Hey all, just a note that I'm sorry that I've not been around very much lately. I figure a short explanation is due. Recently, we've had some houseguests, er, that isn't quite true, we've had some tenants. Yep, real live people, come to live with us.
Now, my house isn't huge, and three new people, including a toddler and a kindergartner, kind of crowds things up. A lot. Sigh. I find that my evenings that used to be quiet and uneventful, are not full of screaming kids, breaking glass, and discovering anything smaller than a grape is fair game for being swallowed.
When I have time, I write posts for here. Which means I'll do a week or so in advance and schedule them
(except this one, which I'm doing Thursday night). Something I never did before, mostly because I couldn't get it to work, but I'm not actually spending very much time actually online. I'm grabbing moments here and there and doing the best I can. But I've not been responding to comments to my posts very well, or at all, and have been late, or spotty about visiting others.
It'll take me a bit to find a new equilibrium. I wasn't the best at doing those things anyway, and this has only magnified my problem. So, there are things you can do to help.
I thank you in advance.
2) Only post when I'm ready for you to.
3) Since I do get email notifications to comments from others, I think I'll try responding that way for a while. I receive them from others like that and I really dig it. I'm curious if anyone has opinions on that they care to share?
4) Don't think I'm being snooty, I realize everyone who stops by is doing so to support me as a fellow writer, or at least as a fellow blogger. I doubt any of my words are so golden that any feels they are incomplete for not reading them. I understand that, and I thank everyone for being so generous with their time by stopping by as often as they do. I super promise that I... wait, I better rephrase that... I really hope to find a way to make sure everyone understands how much I appreciate it.
Since I suck at expressing myself in any way that resembles sincerity, I'll try not to screw it up.
Anyone besides me think this FTL neutrino thing (I found the actual paper... here) will prove to be a big bunch of BS? I've got a bet with Danette riding on the outcome.
