Hey guys–all of you who’ve been here awhile and all my new readers, too– I’m about to go on a little blog hiatus for the next few weeks. Maybe ship the kiddos off to summer camp (yeah, right) do a little gardening, drink a few beers, pass out in the pool….y’know, your typical wholesome family fun.
I hope that once the effects of the PBRs, chlorine fumes, and sunscreen-poisoning wear off, I’ll be conscious enough to start posting again sometime late July.
Be sure to come back for my
She’s A Maineiac’s Second Anniversary Blog-a-palooza post on July 21st!
(Yes! I’ve actually been blogging that long! I know, it’s nuts, right? My husband thinks so.)
There will be another rockin’ video! Much better than the last one even!
There will be danger! Mild Profanity! Cool music!
Also, another vlog! Where I do something very embarrassing!
And…maybe…some disastrous baton-twirling!
And my first contest! You might win something!
(oh, so NOW I have your attention? I get it, you only want freebies…I understand)
Until then, I’ll miss you all.
See you July 21st, I hope!
(Feel free to use the comment section below for your own amusement during my break. Post hijack at will, chitchat, have private convos about the latest in blogging gossip, share recipes, discuss climate change–but please– keep it friendly while I’m gone….and if anyone else I know gets FP in the next month, here’s my comment in advance: Congrats! WOW! Well deserved! I love you and I’m not just saying that!)

We will of course welcome you back with bells and whistles.
Enjoy your break, will be looking forward to your return. 🙂
Have a wonderful summer!
Is she gone yet? Do you think she will notice if we steal a bit of her funny while is away … Oh, Darla, didn’t see you there. What am I doing? I was just um … you know … um … (sound of Ape crashing through window and running frantically down street)
bwah-haha. sh’e can’t keep all the funny for herself!
You’ll be missed, Darla! Have a fabulous vacation from blogging. And I look forward to ‘seeing’ you again in July!
Have a great break Darla…we’ll miss ya!
You had me at “do a little gardening, drink a few beers.” I should do that when I’m off. No, wait…maybe I already am off. No, there are still kids here. Wait. Never mind.
Looking forward to Darla-palooza. Have fun and wear sunscreen, so you don’t look like a raccoon in your baton-twirling video (I wait with bated breath).
Is anyone else giddy at the thought of one less tough competitor in the 7 Deadly Sins Contest, Byronic’s caption contests and other sundry contests of wit and creativity?!
In other news, I’m glad that Darla will be enjoying herself and chilling out. I know if that was me, I’d have been filling that coffee mug with PRB’s and IPA’s a long time ago. Who am I kidding? I drink out in the open.
I am going to miss you, but have a fantabulous vacation! Wow!
Looking forward to winning a “maniacal” prize when you get back.
Love your sincere congratulations~ You crack me up Darla. The best ever photos! Can’t wait for your video!
Have a great vacation. I’ll miss you.
can I join you?
i just made a delicious pb&j for breakfast.. if anyone wants the recipe, I’ll be hanging around.
Ha! I just had one for lunch. 🙂
Crunchy or smooth PB?
Smooth Jiffy and jelly made from garden strawberries on potato bread. Mmm… 🙂
That jam must be delicious!
Oh my gosh. I honestly feel like we’re saying goodbye for the summer before we both go to high school. What am I going to do without you?! Okay, deep breath, it’s only one month…
ha ha! I hope you have a WONDERFUL hiatus (your advanced FP’d comment is hilarious) and I cannot WAIT for the baton-twirling anniversary vlog (I’m just going to assume this IS happening, to help me cope with your departure)…
NOOOOO!!! Don’t leave me! I finally found my long lost twin and now you up and disappear on me??? How is this fair? LIFE IS NOT FAIR!! Grrrrrrrr.
Sigh. Ok, deep breaths, zen outlook, calm demeanor . . .
Fine. You go and have your fun. But I will be waiting here when you return. Oh yes, I WILL be waiting. You can count on that!
Have a great break. You deserve it. I will miss you. See you on the flip side! 😉
Enjoy your break! Save me some Skittles!
Enjoy your hiatus, Darla. I will miss you. Then again, with you out of the way, my chances of being Freshly Pressed just increased by 1. Woo hoo!! *sigh* Happy Summer!!
Have a great time!
Be safe. Will love to hear about the time off when you get back.
Okay everybody, let’s take over this blog. We have a month. We can do some serious damage. hehehe.
Jules, Peg, Lenore, Thoughtsy, Misty, Byronic, and the rest of yous, let’s take it over. 🙂
Hmm, well let’s see . . . you’ve already stolen her mug and avatar. I guess I could try to aquisition all of her plaid flannel shirts. Although, I tried that look in the 90’s when grunge was all the fashion, and I don’t think anyone wants me to go back to THAT look. Unless it comes with Eddie Vedder. Cuz then . . . well, let’s be honest. I will probably be trying even harder to get OUT of those flannel shirts, ya know. 😉
THAT’S why MJ’s new avatar looks so familiar – it has been bugging me.
