It is May, people. And that is probably neither here nor there for most of you (except that it includes lots of roses), but for me it means insanity. The birthdays start on the second of the month and they don't stop until June rolls in. Throw in Mother's Day and a shower or two (baby or bridal, take your pick) and remember that all the summer wedding orders need to get made and mailed out and I'm sure you can see where this is going.
Normally I try to be pretty careful of getting overbooked - I'll even schedule blocks of time specifically for napping or reading whenever possible. But somehow I didn't realize quite how this month was shaping up and now I can't bear to drop anything. So I'm dropping you.
Just kidding. But I will be taking three day weekends for the rest of the month, in an attempt to bring a little sanity to my life. So you won't be seeing me here on Mondays (and if you do see me, go ahead and slap me, because I'm sure I'm supposed to be doing something else). Regular posting schedule will resume when things slow down a bit.
Hi - beautiful roses. I am your newest follower - I wandered over from The Littlest Things...ReplyDelete

take care!!!! miss you already! LOL (no, really I'm glad you're doing what you need to get done.)ReplyDelete
love the roses
My dear, I fully understand. Between April and June, there are something like eight birthdays. This is manageable.ReplyDelete
Last year, I had two wedding showers, a baby shower, convocation, and wedding planning. When July came, I didn't want cake. Which is saying a lot.
Best of luck with the insanity!
Drooling over those roses. Best of luck with the rest of crazy May :)ReplyDelete
My May and June is the same. I have birthdays every five days for a month. Ugh.ReplyDelete

I love roses when they are fully opened like that-so much prettier to me. Try not to get too overwhelmed!!!ReplyDelete
You have a beautiful assortment of roses. Take a long break! And don't be showing up here if you can be taking rest!ReplyDelete
Yes, for the love of gawd, focus on real life. We will huff and puff with impatience, but we can wait. And the roses from your rents are spectacular. Spectacular!ReplyDelete
