Oy, I always get so sad when I go too long between blog posts! Back in the sweet, halcyon days when I was pregnant with Aidan and knew so much less than I know now, I thought I’d have loads of time for blogging. Surely I’d have more time to blog when I stayed at home, yes?
No. No, young Erika. Just no.
Oh, well. I’m sure many of the people who used to read my malcontent ramblings about my evil erstwhile boss are long gone, as are the people who started reading because they enjoyed my pregnancy updates. All that’s left are you hardy souls who don’t mind waiting a few days (or weeks) between blog posts (or maybe do, but decline to email me about it).
So what have I been doing? Well. Let me tell you.
I’ve been doing NaNoWriMo, where and when I can. Sometimes that means writing 100 words while Aidan watches a documentary about helicopters, at other times that means cranking out 3,000 at a Starbucks while Wes watches the kids.
I don’t think I’ll make it to 50,000 words by November, but that’s okay. To be honest, I’m just proud of myself for writing in the first place what with the daily shenanigans of raising two tiny humans. The story I’m working on is pretty cool, and I’m enjoying it a lot. It’s the kind of story that sticks with me pretty easily, so if I can’t write for a few days at a time I have no trouble picking back up where I left off.
As for what else I’ve been doing, I’ve been supporting Wes as he starts his own business (you can check it out here, it’s pretty cool). He’s basically working two full time jobs right now, which means he rarely sleeps. He just got back from Las Vegas, where he attended the Microsoft SharePoint Conference to launch his company.
It’s pretty exciting stuff, starting a company. He’s designed this amazing SharePoint application software thingie that is making people’s heads explode all over the place. Microsoft is pretty excited about it, too. They showed it off in a huge presentation at the conference. Crazy!
So that’s what’s going on with me. I’m working on my hobby (writing), and Wes is working on his hobby (entrepreneurship). We’re busy and fulfilled and sleep deprived and chock full of exciting stories about how busy and sleep deprived we are.
