Digital Meltdown

I know.

We've been as M.I.A. lately as Kanye's impulse control.

I'm really, really sorry about that. And I don't even have an ill-timed Hennessy to blame it on (the over-used joke OR the prolonged unexplained absence).

I think I just had a total digital communication overload. Have you ever felt that? This was the first time since I started blogging/facebooking/twittering/instant messaging/thought beaming that I experienced it. I hope I'm not the only one who's ever felt it. The best way to describe it was that I just couldn't keep up. I needed to take a step back into the cave and recollect my thoughts.

But now we're back.

We might take a little bit different approach to the blog now. For anyone who remembers, we had this idea to post every day on different topics and we came up with clever-ish names for the different days and everything. As a kid, one of my friend's moms had every shelf in the pantry color-coded and labeled (with an actual label-maker, which immediately raises its bearer to wizard status when you're nine and it's 1990). My awe at this totally impractical arrangement is the only thing I can think to blame for the "naming the days" thing.

We're just going to post now as an outlet-- to connect with you, to share cool stuff we find (regardless of the day), to give you occasional updates on Junky, to have fun. We won't have any more breakdowns and disappear for three months. Problem solved.

But to anyone still reading (especially Aunt Sue), we're sorry for being such blog dingos. We hope you'll forgive us.


  1. Due to the grandeur of my largesse, I am opting to forgive all.

    (And I don't like being scheduled, either.) That would stifle my creative juices instantly. For sure.


  2. JUST the other day, I was thinking - did I not add their blog to my reader? Happy to realize I did and you'll be back occasionally :). Hope you two are doing well!

  3. I've been wondering about you guys for a long time! (like, since your last post). I kinda thought your "naming the days" thing was a cool idea, but I agree with Sue that it could be kind of hard to feel like you have to stick to that schedule and not just post what you want to post. Well anyway, I look forward to more updates! (oh, and I still have your casserole dish! I know you probably don't think about it much, but every time I open my cupboard to get a cup, there it is on the top shelf, staring at me, reminding me to give it back to its owner (who is you). SO, wanna get together sometime?! We would love to see you guys! We should meet up for dinner someplace or something.

  4. Oh I am sooo happy about this, and I totally understand/agree about the stifling nature of feeling like you have to always be posting stuff. It does get stressful!

  5. Amen sisters. Sometimes you just gotta shut 'er down. Glad you're back. Love you guys

  6. You've no idea how excited Bri and I are that you've resurfaced. Glad to see you're back.

  7. We're doing our part to spread the good word of Junky. We were in Sun Valley last weekend and found an adorable stationary shop that we believe needs to sell your products. We gave them your info and they seemed excited.

  8. I sooo know how you felt but I am glad to see you back ;)

  9. I have had digital overload quite a few times before. It can be pretty crazy. Welcome back! I think that you have come up with a brilliant plan to help prevent this problem in the future.

  10. I can understand your problem. Sometimes, I want to stop everything for a while and rearrange the steps of the journey.
