IWSG - Triple Whammy

First off, thank you, Suze, for posting your IWSG early and thus reminding me!  Y'see, I've not been around the blogs much lately, only in sprinklings, cuz I been hit by the triple whammy (as defined by me):

Whammy #1:  New responsibilities at day job + Boss who believes wishing makes it so = It wouldn't be polite to say the combination of words that are the only way to describe it.

Whammy #2: Weekends chock full o' family gatherings are glorious and wonderful...and eat up any hope of catching up with blog friends or making progress on draft #2.

Whammy #3: The very best kind of whammy I can imagine---a trip overseas at the end of the month WITH my daughter to SEE my sister!!!  Nevertheless, it kicks up the pressure to get all my non-blogging, non-writing shite together.

I guess this is my way of saying...not sorry, because I think we all understand that blogging isn't an obligation and can't be a top priority, so how about...I miss you, and I'm so looking forward to getting to spend more time with y'all in April. :) 

For purposes of this here support group, I leave you with one question:
What the hell is that in the background of the IWSG icon?
Seriously...what is it?  Alex?  Anyone, anyone?

How exciting a trip WITH your daughter to SEE your sister. And OVERSEAS! Yay for you.

As for the pick, I think it's a lighthouse. I think.

Michelle Gregory said...

i agree with Anne. it's a lighthouse.

That's three... a lighthouse.

Hellooooo ms. Nicki... I know the feeling about not spending as much time blogging.

I've been traveling ALL over the state of Florida for work and some play.

How exciting to be crossing the big pond again with your daughter.... You three ladies will have THE best time.

I am SOOOOOO longing forward to our B'day drink/lunch whatever in May when I return back to Chi town.

Save travel sweets. I hope to connect with you soon.

Time is the enemy!!

And, hey, I'm taking an overseas trip at the end of the month too. England, Scotland, and Wales.

Have a great time and we'll catch you again in April.

It's not a lighthouse. Any fool can see it's a penis . . . I guess any fool with penises on her mind.

I envy you going overseas!

(And I have to admit I love Janie's comment.)

My penis doesn't look like that. I reckon it's a salt shaker.

And it's a lighthouse. The photo has been reversed so it's like a negative.
