Sunday Delight: Trying my Best

Happy Sunday everyone!  How was your week?  Anything good, great and amazing going on?  
I know maybe a month ago I said I was BACKK!!!  And you would start seeing more regular post from me.  I tried to make that happen.  I really did.  But there just was a PERFECT storm of activity in my life.  First, lack of motivation.  Yep!  I was not as motivated as I thought I was.  
Go figure.  Not the first time and more than likely not the last time.  
Second, I had my computer die an ugly death (as far as computers go).  
No nothing caught on fire.  There was no ambulance involved.  But I did take my computer to the tech hospital more than once.  ARGH! I'm stressed just remembering it.  Well, the end result was/is the new laptop I am tying this post on.  Yep!  I had to lay my old faithful to rest after 6 long and strong years together.  I am hoping the tech guy will be able to fix her so I can use her at home and the new one can be the work and travel laptop.  
Third and last one, I was busy!  I was just so busy I couldn't find time to sit down and blog like I wanted to.  Much less visit other blogs and read as much as I wanted to.  
So now I have a new laptop.  That means time to sit down and a blogging challenge called Blog Ahead (Hosted by Herding Cats and Burning Soup) to help me get my mo-jo back. 

Here and Now

Time: 4:00 am
Drinking: Hot Citrus and Lemon Grass Tea with Honey
Eating: Nothing yet.  Thinking about dinner
