Recess

August is usually recess month for Congress in D.C. It's also the month where a lot of Washington goes on vacation and commuting to work is actually enjoyable. It will stay that way until the end of August, when every one will rush back to get their kids ready for school. Then, after Labor Day, it'll be back to "crunch time", Congress will be back in session, the presidential campaign circus will kick into full and sickening throttle, and commuting will become a four-letter word again.

All that to say, I'm going on a sort-of recess, too. Meaning, I'm noodling whether to revamp this blog or jettison it altogether and start anew, which means I won't be posting as frequently on Rush Hour. When I come back--if I come back--it may be with a new blog name and a pseudonym. I'll continue to post over on D.C. Confidential and if any postcards wander in between now and the end of the month, I'll post them here. (Rumor has it, I have cards headed this way from Las Vegas and Oregon!)

P.S. Knowing how long I lasted the last time I said I was going on hiatus, I wouldn't worry too much about my self-imposed recess. I'm lousy at keeping my thoughts to myself. No doubt I'll be posting something here in no time.

Wow, you know I'm here for you no matter what.

And a little birdie told me that there IS in fact a postcard coming from Vegas...(curse my procrastination tendencies!)

:) Take care.

Di said...

At the very least, you better tell me where you moved to...if you move. :-)

Di said...

Is it too late to say, please don't go?!?!

:-(

SML: Funny about Vegas! I was actually referring to a postcard from one of my lobbyists! BUT... I'm not proud. I'll take your card, too! ;-)

Di x 2: Don't worry. I will tell you. And no, it's not too late to say "don't go." I just have to figure out how I want to be in the public blogosphere.

You still haven't emailed me your address so I can send you the cards. Enjoy your hiatus, but come back soon.

Janet Kincaid said...

Cele: Hi! Did you email me? I just went and checked my AOL account and didn't find anything... My fear is, I may have accidentally deleted your email. I looked on your Blogger profile for an email address, but didn't find a link. Am I missing something there? I'm still very desirous of an Oregon postcard... Help!

Janet Kincaid said...

Cele: Belay that last comment. I just found your email! Woo hoo! And I responded, so check your email. Sorry for all the confusion.

Wherever you blog, we'll be reading. :)

Man, I could use some recess, too...

Oh...I've just come back and you're moving on!

You really SHOULD get a postcard from Sweden, but let's be honest...it IS the Younglings, and the Younglings aren't the postcard type people. I admit it. I suck at it. BIG time. But, I do think of you, my friend. So, consider this your ½!"#¤@* postcard! You're welcome dear!
Lova ya!

Merujo: I'm thinking some serious swinging on the swing set is in order! We all need recess. And a nap!

Vernicious: Glad to see you again. Don't despair too much. I'm pretty sure I'll be back, I'm just not 100% sure what form that will take, but I'll make sure you know where I land.

Monica: D*mmit, girl! I want a postcard from Sweden!! Hope you and D are having a good time in your mother country. We're frying our brains out over here. We've got to get together when you guys get home. It's been TOO long... xoxo
