not quite dead (and an anniversary!)

Wow. That was something of a hiatus. Two months. I didn’t think it would be that long.

I blame stress.

Some things have changed since I was last here. The word count meter has gone up several thousand words– I’m a chapter away now from finishing my third draft. It looks like I’ll have a nice steady job teaching here in Idaho; they’ve added a third class for next fall. It’s not a high-paying job, but I enjoy it when it’s not driving me crazy. I also have gotten myself a new boyfriend. His very catholic family has not met me, but very much do not approve nonetheless (mostly because I’m protestant– I feel as if I’m in Ireland). Oh, and I’m getting some baby chicks in a few weeks. In the mail. It’s all very strange.

Moving on!

I promised everyone an anniversary announcement. As of last March, this blog is one year old! As of today, we’ve seen 13,857 hits since opening. Huzzah! Thanks to everyone who’s contributed to this blog! You’re all wonderful.

I’ll be busy for a few weeks yet, then blessedly free when the school semester ends. Nonetheless, I’ve neglected this blog for far too long. Expect regular posts from me in the near future.

Cheers!

Eliza

To keep the ones you ordered warm. T
