Oh Yeah. I Have a Blog Over Here


I have learned something about myself over the last few months. I'm not as good at multi-tasking as I thought I was. I've had this blog sitting around for awhile. I meant to have it as a place to write non-sci/fi related posts but I never really used it that much. Or when I did I used it as a place to complain about my family. As my husband would say--that's not sexy.

In a way it's been a good thing that I haven't wanted to use this page in awhile. In many respects it's because I haven't had a lot of family drama to whine about-- and that's nothing but a good thing. My family hasn't all of a sudden turned normal, that would be too much to hope for don't you think? Mostly they went silent for awhile. We've slowly gotten back into communication, though it doesn't amount to much more than how are you doing? I'm doing fine... But in my world that can be a very relaxing thing-- and it has been.

I haven't given up the idea that I can write posts that are more personal without being depressing, but lately I've been putting those kinds of posts on my sci-fi blog because I've gotten too lazy to keep up more than one page.


But then I got a laptop computer for Christmas. It's pink people! And now I'm looking for excuses to hop on the computer and write something. I don't know if this will be a permanent state (maybe that isn't such a good thing if I intend to have a life).

But as I sit here, in my living room, rocking in the recliner while my husband channel surfs, I'm on my computer. Oh sure. It's no big deal. To you! But I have been chained to my computer desk forever! And now I can move around! Look at me, typing on my counter top! Oh look, I'm surfing the web in my bedroom! I'm typing and sitting in the recliner!

Very nice.

But does that mean I'm going to be using this blog more? I doubt it. I've decided that I don't really feel like separating my personal life from my other blogs anymore. I mean really. Who cares if I keep my personal stuff all neat and tidy and segregated? So I'm throwing caution into the wind and putting personal posts up on my other blog. What the heck. I'm going to live dangerously for awhile. And I hope to see the few of you who come here over on my other site. It'd be nice to see you now and then.
