I want to thank everyone who has ever nominated me for an award. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it, and how it tickles me inside and makes my day! I wouldn’t have anything without my readers, and it is so sweet to know that they feel they want to pass these awards on to me.
That said, I want to say that from now on, I am going to politely decline any awards. I know that many do decline the awards, and it goes against my better judgement, because I like passing them out as though they were candy. Thing is, they are very time-consuming. I hope I’m not offending anyone by saying that, but if you’ve been on here very long at all, there comes a point where you begin to look the other direction, much like when the teacher is looking for someone to call on, and you don’t want to be THE ONE!
I am slightly overwhelmed here lately, and have been incredibly STRESSED OUT. I put my head down the other day for just a moment, and then I couldn’t find it again. I’m not sure what I did with it, but I know it’s around here somewhere. So this is an attempt to rein in whatever stresses may be out there that I can do without. I’m beginning to think this might resemble rambling, but it’s 12:39 AM, and I’m not usually up this late. I’ve got so many irons in the fire that I’ve lost count, and as you can clearly see I’m beginning to sound like someone without a logical train of thought.
So, my main focus is to return to writing in all its various forms, and sift through the mountains of paperwork (I’d show you a picture of my desk, but you’d probably think it was an overdone mock-up–which I assure you it wouldn’t be) and get a little more organized so that I might find my head again–and my dining room table. It’s probably on my desk under all the papers–my head, that is.
Now if I could just get my boys to sign up for slave labor, I’d be closer to a Zen state…
