The Scene In Which.......I Return. Apologetically.

Tonight I got an incredibly nice text from a friend of mine who I haven't seen in awhile. Being the super nice friend that they are, they noticed that we hadn't spoken, and took time out of a busy day to shoot a hello my way- or more specifically, a "Hey, you doing ok, haven't seen ya in awhile."


I have no earthly idea who the text was from. Either they got a new phone, or it's someone that I accidentally deleted, or it's someone who gave me their number but I just never entered it, or a myriad of other possibilities. Actually scratch that. Those are mostly the only possibilities.


I felt bad. Here was a friend who took the time to reach out to say hey, and I had to respond with a "I'm REALLY sorry, but who is this?" text.

I haven't heard back.

It's like our generation's version of a Dear John letter. The Dear John text.

"Dear John I dltd u from my ph. pls dont txt me. l8r."

Wait a sec......I was going somewhere with this. Come back......come back.......come back.

Oh right! Apologies.

Because.................yeah. It's been awhile.


And let's be honest- I know it hasn't been all that long, but it's been longer than usual, and for that I apologize. After all, this blog is faithfully read by at LEAST five whole people, and even though I've been routinely waking up not remembering which city I'm in kind of busy lately, I've been neglectful.

Here's a glimpse at what I've been doing while I haven't been blogging.

DRIVING. Driving is a big one. Been logging lots of miles. Over 2000 of them since September 7, to be exact. Why? Because I've been.....

LEARNING. Yep. Back to school. I've been taking a class up in Chicago two days per week and driving back and forth on a weekly basis. I chose Chicago because I get to pop in and see my family weekly, I've gotten to catch up with some friends, and it lets me maintain the myth to my Indy flower clients that I've, um, actually had any formal training prior to this date.

NAPPING. Because all that driving and learning makes me sleepy.

SPENDING TIME WITH PEOPLE IN REAL LIFE. Because being gone a lot, even for good reasons, means- well- it means you're gone a lot. So I've been spending time in both places trying to make up for being gone with the people I'm leaving behind each week. And thanking my lucky stars that they are all wonderful, supportive -insert other praising attributes here- people.

In other news, I finally got my Skip-It. And I stopped drinking coffee. And I made a second trip to Fair Oaks Farms, and this time I didn't flash anyone.

It's been a good couple of weeks.

And I promise to keep you better updated on the next couple!
