Oy!

Hello! Miss me? I don't even think anyone reads this here page anymore. I feel so horribly guilty because...well, because I SHOULD be reviewing. I've read a gazillion books and some deserve to be reviewed, but I haven't because I've been insanely busy.

I work retail (thankfully not face-to-face *icky shiver*) and we're in the midst of the holiday season. Oh joy. I think this is why I have such a hard time getting into the holiday spirit. I've got so much going and it's all not fun. Eh

But, I have been reading and reading and reading. And watching movies. And playing video games. In fact, I've been a busy little beaver.

I missed the fact that one of my favorite bloggers quit. I missed a lot of things. Man, do I feel guilty. *sigh*

99% of it is just...well, I've been going thru a lot. Too much work and not enough downtime is 99% of my problem. I'm emotionally and spiritually exhausted. I need a break from everything. I'm ignoring Facebook, I hardly ever Twitter and I'm basically cutting myself off from everything. It's not even being done on purpose...I just tend to step back when I've got too much going on and am feeling overwhelmed.

I dunno...maybe I'll quit this here blog and just review over on my other one...maybe. I've got a lot to think about over the next month. See if 2010 will start out fresh or end up being a complete rehash of 2009. Ugh!

I still stop by to see if you've made an appearance. It's good to see a new post here. I've seen 3 blogs close up shop in November...its depressing. I hope you keep this one open.

:o)

Oh honey I know how you feel. I've been reading a bunch but not reviewing either.

And the stepping back? Sometimes we just need to do that and look at what's important - we can't do all things and be everything to all people. Deep breaths - you're doing great. :)

Ok, just read your Claire Thompson comment over at Kris'. Whoa - Claire Thompson SO not a good first m/m read. *blinks wide eyed*

Probably something a bit less graphic would be a good start - I'd HIGHLY recommend Tigers and Devils by Sean Kennedy, which is far more about the romance than about the sex. Or something light and fun, like Bad Boys, Bad Boys by Mia Watts.
