Wrapping up January | Weekly Snapshot

Last week went much better than I dared hope it would be. I managed to catch some parts of the Presidential Inauguration and the evening program, and just the realization that the administration is really, truly, definitively changing has just sunk in, I think. I haven't spent more than about 5 minutes each day on the news (didn't feel the need to) and I hope to keep it that way for as long as possible. Life Yep, another busy work week. I know I hoped for a lighter work week, but who am I kidding. Work has been a different kind of busy each week this whole month and it will be nothing different this coming week. I just hope to figure out how to get my lunch hour freed up and use it to recharge. Not much happened in life this week - kids are loving being back at school, and I am loving my uninterrupted time, something that was only a luxury for much of last year.  Reading Even if life was busy this week, I did read quite a bit. I'm slowly reading So You Want To Talk About Ra

Dewy Ramblings: I'm back!

I'm back finally! I left on Friday evening, and reached back on Monday, early morning at 3 am. So as you can imagine, I'm still feeling sluggish after the very very hectic yet amazing weekend! I visited the Capitol Hill, the Washington monument, White House and the Smithsonian museums, and I loved all that history exuding out of the city. Did you know History was my favorite subject in high school? My friends and I walked a LOT! It was tiring, but I feel so elated now, I think we saw so much more that way. I'll write a more detailed weekend getaway post (hopefully with pictures) this Sunday, since right now, I would love to just do -nothing-!

I have a lot of posts to catch up with. I may take advantage of Google Reader's "Mark all as Read", but I would love to see how you all fared at the Bloggiesta - How did you do?

Also, what else did you do this weekend that I missed?

It's World Cup time when the World stops, lol, doesn't seem to affect the blogging world, hahahhaha

I am a France fan so less reading than usual here.

Glad you had a fun time away.
Welcome back! I'm glad you had a good time!

I hate to admit it, but I used Mark All As Read for the first time at the end of Bloggiesta. I had gotten so far behind, and I knew that 1000+ had to be over 2000, so I bit the bullet and did it. I felt a teensy bit of guilt, but mostly I felt relief to be starting fresh. I say go for it if you need to.
So glad you had a wonderful time in DC; it's such a great city! I am in London so blogging is going to be a bit difficult, but I am going to try.

Marce, isn't that so? I would expect people to drop everything and watch the WC! But no, blogging goes on, sigh... I support France too, btw! :)

Jen, I feel guilty about using the Mark All As Read. But if I feel overwhelmed, I am all for it! Hopefully, I plan to spend all day today weeding through the posts!

Helen, Have a great time in London. It is one of my definitely-should-see places!!

Glad to have you back *hugs*

Totally hit "Mark all as read!" That hulking reader is so stressful and you know we'll all have posts up again in a day or two!

Juju, it was so awesome to walk through the various sights in DC! Loved it!

Lisa, I have finally come around to realizing that. I think I will do that after all!
