I'm still alive!

Good morning! I just realized that I have been incredibly non-existent with blogging lately!

My excuse? 2012 has been off to kind of a blah start. I've had a lot of career changes over the past few months. Working 14 hour days 4-5 days/week has gotten the best of me. And when I'm not at work, I'm stressing out about it and replaying the events from my day in my head.

But things are bound to get better! I shouldn't be working this many hours. I'm not a doctor. Those kind of hours are for physicans..not nurses! ;)

Besides spending countless hours in a precious days off have been spent cleaning, cooking, gardening, and running! Weather has been amazing in SW Arizona. In fact, on Sunday I spend an hour laying by the pool, reading a book, drinking Sangria in 77 degree weather!

In the kitchen.....I've been on a thai-food/Indian food kick lately. I've whipped up some delicious curries, and other good stuff!

Ryan & I have also gotten an interest in desert plants. After our struggle with drought last summer with my pentunias and daisies -- I said "to hell" with traditional plants...

A blog post soon to come on what I've learned about the peculiarity of desert plants & cacti!

I hope all is well with my few readers! Also hoping to be more present here in the next few months!

So happy to see your back online! I keep checking every day and am so glad you found a few minutes to blog! You've had a busy, busy month, and I know it has been more than stressful, too. Hang in there! You are lucky to be able to bask in the sun!

Cool, Can't wait for your green thumb post. We wouldn't mind a curry recipe either :)

Yes, share your curry recipe! I am all about indian recipes. :)

I hope things quiet down for you soon. Those hours sound horrid. Makes me think back on my Target days... Eeks. Not fun. I hope you can live a more balanced life soon!!!
