Hi! I'm back from my blogging break. (Kinda, sorta, maybe.)

I mean I'm sitting here at my computer typing a blog post.  That must mean I'm back, right?

But how much of me is back?
All of me?  Half of me?  A quarter of me? 
(Ugh.  That's disgusting.  Let's keep things together here, shall we?  All this quartering and half-ing is giving me the creeps.) 
I don't care.  I'm too tired to care.  Maybe after all there's really only an eighth of me here.
Maybe after all you're a complete nut! 
*shrug*  Possibly.  But who cares?  What's the point of having a strong intellect if you're too tired to use it?
You, ma'am, need to get more sleep!
*yawn*  What good will that do?  I'll only get tired again.  Besides all the fun things happen at night.  I can't possibly go to bed early when fun things are happening.
You're pathetic.  Did you have something to say or did you just come here to whine about how tired you are?

I most certainly did have something to say!  What do you take me for?  I came here to say hi to my friends because I miss them.  *sniff* *sob*

Oh stop.  I can't stand emotional people.

I can't help it.  It's the truth.  I miss my friends.  I miss our conversations.  I want to be back in the swing of things, blogging regularly, keeping up with everyone, but... 

I don't know if I can do it.

I've just been so tired lately.

So tired.

Well, I have a suggestion for you.


Put off your blogging and your whining till another day.


I have to admit, bed does sound rather nice right now.  *silly, exhausted grin*

*rolls eyes*   I should think so. 

But wait!  *tries desperately to keep eyes open*  I need to give some sort of update on what I've been doing...or something...or...I don't know.  This is such a pointless post otherwise.

You're telling me.

Give me a minute.  I'll think of something.  Oh yes.  I started my new job.  I'm two days in and...yeah.  That's part of the reason why I'm so tired.  (But mostly it's because she never goes to bed on time.)  A-hem.  I mean it's not like it's hard physical labor or anything but still it's a lot of new stuff to learn and learning new stuff can be exhausting.  (Not to mention the fact that I had to get up at 6:00 am this morning.)  I'm going in to work again tomorrow and Saturday and Sunday and...what's that?  A pillow?  I WANT A PILLOW!  Ohhh, for a soft, fluffy, comfortable pillow.  Somebody please give me a pillow on which to rest my weary head!

(Oh good grief.  She's really losing it, folks.) 
That's it.  You're going to bed even if I have to drag you there!
No, no, wait!  I didn't tell them about how I went car shopping this afternoon...

Big whoop.  You didn't even find anything.  Wait until you find a car and then tell them about it.  (Though I don't know why anyone would care to hear about such boring details.)

But there was more to it than that.  I was going to explain how all that driving around this afternoon made me even more tired.

You did come here just to whine about how tired you are.  This is beyond belief. 

I don't whine.  I gripe.

Oooh.  I see.  And that makes all the difference.  Yes.  Griping is much better than whining.  Everybody knows that.
Go to bed.  Please.

Fine.  I will.  Good-night.
Good-night.  (If it is a good night.  Which I doubt.)  (Really, I'm beginning to think I won't get a wink of sleep tonight.  Who could with a loony in the house?)
I heard that.
That's okay.  I don't mind.
P.S.  (From the sensible Miss March who's still alive here somewhere)  Hello dear friends!  I've missed you!  I hope all's well with you (and that you're taking better care of your mental health than I am, heehee.)  What's been happening in your lives lately?  Do tell!  :D
(Also, Natalie should never have shown me that website full of Emma screen caps.  I'm afraid I'm going to be using them far too often.)


