Remember when…

you posted when you wanted to and didn’t when you didn’t have anything to say?

you sat around and read blogs and commented for hours on end?

you never heard from a company with a cool trip or a fabulous produce to review (but didn’t have to write about it)?

you reveled in your comments?

you leisurely drank your coffee/tea/wine while perusing the sites of your cyber friends to see what they were up to at that very moment?

you didn’t have a to-do list a mile long?

I do.  But it’s been a while.

This week I’m going back to those glorious days.

On Saturday, I…

finished up my last design project and closed my queue.

wrote my Chic Critique post for this Friday and scheduled it.

added fresh content to Eat Local Philly.  There will always be more to add, but I’m not going to think about it until I get back from vacation.

posted my latest giveaway.

reduced my “emails flagged for action” by at least half.

pulled out my scrapbooking and caught up on my kids’ albums.

And today I…

read a few blogs and left comments.

took the kids out for lunch.

sat on the couch and read a book.  In the middle of the day.

hung out on Skype and Twitter.

didn’t work.  Not for one minute.

HEAVEN.

This week I will…

leave for a 2-week vacation in Maine.

only blog when I feel like it.

read lots of books.

take naps.

eat lots of lobster.

revel in my family.

listen to my kids laugh,

and sing,

and bicker.

talk with my husband.

visit with my mom and dad,

and my grampa,

and my cousins and aunts and uncles.

take day trips to quaint coastal towns.

dine on the lawn at the Jordan Pond House.

climb mountains.

sit in a cozy coffee shop and surf the web with free WiFi,

and hopefully leave lots of comments around the blogosphere, just like old times.

roast marshmallows over a campfire.

make popovers.

cruise in the motorboat.

sit in a spongy La-Z-Boy and gaze at the lake,

while I doze.

or read.

or think.

See ya on the flip side!
