I promise I'm still alive! And missing all of you...

Finally! Yes, finally! We have internet, people, and hallelujah for me!

Now, if we could just get our DirecTV up and running, then perhaps I would stop missing all my shows! And you would stop missing all my fabulous reviews! And then I could stop using so many exclamation points!

Yes. I have missed both parts of Sense and Sensibility. And American Idol last night. And tonight. And the Biggest Loser. The worst part? Not one was recorded. I have no recordings of these shows, people! The only solace in this sea of frustration and grief is that Bythelbs, that great blogger girl, has recorded Sense and Sensibility for me and it should arrive in the mail soon. But what about AI!? I feel sick that I can't give you, dear reader, my brilliant analysis. I wish I could, but I can't. So I won't. Although I wish I could. Oh, how I wish I could...Holy, Hannah! I don't even know who was voted off tonight! I better go find out. 

Thank you to all of you for checking in on me. To those that have sent me emails, I promise to get back to you by the end of the week. To those that miss my blogging --thank you! I am glad that there are people out there who care about my crazy, crazy ramblings. Oh, and to those of you who don't care about me, my blog, or my lack of internet/TV/posts-of-brilliant-things, then why are you reading this!?

Next week, I promise to deliver some exciting posts. First, we'll have The Move: Part I. And then we'll have The Move: Part II. Next we will have The Move: Part III (are you getting this?), and then perhaps The Move: Part IV! Although the titles are not as riveting as one would hope, they content will be astounding! So exciting and enticing! Thrilling, really. 

[OH!!!! My baby brother is engaged!! I'll tell you more about that, too.] 

And finally, if you wrote on your blog in these last two weeks and I have not commented on your blog in these last two weeks, please understand that I probably won't be commenting on your blog this week either. It's not personal! And it's not because I don't want to. I mean, honestly? Nothing gives me greater sadistic pleasure than spending hours and hours on the computer commenting on your posts. However, I still have loads, and loads, and loads of stuff to unpack. And things to clean. And a life to re-start. So, forgiveness from you is not crazy, right...? 

That is all.  :)

Welcome back! I was out of town, so I totally know the feeling of being behind on blogging...Arg!

I did enjoy reading your past blogs while you were not posting new ones, I finished 2006, and I'm already halfway through 2007. :)

BTW, I set my blog to private. If you're interested in being on my super-special invited readers list, just have your sis give me your email address, and I'll send you an invite. :)

Oh, I'm so glad you are back! I've missed you! Hope the move was good and you found all well in Utah. I heard about Jared - now I just need details. Happy unpacking to you! The vote-off of AI is tomorrow night...

Jill said...

I too am glad you have returned to the world of blogging! You missed the best Biggest Loser of all! The girls had more weight loss again, so they are the top two going into finals next week. America gets to vote to let either Mark or Roger be the third of the final three. I really wonder if Ali can lose much more weight. She's at 135, and I don't know if she can win. However, Kelly has the most weight to lose and could win the whole thing if she works hard at home. We'll have to see. I hope that unpacking is not proving too stressful. We're off to travel the mid-west this weekend, but I will be looking forward to updates on your blog on Monday!

Yay! I'm glad you're back! I missed you! The AI results are tonight. They had Idol Gives Back last night. Can't wait to hear all about the move!

Oh and Sense and Sensibility was GOOD! Oh how I loved it! I was afraid I wouldn't because I love the Emma Thompson version but this one was SO good!

Amanda said...

I'm glad you are back! Yay! I recorded BL but by the time it got to you it would probably be past Tuesday and by then you would have watched the finale, but if you want it let me know!

Julie said...

Cheryl! Be still my beating heart! I'm so glad you're back. And that you arrived safely.
AI was good this week, you'll have to read my recap (HA!). Idol Gives Back was fun, as usual. And you can see the elimination tonight!
Come to my house and watch S&S! We can dish about it together. It was ten times better than the Hollywood version. So Much Better. I loved it.
I love that you're back!
Welcome Home!

You HORRIBLE person for not blogging for a week! Riiiiight.... this from me! We are so glad you are back, and looking even more fabulous than ever, and already getting your kids involved and house together.... what a woman!

Sense and Sensibility left here on Tuesday, so it should be any time now.

My computer died. It just turned off all of a sudden and then started smelling funny. That can't be a good sign, right? I'm on my son's computer now and don't know how to access my e-mail from here so I'll have no idea that you aren't responding to my e-mails, if that assuages your guilt any.

Happy unpacking!

I can handle no comments on my posts as long as I can read yours again! So happy to see you back! Can't wait to hear the adventures in moving! Welcome back to cyberworld!!! have been missed!

(BTW...This is LAHansen...I have now updated my blogger profile to let people know my first name, which is Leslie!)

Wow, what a teaser!

Sense and Sensibility was so good. I watched it again yesterday when I was doing laundry.

Desi said...

I'm so glad you made it there safe and sound.

I'm even more glad that you are back to blogging. (Is that selfish and wrong?) Welcome back and I can't wait to hear all about your move.

Summer said...

Hey, good to see you back. I have a giveaway going on at

Scroll down to the Sense and Sensibility Review. You won't want to miss it.

Jolene said...

I have been without a computer for a few days and when I got on my google reader tonight - I was overwhelmed and vowed not to click over to post any comments. But I had to tell you that I am glad your move has been progressing and that you are there safely. Good luck with the unpacking and settling in.

I am glad you made it! How does it feel to be back? You can watch AI on You Tube. That is where I watched it because I was not home to see it live. Just type AI Top 8. You don't have to pay to download it (which makes me mad AI people!). Sense and Sensability was GREAT! I actually like it better. The characters are closer in age and I think did a better job with the material. I do love Emma Thompson though. She really made the last one, but this one is so good. I have it on Tivo, so let me know if you need a copy.

Cheryl said...

YES! Add me to your list. :)

All of you:

Thank you! I seriously have the best blogging friends in the whole bloggersphere! I mean it, I do.

I'm busily unpacking, but thinking of the awesome posts I'm going to write. Including one of the heart-wrenching, terrifying, and sad vote-off on AI last night. *sniff*sniff*

Love you guys! I promise I'll be around some more,, darn it, where is the box with the toilet paper...?!?
