I want to apologize to you all for not being around the blogosphere. I haven't responded back to the thoughtful messages that have been left for me and haven't visited nearly as many of your blogs as I'd like. My excuses are normal excuses and I make no excuses for them:
1. My kids have needed me. We've had croup, cavities, and a nasty cold that have made my kids act nastier than the nastiest I've ever seen them act. Ever. Nasty.
2. I had another full request. Only this time it was for a hard copy, which out of all the ones I've had, this is the first request for oh you know, actual paper and a cover letter. It's been a revelation getting that together and has taken me longer than I anticipated. I mean, who knew a brand new printer would run out of ink just when you actually have something important to print? Or that in all the house I couldn't find TWO MORE PAGES of unscribbled, uncut, kid-mess-free computer paper to finish off the printing once I did track down new ink cartridges in my podunk town? I feel for all my writing forbearers who worked before email attachments to say the least.
3. We're headed out for Spring Break vacation today and I've been trying to get that ready. Huzzah for a lodge and an ATV!
While these are good things (okay, not the sickness, but the kids for sure), I've missed you! And my husband can laugh all he wants about my virtual friends, but I think it's wonderful to have you all with me on this... journey? obsession? (I'll stick with journey.)
In other news, stayed tuned on Wednesday for an interview with a super-secret author. I'll give you a hint: her tween novel comes out Tuesday, March 16th! Track that name down if you can.
Happy Friday to you all!
