A-Z and An Apology

It's almost time for the 2014 Blogging from A-Z April Challenge!  In just five more weeks you'll be seeing the above logo all over the blogsphere as nearly two thousand bloggers join together in creating 26 daily posts based on letters of the alphabet.  The themes are many and varied, or if you prefer, you can do your posts hodge-podge style with no connecting theme at all!  This will be my third year of participation, and I can tell you that it's great fun and a wonderful way to meet some new bloggers. Sign-ups are already in progress, click here to add your name to the list of participants; I'm #783! Come and join me for the A-Z Challenge this April... give your blogging muscles a stretch!
 
Also, a quick note of apology for my recent absence from my blog and commenting on others, I've been dealing with ongoing allergies/cold/sinus infection for about three weeks and it's worn me out. I finally gave up on waiting for my immune system to fight it off and went to the doctor yesterday for shots and medication, so hopefully I'll soon see my health returning and my blogging energy restored. As always, my brain is overflowing with things I want to say! :-)

  1. I've been going back and forth about the A to Z. Looking at the calendar, April just doesn't look like the month for me to be posting every day. But it was so fun last year, and I met some wonderful people while doing it. *looking at you!* I'm torn.
    No need to apologize! I hope those meds get you feeling like your old self real soon.

    1. Really organized folks have their posts done ahead of time and pre-scheduled, Christine. I wish I was one of them, but I will likely be doing them day by day as usual. Will go with something a bit shorter this year though, I know it becomes a lot for people to read as they travel blog to blog! I understand about time limitations.

      I hope I start feeling better soon too, I get so frustrated when I run out of energy, always more I want to do!

    2. Hahahaha!! Pre-scheduled posts?!?! OK, I did that a few times last year, but only a few of them. I need to come up with a theme. I think it would be a lot easier that way.

    1. Thanks Mimi, I am hoping that I will be back in gear by the beginning of next week, feeling a bit of stress from the meds today. Good grief! :-/

    1. Thanks Zoe! How amazing that we ended up at 783 and 784 just by the luck of the draw! Figure the odds on that happening! It made me smile and brightened my day! :-)

    1. Well, I woke up this morning feeling worse. :-( I'm thinking I may have picked up another bug at the doctor's office. Hoping the meds will kick in soon and get me up to speed.

      I think I have an idea for the A-Z, so if I can get a basic outline set up ahead of time it won't be too hard. At least it's only six days a week, definitely need a day off to recharge!

    1. It is now Sunday evening and I am starting to feel better, finally, Lisa! I'm glad because it's going to be a busy week ahead!

  6. I hope you feel better soon- my allergies will be hitting shortly when the first weeds pop up outside and I have to mow them down. Not looking forward to the sinus headaches that always haunt me in March and April.

    1. The older I get the more allergies seem to plague me, Terri. We get a lot of blowing dirt down here, and I'm sure the cat fur floating in the air at the house doesn't help much either. It's one of those learn to live with it things. Yes, once it greens up, pollen will be another headache, literally! Ahh the joys of breathing! :-)

    1. Yay for you Abelle!! It is a challenge to come up with posts related to the alphabet each day. I have been known to bend the rules a bit on Q, X, and Z! :-)