I was just thinking that Darla’s post on sex will probably be FPd next week. If a post falls in the FP forest but the blogger isn’t around to hear it, did it happen?
Hmm, are you sure she didn’t steal my mug and plaid shirts?? I’ve been sporting plaid since … well, let’s not get into that. A LONG TIME! 🙂
So Misty likes Eddie Vedder, huh?
You did steal her gravatar! How evil. I like you’re style, MJ. I’m in on the plot to bring down Darla’s blog.
“your” Maybe that’s how I’ll bring it down! A series of comments that misuses your/you’re!
It’s how I roll, Angie, 🙂 I aim to aggravate.. I mean, I aim to please.
Alright, let’s have fun with this, then.
Thank goodness you recovered quickly from the your/you’re travesty, Angie. For a split second there, I wasn’t sure we could be friends.
And I would completely understood if you felt that way. As for me, I could never be friends with someone who made their own almond milk — mostly because it would make me feel lazy and inept.
Would it help if I started wearing mustard socks and ketchup sashes? Maybe our friendship can be repaired if we’re BOTH on the A Train to fashion. 🙂
Ahhhhhh! I was hoping to hear that line again one day!
But the really aggravating thing was, that chick was wearing WHITE socks. WHITE. On what planet is mustard supposed to be WHITE??? I didn’t mention it at the time because I didn’t want to diss your awesome fashion-backward video, Angie.
I’m hurt, Peg.
Oh, sad! For us, I mean. Enjoy your month off and take copious notes. I’m sure there will be at least a week’s worth of good material in there!
Hope you have a great vacation!
Brave move to leave comments on while you are gone…
Awwwwww. I’ll miss you, Darla! But a well deserved break for sure. What is that, do I see a WP tat on your arm? Did you and Peg get those without me? We were going to go together! I feel so left out, like I didn’t get invited to your slumber party. Oh well, to get even I intend to use this comment space to post youtube clips of the Chariots of Fire soundtrack for the next few weeks. I hope you still have readers left when I’m done.
Have a great time, Darla. Michael Monaghan, you mischief-maker you. You don’t really mean to hijack Darla’s blog. Do you? Oh, my ….
Would I do something like that, Judy?? 🙂
I’m guessing ‘yes.’ 😆
Bye, Darla! Don’t let curiosity get the best of you. We’ll behave–mwahaha Did anyone see where she left the Skittles?
Have a great time Darla. We will all wait for your return. Thanks for the comment on my freshly pressed post in advance. 🙂
So glad you are taking some time off!! Have a lovely summer!
Darla, are you back yet? Do you miss us?
Bad timing funny Darla,
I just wanted to give you a heads up that I nominated you to receive two blogger awards in my post yesterday evening. Here is the short link
Darliciousness, I miss you! I hope you aren’t pulling your hair out. It will take some adjustment, as all habit changes do, to have you relaxing with a few PBRs in the kiddy poo, without reading all the fabulous blogs you subscribe too, including, well, Yours!
Your plaid outfits are so COOL! I know you will be the hit at the kiddy pool convention 🙂
OK, MJ Monaghan, what gives with you stealing Darla’s plaid coffee cup? Hmmmm?
That doesn’t seem fair, since she’s not here to defend herself. And so I am confused about who you are. Do tell. What’s with the change of avatar?
Love and peace to you all. Hari Krishna! (have a flower, thank you for your donation – NOT). The T-Berry Woman…
Whoo-hoo. She’s outta the drive-way. Call everybody, I’ll check her fridge for beer. What? Empty? No problemo, we can raid her neighbors. Parteee!
I just finally started getting notifications of your posts again!! Grrrr!
Okay, fine. Happy hiatus.
Have a great holiday, Darla! Thanks for keeping my inbox cleanish for the next month or so– I totally appreciate the help and CAN’T WAIT for the video when you get back. 🙂
Hope you are enjoying your blogging break, and I hope I remember to check back in at the right time when you return. I think we must have started blogging about the same time because my two-year anniversary is the beginning of August. Hard to believe!
Oh, geez! I feel guilty for how long it took me to catch on, but I’m a little glad, too. That’s one less week of me watching the calendar! Hope you’re having a blast, lady. ❤
I think those pictures have been doctored. Your kids are home from school and they’re letting you take a nap?
It would be funny if during your break, you got Freshly Pressed. Well, wouldn’t it?
Ha! You are a clever one, Charles. Yeah–like I would ever be laying down resting for any length of time this summer.
It would be hilarious if I was FP in the next few weeks. If I’m not around I nominate you to reply to all my comments. You’re not busy, right?
