Let me explain. No, there's too much. Let me sum up.

So the past few months have been ... insane. I quit my job to take another in Chicago. Which is almost three hours away from where I live. Yes, this will necessitate a relocation. We're putting our house on the market in the spring. In the meantime I'll get an apartment. In the mean-meantime, I'm staying with a friend three or four nights a week. I'm making new friends and staying in contact with old ones. I don't see my husband very much. My cats miss me (I think. It's hard to tell with cats). My guitar-playing has screeched to a halt. For a while there my writing took a hit. 

It's rough living in one city and working in another. 

I'm settling into something like a routine, even though that routine is convoluted and strange. I'm glad I took the job--it's a great blend of my Med Tech background and my writing background for one thing, and I'm having a lot of great experiences for another--but oof. Now that I've got a bit of structure, the writing is coming back. I'm *this close* to finishing the WIP. I've got three stories and an essay to write by the end of the year, and I'm confident that will happen. I'm leading the Library at Origins Game Fair this year, and things are falling into place with that. 

I'm even inspired enough to at least think about blogging here a bit more often. Nuts, huh? 

Anyway, that's what's been up with me. How's your life?

    So! I'm blowing the dust off the blog to say a few things. 1. I blog sooooo much less since I started using twitter. But then you already knew…

  • Oy.

    So I've joined a fall softball league. I had practice tonight, and I am stiff. I suspect tomorrow I will sore. It's been awhile since…
