been busy getting my new solo book ready for prime time. You know, so it doesn't suck. Apparently more than just my mother is going to read it so it needs to be good.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Happy to have you back if you noticed I've been missing for a long time on my blog. Life truly happens. You become single, lose your camera man,. they take their camera back, fall in love again then don't have a camera. You get what I'm saying. Anywho that's what happen to me. But I'm back reading your posts.

  27. No prob...fully understand. :)

  28. Those darn boyfriends taking up time. haha. Wait, maybe he will distract you during football season and my fantasy team will pummel yours. On second thought, you two should spend lots of time together...
