Did I mention that traditionally February kicks my ass? Sheesh. Sorry for the long break! The last few weeks have been the perfect storm of Winter blahs, kid wrangling, and freelancing mayhem. I had three jobs come together all at once (which I usually try to avoid like a trip to Chuck E. Cheese) and so very few kid free hours to do them in (I do need to sleep after all). Pretty much everything non-essential got shoved over so I could attempt to make a living along with, you know, living. So, I apologize. The good news is that I’ve been keeping a list of all the things I want to catch up on here and it’s kinda lengthy (some even have pictures to go along with them!). The bad news is that I am still in the midst of working so it’s going to be just a little longer. When it rains, it pours as they say. At least the Winter blahs seem to be abating with some really gorgeous early Spring weather. My favorite!
Just to update you on K’s status, training is over and he has made it to Afghanistan safely—I heard from him yesterday morning. It was just a quick email to let me know his internet connection was spotty at the moment but as soon as he could, he’d email again. I am guessing it’s going to take about a month for us to get into some sort of communication groove. He’s got to get settled into his new “home” and build a rhythm with his job, plus, you know those bad guys are going to be active with the break from Winter, so my expectations are low for how often we’ll hear from K this early on.
In the meantime, I juggle. I don’t feel quite as overwhelmed as I did just over a week ago, but I’ve still got a lot to finish up before I can sit down and write the way I want. It’s coming though! I have all kinds of things in my head just waiting to make it to the screen. Won’t be long, I promise!
Thanks for your patience!!
