Thank you!

(don't cats in boxes make you happy?)
I just wanted to take a minute to THANK everyone who reads Orchid Grey. I don't always get a chance to comment on all the blogs I would like to, or to thank everyone personally for their kind and sweet comments (If I could send you all flowers, I absolutely would!). So: THANK YOU! Thank you especially for sticking by me the past couple of weeks, which have been supremely stressful and busy for me.

As I'm sure most of you can agree with, blogging is a constant balancing act, as soon as I feel as though all my plates are balanced, someone hands me another one (is it possible I handed myself another one? yes.). See, I started a second (third? fourth?) job last week at a local coffee shop, and as much as I enjoy what I'm doing, I've had to yet again adjust my spinning plates. I doesn't help that it's beautiful outside and all I want to do is run through fields of wildflowers.

So thank you everyone, I love you guys. I know I sound like a wicked sap, but seriously.

I have officially survived one of the most stressful weeks ever, I got everything done on time, and it looks as if I'm going to leave my apartment at the time I planned, win! I'm off to Maine to enjoy no internet access and minimal phone reception.

Have a FANTASTIC weekend!

Many thanks for posting. I don't really blog anymore (it's been almost four months since my last post) but I do still read on my Google Reader and you still inspire me.

Also, I don't know if you'll be making coffee (or if you'll be doing something else), but you'll be the best-looking barista around :)

Thank you Elbee, I will be making coffee!

I love a good cat in a box. We've had a Poland Springs box in our kitchen for weeks because the cats love sitting in it. I can't bear to toss it haha.

Enjoy your weekend retreat!

Enjoy your weekend. You are so sweet. I have never commented before, but I love your blog and read it often. We all go through bouts of stress. Balancing life (or plates) can be difficult. I hope that getting away this weekend helps lighten the load for you.

Hi Julie,

Just wanted to say I still very much enjoy your blog. I have just started a full time admin job after completing my PhD thesis last year (I think I emailed you about it!) and am trying to submit articles etc in my spare time, so I understand where you're coming from with regards to spinning plates! Best of luck with the job and enjoy your break :)
