Old Age…She Comes

(Or: This One’s For You, Rob)

I was berated (in a friendly way) last night about not blogging lately. And it is true. I’ve been writing this blog since 2005, people. That’s SEVEN YEARS. I’m actually shocked myself that it’s been going on this long. You’ve seen me single, dating, skinny, not-so-skinny, married, preggers… you name it.

So I’d like to say in my own defense that mayhaps I’m starting to run out of things to talk about. Or conversely, don’t have nearly as much time to blog on a daily basis as I once had.

C’est la vie. It certainly makes things a little tougher having Ms. Junior Peanut around taking up a lot of my time, that’s for sure. Others would say that I have plenty of time — it’s making the best use of that time that counts, and doing so would certainly allow for regular blogging. Sure. I get that. But I’m human, too. I can be tired, lazy, busy, despondent, preoccupied, etc., etc. Lots of excuses. *shrug*

So what does this mean for the future? I make no promises, folks. I’ll be here when I’m here. And thank you from the bottom of my wee heart for bothering to show up on a regular basis to see what I have to say. I do appreciate your visits (got that, Rob?) and do try to provide some small snippets of entertainment and other oddments to entice you to keep coming back. So thank you for being forgiving and understanding. I will keep you posted on writing projects as they develop, and continue being me as much as possible.


August! W00T!

Monday, August 6th, 2012

Huh. Lookie that, folks. Somehow or other we made it through July intact and are now thoroughly entrenched in August. This month should also prove to go by quickly as there’s something happening almost every week. Next thing you know, the Offspring will be Back. In. School.

*pauses to enjoy the mental image*

Of course, that also means back-to-school shopping, but I can live with that. Especially since we’ve got a ton of materials from last year that will be reusable this time around. So our list will be small, I think.

Anyway. I haven’t much new to report. I’m giving Party Starter one more try with a final publisher. If it doesn’t fly there, it will be shelved indefinitely. I will not flog the dead horse any longer. This week I’ll see if I can get back into the groove to work on something new. I’ll see what I can get to.

I’ve also got about a zillion craft projects I want to work on. And as usual not nearly enough time in each day. Ugh!

Today is a statutory holiday in my neck of the woods, so we’re off to a BBQ as soon as Ms. Junior Peanut wakes from her nap. Catch you on the flip side, folks!
