Unplugged, Partially Recharged

It's been like a blog power outage around here the past week+.  I was at the BlogHer conference, then Chris ripped apart our kitchen sink and cabinets in anticipation of the appliances that will be arriving as part of the Maytag Dependable Kitchen Moms campaign,
and then we headed to Bethany Beach for our usual summer getaway.
Hence I haven't had much time for writing, though my camera certainly filled in the gaps.  I sometimes forget how much I love photography, or more accurately, I forget to make time for it.  And forget to have my camera on hand during ordinary moments.
This week we return back to the routine, which is always a hard adjustment.  As the old adage goes, I need a vacation from vacation.  It was nice being mostly unplugged the last week or so, but now I'm overwhelmed with emails, posts that are due, and general household and childcare responsibilities again.

However it was great to recharge a little and step away from the house, and to reconnect with Chris especially, since most of his weekdays are spent at work.

How are you recharging this summer?  Or savoring the last weeks of it?


  1. I hear ya! We just got back from our last camping trip of the summer. And I'm feeling pretty overwhelmed already with playing "ketchup". Looks like your getaway was well worth it though! A week away would be bliss I think (:

  2. BlogHer completely exhausted me, so I have spent the past week keeping a low profile and sleeping in, heh. But now I'm getting back into the swing of things hardcore, because school starts in two weeks, so we all need to get back on our normal "first shift" sleeping/working schedules.

    Nice photos, by the way! I hope you're enjoying what's left of your summer. :)

    P.S. We met at BlogHer '12 at some point because I have your business card, which is why I dropped by your blog tonight - to say hello. :)

  3. Oh my goodness! Your kitchen! I'm glad you got some downtime together at the beach, at least...

  4. Well hey, unplugging and recharging is definitely needed every now and again and it's nice to see you guys got to go on vacation!

    Although I do understand the overwhelm of coming back-Hopefully you can get caught up soon :)


I'm a good listener...comment away!
