So here I am, eleven days (11?!!??!?!?!?) into the shiny new year, and I’m just now getting around to writing an honest-to-goodness, real-life blog.
What’s that ya say, readers? “What’s Up With THAT?”
Well, I’ll tell you.
For starters, in case you missed it, Brian graduated about a month ago. Which means my man, in all his glory, has been home a LOT lately. That translates into…well…into this:
Pure. Unadulterated. Bliss.
There’s been lots of sleeping, lots of snuggling, and lots of laughing. We’ve been socializing, taking road trips, going to movies, watching a TON of Doctor Who reruns, and just basically enjoying each other’s company for the first time in practically three years.
If it hadn’t been for all the working in between, it would have almost been like a vacation.
That being said, all this extra-super-fun-time has put a serious damper on my desire to write. Not because I don’t want to, or because I don’t have things to write about, but because I’d just rather be snuggling with my honey on the couch whilst playing Mario on our new Wii-U.
(Brian assures me that this honeymoon phase will pass. I’m not so sure.)
(Meaning, the honeymoon phase with him, not the Mario brothers. Although they’re pretty adorable little plumbers. Mustaches and all.)
On top of all that quality time being spent, I’m also just getting over the monkey flu of death. It hit me like a ton of bricks a week ago today, and I spent at least 3 of the last 7 days totally sacked out in bed, unable to move much more than to blow my nose and beg weakly for more Sudafed.
After a week of nose-blowing, pill-popping, orange juice-drinking, and nap-taking, I think I’ve finally kicked the beastie’s butt. At least, I’m showered, dressed, and upright for the first time in days. That’s a major improvement. Trust me.
I crawled out of my cocoon of covers this morning just so I could get started on the new and improved Abby Gabs, all vamped up and ready for 2013! You’ll notice a new banner, a new button, and a new theme that runs throughout my social media outlets (including Twitter and Facebook.)
And that’s all fine and dandy.
But the addition to my blog that makes me the most excited???
The shiny new Pinterest button that joins my other social media links at the top of the page! How cute is that??? And now you can satisfy your deepest curiosity into what That Gabby Abby pins on a maniacal level daily basis. Because believe me when I say that I pin like a mad woman. It’s the truth, friends and neighbors.
So, dear reader, I hope you’ll accept my heartfelt apology in the late salutations. But in truth, 2013 really started for me today! So, in true Abby Gabs fashion, Happy 2013!!!
