I know it’s been a while. Feels like both a long time and no time at all. I’ve received several messages on here, via email and on Facebook asking about Summering and its status. The short answer: it’s still in progress. Why is it taking me so long? Where have I been? Did I fall off the face of the earth?
No. I didn’t fall off the earth, but close – in a way. I was pregnant. I was due in December, but our bundle of joy joined us in November instead – almost 4 weeks early. So, many of the things I hoped to get done (like finishing up her room, some organization around the house as well as finishing Summering) didn’t happen. My doctor “grounded” me about a month before I was due and planned to get a lot done with the “extra” time off. Little did I know my life would change before I expected. So, between the holidays and my little girl, this first time mom was busy!
I think I’m finally getting the hang of things and I’m ready to, slowly, get back to things in my life pre-baby. First on the list, my writing. I want to get some chapters written before I go back to work next month. I may not be ready to do anything physical, but writing, I can. Wish me luck!
Thanks to those who wrote in desperation, curiosity and desire for book 5. I didn’t forget about you or Liz and Patrick. Life was just on hiatus for a bit, but I’m back and anxious to get to it!
