Lacing Up the Ol' Traveling Shoes

This weekend begins my travels. Please excuse me while I run down the street screaming and then vomit in excitement. 

*Moments pass*

Okay, that's all taken care of. 

So, I'm heading out. Which sadly means that my presence here is going to be limited. Particularly for the rest of this month, seeing as my internet access is going to be spotty. Well, that and I'm going to be real busy trying to befriend a whole passel of kangaroos. I'm assuming they run in passels, cause why not? If I was a kangaroo, I'd run in a passel. 

Then there's all the reading that needs to be done. I just downloaded a bunch of books. Had to wait until the week that I was leaving, because, let's face it. Had I gotten them any earlier, I would have read them already, thus defeating their purpose of being travel reading and illustrating my utter lack of will power. 

I'll be posting a bit more frequently during the rest of the summer, but I'll really be getting back to normal in the fall. 

Hope that all your summers are completely awesome and I look forward to catching up with all of you in June!

A Reflection, From A to Z

A very happy May 1 to you all! The new month is upon us, hopefully bringing flowers, sunshine and more consistent warm weather. This also means that I have survived my first A to Z Challenge.

* Cut to me running down the street high fiving confused passers-by.*

For anyone who came across it this month and is considering it for next year, I offer my highest recommendation.

First off, it's a great writing challenge. Coming up with something to say on every letter of the alphabet isn't always a walk in the park. Thank goodness for blankets and Scooby Doo or "Q" and "Z" would just be pictures of me scratching my head. Possibly with the letters written on my forehead...but still.

Secondly, I now have a whole slew of new blogs to follow. To all the folks who I've met through this, it's been a pleasure and I'm really looking forward to following all of you in the future.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm about to fall back into my alphabetically-blogging-induced coma.

See you all on the other side!
