Some of you have noticed my silence these past six weeks. Well a lot, and I mean a lot, has happened:
- I moved less than ten miles away–though this seems like it would be a quick and easy move, it was not. I have never had such long and frustrating move in my life…and that includes moving across the country. On the plus side, I am now more in the country than ever, and when on Saturday morning at 2am I had to chase our dog around the yard wearing nothing but a T-shirt and a pair of drawers, I didn’t even think about what I’d been doing until I came in to find my husband standing by the window laughing at me.
- THE Program at my church that I’ve been going over with a little group of kids for the past two months finally happened–this included dozens of burning candles, some of which were being handled by 10-13 year olds, in our new sanctuary. Considering how our numbers fluctuated each week as to how many participants were going to be there and gaining one three days before, and another the night before, it went very well.
- The candy acorns were a hit! Everyone ate them, as opposed to the snack one of the other mother’s sent! The Oreo turkey was a total fail. Kudos to anyone who can make a whole batch of those. They’re messy, involved and to a woman who is not great with careful food preparation (I’m a mix-it-all-together, type gal), they were too much for me.
- I’ve officially signed up for the May 2013 Romantic Times Booklovers Convention. This time it’ll be in Kansas City, Mo. If you’re close to there, please come see me. I got to meet a handful of readers last year in Chicago who came out to see me. I’ll admit it was a bit nerve-wracking at first, but hey, it’s a one time thing. I’m still looking into other places to go.
I hope you all had a terrific holiday and now that I can partially breathe again, I hope to post a little more often.
