Today, I'm a little less wise...

...and a lot more medicated!

That's right, I had wisdom tooth surgery yesterday. So while I can't bear even the thought* of food at the moment, I just wanted to let you faithful few know that I am still here (and by 'here,' I mean glued to my couch for the next couple of days, hopped up on pills and Pinterest).

The past few weeks have been really busy - even busier than wisdom tooth surgery and moving into new home in Kentucky would suggest.

But let's be honest, it isn't just busyness that keeps me from blogging these days. The catastrophic failure of my hard drive about a month ago really took the wind out of my blogging sails. Add to that Matt's rapidly approaching deployment - just over a month away, now - and I just haven't had the urge to write.

I'm still cooking and baking (is it even possible to separate those from breathing?) but my blogstream is full of stale, half written posts and the photo file on this new hard drive is practically non-existent.

I know I'll find my feet again soon, but in the meantime, I wanted to thank each and every one of you for patience, concern and (miraculously!) continued interest during these past few weeks of downtime.

While it feels a bit disingenuous to be plying you with yet another apology post, I promise I've no intention of stringing you all along (in fact, I even have some exciting, blog-related developments in the works that I just can't wait to share!). I'll be back soon, and hopefully better than ever - if just a little less wise.

*Okay, I lied. I'm always thinking about food - I just don't feel like eating if for the time being.

After these messages....

Remember when those three little words were used to introduce commercial breaks? Well, you may have noticed that I've been away from my regular 'programming' for a couple of weeks. That doesn't mean I've been napping on the job; in fact, when things get quiet on the Traveling Spoon, you can be sure they're crazy-busy in 'real' life.

In the past couple of weeks, Matt and I experienced our first cruise vacation (to Bermuda, no less!), and spent a week visiting his parents in South Carolina. We've been back less than a full day and already we're preparing for the next big adventure - tomorrow we begin moving all of our things down the road to our first non-apartment home!

Our new place may be only 30 minutes away, but it's in a completely different state (we'll be living in Kentucky by the end of the week!), and since our entire lives are packed up in tiny shipping boxes, this move may prove to be rather challenging.

In other words, my 'commercial break' may have to last a little longer, but I hope you'll 'stay tuned' nonetheless. I'm hoping to share some great cruise-themed posts (yes, I basically ate my way across the Atlantic) and lots of new recipes - so don't go away, we'll be right back!
