The last week has been my ‘work deadline’ week in which I produce a monthly mini-magazine for our church. It involves some writing, a good bit of editing, some photography, some arm-twisting (to get others to write for me), a whole lot of design and layout and seriously little sleep. Did I mention that I don’t get to sleep much? The entire process has a way of reducing my brain to a pile of mush that quivers if you look at it too hard.
The good news is that I delivered it safely to the printers on Wed, and I’m slowly catching up on my home & my family. I feel like I’ve been trawling the bottom of the ocean in deep dark isolation. At last! I’m being let up to see the sun and breathe air again! I’m still soggy and muddy and in serious need of some catch-up-zzzz’s… but I’m up.
The best part of all this is… I get to visit with you lovely lot again! I’ve spent some time each morning skimming through the latest posts while my brain slowly surfaces over a cup of tea. I don’t want to feel completely cut off. But rounding up enough coherent braincells to produce a vaguely meaningful post? Not a chance.
On a different tack, I do want to take a moment to crack open a bottle of the best cyber-champagne to celebrate some wonderful news. My lovely friend Kerri Maniscalco has landed herself an agent! How nice is that! You should go see what she’s up to, so much fun.
Well folks, the low battery light is blinking furiously in my head and I should probably quit while I’m ahead before I start to dribble drivel through my sleepy fingers.
It has been so nice to see you again! 🙂
