Our Lives This Week

In Asti’s Life…

I think we all know my exciting news of the week:


As a result, expect to not see me around over the next two weeks. (As much as I love you guys, Dave gets priority ;))

Oh, wait… That’s not right. Expect to not see me for another month. That’s right. I’ve decided to extend my two-week I’m-reuniting-with-Dave hiatus to a one-month I’m-reuniting-with-Dave-and-then-trying-to-catch-up-on-all-the-things hiatus with Kelley’s lovely permission. I have comments on over thirty posts I haven’t responded to and practically no posts scheduled as a buffer for when life gets crazy, and yeah, I would just like to give myself some time to take care of that instead of coming back and drowning under it all.

I really ought to write a post someday about my perspective on blogger guilt and the constant back and forth I have with it. How sometimes I just want to stop working so hard because it’s overwhelming and exhausting, but then I feel bad because I want to be able to respond to all the lovely comments I get and build relationships with others. Le sigh.

But hey, right now is a happy time so YAY LONDON and see you guys in a month! (Be nice to Kelley while I’m gone, will ya? ;))
