Home Is Where The Internet Is

August 29, 2007

Coming soon to a blog near you.

First, I need to scan – no joke – some 900 e-mails. And, wash nine days of RV stink from my body, and try to get the last grains of sand out of various Wonderbaby crevices.

In the meantime: WHAT’D I MISS???

Nine days of NO internet, no newspapers, no television, and did I say NO INTERNET? I can’t possibly catch up, so, you know, if you could maybe lend a girl a hand and fill me in? Maybe leave a link or two in the comments to posts that I should catch? (Yes, you can leave your own, or somebody else’s, or whatever – just tell me what to read – I can’t bear to open Bloglines or Google Reader, lest these cause my laptop to give up and die and/or my brain to explode. HELP.)

    Welcome home!

    Miscellaneous-Mum August 29, 2007 at 4:59 pm

    Welcome home! I felt just the same as you – if you read blogrhet, you’ll see why :)

    Lara August 29, 2007 at 5:12 pm

    i gave you an award for being nice in this post. but then sandra wrote about it and made me feel all bad because apparently “nice” is a boring adjective. so instead, let’s assume i meant “kick ass, but in a really sweet way so that she makes everyone feel warm and fuzzy inside.”

    yeah, where’s an award for that?

    Phoenix August 29, 2007 at 5:40 pm

    Nothing at my place for sure. But here’s a few good links.

    I’m going to try to link it, we’ll see if it works. I apologize if it doesn’t work.

    It’s been a bit slow, so give it a few days and I’m sure you’ll catch up. Glad you’re back, although the peeps you left behind did a great job. You may be out of booze though.

    Kyla August 29, 2007 at 5:49 pm

    Welcome home. The neighborhood isn’t the same without you.

    There a wee something for you over at my place. Once you trudge through the one million posts waiting for you in Bloglines. ;)

    Erin - ExpectingExecutive August 29, 2007 at 6:12 pm

    Welcome back! Take your time and make sure you knock back a shot or two before going through all of the great posts and comments made on your blog during your “vacation”. You may want to check your jewelry box and make sure all of your gems are properly accounted for! LOL!

    we missed you, sister. but your house was well cared for in your absence.

    I’ve got some Burning Man and toddler transgender discussions over my way, maybe a homeless deal or two too (gotta keep it real)

    b*babbler August 29, 2007 at 8:09 pm

    Welcome back! You’ve been missed ’round these here parts!

    I’m sure you’ve already heard, but the BIG news?

    Madame M. August 29, 2007 at 8:19 pm

    Welcome back and beware of senators tapping you on the foot in the restroom!

    motherbumper August 29, 2007 at 8:35 pm

    Do what I do and just read the Hollywood gossip and to get all caught up with the real news.

    As for the real REAL news, all is well in blogeritaville. b*babbler beat me to it – the baby was born and all is well.

    I can’t wait to hear the stories.

    slouching mom August 29, 2007 at 8:54 pm

    Well, let’s see. Jenn’s (Serving the Queens) scare was just a scare — her lump was benign. That’s news!

    And…many bloggers I read are desperate for their kids to go back to school or are breathing a sigh of relief because their kids are already back in school. There’s a lot of talk (writing) about school/preschool/daycare.

    Welcome back.

    Lori at Spinning Yellow August 29, 2007 at 9:02 pm

    I agree with SM, mostly those of us with school age kids who are all my baby is going to school or I can’t wait ’till the kids are in school they’re driving me crazy! Kinda slow, although I did enjoy the Notes from the Trenches thing which I had stumbled across earlier.
    And I wanted to pass you the Nice Matters thing, too, but you were already recognized.
    Welcome back!

    crazymumma August 29, 2007 at 9:06 pm

    Sounds like you had a gas!

    Nothing truly unusual chez crazymumma. Still moody. My Personal Trainer is getting married. But I’m ok with that.

    really.

    can hardly wait to hear more about your holiday…

    Liz August 29, 2007 at 9:45 pm

    welcome home! hope it was a wonderful family trip, can’t wait to read all about it!

    mom2amara August 29, 2007 at 10:38 pm

    Great to have you back! Welcome home!

    Jenn August 29, 2007 at 11:30 pm

    welcome back :)

    you know that little button in the Google Reader that says “mark all as read”? yeah… there’s a twinge of guilt when you use it, but after so long gone, there is just a bit of a rush too. every now and then, when the sand in the crevices is more important than the laptop, it’s just so worth it.

    pinks & Blues Girls August 29, 2007 at 11:35 pm

    My head is spinning Linda Blair style at the thought of no internet.

    Hope you had a nice trip, RV stink and all!

    The Estrogen Files August 30, 2007 at 12:08 am

    Thank God you’re back. I was having withdrawal. Not that the blog sitters were bad, mind you. Just that nothing compares to HBM!

    Jen M. August 30, 2007 at 12:12 am

    Nine days! Congrats! It does us good to unplug. I am no help on which posts to catch, since I am hopelessly in love with most of the blogs I read, so you probably don’t want my “short” list – which isn’t very short at all. Welcome back.

    my minivan is faster than yours August 30, 2007 at 12:13 am

    Welcome home!

