Hellooooo! I'm so excited! I bought a new computer. An I-MAC (choir sang as I opened the box). Holy Lord, I had no idea my old computer was so freaking slow. Blogging had become more like post, watch the wheel, and repeat. And for those of you who still have that whole word recognition thingy in order to post, I nearly had a brain aneurism every time I tried to post on your blog. It took me like an hour to visit four blogs. Not cool!! After awhile, I gave up and just decided to write and then when I was ready, I'd get back into it. Well, wheel watching was going to cause me head trauma. And apparently, my husband had been planning to kill me if he heard me yell Gah, one more time (that's not nice). So, the hubbs refused to allow me to bang my head into the computer desk a day longer. Like a crazy person, he drove me to Best Buy to buy a new computer. IN A SNOW STORM. How romantic. NOT! Actually, it was pretty scary, even touch and go there for a minute. Rest assured I strapped Mac in on the way home. Hello, safety first. I cannot wait to see what everyone has been up to. I bet half of you are published already and I so missed it while wheel watching. NO MORE! I will be stalking you shortly.

It's been just over a month since my last blog. Looks like I'm starting to develop a pattern. Finding the time to blog or blog hop has become next to impossible, and for awhile, I really struggled with it. But I know writers understand. There's the push to get out there, market yourself a little, but I'm not one of those people who can multitask so well. I run a business, a family, and I try to write. Blogging can take up valuable time. Time I need to write, and time I need to spend with my critique partners so that someday I might have something to market besides my name and also something to blog about. So, I thought I'd formally announce a sabbatical even though most of you have already gathered as much. I'm still here, so if you need me, shoot me an email. I'd love to help out if I can. And when I'm done with my WIP, or even find a moment to say hello, I will. Till then, I hope you're well, writing, loving, and learning. Happy writing people.
