Um, a little overwhelmed
Yes, yes, I've been reminded by everyone and my husband that I haven't been posting regularly.

I'm really fucking busy, people!!!

Writing
  • I just finished two writing classes which, on the whole weren't all that satisfying but definitely piqued my interest in taking more
  • I am trying to be a halfway decent writing partner (at which I am failing MISERABLY)
  • I am attempting to start my 4th rewrite on the book that will not die
  • Wrote an article for Frontiers Magazine (pub. 8/14, I think)
  • Currently the International AIDS Conference is occurring in Mexico City and I wanted to cover it but I only have so much brain/time

Designing

  • I am decorating a two bedroom condo in Palm Springs (about which I am so excited I want to pop) which involves actually spending time in Palm Springs
  • I have about 30 or so unfinished objects (UFOs) in my craft room that must be dealt with
  • Ideally, over the summer I would have redesigned my website and moved it over to Wordpress but that didn't really work out

Biker stuff
I am working on the 50th anniversary gala of the Oedipus Motorcycle Club which includes:
  • designing an art piece to be used as centerpieces
  • learning to use an oxy-acetylene torch
  • creating platters out of motorcycle parts
  • baking and decorating 400 cupcakes
  • designing and creating a leather flag
  • creating 32 table runners
  • trying to get gay men to sit down and keep on topic during a meeting

Wifely duties (HA!)

  • We had some health and home issues last month. TGIAugust.
  • Keeping up my end of the bargain

Work

  • I have a full time job which I would love to keep
  • I have interviewed 3 times for a job that I would love to have

So there. That is what I've been doing.

I am NOT complaining. Everything that I am doing I signed up for and I'm really quite excited about. I only wish I didn't have a full time job so that I could work on all of this fun stuff full time, but that's not the way it works in Casa Queer. Unfortunately, being a good blogger sorta got thrown under the bus too, even if I really, really, really want to be writing on here every day. Which I do. Swear to FSM.

Yeah, what they said - and it seems like there's a general lack of blogging mojo stalking the innerwebs, virtually *everyone* is in the same boat! (We might also be paddling in different directions, which could account for none of us being very writerly at the momennt). But that's ok on account of, you're worth waiting for.

Since I haven't updated my blog since (whispers) January 1st, I would be the last person to cast aspersions. It sounds like you need to give yourself a break - or indeed several of them. Relax, take a rest, and don't worry about us. We'll be here when you get back. :-)

I kind of hate to leave a comment, as really, you are too busy to read it. Fun post, if a little exhausting to ponder.
