Staycation 2013 is officially over. After six work days – and two weekends! – of leisure and shelf-building, I found myself back on the Metro platform this morning, wearing pants with buttons before noon,* making my way to the office. I survived re-entry back into my normal life, but it will probably be a few days before I feel like I am caught up and on track.

And speaking of re-entry, I think I am heading back into post-a-day blogging. As it turned out, last year’s daily experiment seems to have absolutely ruined my ability to post on an occasional basis, though I managed just fine doing that for the first four years of having this blog. I don’t expect I’ll be quite as militant this time around (translation: I won’t beat myself up if I miss every now and again) but I’m gonna give it a whirl.


* If you’re on staycation and you change out of soft pants before lunch, you’re doing it wrong.

    Post a day 🙂 non-militant style, I super like. Missed you. And absolutely on soft pants. That is one of my favorite parts of being a stay-at-home-mom (and maybe one of Chris’s least favorites).
    Anyway, welcome back and Let’s Go C-A-P-S!!!

    Missed you and your commentators! Glad you reconsidered (this being the week before your b-day). And GO WILD!

    I’ve missed your post-a-day…but isn’t there something between daily and rare? Don’t stress yourself!

      There definitely is… but that’s what I planned to do starting in 2013, and managed all of three posts. I’ve apparently lost the knack for regular-but-not-daily posting.

    So glad for this great news!! We ALL need the connections! But don’t harass yourself when you miss a post or two (but that’s all — ha ha!). 😉

    P.S. And here I was justifying “soft pants” until noon cuz I’m retired — but guess that’s sort of permenant staycation, huh?

      OK. For some reason I can’t leave a reply of my own, but I can reply to someone else’s. Weird. I have known this for a while, but didn’t really care because I comment so rarely I figured “Who cares?” But I just have to say your blog is a huge way that I keep up with family (I know…I’m lame. I accept it. I pretend it’s because I’m low maintenance…not lazy)…so I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY missed you. So…no pressure…but so many thanks!!!!!!

        Really? That’s totally weird. Does the comment box not show up? Or does it just not work when you try to use it?

    Thanks, all, for the warm welcome back!

    • Susan April 4, 2013 / 8:35 pm

      It shows up, but won’t let me put the cursor in. Get this…the box turns bright blue. And I can only hit reply to one comment. So….I can’t reply to your comment because it doesn’t show up. I have to reply to this one. But this computer is ancient…so…

        Yeah, I’m gonna guess you’re having issues w/ an out-of-date browser. You can probably update it, unless your computer is too old to run newer versions. (In which case, you’re probably also dealing with major online security issues…)