    Over at my place we’re discussing how funny my NICU experience was with my preemie.

    What neonatal intensive care units aren’t hilarious?!

    Glad you’re back :-)

    Tracey August 30, 2007 at 1:39 am

    Welcome Home! Glad you returned safely, and hopefully had a good time. Just waiting to hear your stories…

    Karen Rani August 30, 2007 at 8:10 am

    You only missed one dang thing: a tour of my house, videoblogged by me, while into “Mommy’s Juice Box.”
    And no, I don’t normally drink wine from a box, but it was ON SALE AT LOBLAWS!
    Welcome back lady!

    mamatulip August 30, 2007 at 8:19 am

    Didn’t miss much from me…just the story about how Dave showed his mom and stepfather how his new Digital Video Recorder worked and a steamy, action-packed porno popping up on the screen.

    Welcome home!

    Mrs. Chicky August 30, 2007 at 9:16 am

    Welcome back, lady. You were missed.

    and, um, i think I forgot to water your plants.

    9 days.. How'd you do it:) haha

    Lady M August 30, 2007 at 10:37 am

    Welcome back! I’d never have made it nine days. They would have found me begging wireless at Starbucks.

    nomotherearth August 30, 2007 at 11:14 am

    Loved the blog-sitters and all, but we missed YOU! Welcome back.

    SuzanneSays... August 30, 2007 at 11:30 am

    I concur – the blog-sitters were great, but nothing compares to HBM. Glad you’re back and can’t wait to hear 9 days in an RV, HBM-style!

    Her Bad Mother August 30, 2007 at 12:27 pm

    With great difficulty!

    TB August 30, 2007 at 12:32 pm

    Can’t wait to hear how it went as we’ll be doing an RV road trip vacation with Myles next June.

    Lawyer Mama August 30, 2007 at 12:38 pm

    Welcome back, babe!

    mcewen August 30, 2007 at 1:51 pm

    I beat you! 20 days in the rain in England AND no internet.
    Cheers

    Delilah August 30, 2007 at 2:05 pm

    Welcome home! I’m new around here and have been enjoying your blog. Always get a good laugh reading about your adventures. Can’t wait to hear all about the trip!

    welcome home

    BOSSY August 30, 2007 at 2:24 pm

    Item One: If Owen Wilson is in the crapper than we’re all sunk. Item Two: Come on over to Bossy’s place to see what thirteen things her kitchen has in common with Great Kitchen Designs (not.)

    Welcome back, kid.

    Amy Jo August 30, 2007 at 2:59 pm

    Welcome back! I’m afraid of my google reader if I miss two days, so nine would pretty much blow my mind.

    Oh, and I had a baby!

    wordgirl August 30, 2007 at 5:42 pm

    Welcome home! I’ve been a little scarce around the blogs lately, but I did manage to post an interesting tidbit about Oprah that’s making the rounds.

    ewe are here August 30, 2007 at 5:44 pm

    Welcome home!

    Christina August 30, 2007 at 5:52 pm

    Welcome back! Let’s see, what’s new? I had a particularly awful, ready-to-quit parenting moment with Cordy last Friday. I’m still getting over it.

    That’s about it.

    Christine August 30, 2007 at 7:58 pm

    while you were gone i won the Nobel prize in literature. really.

    m August 30, 2007 at 8:49 pm

    Welcome back! I’d suggest checking out Sweet Juniper and Sweetsalty, because they always rock.

    Also, if you have any stroller advice, stop by mine.

    Fairly Odd Mother August 30, 2007 at 9:30 pm

    Welcome back!!! Don’t worry about checking anything—keep yourself on vacation time as long as possible.

    moosh in indy. August 30, 2007 at 11:32 pm

    I deleted my blog, twice. On accident.
    It’s back now.
    I shouldn’t be given such responsibility.
    Welcome home, good luck getting the syrup smell out of everything.

    Elizabeth August 31, 2007 at 1:11 am

    Your blog was in very good hands while you were gone, but I’m glad you’re back! I celebrated my Two Year Blogging Anniversary a few days ago, that’s about it.

    Emily August 31, 2007 at 2:07 am

    Don’t know if you’ve been following, but I had one post that was the beginning of the end…

    Glad you’re back.

    later gaiter August 31, 2007 at 12:21 pm

    my husband just got some device from Rogers (in Toronto) where you plug it into an outlet and voila, wireless! Not sure if this is good or bad that now he (we) can go online from ANYWHERE. Even the car. Too much? Perhaps…

    Her Bad Mother August 31, 2007 at 12:24 pm

    Gaiter – we actually have one of those, which we brought along, but the one time we were in reach of a wireless network the plug wasn’t working. Which, you know, sucked.

    dana August 31, 2007 at 2:51 pm

    Awesome move poster, HBM. I’d love to see that flick! :)

    Veronica Mitchell August 31, 2007 at 4:05 pm

    Blog Antagonist reposted her Funeral Parts I-V. It’s definitely worth a read.

    Otherwise, here are a few of my recent favorites.
