I'm Baaaaack! (With an explanation and apology!)

I’m back from my bloggy-hiatus. I apologize profusely for going MIA for so long! It’s been my intention to write for D-A-Y-S now but I just have not had the time or energy.

I completely failed the Best of 2009 Blog Challenge although I was doing pretty well until Christmas. I had grand plans to spend the week between Christmas and New Years catching up on my blogging and reading all of your lovely blogs. It seems my health had other plans.

I got sick. Very sick. I haven’t been that sick in years. I’ll spare you all the gory details, but safe to say I spent from the 28th until the 31st in bed. I didn’t leave the house except for 2 doctors visits and one pharmacy trip. It wasn’t pretty.

I had originally planned to have some people over for New Years Eve (including ShyBoy – more on that later) but as late as 4:30 on New Year’s Eve day I was still in bed and still on pure crackers and ginger ale and seriously considering cancelling. In the end I had the party, although I spent a good portion of it watching everyone else have fun. At the beginning of the week I had given some thought to the obvious dilemma/awkwardness that New Year’s Eve represents, but by the first doctor’s visit where he told me I shouldn’t cough near people (let alone anything else) I let any NYE thoughts go. All in all the night was good, nothing to update you on. ShyBoy did come, although I was feeling so terrible for most of the party that I really don’t remember much that happened.

Anyway, I digress.

By January 1st I was feeling a little better, but my energy levels still went up and down. My dad came into town on the 2nd for a few days for my birthday (the 4th) so I had very little time. Between the holidays, my birthday and being sick, I ended up being off work for a week and had a WHOLE whack load of work to catch up on last week. With my energy not being 100% yet, I came home most nights last week and went straight to bed. Sad but true. Last weekend I planned to go out with a bunch of friends on Friday night and then I had my work Holiday Party on Saturday night. I’ll save those updates for my next post too, but needless to say I’ve been pretty busy.

I’m very much looking forward to doing nothing but catching up on errands, housework, your blogs and sleep this coming weekend!

I hope you all had a good start to 2010! Fill me in on your New Year’s Eve’s! What did you do?
