Dropping the ball

I'm taking a small, small hiatus from the blog while I edit my novel to send back to my agent. Only for a couple of weeks. I've been a bit single-focused over here, so I'm almost done. But, given that...

--My refrigerator is lacking milk, fresh vegetables (unless you count some 4 week old basil) and all the basics one is supposed to have with medium-sized children in the house. 

--I haven't even bothered to write down all the daily tasks on my to-do list. It would just serve as an accusation, 'cause they ain't getting done. 

--I'm doing only a so-so job, if that, on a charity event I'm supposed to be working on.

--I'm almost to the point of dish-detergent-as-shampoo, since I haven't been to the drugstore.

--My husband is tired of sharing the bed with a MacBook.

--I nearly forgot to pick my daughters up from school last week.

...the blog has been bumped to a low priority.

See you all soon!

Wah, wah. Sorry, but I'm a whiner. OK, fine. Go away and leave us here praying for representation. But seriously, take your time and get your ms as spit-shined as possible. We'll be here rooting for you from the sidelines.;-)

PS: Is there something wrong with using dishwasher detergent as shampoo?

Good luck! I know the feeling. Don't ask the last time I did the laundry, LOL! (I don't know what it feels like to have an agent, just to drop the ball, LOL!)

Good luck!

Debbie--I'll be back soon, promise!

Spy--Laundry. Uh, yeah, that too.

Good luck Wendy! I can't think of a better reason to put us all on hold, especially if this frees up 20 minutes to buy food and shampoo. :)

good luck with edits! I know what you mean about getting so involved with something other things are forgotten- have had same problem recently! We'll miss you while you're "hiating" (yes, that IS a word, dang it, because I said so!)

Thanks, Colby and Melanie. I feel kind of lazy because it's not as if I update my blog all that often anyway. Maybe I am just need to assuage the guilt about knowing I haven't updated.

Melanie Avila said...

Lazy? You're the opposite of lazy. Please don't feel guilty for us. :)

Happy editing!

I know how you feel!! I wish I could have used the same excuse for dropping my blog. Maybe someday....
Looking forward to seeing you soon!!!

We'll be here when your work is done. (Call the pizza guy for the kids. They won't mind.) :)

It's a glorious problem you have. We shall await your return without resentment.

Or maybe just a little.

Lawd, I'll be in your shoes soon - neglecting blog and husband and dog and house and food and sleep and .....etc...

good luck with the edits!

Missed this one!

But it was all with good reason. GOOD reason.
