Long Time No Blog

Anyone missed me out here in Bloggy Land? Whether you did or not, I have missed it! Here is why I have not been able to blog lately: the firewall in my office was put back up. I know what your first thought is: She blogged at work? Why yes, yes I did.
I won't bore you with the details of my job in the wonderful world of recruiting, but let's just say that I don't always have a full 8 hours of things to do at work. So I fill part of my days with reading the blogs I follow, blog myself, check Facebook (a lot!), personal email, US Magazine...well, you get the point. It is a far cry my my supreme busy days at Pfizer when I had days I worked through lunch and I most always brought work home to do at night. I just remind myself daily that I am grateful to be employed.
But noooooooooooo, my company had to get smart and put up a firewall. I know, how dare them! How dare them cut into MY internet browsing. Oh wait, they are the ones that pay me, right? Ok, whatever. I have tried to read blogs on my iPhone and it just isn't the same. I am constantly making the screen smaller and bigger, then scrolling up, down, right, left. It sucks. I want to read the blogs at night, but I have to be up at 4:30 am, so all I can think about after my kids are in bed is to get as much done around the house and get the kid's stuff ready for the next day in a hour. Then I get maybe 30 minutes to lie in bed and watch TV...which by the way is my most favorite thing to do when the house is quiet. So I have to choose...TV? Blogs? TV? Blogs? Sorry, TV has been winning these past 2 weeks.
For all of my loyal readers (ha!), please keep checking in from time to time to see if I posted anything. I'm not gone forever! And PLEASE leave me comments. They are music to my ears. Er, eyes. Music to my eyes? That doesn't sound right. You know what I mean, I love them and they keep me wanting to blog!
I need to close now. It is almost 10:00 and I need to get my rear in bed and watch just wee bit TV before I need to close my eyes!

Ugh! How dare they put up a firewall!!!!! One week, I did multiple blogs in one day when I had time and them posted them throughout the week. That helped!

Hope you enjoyed going in later to work today!!

Have a great week!

Firewalls, schmirewalls. Dang employer! TONS of people blog from work, so I won't tell! : )

Darn firewalls!

I always enjoy reading your blog even though this is the first time I've posted anything.

Your blog inspires me to be a better blogger. My blog is so bad that I haven't ever made it public. ha ha!

Anyway, enjoy your TV watching. You deserve it! Too bad you can't watch it on the train....

:), Jill

Well Hi there blog stranger...I have missed your blogs but completey understand why you haven't posted any. You should really file a complaint at that place you call work that gives you a paycheck every week!!

How dare they do that to you! Not nice!

I think the TV would have won for me too... but Im sad you only get 30 min of tv time... I mean thats not alot of shows you can dedicate yourself to!!

Gotta love those firewalls... :-) Hope all is well! I've missed reading everyone's blogs, but sometimes Facebook is a little easier! How was the birthday party?

ditto here, Alli!! I miss blogging and getting all my random jumblyness out! Oh well. Sleep is more important! Well, not that I've been going to bed early... anyway, that's so funny about the recruiting job having down time b/c that is exactly how Erik was. It was so nice when he could work from home. Anyway, sorry about your computer time!!

Alli- where are you?? We miss you----come back!!