  1. YAY! I was thoroughly ready for a post from you today. :D

    This was exactly what I felt like too, hehe. Also, I think we're beginning to realize that the first voice in your head is Emma Woodhouse and the second one is Mr. Knightley, haha. ;D

    As to what I've been doing... well, a whole bunch of stuff. I've been working on school and a Business course, I've been helping my elder brother and his fiancee with planning their wedding and house inspections (went to my first 2 ever house inspections this week! :P), I've gone to the airport a lot of times within the last few months... I've had a lot of social events on, including volunteering as a steward for the horses at a local show last weekend, for 2 days, and then helping pull everything down on the 3rd day, and sleeping over for a couple nights at somefriends' house... sleep hasn't been too bad, but I've been consuming a lot more coffee, sugar and junk food lately than I normally do. :P

    Glad to hear you're back!! And that your job is going quite well! ( I would be interested in hearing more details on that if you ever care to share. ;))
    ~Miss Meg

    1. Aww. Yippee! That's the best when someone is actually in the mood for my ramblings! ;D Thanks, Miss Meg! :)

      Heehee. Mr. Knightley and Emma? You just might have a point there. ;)

      OH MY GOODNESS, GIRL!! You make me sound like a lazy good-for-nothing!! How do you manage to do all that? You're amazing! :) That's so cool that you get to help with the wedding planning. By the way, how's that going? I hope things are coming together smoothly for all of you. Is it going be a large wedding or a small wedding?

      Thanks! I'm sure you'll probably hear more about the job eventually. There's bound to be some good stories to share once I've been there a little longer. :)

      ~Miss March

    2. Haha, well, I don't exactly CHOOSE to do all that - I'm forced into it most times. ;) But don't worry, I have my lazy days, just like everyone else!! Well, I help out a little with the wedding planning (mostly because my siblings and I are in the bridal party, and also because the two lovebirds like to hear everyone's opinions), and it is going smoothly for them, yes! It's only a small wedding. :)

      ~Miss Meg

    3. Haha. I can understand that. ;) I think that's wonderful that the lovebirds want you all to be involved. It's definitely nice as a sibling to know what's going on. :) I'm glad it's all going smoothly. And small weddings are awesome!! :D

  2. HAHA you found the screen-cap website. I LOVE THAT WEBSITE.

    1. Isn't it great though? There's just SO many good screen-caps to choose from!! I could waste a lot of time on that website I think. :)

  3. Hello Miss March!
    I'm so happy to see you're back! How was your trip (I think I already know the answer)?

    I know what you mean about being so tired! I am tired all the time!! And sleeping doesn't seem to help. :)

    Oh, car shopping, I do what to hear more about that! (Mr. Smart Aleck, you are now proved wrong!)

    Get lots of sleep dear, I'll talk to you later!

    1. Hello MovieCritic!!

      It's so good to hear from you! I'm happy to be back too. :) As to my trip, it was awesome!!! I had SO much fun! :D

      Aww. Poor MovieCritic. At least we can sympathize with each other since we both know how it feels!! *hugs*

      Really? Well maybe I'll have to write more about that then. Thanks for your vote in favor of the subject. :) (Did you hear that, Mr. Smart Aleck? You were wrong! Put that in your pipe and smoke it. ;) "But I haven't got a pipe, ma'am." Whatever.)

      Thank you! And you get lots of sleep, too, if you can! Thanks so much for your comment, dear. :)

  4. You're back!! Yay!!

    I'v been doing A GREAT DEAL of gardening, and it's far FAR to hot to be gardening at all. And I still have three more rows left to turn :( *sob*

    I'm tired all the time too, so don't feel bad! XD

    What is the screencap website called?!?! I can never find the Emma pics that I want *growls at google images*

    Glad to see you back Miss March!

    1. Thanks, Miss Woodhouse! :)

      Ohhh. You poor thing. That doesn't sound fun at all. :( I hope the weather cools down a bit for you. What sort of things do you grow in your garden? (By the way, you may not have been meaning to quote him, but I totally had Frank Churchill's voice in my head when you said it was "far too hot." Haha. ;))


      Here's the link to the website. (You'll be able find plenty of pictures now. ;))

      Thank you!! And thank you so much for your comment! :)

    2. Haha yes the weather is getting a little better. And yes, it's not the funnest thing to do :(.

      This year we are growing tomatoes, corn, peppers, squash, lettuce, watermelons, and eggplant. Whew! that was a long list :P!

      OH MY, I didn't even realize that I was quoting him haha XD XD!!

      Oooo I'm gonna LOVE this website! There's so many pictures!!! *jumps up and down* Thanks so much Miss March! :D

    3. Wow. That sounds like quite the garden! We used to have a garden when I was a kid. I don't remember what all we grew but I know we had corn and beans and carrots. (The carrots were my favorite!) What's your favorite vegetable?

