I Miss You All!!!

I know that I have been a mostly absent blogger for the last, OH! eight to ten months and I hate it. There are a couple of reasons for that. At work they only update our software once every two or three YEARS and we are still running Internet Explorer 7. So this means that I can read your blogs, but I cannot comment on them. I finally got so frustrated that I stopped reading!

But work keeps me busy - and they aren't paying me to blog there. And then there is school! Spring Break started today after I turned in my final paper. It was a fairly impressively written discussion on how the Tuskegee Syphilis Study plays into the federal regulations required today for those attempting to do research with humans involved. Exciting stuff! (It was pretty fun, really, but I am a dork!)

I have the next 9 days of allowing my brain to do nothing more strenuous than watch The Walking Dead (and do you all LOVE that show as I do?), read a couple of lame novels, and, well, work. It does pay the bills. After that I have NINE more weeks of school! NINE! And the lovely graduation! I do not mind telling you, I am so ready!

I am taking the entire summer off to let my brain decay before I start my Masters in the fall! I hope to catch up with all of you either over the next week or over the summer.

And, in case you care, I am paying close attention to the climate in this country and it is UGLY! Headed to Tallahassee on April 28th to march in protest against the Republican war on women. There is a march planned for your state capital also!!

So nice to see you pop up on my blog! Good for you; you're within sight of the finish line for this degree and ready for a hard-earned breather; even better for you: you mean to press on! I am awed.

The Walking Dead popped up as an option on Netflix. What the heck is that about? I assumed it was zombies and vampires, so I gave it a pass.

Glad to see you still around. I figured you must be busy. Congratulations on your almost graduation. We are all still here.

Nice to know that all is well with you. But you're making me tired when I think of all that you do! Congratulations for all that you've done so far...sorry, I gotta go take a nap; you tired me out.

Hi! That was a really long time this time, to be taking one of your "sabbaticals" from here. I was beginning to think you had thrown it all up, in favor of what I'm told is the easier posting on Facebook, etc.

Glad to see you back and still functioning as well as ever.

ZOMBIES. I LOVE them. No vampires for me, but zombies are an obsession!

I am glad you are still here!

Sometimes I feel the same way. Enjoy your nap!

Another post from me already! I hope to do better, but life gets nuts! Facebook is easier, but I am FB friends with my mom, my mother-in-law, all of the kids and now the grandkids! There is something to be said for having my only little piece of the internet!

You'll be protesting? That's great! The protests against the war on women are scheduled across the country, including my state capitol.

Yes! I will be in Tallahassee! With hopefully a lot of other people!
