Boy! Am I Tired!

Gosh but I am beat! Our company left late this morning and the house seems so quiet tonight. It was a sweet week but I do not think God meant for a chubby 52 year old to be on the run as much as I have been for the past 2 months! This has been the busiest Summer in and loaded with great memories, but whew. I could use a nice, long nap. I promise to provide you all with some giggles over my husband's little faux pas (That is a kindly word for it!!) last week and a few stories from the past 6 days but I will save it for tomorrow! Tonight I want to do 3 things. First off? I want to apologize for not being able to visit or leave comments on your blogs like I should do and LOVE to do. I do hope I will be forgiven and I can get back to more normal blog behavior in the near future..okay...for what passes as normal behavior for moi. Ahem. And second? I want to warmly welcome those of you who are new visitors/commenters here at Rabbit Run! I am tickled to see so many new names and hope we can get to know one another better in the months to come. And Third? How wonderful to see that so many of you have played Susie Q's little game! I have taken a peek at so many fun lists and it surely did make me smile. Comments will be forthcoming on your posts...eventually! I promise! I am sure I am missing some birthdays, anniversaries and special times while being such a dizzy blogger....again, apologies to you all. I do so enjoy posting special wishes to you on those occasions. I miss blogging with regularity and visiting you all daily. It is a pure joy for me to do so. This Summer tizzy can not last forever right? *smile* Oh, and I leave for Jamestown, New York on Thursday. Talk about crazy....Wait! Did someone just call me crazy??
Love and Hugs,
Susie Q

I played Susie Q's Game ;)

So glad you had a wonderful time with your friends. Hope you have a great trip as well!

This summer has been crazy for us too. We have never been so busy or traveled so much, but it sure has been fun. :o)

Hugs and Smiles,

My goodness Sue, you are getting around this summer! Well that is what summer is for and enjoy every moment of it:>) We can visit more when the autumn rolls around and things have slowed down a bit:>)

Connie said...

Sounds quite normal to me, rabbit chickee! I've have to live 562 years to accomplish all I want to do before I'm sent to that Big Blog In The Sky!!! *sigh*..........
SMoochies, :-)

Melissa said...

I too "played" your "game" and have the sore typing fingers to prove it. That was one long list Miz Susie Q!

Gretchen said...

I played the SQ game. :) You know, you're tired now, and should nap. However, in the future when you remember this amazing summer, i doubt that you'll remember the fatigue. I think it will all be precious memories.


Meggie said...

Glad to know that things will be getting back to normal soon at Rabbit Run Cottage. Have a good loooong nap!

Shelia said...

You've been as busy as a bunny, huh? Summer seems to be that way anymore. Hope you can get back to some normalcy <-is that a word?
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Andi said...

Look at all the people that played your wonderful game!!! How awesome is that!!!

So glad you survived the week. Now the real question is...did Bill? Did you just open the door and discover your guests a day early??? This will be a good story I'm sure when you post it!!!

Get some rest and have fun in NY

Lisa said...

Wow, you have had a busy summer haven't you? You get some rest and have fun and be safe in New York!

Happy sigh.

Just had the most wonderful visit with one of my favorite bloggers: Susie Q!

Read every post that I had missed (so embarrassed that I was gone so long! Just been hanging with my little guy this summer and not making time for visits. I love that I am spending time with my little one, but very guilty that I haven't been visiting!) So ... I am ready for my quiz! LOL.
Love the magazine posts where you created your own covers.
I love your honesty too. Those dang critical people leaving horrible comments on my Susie Q???!!! I know people. They will be dispatched automatically in the future to "handle" those critical people. I think that the people who do that are simply BLIND. They don't see that they ARE what they accuse YOU of being. That's why it bugs them. OK. I forgive them since they ARE legally blind ... but they had better take a moment to introspect next time before they POINT ANY FINGERS.
As if my Susie Q could be "an adulteress! Overly Christian, Underly Christian" (and at the same time!) ... and this one has me seeing RED ... A.S. I.F. G.O.D. D.I.D.N.T. W.A.N.T. Y.O.U. T.O. H.A.V.E. C.H.I.L.D.R.E.N.... !!!!! Ooooooooooooooooooooooh!!!!!! That makes me SO MAD. DON'T THEY KNOW ANYTHING? God needs the BEST people to adopt children who have had rough starts to life... it means He thinks you are a parent without equal ... the creme de la creme. THAT'S what it means. Kept one window shut so you would be in line at a super cool window ... the one where you got Grace and Grace got you. Dan too, of course. Don't EVEN get me started.
Enjoyed your list of fav.s I like mint chocolate chip too. Could relate to several items on there. Just already forgot them. LOL.
Loved the wedding pics and how original the bride and groom were. Love that Grace has a crush on Chris. Fun! Great that she danced, too.
My favorite post of all was the one where you included your worries. I FEEL THE SAME WAY! Have I offended? Why has someone not answered me? Not funny enough? House not cute enough? Worried about losing my blog buddies.
Just in case you were wondering, there ain't a chance in Hades that you have ever offended me or bored me. Wait ... that's not true. Once you did this ridiculously long post and I said: Oh no she didn't! I am NOT reading all of this. (blush) (Hope I didn't offend YOU now...?)
No ... girl ... I am like GUM ON YOUR SHOE. The really sticky kind. And I'm not going anywhere. (Hope this is good news to you? LOL! If not, TOO BAD :) ... CUZ I LIKE IT HERE. ... and it's all about ME don't cha know? heee.)
And a "my bad" for not reading that post where you said: "Wendy, your box will be in the mail soon." I "shoulda" been there to assure you that it's not a problem. Didn't see it until today.
Don't even worry about when you mail my "item". Whenever it gets here it will be enjoyed. I am actually MORE RELIEVED that you didn't send it at "the speed of light" ... you know ... like those perfect people who I love but whom I can't keep up with and who therefore make me feel inadequate as a mailer. Glad you are a "me" ... doing your best to get to everything, and sometimes falling behind. Thank goodness I am not alone. WHEW.
OK. A novel length comment, but I just wanted you to know that I have been thinking of you and feeling sheepish because I haven't gotten over here in a coon's age.
Keep up your fabulous blog. I think it's perfect. As a matter of fact, I recommended ONLY three blogs to my sister (that would match her tastes and her sensitive sensitivities) and YOURS was one of those three. Yuppers. You rock, Susie Q woman.

I love ya!

Okay...Blogger is acting weird tonight so you might end up getting two comments on this post??

Anyhoo...I sooooooooo know what you mean. It's been wild and crazy for me lately too. It seems I can never get caught up with my blog reading. I just keep plugging along. Don't you worry...we'll all be here waiting for another post when you return.
