Back to Normal....

Hi everyone!!

I'm sorry I didn't blog earlier! I really, really wanted to, but time just got away from me ^_^; I came back home on Sunday at around 10.30pm and was pretty tired from the drive. Then, while my boss is away and that's pretty cool, I still had to come in to work on Monday :( I did rebel and went to work later than usually though... only to discover that the lab was a mess! My co-workers have been very hard at work and very rushed and as a result, let say they haven't cleaned after themselves ^_^;

At home, I'm once again having issues with my computer. Ugh! Everything seems to be working fine except for the internet: my browser keeps crashing. It's the same problem I've had in the past... and I know that eventually, I'll be having a lot of blue screens and won't even be able to start any internet browser. Grrrr. I've just re-format my computer about 6 months ago... and 6 months before that. I talked to my friend and she said it was probably physical, like the actual hard drive. Sigh. So yeah, I'm pretty much ready to buy a new one... Although yesterday and this morning, it did behave itself. It probably knows its end is soon and trying to lull me into a "Oh it's ok!" feeling and then, die on me. Computers are evil and deceiving!!

So that, combined with work and fatigue from the trip - it means that I haven't done much ^_^; I've managed to blog-hop which actually took me two days to complete LOL. I've finished reading Summer at Seaside Cove by Jacquie D'Alessandro :) I've also managed to fall asleep and have woken up these past two days with my glasses still on LOL. Oh and I've also unpacked my suitcases - pretty much put everything in the laundry room LOL. I think that's the fastest I've ever unpacked the suitcases. And that's about it ^_^; I haven't even started unpacking my new precious - well actually, I did take them out of the boxes to take pictures and then, put them back in. I think that I'm actually overwhelmed... and I also need time to sort it all out... Time and space. So that most probably mean the week-end.

Another challenge is how am I going to blog about RWA? Both the conference and the books LOL. If you go around on blogland, you'll see that most attendees have been happy at how restrained they've been during RWA - either because they've gone digital, had to limit themselves because of shipping/traveling or simply it wasn't their first RWA. Well... have you ever seen my name and restrained in the same sentence before? And let's not forget, I was driving to RWA... which meant no weight restriction... Yeah. You'll all proud of my haul... and probably a bit green with envy LOL. Anyway, I think I've come up with a good idea... now, let's get the ball rolling! :)


  1. So glad you made it home safe and sound. Now, when are you coming back? ;)

    I can't wait to see your RWA haul. I'm sure we will all be VERY proud of your book hauling talents!! ^_^

  2. Good to have you around again! :) I can't wait to see what you got at RWA and your thoughts on it!

  3. Nath and restraints? What's that? lol.

    Can't wait to see your haul either. I'm just green thinking about them! haha.

  4. That sucks about your computer. Have you backed everything up?

    I can't even imagine how many books you managed to load into your car. If I had to guess I'd say the entire back seat was full. :)

  5. Christine - LOL, I don't know. My sister is pestering me already LOL.

    LOL, Nath at her best :)

    Alex - It's coming :) Hopefully, I'll remember everything and it'll be coherent :)

    Tabitha - My thoughts exactly!

    Leslie - Well, it's been behaving.... so perhaps it's okay? I'm knocking on wood.

    LOL, a lot. But I didn't want to be obvious, so I didn't have much in the back seat. Plus, my sister was there :)
