2011 Has Not Been Boring

Hello Blogging World,

Boy, it has been a long time! I won't say that I have been too busy to blog- because everyone is busy- but man 2011 has not been boring. In fact, the first three weeks of January have been absolutely crazy.

First, (as you all probably know) I had a family member pass away, then I had some weird pain/pressure on my right side that got so bad I went to Urgent Care but after a couple of ultrasounds and few blood tests found out that I am fine (woo hoo) and that I probably just had a small ovarian cyst or something- phew!

After all this happened I thought (and was hoping) things were going to slow down a bit but then I decided it is DEFINITELY time for me to find my own place (long, boring story) so I have been on a mad hunt looking for an apartment (or an open room) in San Francisco... and to top it off I got the stomach flu this past weekend, booo!

BUT this morning I woke up and decided that enough is enough, no more excuses! So here I am, posting on my blog, yay!

I do think it was good that I took some time off though. In fact, I was reading a bunch of blogs the other day and found a quote in a post that said, "You can do it all, just not at the same time". How great is that??? I think sometimes we, especially women, feel the need to do it all and be "superhuman", but no one can live like that all the time!

Is there anything you guys let fall to the wayside when you are really busy? Have you ever felt like you have to do it all?
