I'm Ba.....Ack!

 (The title of the post is how my cousin's little daughter, who was 3 years old at the time,  approached my mom and I at the mall in D.C. when we were shopping with them and she had just returned from using the Little Ladies Room at the store. We still crack up when we think about it because she was dancing about and had her arms wide-open. It is similar to how I feel I am appearing today, in this post, other than the fact that I'm typing and not dancing at the moment and you can't actually see me.) 

Dearest Readers, 

I'm back! I'm here again. Oh how  you have missed me I have missed you!

I apologize for temporarily making my blog private, if any of you have missed me. I had some suspicious activity of blog-viewing in my google analytics account, so I decided to make it private and did so without alerting you all  (for the most part). 

I think I'm back now (for good? or for a while). 

If you read my blog and have never commented or don't "follow" please introduce yourself just so I know you're reading! I don't know if there is such thing as blogger etiquette but it only seems polite to me that you would let me know you're around and reading and not some creepy stalker that checks my blog for updates every-hour-on-the-hour-every-day-of-the-week. If the suspicious activity resumes, I may again go private. Or create a new blog and not tell you and make this one private. And if you check my blog more than I do, well, I feel a little bad for you because I'm really not that interesting. 

To my old readers: I apologize for leaving suddenly and unexpectedly and will fully understand if you feel betrayed by me and no longer want to read my blog. But I would sure be happy if you would stay. I was fairly busy with the "draft" and finals the last few weeks, so my posts have been intermittent and probably not of the greatest quality(so you weren't missing much), but I'm going to keep at it. I start a practicum-type of class for summer tomorrow and I'm not sure if I'm excited or nervous or anything.

I also started the Shred! Ha. And my only wish is that I would have started sooner. It really is fabulous and I feel tight, toned, sore, and on-my-way-to-bikini-ready! And I only started it yesterday. Get it! Seriously. If you don't have it already. I don't usually jump on people's bandwaggons: e.g. I don't have facebook anymore and never started scrap-booking and I never did Atkins(adkins? I don't remember) or the South Beach diet. But this Shredding craze is worth you money and your 20 minutes. Wow. Umm, in the interest of full disclosure, I've only done two days, but I feel like I'm even gonna feel fine wearing the swim suit over Memorial Day weekend (! yay for a trip!) and I haven't even been running as consistently as I used to. 

And did I mention that my next version of the draft has been turned in? One. Step. Closer. Ahhh. 

Today I'm relishing in the "Summer" of my summer and getting a facial, going shopping, and maybe chopping some hair off! Ha. When I say some I mean like an inch, tops. And maybe not even that.  I don't know if Handsome would be thrilled if he came home to a short haired, totally toned wife! He might not recognize me. Oh yeah, I have only shred for two days. And as much as I think I would like to chop my hair off, I'm just not ready!! 

So anyway... I'm here! And I'm still writing,

I'm so glad you are back!

I'm glad you are back too! I was wondering what happened to you. So Shred - I assume this is an exercise DVD? Somehow I haven't heard of it before.

I had the same thing happen a few months back and I got kind of freaked out. Turns out I was making a big deal over nothing, but it is nice to have an idea of who is reading your stuff.

Oh, and I'm not a crazy stalker, just a new reader...and not a crazy one. :)
