The Absence of Time


Funny how there are twenty four looong hours in a day, but you still seem to be wishing for more so you can get things done.  Also, why do some hours move quick while others seem to drag on to eternity? A common conundrum I suppose, but I still wonder where much of my time goes when I realize I haven’t blogged or written or even been able to read much.

It’s been a while since I’ve been “here”, but life has been hectic and blog ideas have been scarce. I know it’s no excuse when I could be doing some research or finishing books to review, but I have to admit that I’d been putting “real” life ahead of reading and writing lately. Sorry!

I’ve missed this though and will try to get back on schedule even though life is still quite bumpy and those hours haven’t multiplied. I suppose I could try for less sleep and more writing. Maybe middle of the night writing!

So perhaps you’re wondering what’s kept me so busy lately (or maybe you don’t really care, but I’m going to tell anyway…)

Pwease hoomin, no more baffs!

Welp, firstly, we got a new pet and we’re kind of obsessed with her. Meet Princess Puck, the African Pygmy Hedgehog. She’s so awesome she even has her own Facebook page and Tumblr (we’re ridiculous and we know it…)






Then there was a trip to Florida to spend time with my parents. Sadly, my father is not doing well

We did get this cute shot together during a walk on the beach though.

and family is important.  It meant a lot to be able to spend the time with them even if it meant taking a break from writing (I did have my laptop with me, but decided whatever I produced down there would probably end up being cut in the end as I really wasn’t in the right frame of mind for it.).



Epcot says this will be us in the future!

The folks were super nice and gifted us a day at a park of our choice (the boy had never been to FL let alone a Disney park!) so we opted for Epcot since we figured we could get through most of it in a day, unlike some of the other parks.  It was fun but GAH! Sooooo hot!





Once we got back from that trip, we each spent some time at work and then took a quick little get

We have one more quick summer adventure coming up next month, but we’ve finally settled in a little more in the new place and I’m back at my writing group and, I promise, I’ve been working on Driven a bit. I may have to pencil in writing time and turn down some invitations, but it will get done and I’ll be more available in the digital world (Twitter misses me, I know).

How do you guys handle busy summertime plans and writing?
