Dropping the Ball…
I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry!

I’m a mess… more of a mess than usual I mean. *snork* I haven’t been posting as much on here. I haven’t shared my drama in a Frantic Friday post since last August! My Court of Reviews has stepped into the gap recently and helped with my lack of focus. (Thank you guys!) Oh! If you’ve sent me an email in the past… oh
10 weeks or so – does 2.5 months sound better? I think so. *nods* So scratch that! In the last 2.5 months I’ve barely answered emails. Most of them, (around 98%), are still waiting for me to get my head on straight. But I just can’t seem to… stop wobbling. yet.
I’m sorry. I know I have dropped the ball on my blog- and I adore The Book Tart and all my bookie friends! But…. Gahhh!
My Bookstore Beau is also Army Guy and he told me right before Christmas that he was being deployed. I cried. We just found out a few weeks ago that he will be leaving March 9th-ish. I AM going to put on my big girl panties and do this thing. I’m going to bake cookies and send care packages to Afghanistan and read romance and I will DEAL. *nods* I will. Positive thinking can help right?
I need to find a balance between life, love and the pursuit of happiness. 🙂 The Book Tart has been a dream of mine for a few years and finally it’s up. It’s still a work in progress… the database isn’t working right now, ( it’s being fixed!) I’ve met so many lovely friends who share my obsession with fiction. I don’t want to give this up. Talking about books… it’s my happy place. 🙂 So I’m not quitting.
Spilling my guts here now to try to explain. I’ve never had a beau before. *blush* yep. Never. I was waiting for that someone to give me butterflies… And I finally stopped looking. That’s when Bookstore Beau came up to me in a B&N, said hi and gave me his number. He’s my lobster. I love him. I’ve had a hard time juggling him into my life though and not dropping other balls. He’s very proud of my blogging/vlogging and encourages me to make time, except I get distracted more easily now. 😛 The blog hasn’t been in rotation quite as much. While he’s deployed I’m going to try to find balance for all the parts of my life…
I adore everyone who visits my little corner of the web and if ya’ll have any tips or stories about handling long distance relationships or balancing love and life… or even a silly story to distract me- shiny! I would really appreciate the help. I’m a newbie at this circus act and need all the help I can get.

PS. Hopefully next week I can share engagement pictures! I’m trying to get permission from the Barnes and Noble store that we met in to have our photo shoot there. 😉
