Coming Clean

Ok, so I totally f'd up.
On top of not posting forever, I tried to give my blog a new look and lo and behold I lost my old html coding (that I customized) and am stuck with this new one until I have time to figure something else out.

Over the last couple months (my hiatus), I have realized I need an extra set of hands so I hired an intern.  You know, someone to help me out around the house: cooking, cleaning, laundry, dog walking, organizing my mountain of mail, and keeping my desk in order.  Then I woke up.

I did not hire an intern, a housekeeper, and editor or an assistant but have realized over the last 6 months I cannot do it all myself and something had to give so I took a break from this blog. Now I am back and it looks like crap so we will all have to get over that real fast because guess time to write new code!

I have been busy writing and reading a TON.  I am ready to submit some work, but am doing some research on that currently as to where, if they allow concurrent submissions, etc. I think in order for my dreams to come true, I have to release some stuff into the universe because I doubt a publisher is going to come knocking on my door (unless, you know one - in that case, send them my way).

The other thing I have learned during this time is when you don't work in an office full time, you work more than full time. From the moment I rise, I am checking email and give it one more glance before retiring for the night. I have been pretty good about taking the last couple weekends off, still scanning email for junk mail but not picking up and working on projects.  It is hard to find balance in today's world, but I am getting more of a grip on it with each passing day.

With that said, it is Labor Day and time to shut down for the day.
Hope I still have readers, if this time doesn't stick, I think I will pack it up at the end of the year and leave this blog world for something else.
