First, I must apologize for my unannounced, two-year writing break. About half-way through my pregnancy, I dropped out of cyberspace as I prepared for our baby’s arrival, and once the baby did come, I was so busy nursing and changing diapers and trying to get her to sleep, I didn’t have time or energy for much else. Oh, right, and I was still working as a Resident Director! Did I mention that? TWO 24/7 jobs is WAY too much for anyone to be expected to handle.
I am now a full-time, stay-at-home mom, and my baby is now a rambunctious 18-month-old who has FINALLY figured out how to take at least one 1-hour nap per day. (Whew! She did not get this no-sleeping thing from me! I need a nap...) At last, I have one hour of blissful peace and quiet all to myself each day. Now that I’m mostly proficient at keeping us in clean clothes and I’ve learned to ignore how badly the house needs a thorough cleaning, I have a little bit of time to write again. Yay!
To be honest, I have no idea how often I’ll actually get to post here, but I’m shooting for once a week to start. Maybe if I get faster at the whole editing thing, I’ll get to post more often, but since I’m just starting back, we’re going to take it slow.
Enjoy! I’m looking forward to reading your comments and learning from you!
