Dear Blogosphere

To all of my bloggy friends out there, I'll be back someday.  You see, it's the end of the school year, and it's the beginning of summer, and on most days, I feel like I'm juggling with my hands tied behind my back.  I'm wading through paperwork and end-of-year stuff at school, while trying to keep 85 unruly seventh graders motivated and calm for a few more days.  I'm jumping from social event to social event as baby showers, secret pal gatherings, and all sorts of other things are happening.  I'm living out of suitcase between weekends because I can't find the time to unpack.  I'm struggling to do laundry, because we are now running three window a/c units to avoid melting and my ancient P.O.S. house's electrical capacity won't allow both to happen.  I'm trying to arrange the delivery of roofing materials to my house so my brother can repair our leaking porch roof on Saturday.  I'm also trying to make sure I have the money to buy said materials AND pay my brother for his time.  I'm TRYING not to eat carbs, but I'm looking at a half-empty bag of Party Mix.  I'm also trying to find a way to break the news to my son that his color-changing Spider Man shirt, which was on backorder and due to be delivered today, is no longer in stock and won't be coming.  And I'm trying, trying, trying not to rip the heads off two-faced, back-biting, snarky, egotistical snakes-in-the-grass at work.  So...I'm kind of busy right now, but I think by this time next week, I'll be back to normal and able to post about the brighter things in my life, like...drinking wine and having Emilio Estevez follow me on Twitter.  (He follows 32,000 people, but I'm easily flattered.)  And I'll read YOUR fabulous posts as well, and comment like nobody's business.  And I'll do it in my pajamas, because I'll be on summer break.

Wow, Tamara. I was thinking a similar thought last night (as I am running on only four hours of sleep a night for the past week.) What superhero's we women are(specifically moms). How we can orchestrate so many things--which usually enables us to make so many people feel pretty happy and special.

I hope you have a chance to kick up your heels soon. I'm sure you deserve it.
