{Seriously} MIA

Can it be? Has it really been over a month since I have last blogged?!

Holy toledo, Batman!

Honestly, I never meant to take this extended of an absence.
It all started with school becoming ridiculously busy.
Then, I took the plunge.

On Fat Tuesday, I impulsively decided to give up Facebook for Lent. No, I'm not Catholic, but I did it anyway. It's always a good reason to give up something that has taken control of a portion of your life.

Once upon a time, I lived in an itty bitty small town while my now-husband went to school. I had no computer, no internet, and no home phone. It was for those reasons that I decided to purchase a smart phone with internet capabilities. After all, I needed access to the outside world! I have since moved back to The City, have purchased a computer, and obviously have internet (I took an online course last semester, so it was a necessity).

Since then, Facebook had become a physical habit and complete waste of time. For crying out loud, I would get onto my facebook, look at the updates, get off, and get right back on multiple times without realizing that I had done so. It became a habit for my hands. And it was how I communicated with the majority of the people in my life. SAD.

So I followed my bff's lead and gave it up for Lent. And apparently everything else on the internet fell by the way-side without my knowledge.

This is my apology. I sincerely love this blog and love looking at everyone's creative updates, but I haven't found it a necessity lately. And that's probably a good thing. I also have been so busy (not to mention dying of allergies and a lovely broncheal infection that came as a result) with school and family that I haven't even been thrifty or crafty as of late!

Maybe this will change after another month or so. School will end as of the first week in May, and I will have 4 weeks of just work before summer school starts (*ahem, on my birthday! sad times!*).

Until the next post, just know that I'm trying to get my life and priorities in order. I didn't intentionally go a month without blogging; it just sort of happened. Don't give up on me quite yet. :)
