Every day, I invite hundreds of people into my home. We laugh, we cry, we banter. I love the company and can’t wait until the next day to start all over again. I have had to put myself on restriction. Last night, I had to cull my email. I was getting dozens hundreds a day and being the anal person that I am, I couldn’t go to bed without reading them all. Most of them I just have to respond to. It’s my nature.
Until I retired, I was a social butterfly in real life. Things changed after I found myself going out less and less. Sometimes I think people just don’t understand me. I am open-minded, and have a weird sense of humor. I am often opinionated and just plain “Out There”. I care about you and I love being an integral part of your lives. I am; however, sleep deprived, because sometimes I am reading email until 3:00- 4:00 in the morning, (and I get up at 6am-7am).
I am also not getting much work done around here. There are clothes in the washer, clothes in the dryer, enough dog hair on the floor to stuff mattress with, and a sink full of dirty dishes every time I turn around, no matter how many times I empty and load the dishwasher.
So, if you don’t see me around so much in comments anymore, know that I haven’t forgotten you. I will still post SOMETHING almost every day. I will still review my Reader thirty minutes in the morning and thirty minutes every evening. I still love what you do and am grateful to be part of your family and friends. My next book IS REALLY going to get written. (Seriously, it must!) And most of all, I LOVE YOU!
