Going "off-radar" is sometimes healthy...

In this day and age it seems we all have so many ways to be "connected" - now I may have the oldest phone on the planet but some of you have phones that are as fancy as my laptop/phone/gps/the iPod I don't actually have/best friend rolled into one. This is all well and good... but sometimes, well frankly sometimes I need a break.
I know, my artistic talent knows no bounds...

So, I dropped off the edge of the earth... or at least the radar screen...
Sometimes I like to listen - you know, to the world around me.

Which means that the OTHER world around me (that's you guys) gets a little neglected... sorry! it's just the truth peeps - I apparently can't be all things to all people no matter how hard I try!

So if you've missed my witty comments on your blog posts - I formally apologize...

If you thought that my absence was indicative of the fact that I keeled over and died then why on earth did you not call the authorities... y'know, in this case being... ummm... Mark Zuckerberg? I'm pretty sure he'd be able to find me before the local cops... although it's not hard, it's not like I'm hiding out in a fancy mansion in Pakistan or anything...

Luckily this week signifies the end of soccer season... which will return my Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays to normal...

define "normal" for me again wouldya?

OH! and I have a giveaway to finalize - because I have a Freschetta Pizza Coupon to mail off to Heather B (who is way off across the ocean and thus not eligible for the Container set)... Sorry Heather - but I think that you will be happy when you find that the Containers are now going to Laura... who I'm sure will treat them quite well in your absence.

I thank you... Freschetta thanks you... Random.org thanks you... ummm... yeah - we're a grateful bunch of people around here!

and now if you REALLY want to try it I'll give you a hint - hurry, because most of the boxes right now have a mail-in rebate which means you ALL get pizza for free. Free is my favorite price!

y'wanna know what I learned while "listening" yesterday at the park during soccer practice... I learned that SOME people have step-sons who don't know that their Dad isn't really their Dad yet and that SOME people should probably not have such loud conversations in a public place...  just sayin'

hey, what can I say...  the sounds of nature were probably more soothing, but the soap opera was happening about 5 feet away...  what's a girl supposed to do?

I figure when people go missing for a bit they have a pretty darn good reason!

Sometimes dropping off the radar is such a great experience! Anytime I go out of town, I always turn my phone off cuz I REALLY want to be out of town completely.

It is good to get a break now and then -- but I was going to call and complain --um I mean check on you today. I hope life feels happy normal without soccer.

I love your creative "Off the radar" picture! Very funny! Sometimes life gets busy. And sometimes we get blogger's block. And sometimes we get complaints for not being on the radar! :)

Haha! You are quite funny indeed. I have been off radar for quite some time and am really starting to enjoy it although I did schedule about 4 blog posts today which is soooo unlike me lately!

Congratulations on the end of soccer season. I am pretty much ecstatic to know my soccer days are over.

It sounds like that a break from the ratrace is needed. If you are getting into soccer.........isn't your life pretty much over then?
I don't know how moms keep up with everything.

Hope you are well and your allergies are being nice to you.

Glad you are back even if it is for a little while....

Hi Tonya,

Sorry for contacting you through your comments section but I couldn't find an email address on your blog. I'm contacting you because I'm trying to get the word out about my new site: www.MommyGiggles.com.

Mommy Giggles is a site where moms submit funny pictures to share with other moms to get a giggle out of. They can either be pictures of their kids or of other hilarious “mommy moments”

I am contacting you to see if you have a funny picture that I could post – we would of course give you the credit, and also post your blog (if you want). There is also a $25 Amazon Gift card drawing to everyone who submits a photo each month.

I would also appreciate if you could spread the word about Mommy Giggles to other moms too!

Hope you will get a “giggle” out of the site.

Warmest Regards,

Heather Matthews
