I Think That Hiatus Was Long Enough, Don't You?

I know, I know, I missed a blogfest.

I was supposed to write an entry for the It's the Muse-ic Writing Blogfest yesterday, June 18, but didn't. I remembered last week, then forgot about it, then remembered but didn't have time to type up anything resembling suitable. My apologies--I made an obligation and failed to meet it.


You may have also noticed I haven't blogged since Thursday. I still have to reply to your comments from Tuesday, and haven't commented anywhere in three days.

Er, I suppose it's obvious I have some catching up to do, don't I?

Good thing I'm pretty sure I'll have time tomorrow, now that the tests are over and recital is done and things are pretty much back to normal.

As for that, my dance recital yesterday went well, and I FINISHED ALL MY TESTS TODAY.


No, I didn't fail any of them. Which I was afraid I might. In fact, I'm pretty happy with my scores.


I was also tagged and awarded, (thank you! You bloggers are awesome) and I'll acknowledge those later.


And finally, Happy Father's Day!

To all the dads in the world: have a great day!

I think everyone will forgive you. You sounded like you were up to your ears. I love the prairie dog.

Heather said...

Rob-bear said...

Glad to see you back. Congratulations on the dance recital and the test marks! (That makes your disappearance — your hiatus — truly worthwhile.)

What happens next?

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Congrats on finishing the tests. Sometimes there are just too many things to keep up with. Inevitable that some would fall through the cracks.

Sarah Pearson said...

Congratulations on getting through your tests, and I'm so glad the recital went well!

Congrats on the tests! And great to have you back.

Tony Benson said...

Congrats on the tests. I bet it's great to get them finished :-)

Don't feel under pressure with the blog. You have a great blog and nobody will blame you for having other demands on your time.

Good to see you back.

Jai Joshi said...

Good to see you, Golden Eagle. I've been on partial hiatus myself for god knows how many days so I totally understand.

Congratulations on the tests being over and I hope the dance recital went well!


Tessa Conte said...

Congrats on the tests! Don't worry about the blogfest.

Susan Fields said...

Congrats on the recital and the tests - I'm so glad to hear all went well!

Glad you're back! Congrats on passing your tests and completing your recital. I chickened out at the one recital I've ever had, and thus my piano career never began ;)

nutschell said...

Welcome back! I think i might need a hiatus myself. After April's A_Z adn this months England Trip series, I need a little break. :D Congratulations on finishing your tests though and on a great dance recital!

Nicki Elson said...

Congrats on a good recital and doing well on your tests! Do not feel guilty for a second if Bloggyland has to get set aside for a while---you've got your priorities straight. It's nice to see you're back though. ;)

Michael Di Gesu said...

We are all so proud of you Golden... An amazing recital and excellent grades.... who can ask for more?

We all have our time restraints so please don't feel guilty. We know you swoop onto our blogs at some point, like you did today.

Now it's time to take a deep breath a relax a bit. You deserve it!

Lynda R Young said...

congrats for finishing tests and recitals :)

Beth said...

Congratulations on the recital and tests being finished. What a relief!

Canyon Girl said...

Great about the recital and I'm sure everyone who visits your blog understands how busy a young person is this time of the year. I'm glad all your tests went OK and I have a hard time believing you would fail at anything.

laughingwolf said...

grats on all the good stuff, ge!

as for the rest, life happens... we either deal with it, or opt out... i prefer the former.... :O

Jayne said...

Congrats on finishing your tests! And no worries for being absent - that's the way blogging goes sometimes, no need to apologise! I'm sure everyone here totally understands where you are coming from. :)

The Golden Eagle said...

Laila: Thanks. :)

Glad you liked the pic!

Su: Thank you!

Trisha: Thanks!

They're so easy to forget, unless there's some kind of alert/reminder. :P

Heather: Thank you! :)

Rob-bear: Thanks!

Now, I get back into the regular posting swing. I haven't done a book review in weeks, and I've got ideas for Thursday posts.

Alex: I'm not so sure about that . . .

Thank you!

Misha: I actually didn't mind taking the tests--it was the worry over the material I didn't like. I hadn't taken any tests before that. (I've always been homeschooled, and the district where we used to live didn't require tests.)

Colene: Thank you! :D

Madeline: Thanks!

It was a lot of fun. :)

Charles: Thank you.

I suppose . . . I still feel bad about not blogging over much of the past week and missing that blogfest.

Sarah: Thanks! :)

Old Kitty: Thank you so much! :D

I thought some readers might like the hamster. ;)

Samantha: Thank you!

Mary: Thanks!

Misha: Thanks! :D

The Golden Eagle said...

Richard: Thank you--I try to do what I can, at any rate.

Alleged: LOL. Yes, I can; I had been worried about those tests!

Nancy: Thank you!

I'm planning to have some fun this summer. :)

Simon: Thanks!

It's great to be back.

Tony: Thank you! It is--although, they were a challenge, and in that sense I miss them. :P

I really wish I hadn't missed that blogfest, though; I will try not to miss another!

Jai: Good to see you, too, Jai! :)

It did! And I had a lot of fun in the process. :D

Tessa: Thank you!

Susan: Thanks. :)

Madison: Thank you. Mine was actually a dance recital--I've only been through one piano recital, but that was worrying experience enough!

Nutschell: Thanks!

I loved your England Trip Series; it was so much fun to see all the pictures and learn about the sites you visited! :)

Thank you!

Nicki: Thank you!

I'm glad to get back to the regular schedule of blogging; I miss the Internet when I'm not around it for too long. LOL.

Michael: Not me! I'm happy with the way the week went. :)


Lynda: Thank you. :)

Beth: It is a relief to be done with both!

Canyon Girl: It's a change from the usual easy schedule; being homeschooled usually leaves me more free time.

I'm no so confident about not failing; I haven't done so well on some problems thrown at me. :P But thank you for the support!

Laughingwolf: Thank you! :)

Seems to me like it's often the better option.

Jayne: Thank you!

I still feel guilty about it--I've never missed something like a blogfest before, even if I was away from the computer for long.

Madeleine said...

Welcome back. It's good to have a blog break and refresh yourself. Congrats on completeing the tests. Love the rodent pic :O)
