It's Been a While

Wow. It's been quite a while since my last post. Hmmm...I really need to make time to post more often.

Let's see. What's happened in the past 8 or 9 months? My job is going really well. I've been super busy and loving every minute of it.

JAM, KAM & the kids were transferred to North Carolina & I really miss them. They had moved in with us for a few months while they waited for housing. It was noisy & crowded, but we all muddled through. I can't wait to go visit them and see my babies again.

I still have all my other babies, though. Z is growing like crazy and he's such a good little boy. So sweet. HNM is gonna have another baby in September so there will be even more to love. And her boyfriend's daughter S is a cutie. Our family will soon outgrow our house. Thanksgiving dinner here last year was fun, but crowded. But I loved doing it and it will now be a tradition. Thanksgiving dinner will always be at our house.

My writing isn't doing so great these days. I've worked on Rebel Union and worked on it and worked on it, but I never seemed to get anywhere. Jack refuses to talk to me and I can't seem to get past the first couple of chapters in edits. Nothing seems to be working.

MCRW's retreat is next weekend and I'm hoping I can get some real writing done. I'm thinking of starting something new and letting Rebel Union sit for awhile. Maybe I'll go back to it later and Jack will finally be ready to open up. Until then I really need to get something else going. Especially if I want to go to nationals in July. Atlanta is so close I can't NOT go. But I need to have a finished MS or I'll feel like I'm wasting all that money.

That's pretty much it in a nutshell. Hopefully it won't take so long for me to post again. :-)
