This week I have stayed up way too late watching the Olympics and tweeting about it. Yes, I know I can watch it online or even TiVo for watching during waking hours, but I just can’t pull myself away. Yes, yes I know I too protest China’s human rights policy but love watching the athletes go for the gold! This while I have been ramping up my running miles while trying not to re-injure my ITB, tweaking workouts and delivering the goods for clients. Needless to say the scales (ooh speaking of scales I should weigh myself) have become a bit unbalanced, so I need to pause real time and reconnect online and off.
So today, I’m taking a blog break. I need to go visit with friends and catch up on posts. Rogue Ink and Write From Home are both back online. Seriously the blogsophere was not the same without these two talented bloggers. New friends await on Facebook and Twitter. If you’re in any of those places today, come hang,okay? I am also going to spend some face to face time (you know where you talk with a person and not an avatar) with one of my young nephews. I’ll be back tomorrow and hope you’ll join me! Go forth and have adventures… and be sure to come back and share!

Hey everyone sorry for the long delay in responding. I hit the pause button and then got paused when the wordpress upgrade ate my blog. Good thing I was sufficiently chilled or this could have been a very stressful weekend! 😉
@Amy, back and twittering! I am so glad!!
@Nik, I am so glad that you are up and feeling better! Looking forward to great times and great tweets! 🙂
@Ulla, oh your down time sounds so inviting. Food and friends, definitely on my Top 5 list. Kudos to you for totally living a full and rich life! 🙂

Congratulations, Karen, for hitting the pause button! I also had some face-to-face time this week and I enjoyed it very much, having coffee together and a Danish breakfast (at lunch-time), or spending a nice evening eating sweet dumplings and drinking one or two glasses of red wine, exchanging experiences, encouraging another. Have a great time!

Thank you for your kind comments and thoughts, they’re much appreciated. I’m glad to see you building up the miles on the road (or at least the treadmill) a bit as well.
I’m looking forward to spending more time reading your blog. Have fun hanging with your nephew!
All the best,
Woo hoo. I’m back. (Yes.) 😉
