My only defense for neglecting my blog is that I have been so busy writing GWIII that I’ve let a lot of things slide, not just blogging. You know, household stuff, family stuff (oh look! kids!) … All I can say is that it’s a good thing my husband does the actual bill-paying or I would be getting some mighty uncomfortable phone calls from guys with gravelly voices who threaten to come to my house to make sure I pay up.
(Seriously, I cover the collections industry, and while they have cleaned up most of their act, there are some pretty unethical companies out there).
Anyway, it’s only partly an exaggeration.
What I’ve been doing:
Writing the aforementioned GWIII. It’s gotten a new lease on life and the writing is coming together with a lot less effort. Sometimes writing is like pulling teeth. This is like the other times, when it’s more like channeling. So, happy happy!
Horsebackriding. I have been working with a mare named Roxy, who is so much fun. I end up thinking every horse that I ride is the best! horse! ever! and she’s pretty cool. She’s a little small for me, at about 14.3 hands or so (I haven’t measured her exactly) but I like small horses.
A new puppy. How much fun can a new puppy be! Franklin affords endless amusement, but he also eats baseboards. Sigh.
Then there’s the usual stuff — work, home, groceries, teaching my daughter to drive a standard (ah, that’s where my head has been at recently), dieting (weight watchers, fairly successful), and I dunno, the stuff of life.
I’m sorry for neglecting the five of you that come by periodically.
How are you?
