I am absent.
I am absent minded.
I am seriously buried in academic work right now that is taking up my time.
I have a deadline: July 30th.
I have to have a completed chapter by then.
I'm submitting said chapter to a graduate paper competition.
I'm nervous about it.
I'm doubting my abilities.
What else is new?

I also traveled to the DC area for a wedding last weekend.  It was a blast.  I got to see some old friends, and even got some Christmas knitting done on the long & fun drive with my Mom, Step-dad, & sister.  Yes, you read that right.  I went on a trip without my husband and kids, and it was Fab.U.lous.

Here I am in full-on family tour guide mode. 
My Uncle Steven would be so proud. 

Me & Abraham 
P.S. Andy's never been to DC & totally recognized this memorial from Night at the Museum 2. 

Me with the White House

Me & my Mama @ the wedding reception 

So I'm sorry for being rather absent from my blogging world as of late.  I'll be back. For now, know that my creative energies are being utilized in a most productive way...and no I don't mean just Facebook and Twitter.  Dissertating is a lonely business.  I'll be back to tell you all about my stress relief efforts soon. :-)
