My adorbs friend Erynn texted last night to ask if I'm ok because I've been so blog-silent. She even asked me to rate my life on a scale of 1-10 to with 1 being the s*#@%! and 10 being AWESOME!
Anyway, it reminded me that I really should update here. I'm actually doing fine, but I have been a little busier than usual, and I'm still figuring out how to manage this new busy-ness. I've gone back on the schedule at TKE (I'm working 2-3 days a week), and I've also been writing a little more for the Trib. Last week I had three pieces in the paper, including . . .
This one based on an experience which reminded me why I'm kind of glad I don't have little kids anymore (EVEN THOUGH MY GRANKIDS ARE FABULOUS).
And there was this one where I discuss recently released Halloween books.
And then there was this one, which the Trib actually asked me to write. They wanted something about conference. I wrote it a little reluctantly, actually, because they've already got Kirby and Peggy doing the Mormon stuff. Also, the comments get so STUPID whenever Mormon World gets mentioned in Trib, which just gets exhausting, frankly. But I think (I hope) it worked out ok. And that column certainly got much more traction than either of the other pieces. Maybe I should just write about Mormons, Mormons, Mormons all the damn time.
Here's hoping I keep up the blogging.
