Sick Bee, Busy Bee, Hungry Bee

I've been MIA for a little over a week. My apologies.

Unfortunately a little over a week ago, I came down with a head cold. As the average person knows, staring at a computer screen for more than 30 seconds would make my eyes water. And my head was "fuzzy" so thinking wasn't much of an option either. Not to mention I got a little tired of wiping my sneeze off the screen. At the time I came down with the cold I had been working on a post with awards, as a couple bloggers had given me a couple. I'm still working on it, it looks like it'll be a long one. Must remember to put a disclaimer on it.

Moving on.

I'm better now, obviously, since I'm finally blogging again. It took me a whole day to get caught up on everyone's blogs, y'all post too much. I hadn't even logged into blogger for over a week. Even though I've felt better the last few days, I just didn't log it. Perhaps I just needed a mini-vacation.

I will have to do a post about this past Saturday at work. Just another one of "those" days. But it will have to wait until probably next week. The rest of my week is going to be busy. I have my regular days with the vet's - tomorrow, Thursday, and Saturday. I will have my regular ranch work. It's delivery week for the publication, so I'll be on the road with Papa D Thursday afternoon and all day Friday. My mom is coming into to town for a couple nights starting on Friday. I'll be house-sitting Wednesday night through Saturday morning for a neighbor of my grandparents. And Sunday begins my monthly drive to Redding for publication delivery and family visits.


Oh well. Keeps me out of trouble, though, right?

Ahem. Right?

Anyhoo, just wanted y'all to know I'm still alive. Just busy. But I will commence my semi-regular posting once the craziness is over . . . . next week.

Until then, happy blogging!


Don't forget, if you'd like to sign up for the Postcard Campaign to start receiving postcards in October, send me an email at theramblingsofcharliebrown @ If you don't send me an email, you don't get a postcard, and that makes a sad little mailbox. If you think I'm nutso and have no idea what I'm talking about, then just visit the Postcard Campaign page up top. It's fun, it's easy, and all it costs you is a few postcard stamps.

And now I'm hungry. Must go raid the pantry or fridge.


  1. Good to feel better, I must admit I hate the times when I'm too busy to stay caught up on blogging, People do tend to post way to much when we are away don't they?!

  2. I am such a horrible postcard participant. I got mine from Average Girl and when my family came for the wedding it got misplaced before I could take a picture and blog about it thanking her. Ugh...grrrr. I can't wait for the next one. This is so much fun. I love fun mail.

    Glad you are feeling better. :)

  3. Good to hear you're feeling better :) You have a very very packed schedule too.

  4. Glad you're feeling better, colds can be so evil lol

  5. THANK GOODNESS YOU ARE OKAY!!!!!!!! You were *this close* to getting an "Are you okay?" e-mail. lol

    I always get worried when blogging friends go MIA. Makes me nervous as a kitten.

    Colds are worse than pond scum stuck to the backside of a toad.

    I hope you feel better really soon, sweetie! *Hugs*

  6. Doria - I swear people post ten times as much when you're away! lol

    Jewels - Well, when you find it, then you can blog about it. lol

    Mark - I'm glad I'm feeling better, too. And I'm pretty sure I will need a vacation after this. lol

    Hazel - Yes, colds are very evil!

    Frisky - I laughed so hard over your deal about pond scum on the backside of a toad. Best description ever! And thanks for being *this close* to checking in on me. You're too sweet!

  7. walking here with a smile. take care.. have a nice day ~ =D
