Diary of an Eccentric is 7 years old!! Wow! And I can’t believe I’ve been so busy that I missed my big day (June 4). I really appreciate all of your support over the years. I have made so many friends through this blog, and you all mean so much to me.
I’m sorry I haven’t been around much these last couple of months, but things have been so hectic that I’ve barely had time to read. And I miss reading and blogging and reading all your blogs so much, I really do.
The past two weeks were such a whirlwind, with The Girl’s 8th grade dinner and dance, chaperoning the class trip to Hershey Park, helping out with field day, cheering on Jerry and The Girl in the 8th grade vs. faculty/parent softball game, screaming like a fool when she scored her first goal in her last soccer game, and then tearing up as she received her diploma, won the subject award in READING (so proud!!), and had her high school scholarship announced. Best of all, my mom came from CT for the graduation and the party we held for a small gathering of friends, and it was just so wonderful to hug her because I hadn’t seen her in over a year. Of course, the four days she stayed with us flew by, and before we knew it, we were on the train platform saying goodbye. Sniff, sob!
Now that things are settling down, I really hope to get back to reading and blogging regularly. Over the past two weeks, I’ve been in go-go-go mode, with barely enough time to sleep, let alone read. I managed to read about 80 pages on the bus ride to and from Hershey (which is a big accomplishment, given the screaming 8th graders behind me), but that was really just a tease. So this weekend, between naps and laundry and maybe even taking The Girl to see The Fault in Our Stars (with pockets filled with tissues), I hope to get reacquainted with my TBR tower.
But before I get back to a regular blogging schedule, I need a little time to breathe and be still and enjoy the feel of a book in my hands, so please bear with me.
