Oh, long neglected blog, I'm sorry. I promise I haven't forgotten you. It's just that sometimes life intervenes.

For me, life intervening right now equals:
-Holiday madness: 3 huge Saturday bashes in a row, planned by yours truly. 1. My mom's 60th, 2. Christmas day, complete with cornish game hen for thirteen people, 3. Avonlea's 1st birthday party with family.

-Finishing Fall Semester: Three weeks of classes after a nice long Christmas break would be hard for anyone. Add to that cleaning out my desk and training my replacement, and I had a pretty intense January.

-Writing: Oh the joy! I'm working hard to finish my novel in time for a literary conference in August. More on that later, but I've been very absorbed. And now that I'm home with Avonlea too, I haven't had much time to spare between chasing her around and beavering away on the manuscript.

All of this to say, my reasons are noble and many, but I realize it can't go on like this forever. Lots of posts to come, as I'm able. :)