      Heehee. Funny how that happens. ;)

      Oh, I knoooow! Isn't it so much fun though? A picture for every occasion! :D You are most welcome!

    4. Hmmm... my favorite is probably corn, carrots, or lettuce. I like too many XD. Except eggplant. Yuck XP

      Yes this website is great!! I'm gonna use pictures waaaaaaaay to much now XD

    5. Oh yes, corn! That's another of my favorite vegetables! Lettuce is good, too. When I was a kid I didn't like it at all, but as I've gotten older I've found it's not so bad. ;) I've never actually tried eggplant, but I have a feeling I'd like it just about as much as you do. ;P

      Haha. ;)

  5. Yay!!! You're back!!! *excuse me for my excitement*

    Loved this post Miss March!!

    It is good to have you back.

    1. Haha. No excuse necessary, my dear. I don't mind excitement AT ALL!! ;D

      Aw, I'm glad. Thanks, Rachel.

      And just thank you so much for your sweet comment!! It's good to be back! *hugs*

  6. Also, I love your background! Where did you get it? I can't seem to find good backgrounds.

    1. Thanks! I can't quite remember how I found it. But I probably googled something along the lines of "blog backgrounds old-fashioned flowers" or something like that.

  7. Hey! It's going good! :) Congrats on the new job, and I agree with light blue-you: get more sleep! ;)

    1. Yay! Glad to hear it! :) Haha. I took a nap yesterday. Does that count? (Of course then I stayed up till midnight last night but, shhh. Never mind about that. ;))

  8. I can't believe I missed this! This was amazing

  9. Wait? A website full of Emma 2009 screencaps?! I need to look this up. ;)

    I'm a bit late reading this post, but I'm glad that you're back, and I hope that all is going well with your new job! :)

    1. Yes! Isn't it wonderful? Here's the link for you:

      Thanks, Molly! Things are going pretty well so far. I hope all's well with you, too! :)

  10. This is outrageously late, but I have to comment just to let you know I really enjoyed this post and the appearance of Mr. Smart Aleck. ;D

    PS. Haha! Well, you made wonderful use of the Emma screencaps. I can't wait to see more. :D

    1. Late indeed. What do you mean by it?? :P Haha. Just kidding. I'm sure you had a good reason. :) I'm glad you enjoyed the post! <3

  11. Ha! Glad you're back (sort of...)!!!

    1. (Glad that I'm "sort of" back? Or "sort of" glad that I'm back? Hahaha. ;))

      Thanks, Kate. <3

    2. Glad that you were "sort of" back, of course!! Ha!!

  12. Good gracious, I relate so much to this. Well, perhaps not at this moment. But I have felt that way often.
    I know so what you mean about missing your blogging friends and conversations and such! When I took my (quite long) blogging break, I was kinda too busy to miss blogging, but as soon as I came back and started getting comments and talking to people again, I found I had missed it very much indeed!
    And you poor girl, going to bed so late. I'm sure *I* never go to bed late; I've gone to bed around midnight almost every night for the past couple of weeks! Tsk, tsk.
    How exciting about your new job! (Not so new anymore, I realize) What job is it again?
    And exciting again about car shopping!
    I rather enjoyed reading this, though perhaps I shouldn't have found such amusement in your discontent. :( :D
    Love you!

    1. Glad you can relate! :)

      Oh I know! Being in contact with one's friends is so special. The comments and everything mean so much!

      Do I detect a note of sarcasm in that statement? Haha. ;) (So you have the midnight problem, too, huh? Isn't it terrible though?)

      Working at a Christian retreat center. Front desk person. Checking in and checking out guests. Answering questions (if I know the answers, ha!) Getting them things they need. Basically, whatever I can do to make their stay there pleasant.

      Yup. And I found a car, too. (Mentioned that in one of my later posts.) It's been really nice having my own means of transportation. :)

      Ha. That's okay. It was meant to be amusing. I'm glad you enjoyed it! :D

      Love you, too!
