I haven’t lost interest in my blog; I’ve just been busy. On Tuesday my eldest daughter and I leave to visit Cathleen and Patrick O’Hannigan in North Carolina, and I set Monday as the deadline for getting my book proposal in the mail to a publisher.
Which book? Why, the book I had practically finished a year and some odd months ago when I started this blog. The book this blog effectively killed. Well, the blog and the column and homeschooling the kids all had a hand in putting a stake through the metaphorical heart of my manuscript.
I hate not finishing things I start, so I swore I’d get the proposal in the mail before we left for the Tar Heel State. It’s going to be close, but I think I’m going to make it, especially if my husband takes all the kids down to Magdalena tomorrow.
Once I get to North Carolina, where I will have my laptop, wireless internet, only one child to take care of, and no household to run, I should have lots of time to write many erudite and/or controversial blog posts.
Or maybe I’ll just sit on the porch and drink mint juleps.
