Things have been a little...or rather, alot...out of whack these past few months. I have hardly read anything. Maybe I'm going through some kind of mid-life crisis or something. I miss my blog. I miss all of your blogs. I miss reading. My mom and I are going away this weekend to the RT convention for the signing Saturday and to hang out with the most awesome Amanda McIntyre Friday night. I'm psyched about that. I need this break something awful. And I'm hoping that being surrounded by so many other book lovers that it will reignite my passion again. I miss it dearly! I can't use work as an excuse anymore for my lack of reading. A lot of you do it everyday, and if you can do it, well, so can I!
I'm still working at Briarwood. Which reminds me, I went to see the lovely Anne Bishop again the other day and had to tell her about Briarwood! She thought it was funny. Anne didn't know back in March what she would be writing next, but I'm super happy to say that she is revisiting her Ephemera world! I'm thinking there really is no cure for Briarwood. It is the pretty poison. I can't seem to get away from the place. You see, I gave my notice that I was quitting and tomorrow was supposed to be my last day, but I am staying a few more weeks. I wonder what's going to happen when those few weeks pass, will I still be there? I just don't want to leave them in a bind, you know. And there is this other job that I am hoping to get but the position doesn't open til the end of May. So I have time that I can stay at Briarwood for a bit longer.
And then the other day, my husband was diagnosed with Diabetes :(. He started not feeling well a few months ago, and lost several pounds. He went to the doc, had some blood work done and his glucose was ridiculously high. So now he's on meds for that.
I hope to start a routine with visiting all your blogs again like I used to. I need to learn how to manage my time better, but sometimes I'm just so tired after working all day. I'd rather just watch a movie than try to read. It hurts my eyes and I'm nearly asleep after only a few pages...and it has nothing to do with the content and writing! My job at the calendar kiosk was nothing compared to this job cooking! I suppose my body is getting used to the hard work, but damn it, I don't want to get used to it! But I do get lots of yummy desserts to eat everyday!
Anyway, I'm going to try and be a better blogger. Heck, I've been away so long it seems, most of you might not even care about lil ole me anymore :P. I hope not though, because I do miss you all! And I have books to talk about...not yet, but soon...I hope anyway! LOL Well, there is one book that I have a review for that I'll be posting soon. I loved it! And the first one. Haunting Warrior by Erin Quinn! She is such an amazing writer. I'm actually reading another of her books now. Whispers, under her other name, Erin Grady. Fabulous also, and like I mentioned to her, I cannot figure out why the book is out of print. It's eerie and suspenseful...very well done. Maybe I'll finish it soon!
I hope you all have a wonderful night!
Until next time...
